In the last month saw the creation of a “marriage” between two people of the same sex, a Olympic medalist announce to the world that he is now a she, and revelations that Bristol Palin is expecting again and that contestants on the Bachelorette show have intimate relations not just before marriage, but also before they are “supposed to” in terms of what’s planned on the show.
So you know what’s really bothering people now? That a celebrity couple would dare stay abstinent until marriage:
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is getting candid about his relationship with Ciara.
In a sit-down with Pastor Miles McPherson of The Rock Church in San Diego, Wilson opened up about his life, his beliefs, and taking sex with his girlfriend off the table.
"I met this girl named Ciara, who is the most beautiful woman in the world," he gushed. "She’s the most kind person, the most engaging person."
The couple began dating in April and shortly after, Wilson said he received a message from God regarding his new love.
"She was on tour, she was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror," he said. "God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her’ and I was like ‘Really? Right now?’ He goes, ‘No, I want you and need you to lead her.’"
Wilson said he asked Ciara, "What would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus’ way?" (And yes, the 26-year-old clarified that he was definitely "talking about sex.") – Ciara and Russell Wilson practicing abstinence @ FoxNews
So we really have gotten to the point where people are startled at the idea that people can be abstinent and lauding the fact that people can be what past generations would call immoral.
