American Taliban

From Jesse Taylor at Pandagon, How To Date In One Easy Step:
The "Christian" Way: don't. Rather than address this point by point, which would lead to head-exploding of a detrimental nature to this blog's visitor count, I'll just pick out the five worst ideas for the survival of human sanity.
Consider how our system works. A young man notices a young girl who attracts him. He asks her out on a date, and she agrees. If neither one likes the other, then they both have had a bad experience. If they initially "hit it off" and continue the relationship, then the eventual temptation to engage in sex is strong, especially if they happen to be teenagers, still under the roof of their parents.
This all comes complete with the excuse to start making honor killings of female family members a Christian thing. Really. (via)
