I am so ashamed of Oklahoma. Wasn't able to find one location that was participating unless you know more. Such a disgrace - and a part of the bible-belt. I don't even have children but wanted to show my support. Some Christian communities are so "encapsulated", self-contained you wouldn't even know they were there. As long as their world doesn't get rocked nothing else matters. They turn my stomach. Like "sheep being lead to the slaughter". And then we wonder what happened.

Teachers do not show up for school. Students do not show up for school. Rest assured dove hunters will show for the first day of season. Different folks different priorities.

Dude, you are "ashamed" of Oklahoma because nobody is participating an an ultra right wing religious social protest.

And our friend BAWAC is always griping about how everybody in this state is a religious ultra right winger who would jump at the chance to attend something like this.

You two need to get together and hash this thing out.

We need to change our state slogan. Call it OKLAHOMA "the can't win for losin' state".

What's so wrong and immoral about sex education, including birth control? Does such education force kids into wondering how good sex feels like, so they go sneak off and try it out on their own? But considering how there are more unwed pregnant teens in Oklahoma than in most states, kids sure don't need sex education or birth control to get inspired to try out indulging in full blown sex. Do kids ever get taught by Christians that the Bible quite clearly says not to have sex before marriage? When the schools aren't failing kids on how to handle sex, then it's the church people.

I really do like OK, just disappointed with people's concern. If you go to the sight you'll see this wasn't even started in OK - but another "bible-belt". There are a lot of "bible-belts". People in Texas swear they live in the BB. The people in Georgia think they do. Same for the people in The South as a whole, and all of The Midwest. The peeve is that in some states' kids are being taught at ultra-young ages. Kids can't/don't make sense of such things, nor do they need to at their age. These are not just high school presentations. If people with kids are against such things allow that. Different priorities as one said. Why is it "religious" just because parents don't want their children exposed. Grant it, it's a Christian's heart that is hopefully setting the tone for one's life, and the life of the one's they love till they're out on their own. The church has done a terrible job at times setting a good example. Terrible. I've been at the front of the line on that one myself - going between what I know to be true and wanting to do my own thing. But I wouldn't trade any of the struggle for what used to be. Never. I believe people (more than most anything) want to be at peace with themselves, feel a measure of peace in their own skin. Hands-down what's on many people's wish list. I now have some when I never did before, and predict I will only get more if I continue forward. God has taken me kicking and screaming since day one, and at the same time He's the best thing I've got going for me. I wouldn't change a thing. Praise God.

Oklahoma is an abstinence-only state so I don't see why something like this would even be necessary here. Children and teens don't get the same sex education in Oklahoma that they do in a lot of other states. Count your blessings OP.

Oklahoma schools certainly need to have abstinence plus programs. My married girl cousin had to get an abortion because they were so poor they couldn't afford a baby then. If birth control was taught in school, maybe that wouldn't have had to happen. But for all I know the Christian Right feels sexual intercourse in always wrong and immoral to engage in, unless the intention is to have a baby.

Say NO to sex education in schools! Support unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease! They are God's rightful punishment for having sex (even if you didn't enjoy it, even if you didn't voluntarily participate in having sex). How DARE our public schools try to interfere with what God told ME to tell you!

Hopefully, the above is sarcasm.
