Thank you, Condom Access Project! It’s always been so uncomfortable and awkward for us parents. It’s so wonderful that you can be there to step in and fill the gap for us.
So there you have it, parents! You no longer have to face the drudgery of teaching your kids about sex! You don’t need to instill values! Why bother passing on God’s view of sex to your kids? Why, when it’s so much easier to just let the already-broke government ship your teenager a box of assorted condoms with a little K-Y®?!?
You know what? I honestly do understand the logic behind this idea. I get it. Kids will be kids. I get that kids are going to have sex. (In fact, statistically, a lot of them are going to.) And I get that if they’re going to have sex anyway, it seems to make perfect sense that we’d want to protect them from unwanted pregnancies and STDs. We could even make the argument that we’re teaching them how to enjoy “consequence-free” sex.
Maybe we could simply revisit that very most primitive and outdated of irrelevant sex prevention programs—you know, that one where moms and dads actually have “the sex talk” with their own kids? You’ve heard of this one. It’s that same program where dads step through the awkwardness and just go ahead and lead their sons in purity by example. There’s also another component where parents teach their daughters about purity, dignity, self-respect, honor, integrity, and just plain, old-fashioned class. It’s where moms and dads actually assume the role of “Mom” and “Dad,” taking the time to talk plainly with their kids, addressing tough subjects like boundaries, love, commitment, foreplay, sex, orgasm, and where all of these things fit into the much bigger picture of how we live out our faith in a way that doesn’t just show us how to honor each other…but it also brings glory to God.
But I’m kind of old school that way.
