02/13/2004: "Teen group promotes "Day of Purity""

The group described in this article have the right idea of how to evangelize. We do it by our actions and being proud of our good actions.

It cracks me up the groups that are critical. I think it is to their own detriment. The gay and lesbian groups are always trying to point out that their normal, good, moral people is a great example. In many ways, they're correct. I know many gay people who are very good people outside of their sinful sexual behavior. But we're all sinners, and although I condemn their sexual actions, I celebrate the rest of their lives. I would hope they would extend me the same courtesy and look beyond my sinfulness to see the good in my life.

But these same groups that are talking about how good and moral they are, are condemning a group that is advocating teen sexual abstinence. It really hurts their credibility and the societal view of gays. It re-enforces that they really don't care about morality. They'd be wiser to support the "Day of Purity"'s goals in every way. Add to that statement, that they don't see homosexuality outside of that laudible goal.
