Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

The fucking “faithful”

with 7 comments

A new Pediatrics study1 has found that “virginity pledgers and similar non-pledgers don’t differ in the rates of vaginal, oral or anal sex or any other sexual behaviour. Strikingly, pledgers are less likely than similar non-pledgers to use condoms and also less likely to use any form of birth control.” (News24)

The researchers found that 82 percent of those who had taken the oath denied five years later having done so.

Corrente reports that President George W. Bush’s administration more than doubled the budget for abstinence-only education programs since 1999 to $204 million for the current fiscal year2.

“The results suggest that the virginity pledge does not change sexual behavior,” wrote author Janet Rosenbaum, a postdoctoral fellow in the department of population, family and reproductive health at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

“… so why fund the delusions of Christianist propagandists?”

The whine goes like this: Just-say-no-’cause-the-baaibil-tells-you-so!

Yeah. Right.

Hey Christians! You fuck things up with your idiotic convictions. Fuck off!

2. Bloomberg quotes co-chairman of Obama’s advisory committee for women’s health Susan F. Wood that president-elect Obama does plan to reverse a policy that linked assistance for combating AIDS in poor parts of the world to requirements that health workers emphasize monogamy and abstinence from sex over condom use.

  1. Con-tester, the Romans and later the RCC where the persecutes of Jesus and his followers and are not relevant to whom I refer to.

  2. True Christians™® (℗ & © 325 A.D.*) are for safe sex? Really? That would explain the RCC’s rejection of all contraceptives except for the Rhythm Method. And the success of missionaries in combatting the spread of HIV/AIDS. And the higher incidence of teenage pregnancy in the US compared to the EU.

  3. True Christians are not against sex and are rather for safe sex, in other words, “common sense and kindness”. There is only one pledge, being, to “love your neighbor as yourself and God above all”.

  4. All this f-ing GUILT stuff that is foisted on kids by people who YOU BET don’t practice what they preach!! (how many Jimmy Bakker-type scandals have there been, f’godssake where preachers are caught with their pants down – not to mention the catholics’ serial paedophilia!).
    But it’s GUILT GUILT GUILT all the way. So why the hell did this creationist god of yours cause our dicks to swell when we rub against against someone, f-godssake?
    Sex is fine and normal and natural, and – like everyting else – needs only comon sense and kindness, not lies and threats.

  5. Ja AS, ek het die artikel van Christina Landman gisteraand gelees en ek wou daaroor skryf, maar wát kan ‘n mens nou daaroor sê? Prof Landman het al vréémde dinge geskryf, maar dié een…

    Sy sê, onder andere: “Die meeste respondente gaan egter na ’n spesifieke kerk toe omdat hulle daar genees is van allerhande siektes soos griep, maagpyn, pitsere, blaasinfeksies, oog- siektes en borskwale.”

    “Genees is“?

    Uh-uh. Ek dink hier is skroewe los!

  6. Ag jaaaaaa… en dan gaan hulle nog boonop kerk toe en bid om van die STDs en HIV genees te word. Dis nou nadat hulle woes gestoot het sonder hulle kondome: http://www.news24.com/Beeld/Opinie/Rubrieke/0,,3-2085-66_2448500,00.html Hierdie geloof-ding raak al hoe meer bisar by die dag.
