If girls have ideas, they will scare boys away and end up alone. I just learned this from an abstinence-only-until-marriage program called "Choosing the Best."
According to the program’s own website, "Choosing the Best" has reached more than 3 million young people in the United States. The federal goverment currently spends more than $900,000 to teach this program in schools.
This is Part Two in our weekly video series highlighting actual lessons from actual abstinence-only-until-marriage programs. With your help, Part One ("Drink the Spit") has been viewed more than 40,000 times on YouTube in the past week — and the count is still rising. Thousands of people have seen the video on Facebook and it has been featured on dozens of websites and blogs.
And just this morning, a national radio show on DC station Hot 99.5 did a full ten minute segment about this video — including a call-in discussion with listeners about the outrageous content and harmful messages of abstinence-only programs.
We can’t thank you enough for all your help spreading the word about this series! We hope you enjoy this new installment just as much. As always, feel free to share it far and wide…
