Apparently I'm antiquated. I was watching Oprah today - a rare thing for me, but they were discussing teens and s-e-x. They said that 1 in 5 teens will have sex by the time they are 15. I don't know about your 15 year olds, but MY 15 year olds aren't even allowed to date. This means they're not having sex. That really goes for their friends, too. The conversation centered around two 14 year old teens, freshmen in high school, who "love" each other and want to take that next step "because we've done everything but intercourse." Much of the conversation dealt with preparing them for sex. Oprah's friend, Gayle, piped in, saying that they are TOO YOUNG and that they shouldn't even be entertaining the idea. AMEN, Gayle! Oprah immediately called her thinking antiquated. Sigh. It is so disturbing to me that someone with so much influence will not use Biblical teachings as a basis.
I think I'll go pray for America's teens. Again.
