married to jesus, divorced quickly

Terrific personal testimonial about abstinence pledge.

“This was a movement with T-shirts and hats and the added bonus of superiority over kids in school who couldn’t keep their clothes on, those sinners.”

Of course.  One of the features of being a xian.  Self righteous superiority. But that is just a good, incidental quote.  The essay goes way beyond that. 

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

I have a friend whose sister waited for marriage. She got married, she loved the guy but the guy just wanted to have sex with her, and after he did (and knocked her up in the process), he divorced her.

I think that's how many Christian divorces happen with the young these days: marrying just to have sex--i could be wrong.
