Mississippi Lt. Gov. tells girls to be good abstinent Christians



Some of you might have seen when this information cam out a few months ago. This was the state funded youth rally that preached abstinence-only, and Christian overtones. (The same rally with the cheerleaders chanting "Stop! Don’t touch me there! This is my no-no square!") Well now the Lt. Gov of Mississippi is complaining about the ACLU's lawsuit.

Lt. Governor Phil Bryant:

"I was so disappointed that the ACLU has decided that we don’t need to tell young women in the state of Mississippi about our faith; we don’t need to explain to them that abstinence, we believe, is related to our faithful Christianity beliefs."


We all know abstinence-only education doesn't work, but this might explain a little as to why Mississippi has the highest teen birth rate in the nation.

Found via TFN, more there.
