Check out this documentary about a faith-based abstinence program that religious-right forces installed in New Mexico public schools. Watch for the part about the covert “purity” war room.

Susie Bright’s Journal:

“Abstinence Comes to Albuquerque” is the name of this fascinating documentary about a sex battle royale in New Mexico’s urban public schools. Wait ’til you hear about the covert “purity” war room!

(I have to insert a note here that I was once an absolute FIEND in Albuquerque myself).

The feature is about how the religious right, under the cover of “education,” got millions to install one of their wacky abstinence programs into New Mexico high schools, with no one making a peep until one parent blew a whistle.

When I say wacky, I mean, it’s not only unscientific, Biblically-bizarre, and physically unsound? it’s also inflammatory paranoia that would make any rational person’s head spin.
