Teenage Purity Rings

 December 31, 2008

Kioni Lansbury was told she could not wear her purity ring to school, which was a violation of her rights (see story below)

A recently released study is claiming teenage virginity pledges do not work. I disagree. Have they questioned the millions of teens who’ve made this pledge, to see how many adhered to it and how many did not. To release such broad statements after having surveyed a small sampling of the Christian population is irresponsible and inaccurate. There are many Christians that wait until marriage to have sex. To release and tout such a questionable study as fact is to disregard and dishonor them for the character and integrity they’ve shown.

7 Factors That Foster Teen Virginity, Pledge or No Pledge

December 30, 2008 11:49 AM ET | Bernadine Healy M.D. – Pledges of no sex until marriage don’t work, especially if taken by 15- or 16-year-olds, according to a recent study in the journal Pediatrics. Despite broken promises, however, virginity-pledging teens were considerably more conservative in their overall sexual behaviors than teens in general—a fact that many media reports have missed cold. In other words, the act of making a virginity pledge doesn’t appear to affect a teen’s future sexual behavior. But the kind of teen who takes a pledge is the kind who’s already likely to be sexually restrained throughout adolescence.

Teenager banned from wearing Christian purity ring says school discriminated against her faith

A 12-year-old girl claims her school has discriminated against her faith after banning her from wearing a Christian purity ring. Kioni Lansbury was ordered to remove the jewellery, which shows her commitment to no sex before marriage, after a teaching assistant spotted it in class.

She now says that The Kings School in Ottery St Mary, Devon, should be supporting her stand against promiscuity – and that her purity ring is a religious symbol like the Muslim hijab. ‘Lots of girls sleep around and this ban does not give the right message to others. I want to keep myself pure,’ Kioni said.

Pastor’s Sex Comment Stirs The Press

 November 30, 2008

 

Ed Young

Ed Young, who is a pastor I’ve seen on television several times over the years, issued a challenge to married couples, during one of his recent sermons, stating they should have sex for seven days to spark the romance in their lives. Who knew this would be so controversial, as it grabbed the attention of the mainstream press nationwide. It was written about in hundreds of publications.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about regarding his statements. God created sex. It is normal. He made it as a means for married couples to get closer to each other and also for reproduction. The preacher was passing on God’s message from the Bible. However, it shows the inaccurate view the mainstream press has about Christians.

7 Days Of Sex Challenge

 7 straight days of sex. That was the challenge Pastor Ed Young issued to all of the married couples at his Grapevine church. Too taboo, or right on time? Whatever your opinion, this conversation and tonight’s story is strictly for adults. KLTV 7′s Layron Livingston sat down with some local pastors to see if the message could make its way to your church’s pulpit.

“Everybody’s whining about the economy and about the world….let’s move from whining to whoopee!” The message caught some members of Fellowship Church by surprise, and its perking the ears of East Texans.

“Between a married man and a married woman…the more, the better.” …
