ah the legendary Republican-endorsed "Silver Ring Thing"... I'm pretty convinced from my preliminary reading a few months ago that it's just another consumerism-driven pseudo-christian fad... another True Love Waits card really.

What interests me most is the thought behind this. That an object is going to save you.

When push comes to shove, if you're in a situation where sex is imminant, a necklace/ring/card in your wallet is not going to stop you!

I'd far rather see them investing time and effort into appropriately discipling and educating our young people (in an honest way!) about what we believe and why. I fear that all these quirky things are just expensive fads and won't really stop anyone doing anything!
