Liberty Counsel mourns loss of freedom to be abstinent before marriage

See also

Continuing the Religious Right's tradition of clumsily disguising their desire to oppress as a fight for freedom, Liberty Counsel is preparing for Valentine's Day by promoting their annual "Day of Purity" by claiming that supporters of abstinence before marriage are being bullied into silence and at risk of losing their rights.

In a handout promoting the Day of Purity event, abstinence is referred to as the "politically incorrect" thing to do, with the event described as an opportunity for those "who strive for sexual purity an opportunity to stand together in opposition to a culture of moral decline."

Defending your rights and the rights of others to express their beliefs and act in accordance with those rights. There are those in today’s culture that are trying to silence those who believe that sex should be saved until marriage between a husband and a wife. They say they want tolerance and diversity, but what they really want is to silence anyone who believes in traditional values and traditional family. You have the right to speak and be heard. Be mature and speak out for what you know is right and true.

To date, however, it is not considered a criminal act anywhere on the entire planet to practice or encourage abstinence.

Liberty Councel further undermines its "freedom" narrative with a "True Friend" guide warning against maintaining friendships with people who do "not share the same value system."

Just as putting lipstick on a pig does not make it any less of a pig, writing "freedom" on Liberty Counsel's agenda will not make it stink any less of wannabe totalitarianism.
