Conservative comedian and commentator Steven Crowder and his new wife saved sex for marriage. They lived out their Christian beliefs, and ignored the jeers and taunts of those around them. In a culture full of pressure -- believe me, I know firsthand -- they showed commitment and courage. Now that's how you do it right.
Here's how you don't do it right: by slinging the taunts and the jeers right back. That's where Crowder, unfortunately, blows it.
He writes, "Turns out that people couldn’t have been more wrong. Looking back, I think that the women saying those things felt like the floozies they ultimately were, and the men, with their fickle manhood tied to their pathetic sexual conquests, felt threatened."
Nope. Uh-uh. That is not how you preach the message of purity, by belittling and name-calling. Don't believe me? Go check your Bible for where Jesus calls sexually sinful women "floozies." Go on, I'll wait.
Couldn't find it? Me neither. Maybe that's because Jesus "came not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
Steven Crowder has a lot of fans -- most of the time I like him myself -- and many of them aren't going to care for this post very much. So be it. I'm all for doing it right . . . but in the right way.
