That is what our dear leader and his administration wants taught to the school children of America. Aside from the fact that there is no study that shows abstinence instruction does a damned thing to reduce STD's or preteen pregnancy or any of the other problems associated with "non-abstinence", there is the sheer hipocrisy of the situation. Al Franken made fun of the Abstinence crowd in one of his books where he asked Republican leaders to give examples of their own experiences with "abstinence"...Doesn't appear that there were any.
Now, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced guidelines for organizations applying for grants for abstinence-only education programs.
this is your government in action, folks...Morons!
Abstinence curricula must have a clear definition of sexual abstinence which must be consistent with the following: “Abstinence means voluntarily choosing not to engage in sexual activity until marriage. Sexual activity refers to any type of genital contact or sexual stimulation between two persons including, but not limited to, sexual intercourse.”
...Throughout the entire curriculum, the term “marriage” must be defined as “only a legal union between one man and one woman as a husband and wife, and the word ’spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.” (Consistent with Federal law)
If we are going to get Teenagers to practice abstinence, they must have adult role models....We need role models for abstinence. Hmm...Just who exactly is the General talking about as our models for "Chastity"?
"Convincing single adults to remain abstinent won't be an easy job. There aren't many positive role models for them to emulate. What we need is a chastity posterboy, and I think you're the man for the job. You're successful, a bachelor, and a tireless advocate for abstinence-only education. You're perfect. You'll be a fabulous posterboy.
We'll start out with a national tour, hitting local news shows and editorial boards, service clubs, chambers of commerce, senior centers, and college campuses. At each stop, you'll discuss how much you value your virginity and how rewarding your chastity has been to you."
