Purity Ring - Christian Brainwashing?It's a ring, made of a silver, gold or some other metal. It is supposed to signify virginity celibacy until marriage. They have been around since the 1990's, being invented by United States Christian sexual abstinence groups (leave it to us to come up with this crap). What amazes me is that people actually believe all this Christian brainwashing crap. Suckers!

This story isn't about whether religion or Christianity is bullshit or not, although I will say all religion is a Joke and just a waste of everyone's time. It was invented by people to put fear into them, and keep them serving thier wishes. I don't care whether it's Christian, Muslim, Islamic, Jewish, or some other religion…… it's all a big joke at your expense!!! I will save the religious debate for another time however.

Back to this purity ring nonsense…. A 16 year old London girl, Lydia Playfoot has asked the U.K. High Court to enforce her rights to wear a purity ring in school. The incident started when her school in West-Sussex imposed a ban on purity rings. Apparently the school already had a ban on wearing of any jewelery, whether religious or not. This Christian lemming, Lydia Playfoot, wants to make this into a religious discrimination case. Stop wasting everyones previous time and money and get a life already! She's 16, she should be having fun and doing teenager stuff instead of worrying about her chastity! It's not sacred, it's not special…. it's natural. We EVOLVED (oh, no…yes it's true; EVOLUTION really DID happen) with penises and vagina's for a reason. Do you see rabbits or chickens or cats or dogs waiting to have sex till they get married?

The school banned jewelery, religious or not and I hope the U.K. court can see that it's not a discrimination thing at all. She should be liable for the expenses the government has had to endure on her behalf!

    An example of inconsistent thinking.

    The writer argues that teens are sexually active (and ought to be) because we evolved that way. He goes on to point out that rabbits and chickens don’t wait to get married to have sex.
    If the writer is going to give evolution of sexual activities the credit for why people are the way they are, then he also needs to realize that evolution would be responsible for such things as purity rings.

    Simply put, if premarital sex came by evolution, then so did purity rings; therefore, quit whining.

    Hey guys, isn’t it funny that an atheist can explain how life here on earth evolved, but they can’t explain how life actually got here? And they call themselves “rational thinkers”! I, on the other hand, will continue my faith as a Christian. However, I will not allow any of my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ impose any of their unrealistic ideals on me, call it biblical, then turn around and condemn me just because I disagree with some of their views. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    There was a whole heck of a lot more beliefs before Christianity showed up. People just seem to have to believe in stories that can in no way be proven or disproven, it helps them deal with death. If a strong belief helps somebody then that’s fine they can believe in it, but for somebody to say how DARE you criticise a religious belief it is rather hypocritical. Are they not doing the same to non religous people’s belief system? I myself am a man of science, of logic and fact. I have a much better time believing in evolution as I have seen it happen in experiments myself than I do in an omnipitent being who is all knowing. I like to be in control of my own life, not worry about being judged all the time. Life is short, as long as you are a good person and try to have fun, make a living, that’s all that matters.

    I will agree that religion is an idea formed through the evolution of the Human brain, as human’s like to be able to explain everything. When they can’t the brain comes up with a less plausible idea to believe in. The human mind is the most powerful machine in existence, we all have the potential to be Gods. Abilities such as telekenisis, telepathy and others are locked within our minds, one of the next stages of Human evolution might unlock those, if we don’t destroy the planet first.

    I can’t believe people are trying to say christianity isn’t a religion, yes it is. When we are born we know nothing, if somebody says there’s an invisble man in the sky little kids aren’t the wiser. Everybody who claims to feel the love of jesus is full of shit, your part of a manipulated cult that dates back 2000 years. You actually think the works is 6000 years old despite piles and piles of evidenced that proves otherwise. If a person wants to where a bullshit ring let them who gives a fuck, all you proud christians reading this are proabably in denial about it, so here’s a test go ask your pastor if Jesus ever got a blowjob. As far as sex goes it should be between two people who are both ready.

    It is their opinion to wear a purity ring I’m Christian and I don’t have one! Relating it to cats and dogs doesn’t help because THEIR ANIMALS!!! Also you can’t tell people it doesn’t work stop doing that because that is their freedom of religion rights and if you don’t know what that is it’s in the first amendment saying you can’t tell people how to practice their religions!

    To wear a purity ring is to discriminate all who arnt virgins, and it is as to say: I am worth more than you, I am pure.

    It is unbelivably ignorant and MEAN.

    And that missionaries teach abstinence only

    the fact that people wear purity rings around you has absolutelty nothing to do with making you feel bad or upset. They are not wearing them to upset you or for attention. they are wearing them to show the commitment they made in their heart on the outside. They are wearing it for their future spouse. It has absolutely nothing to do with you. This is a pretty selfish and incorrect statement. Christians do not wear purity rings to be “mean”.

    atheism is not a religion, it’s a denial of deities. Also, most “christians” have not even read the bible, the Atheist are the ones who have read it, thought rationally, and said “this is bullshit, the earth is not 5,000 years old, that’s been proven”. But the christians look and say “All the works of modern science could not possibly equal the work of cattle-sacrificing primitives who believe every animal on earth lived within walking distance of noah’s house.”

    You need the Lord. I’m praying for you. Honestly, what’s so bad about religion? I, personally, am Christian, but I’m going to speak for all religions. Think about this, you “rational thinker”. Only approximately 2.3% of the ENTIRE WORLD’S population is atheist. So, for all you “rational thinkers” out there, doesn’t that say something? That makes you irrational. Why would people rather believe what 2.3% of the population believes? Do you really think that makes you smarter? Well, it doesn’t. The big bang theory is complete nonsense. Where did the darkness even come from? and the atom? No one knows. So before you start dissing religion for not having all of the answers, you should check yourself and see if YOU have all the answers. And there IS scientific proof of Christianity.

    And why do you find it necessary to make a website about this? Do you think you’re going to change the beliefs of about 98% of the world’s population? Well think again “rational thinker”. It’s not happening. And I don’t understand what gives you atheists the drive to do good in the world. Since you believe that you’re supposedly going to die and turn into dust anyways. Honestly, if I didn’t have anything to live for, I’d just kill myself. But I believe that God wants me to put others before myself, and I’ll be rewarded in heaven. I think you’re all just scared to admit that there is a superior being to yourself. You’re afraid to think that there’s someone who can end the would as quickly as He created it. You’re afraid to admit that you need a change in your life. And finally, you’re afraid to life the Christian lifestyle. I’m not trying to shove religion down your throat, but stop shoving your atheism down mine. You can have your beliefs, but STOP criticizing others’. Oh, and here’s your scientific proof:

    http://www.clarifyingchristianity.com/b_proof.shtml

    >”Why would people rather believe what…see if YOU have all the answers.”

    I don’t have the answers, i don’t know. And neither do you. You claim to know what happens after you die, but you don’t, no one does. You do not posses extra sensory perceptions that others do not, that enable you to know the truth. What you have is a belief, that is all.

    >And there IS scientific proof of Christianity.

    No. Just damn it no. I read your “proof”, and just no. It claims dinosaurs were mentioned it the bible. But how could they? All non-avian dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago. They were not around 2500 years ago when the Old Testament was written. The rest of it is simply spotty research, filled in with Old Testament quotes.

    >And I don’t understand what gives you atheists the drive to do good in the world…Honestly, if I didn’t have anything to live for, I’d just kill myself.

    Would you? Would you really? Because i certainly wouldn’t, without a higher power i am perfectly happy. I believe in this world, i believe in this life. I believe in people, and doing some good in this world without any higher reason. So if the only reason you believe in God is to save your ass just in case you’re right, that’s a horrible reason the put faith into something. Fear does not equal redemption.

    Please, just take time to consider and think about the world before you spout blind faith all over the place. Don’t assume all atheist are like the hate spewing, Christian hating teenagers who are rebelling against everyone. They are a cancer who has fueled a religious war over the internet.

    But i don’t know, you don’t know, belief is the only thing we have in this world pertaining to life after death. But that is no reason not to be a decent person in this life, and try to minimize the self destructive, corrupt state that all humans face in life.

    wow it amazes me how you think everyone is wrong but you. It must be pretty lonely to think your better than the rest of the world. There is nothing wrong with waiting for marrige. It’s smart not only from a religious standpoint but also from a medical one. If you save yourself for marrige you will probably not get an STD, if you got pregnant you would be married, maybe not ready for a child, but the childd would have a better life. Maybe you should think about how ignorant you sound before you put this stuff on the internet, for the whole world to read. You obviously have absolutely no idea what you are talking about since you thought Muslim and Islam were different. I am a proud Christian and I am proud to say I am waiting for marriage. If you want people to respect your opinions at lest try to make it sound like you did some reserch before you say whatever you want.

    Seriously, how old are you? I just got this vibe from your terrible sentence structure, grammar, and outright blatant misuse of logic, that you must be under 15.

    But why, why would you choose to wait for marriage, without knowing what the future will hold for you. You take the pretentious standpoint of the ignorance and close minded views that comes with one of these purity rings. Sure it’s fine to save yourself until marriage, but if you find someone you care about enough to have sex with, why would you deny yourself that experience? Love does not have to equal marriage. But love should equal sharing wonderful things such as sex with your partner. It’s natural, it lets you express how you feel, and it’s an amazing experience.

    Yet you choose to live in a shroud of ignorance, and why, i’ll never understand.

    actuallly I’m 16 and as long as I am getting my point across i really don’t care how bad my sentence structure is. And what’s your logic if mine is so flawed? I choose to wait because i want it to mean something. If you have sex with everyone you think you “love” then there is nothing left to give to the person you choose to spend the rest of your life with. Also it is safer if you only have sex with one person you are less likely to get an STD or give one to them. I’m not denying myself anything i am simply waiting for marriage to make my experience better. and i am not close minded. I do not hate people that have premarital sex, i just do not agree with them. I am not ignorant. I am making a very wise decision, I am sorry that you do not understand that.

    and by the way do not judge me on my age. I have been through more crap in my life than most people ever go through.

I’m sorry that people treat you that way it isn’t right. It is not what the Bible teaches us either. Christians are not supposed to hate anyone, ever. Unfortunatly a lot of us do not think this way. they hate homosexuals, people who have abortions and people who engage in premarital sex or smoke or drink etc. A lot of my closest friends have done these things and i love them, I just do not agree with their choices, i tell them what i believe but i do not force it on them.

    i really don’t think waiting till you are married is a bad thing. it shows you respect your partner and are willing to do the same. But bashing on religions is a whole different territory. Yes people believe you don’t need a religion, but for others, it’s all they have. The world is full of religion, and so many different kinds. Maybe it was created for brain washing, but we’ll never know. It’s a persons choice to be religious or to be non-religious. and for some people, it’s changed them into better people. So whats the fuss on others opinions?

    The world if full of opinions, and everyone is entitled to their own. This makes us all interesting and the SAME in a way. Judge what you will, but don’t hurt people in doing so. I am a christian, and i love a god, but he’s my god, and no one elses. Yes it sounds weird and i’m entitled to that.

    The person who wrote this blog is just saying what he believes in. I would do the same. He’s right to say what he wants, so leave him alone if you want to be left alone. i agree with the school thing, if it’s not allowed, wear it on your own time, your a kid, don’t worry about what you might do in the future.

    It looks like your trying to employ some brainwashing techniques yourself: “yes, it’s true; EVOLUTION really DID happen”. And why is it that you compare humans to animals?: “Do you see rabbits or chickens or cats or dogs waiting to have sex till they get married?”. Humans are much more intelligent (according to the observation of communication skills, abstract thought, civilization, pursuit of knowledge, aesthetics, et cetera) and hopefully more sophisticated with a sense of morality.

    I think purity rings are a load of crap. I respect a person’s right to wait until they are married to have sex, but why should they document it with a ring? Is it really so wrong to have sex before you’re married if it’s with the right person?

    All purity rings do, is make teenagers feel guilty if they decide they don’t want to wait anymore. It sets them up for failure.

    My point is, if a person wants to wait until they’re married, then that’s their decision, just don’t try and glorify it with a ring!

    While we are writing about Purity Rings – Just More Christian Brainwashing? | IdiotBrain.com, If there is 1 kind of jewelry that’s known to become most important inside a wedding day, there ought to be nothing else to mention but a wedding ring. You’ve the option to wear other kind of jewelry, it’s not restricted. Nevertheless, that ought to come from a nicely believe choice. You should be careful when deciding for that type of ring to wear on the wedding. Place into thoughts that the wedding call is powerful enough to showpiece your hand. Never allow your other rings t outshine the significance of the wedding call. Select simple and elegant jewelry.

Some teens wear it and it means nothing.I do respect my best friend because she wants one and she’s waiting til marriage but me, I’m not and she doesn’t really like but it’s her problem she has to learn to respect me viwes about sex before marriage.Saying animals have sex isn’t really a good analogy about sex ya know.

    @bethany…Religion is as the author put it, a man made dogma meant to enslave other people into beleiving something that is not real.

    Moving on, sex is a natural human expeirence and the church has deemed is bad, especially out of wedlock. If you are over 18 and practice safe sex, there is nothing wrong with expereincing sex. Its what humans do. Purity is a man made thing to enslave you into thinking the way some ,ythical old man in the sky want you to do. If you really beleive in god, you have to ask, why would god be interested in your sex life? Since there is no god its a rhetorical question.

    You should really join the 21st century bethany and leave this religious dogma behind. BTW, there is no satan either.

    @saganhill What i really don’t understand is why it’s so offensive to atheists that Christians believe in God. Yes I know there are extremists who give Christians a horrible name and for that I am sorry. I dislike them just as much as you do. But most Christians are about love and compassion and treating others as Jesus did. Why is it a problem for you if they believe in someone you think isn’t real? It certainly isn’t hurting you.

    I don’t hate atheists. I disagree with them but i never attack there beliefs or call them ignorant or stupid. I think everyone no matter what their religious affiliation or lack of one, all need to respect other people. no matter how much we disagree.

    I proudly wear a purity ring. Do i think it makes me holy? no. I wear it because it reminds me that my husband is more important to me than some college romance that may or may not last. I want my first time to mean more than that. Plus i don’t think I can emotionally handle giving myself to someone and then them break up with me. Not all marriages last, but there’s less risk there.

    that being said I don’t judge people that have sex outside of wedlock and God doesn’t hate people who do either (Have you heard of forgiveness?). I just think waiting is better and God intended for sex to be very special and having it outside of marriage just takes away from that.

    Fighting to wear her purity ring. She should be able to wear it, as teen girls are allow to wear a Metallica shirt to school, I bet this girl doesn’t like rock music as people don’t like her purity ring. Does her purity ring hurt anybody, NO.
    Grow up schools, if this girl wants to wear a purity ring then so be it, its not hurting anyone. My God, its the schools fault its there wrong doing not hurts, she should be able to wear that ring. I wish more girls was like her, cause this World honestly makes me sick.

    Ok, first of all, i agree with you about the whole “God” thing and other peoples beliefs. But I don’t think the religion had the sole purpose of bringing fear, religion was created to explain what couldn’t be explained…
    Second of all, I don’t agree with you saying that a purity ring is a christian thing. Yes, it was created by Christians but I think that it’s a symbol that anyone can use in there own way.
    Third of all, I also don’t agree with you saying that evolution produced penises and vaginas cause we have always had female and male sex organs. (btw I’m gonna bring a little science and tecnicality into this) Also, humans are the only organisms in the world who have a part of the brain sectioned off for reason (thats why wemre so over populated). So, if you think about it, of course cats and dogs don’t remain celibut until there married because they don’t even have the knoledge or reason too.
