I'm proud of him for that. He shows an ability to hold his temptations better than anyone I've ever known.

Of course someone like you would probably be proud of their child having sex at 13.... "Good boy, mini-IPSEC!"

<quoted text>Compare two schools of equal demographics in two different states, one that allows for condom distribution and sex education and one that "teaches abstinence". Adjust for abortion using the same demographics for those individual areas. The school that teaches proper sex education and distributes condoms will have a teen pregnancy rate a tenth of that in the "abstinence" school.
Texas "teaches abstinence". Texas had the highest rate of teen pregnancy and the highest rate of children having two babies in their teens, in the nation.
We share a goal of children not having babies. Why do you go against conventional wisdom and common sense and actively trumpet to thwart that goal?
You're wrong, it's not Texas.

And why are you stuck on teaching abstinence?

You disagree with a parent having unconditional love for their child.
I'm not surprised.
That is correct.

Love is conditional.

I don't believe that unconditional love exists.

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.
Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.
When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.
They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.
They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.
Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.
Therefore I remain dubious until evidence surfaces to the contrary.
My Dear father was an Atheist. Hard core Atheist nearly all of his adult life. He was always trying to convert me to Atheism. When he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer he remained an Atheist.
Until he had a life changing event six months before he died. I won’t go into the details other than he left Atheism and had the proof he needed.

It’s like treasure hunting in a way. If you never go treasure hunting you will never find treasure. Some professional treasure hunters go years without a find but they keep searching. Until that one day they find a sunken 18th century ship laden with gold & silver.

Most Atheist want someone to bring them proof. If you never go on the hunt you never reap the bounty,

You can't have any doubts as a Christian. Verboten

Satan and his gang may not find God compelling but certainly found he was capable of propelling their hind end into the abyss.

Since there is no violation of the Constitution, the conversation has switched over to violation of school policy, specifically disruptive conduct in class.
You misunderstood. Constitutional law as interpreted by the Supreme Court forbids school officials from promoting religion or leading prayers, but it also protects the rights of students to practice their faiths during school hours as long as it doesn't interfere with school activities or impinge on the rights of other students. Disruptive behavior is governed by school policy, the religious rights of the students by constitutional law. Which one applies depends on the situation.

The conversation, then, involves both constitutional law and school policy. There's no "switch," only a view that encompasses both and applies each where appropriate.

These atheists have abundant proof, like everyone else. They like to mock and repeat slogans from their indoctrination. They are demon possessed FOOLS with their fate sealed

One of my daughters just gave birth to my first grandchild. I offered only this advice: "You will receive unsolicited advice from almost everyone about almost every aspect of infant care and child rearing. Be polite, but trust your own instincts. You are so much smarter and wiser than I was when I became a parent. You'll do just fine."

And she will.

Well no actually, the US Constitution does not prohibit teachers or school officials from promoting religion, it only prohibits Congress from establishing a national religion.

There are school policies about disruption in class, and I could honestly see how a prayer could be seen as a disruption. But I could also see how texting or shuffling cards or farting could be disruptive. None of those following the guidelines of the US Constitution.
