Today, Rainbow Bear learned about marriage — and his class put on a fake wedding. More actual lessons from actual abstinence-only-until-marriage programs…Your tax dollars at work!
You want references? Here you go:
- The exercise in which students write down what they are looking for in an opposite-sex partner is from "Choosing the Best."
- The mock wedding and imagining your wedding ceremony comes from "WAIT (Why Am I Tempted)."
- Both "Choosing the Best" and "WAIT" include lessons teaching about the unhealthy and harmful effects of unmarried cohabitation.
- "WAIT" also directs students to imagine every detail of their wedding day, although the specific direction to imagine your beautiful bride comes from "Heritage Keepers."
Next week, we’ll be finishing off this series before the holidays — but we’ll definitely be back in 2011 with some exciting new projects! Again, everyone here at Amplify and Advocates for Youth is incredibly grateful for your help and enthusiasm getting the word out about this series!
Rainbow Bear’s story a sad one — but it needs to be told. Make sure you take the time to post it and send it around!
