    Eighty percent of young evangelicals have engaged in premarital sex, according to a new video from the National Association of Evangelicals. and almost a third of evangelicals' unplanned pregnancies end in abortion.


    Wow

    It's time to rethink how Christians are expected to navigate today's world.

    Judeo-Evangelicals have seriously failed. But, the solution isn't promoting safe-sex among the unmarried. Jesus is already going to tell most of them that he never knew them. The solution is to stop being Judeo-Evangelicals and start being Christians.

    No its not...

    This whole BS notion that 'evangelicals' (WTF is an evangelical anyway?) want to take away ANYONE'S contraception is a lie.

    As for abortion... that is murder, not contraception.

    I am raising my daughters to be responsible with their bodies... its NOT okay with me that they would choose to engage in premarital sex. Its a bad idea, and can have life changing reprecusions.
    But if they were to do so... I would still love them and do everything I could to assist them in raising that baby.

    Besides... who says the left has a monopoly on great ideas? Why is it that we as 'evangelicals' or christians always have to concede to the lefts wishes?

    Leave me and my sex life alone damn it... and stop telling me I am stupid for teaching my kids to be responsible for the vaginas!

    BD, this not entirely directed at you... I am just responding with my heart thats all.

    I want what is best for my girls... its the same as telling them its best to have never taken that 1st drink of alcohol. Ya just never know how you will react.. all alcoholics and addicts start with the 1st drink or snort. Abstinence works if its done for the right reasons.

    Now I am need a drink :D

    It wasn't okay with my parents, either.

    Her name is Tiara. She'll be 31 on Saturday.

    My point is - it was against my religion, and the will of my parents - and I did it anyway.

    Now, wouldn't it be nice if I'd been on the pill.
