    It's not often at all that I'll congratulate the Salvation Army, but well done to them.

    This type of crap is just brainwashing and indoctrination of the worst kind. I genuinely pity anyone involved and the fact they are so naive and gullible.

    One day we'll finally be able to move beyond the fallacy of religion and all the harm it does - just not in our lifetimes.

    The day we move beyond religion is the day we move beyond reality shows, since those seem to have a similar effect...

    I thought purity balls meant something else.

    "who are committed to young, fruitful marriage and to help them overcome the barriers which have kept their children unmarried.”

    I would think the crack pot religion is what kept normal dudes away from their daughters.

    I have seen questionnaires that the boys have to fill out before daddy will let them ask daddy to court the daughter. Some of the more famous fundies have real trouble selling I mean marring their daughters as no one is good enough. Couples can't be by themselves they can't kiss side hugs and constant chaperone.
