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!
