Kim Davis’ Lawyers: Celebrate Valentine’s Day By Not Having Sex
Mat Staver’s Liberty Counsel, a Christian-based law firm that represented Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in her failed effort to deny same-sex marriage licenses, is calling on students to celebrate Valentine’s Day by not having sex.
In a press release, the Liberty Counsel also tried to link the #MeToo movement (against sexual harassment and abuse) to consensual sex:
The 15th annual Day of Purity is a project led by Liberty Counsel on Valentine’s Day to promote purity and respect. It encourages and celebrates young people who choose to save sexual intimacy for marriage.
Students are encouraged to wear white on February 14th to help promote abstinence and inspire young people to look past casual sex to lifetime intimacy.
The Day of Purity is based on First Timothy 4:12: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity” (NIV)…
While Hollywood may encourage sexuality activity outside marriage, the #MeToo movement is just one of the devastating consequences of a selfish and overly sexualized culture. In contrast, studies show far-reaching benefits for saving sexual intimacy for marriage.
