“Guarding your heart” the Purity movement

I wanted to share a link to a really good article on the subject. I agree with basically the entire opinion of this writer. The Purity movement is yet another set of beliefs that may seem like a great idea, but can be detrimental. It is doing a disservice to scare young people away from forming relationships, showing love and friendship to others, and creating healthy boundaries within many types of relationships. The answer is never to lock your kids away, shelter them like infants, or use scare tactics on vulnerable young minds. This creates young adults that have no clue what to do when it is allowed to “give a piece of your heart away”. Further, it creates young adults that don’t have a the tools to build a healthy, lasting marriage. I know I am not the only person who feels that the purity movement has done damage on my current relationships.
