Just this morning I was reading an article about pre-teens "coming out" in middle school, going to "gay" dances and beginning same-sex relationships when most kids their age are still trying to figure out how to say hello to the girl sitting at the next desk. As I read, one thing kept running through my mind: Society has done this to these kids. Through TV shows and movies and novels and in-school programs about "tolerance," today's kids are being force fed an agenda that teaches them that premarital sex, including homosexual sex, is the norm. And if they're not taking part in it, something is wrong with them.
Turn on the TV and it's likely that if you see a character who shuns the pro-sex message, a boy or girl who chooses chastity over hooking up, he or she will be cast as the unthinking moron, or, more likely, the hypocrite. I'm thinking now of the new show Glee. It's about a high school singing group where one particularly nasty member is president of the chastity club, pregnant, and lying about who the father is. In this show, as in so many others, the kids -- or adults -- who wear the crosses and talk about their faith are the opposite of what they seem. In other words, it's Hollywood as usual.
Well, some teens aren't taking that message sitting down. Project Chaste is a new campaign that tells the Hollywood crowd to open their eyes to the many teens and young adults who aren't buying the free love propaganda. Check out the video and help spread the word:
