by anon-4fbe More and more youths are accepting Jesus as their lord and savior and rejecting Satans lies that you should have sex before you are married.

By Dan Anderson anon - If that were the case the lowest pregnancy rates would be in places like Mississippi, Alabama, etc, when in reality, that is where some of the highest pregnancy rates are found.

By the way, who ever heard anyone say that anyone should have sex before you are married? (Maybe you should look up the etymology for the term "satan", given that there is no literal character.)

By Simone Chiodini Morality is subjective. I consider myself to be a morally centered person. I have sex with my fiancée and we are not married yet. It's called experimenting. I think sex before marriage leads to a healthy married life. I don't think teenagers should have sex at all, and I am definitely against teen marriage. But that is just my opinion.

By Dan Anderson Simone - I agree with you. Teens have absolutely no idea about life, let alone how to discuss marriage and even being aware of the difficulties in relationships. When one is mature enough to understand the issues and have an actual commitment to each other, then I, too, see nothing wrong with it.
