    Everyone misunderstands this picture...

    What we are actually looking at is proof that the "Max Hall Bear Spray Massacre" was an inside job.

    I've never met anyone who is anti-abstinence.

    "Abstinence-only" however is demonstrably disastrous and head-in-the-sand moronic. See Bristol Palin.

    Sex ed should be a comprehensive review of how damaging teen pregnancy is in every aspect of life, abstinence "strategies", the efficacies, advantages/disadvantages and HOW TO USE various contraceptives.

    Bottom line, if you are really anti-abortion, you should ardently support making sex ed comprehensive and contraception available. People need to decide what they hate more, their kids learning about sex and contraception or unwanted pregnancies and abortion.

    In the end everything at BYU comes down to, "we're better people."

    Take this post on why BYU hasn't been invited to a P5 conference.

    Here are some bits.

    How many teams would literally do ANYTHING (use your imagination), to have a seat at the big boys table. At an absolute minimum they would want to sit down and have drinks with them...

    So the implication is that other teams do shady dealings to get into a big conference. (use your imagination!!) Then there's that horrible sin of having drinks which they don't understand is not a measurement of how high your standards are anywhere else in the world anymore than cutting your toenails in the shower is.

    Then, not only does BYU stick to their principles...

    Ah, I get it, BYU is principled where no one else is.

    We are "difficult" because we keep our standards, in a day and age when it seems that no one else does.

    There it is! He beat around the bush and threw out some insinuations but in the end couldn't resist saying it outright. Nobody else but BYU lives by standards. What arrogant jiggery pokery. (As Scalia might say)

    Not to start a whole 'nother thing, but to me this is simply common sense.

    We know prohibitions that push against human nature simply increase the harm while not solving the problem. If we simply acknowlegde that percentage of the population is going to make certain choices regardless of risk and focus on mitigating the risk/harm as a matter of public health, its not surprising to me that the results are much better. If only the feds would be so enlightened as to allow a state to try something like this as an alternative to the drug war with its militarization of the police force and massive incarcerations of the most vulnerable members of our society. But instead we are going to let the rest of the world leap frog us here too.

    I have never understood the reluctance to accept this little fact.

    If the goal is to reduce abortions then stopping them before hand seems like the best way.

    West did have more than 32 grams of weed in his bedroom when he was arrested for the alleged rape of the foot fetish hooker.

    by TheBaron

    The only people that hold 32+ grams of marijuana at once are small time dealers or all day, every day users. It's pure speculation, but it's not a stretch to guess that the money dispute that led to the shooting involves drugs. Coppell, TX is a very nice upper middle class area that doesn't remotely resemble any ghetto, but even in the ghetto there is generally a good explanation for when people get chased and gunned down. In most cases, that explanation involves one or more of money disputes, a drug deal gone wrong, drug territory disputes, and/or gang membership. I would be completely and totally shocked if the money dispute between West and the shooter was over something legitimate like the sale of PS4 games or other legally acquired property.

    I have never seen anyone ask to remove abstinence. Adding in birth control topics does not require removing abstinence as a topic.

    Nobody on the left wants to remove abstinence from the discussion. Since it is already there they are only fighting to add the missing topics.

    The left is arguing for complete knowledge. Removing abstinence would be absurd.

    Ed Rooney: I don't trust this kid any further than I can throw him.

    Grace: Well, with your bad knee Ed, you shouldn't throw anybody... It's true.

    Ed Rooney: What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas.
    Grace: Mmm-hmm.

    Ed Rooney: Last thing I need at this point in my career is fifteen hundred Ferris Bueller disciples running around these halls. He jeopardizes my ability to effectively govern this student body.
    Grace: Well, makes you look like an ass is what he does, Ed.
    Ed Rooney: Thank you, Grace. I think you're wrong.

    Grace: Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.

    Ed Rooney: That is why I have got to catch him this time- To show these kids the example he sets is a first class ticket to nowhere!

    Grace: Oh, Ed, you sounded like Dirty Harry just then.
    Ed Rooney: Really?
    Grace: Uh-huh
    Ed Rooney: Thanks, Grace.

    Yes, but the church has been counseling against using the "before hand"

    by DownhereUte

    This wouldn't even be a problem if young men and young women would just listen to the 80 year old men and keep themselves worthy. Why is that so hard to understand?

    And you say that I see the world in black and white, sheesh.

    Every sex-ed class I can recall taking taught that abstinence is the only foolproof way to prevent pregnancy and the spread of STD's. My kids just went through sex-ed, and they were taught the same thing. We were raised in different states, and different times yet learned the same $#!+.

    On a related note I am a fan of teaching the dangers of unprotected sex through fear. Show kids how miserable the life of an unwed teenage mother is. Show them pictures of herpes, and genital warts. Worked for me and my friends. We didn't necessarily abstain, but safety was a top priority.
