Students Spread the Message of Purity
Students across the nation and world are being encouraged to celebrate Valentine’s Day by committing themselves to sexual purity in honor of the fourth annual Day of Purity. The Feb. 14 event was launched by Liberty Counsel, a Florida-based nonprofit law firm that specializes in religious liberty issues. “We encourage students to choose sexual purity to drown out the persistent message of sexual promiscuity promoted through television, the Internet, movies, video games and even in some school sex-education programs,” said Rena Lindevaldsen, Day of Purity international coordinator. Events are being organized in schools, churches and communities at which youth will distribute flyers and wear Day of Purity T-shirts and LivePure wristbands. Organizers are encouraging the young participants to use the Day of Purity to raise awareness about the risks associated with premarital sex. “More than 3 million American teens are infected each year with sexually transmitted diseases, and the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate of developed countries,” Lindevaldsen said. As a precursor to the Day of Purity, Liberty Counsel founder Mathew Staver on Monday will discuss the significance of sexual purity during an event at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.
