    Abstinence-only education programs run by the government are probably not very effective because they can't tell students the main reason for abstinence; engaging in sex outside of marriage is a violation of God's command. Rather than trying to get the government to promote abstinence, Christians should make sure their own children understand the importance of abstinence and should be active in preaching the gospel to those outside of their families.

      Abstinence-only education can't work well when a child is immersed in an anti-abstinence culture. What's couple of hours of an abstinence class vs. the whole world. And, most churches are no good, either, in the cause. They're too eager to "love the sinner". If you're feeling unloved in your church, the easiest way to feel loved in most churches is to get a divorce or for an unwed woman is to get pregnant.

      Western Christians seem utterly incapable of creating moral entertainment to displace Hollywood's filth.

      Most western Christians hold very non-Christian ideas in how to live, even while nominally agreeing to Christian values. They simply don't believe in abstinence outside of marriage. Where does removing the tax marriage penalty for parents rate among the GOP candidates? It's not even on their radar. But, Ted Cruz wants to carpet bomb the middle east.
