Replace "small group of moralists" with "middling bunch of fanatics". They
are working overtime at the legislature to kill funding for the condom
programs, family planning, and anything else to which they object. I doubt
the SCA could stand up to being the object of their "affections(?)".
And we haven't touched on the idiots that want to make the flack real
(there is big hole down on 5th Street from one of those).
Personally, I would love to see condoms readily available and sex education
in the schools, but do I have the right to force my world view on people
who are adamantly opposed to it? Until I can talk them into seeing the
world my way, I'll opt for individual responsibility and action. And,
although I don't need them any more, I think I'll pick up a dozen for the
next condom jar I come across.
