NPR pushing abstinence

NPR pushing abstinence

Who woulda thunk it? National Public Radio pushing abstinence.

Miss Kelly heard a commentary on All Things Considered in which a 31-year-old woman talked about why she had remained a virgin until marriage. Interestingly, she was able to argue for the value of abstinence without having to make an appeal to religious values, something that Planned Parenthood and the anti-abstinence crowd trying to get abstinence-only programs tossed out of schools say is not possible. Miss Kelly says:

She also notes that while most brides and grooms today boogie the night away at their wedding reception, she and her groom were outta there in record time, they couldn’t wait to begin their honeymoon.  A very touching commentary, and remarkable for being on NPR, bastion of liberal-think that it is.

Funny how modesty/chastity is almost considered rebellious today.  But in a time where not only colleges, but even middle schools and high schools are distributing birth control, it is counter-cultural to abstain from sex.  The rebellious kids today are the ones who aren’t buying into casual sex or “friends with benefits.”  The pendulum is swinging back, methinks, and that’s a good thing.
