Hitting the links 12-20-2007

I do a bunch of (too much?)  cultural stuff on this here backwater of the blog-o-sphere.  Why stop now…

Here are two items that are related in how disturbing they are:

First, Mary Garber on Townhall.com points us to a website I will not link to… it is simply too ungodly.  The site is a government funded sex education podcast geared to teens and tweens:

But a series of videos for teens promoted through a teen pregnancy prevention program, G-CAPP (Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention), mocks the idea of abstinence.  The web page’s resources link (deleted by al)  encourages “youth” to “check out the Midwest Teen Sex Show—video podcasts about teen sexuality” that are intended to “provide sex information in a clear and entertaining way.”  The segment on “Abstinence” shows an actress playing the part of a girl beaten to the point of brain damage and slurring, “But I respect my body.” 

I did go online and check it out to see if what she said was true.  The  porno-like intro to the podcast is jarring when you consider the audience.  What will the next generation of children look like?  I’m skeered.  Read Mary’s article here.

Our second candidate for really disturbing link of the day comes with the UNICEF Photo of the Year for 2007…

From the story in the UK Metro

It shows Mohammed, 40, with his new 11-year-old wife, Ghulam. Taken by US photographer Stephanie Sinclair, it was named Unicef Photo of the Year yesterday.

I only hope the 11 year old had the opportunity to view the “entertaining” sex-ed video before here wedding night. 

The other thing I do a lot of is point you to Romans chapter 1.  Go read that again for a little perspective.
