Arizona School District to Give Condoms on Prom Night
WorldNetDaily ^ | April 07, 2008 | By Bob Unruh

Posted on 04/08/2008 4:02:37 AM PDT by KentuckianaHeadhunter

A school board in Arizona has decided that condoms are among the items that should be given to students attending this year's prom.

The school board in the Bisbee District voted 4-1 at a recent meeting to include the condoms in a "prom bag" that will be given to prom-goers this year.

A spokeswoman in the office of Supt. Paul McDonald confirmed the condoms would be handed out to the event celebrants, along with other items such as picture frames, balloons and candy.

"The governing board approved [this]," she told WND. "They are to have what they call prom bags, which include picture frames and balloons and candy and other items. They requested from the health department if they could put a condom in the bag also."

when you're an animal, this is actually a pretty enlightened thing to do.

I had to edit my post three times, each time I toned it down by factors of billions. Finally I settled on the most charitable response I could think of.

The school board in the Bisbee District voted 4-1

Four people made this decision for all the parents in the district?

That's not a "board," that's a "School Sex Promotion Committee."

Obviously the public school system is a tool of the marxists who want to destroy the family and block any influence of parents on children’s values.

Hell, if they’re going to go that far to encourage sex, why don’t they buy them all hotel rooms, or put roll-in bed in the gym?

Geez, around here they’re just trying to convince them not to drink and drive on prom night.

How about holding the prom at a private club and serve them alcohol too? After all, they can practice safe drinking if it is all done in one location...

The logic just somehow doesn’t follow, does it?!

Attention, Liberal Parents. I speak to you today about one of the fastest growing problems facing our children, and how YOU can help.

Boys will be boys…you know what I mean. They are going to get into things we would rather they avoid, but you know boys. They can’t be expected to make good decisions and to avoid trouble. So I am sure you will agree, the best thing is to be responsible, and to make sure they are prepared. I know that if we all get behind this, we can develop a program to help make sure that when the teen years arrive, your kids are ready.

I speak of course, of firearms.

Boys naturally want to play with guns. I mean, how can you reasonably expect to warn them, to say “You aren’t ready for this, so just don’t!” As parents, we just don’t have that kind of power. So the next best thing is to make sure they are careful!

Beginning this week, Liberal parents, all your sons and daughters are going to be taught to handle high powered weapons in school, where they should be learning about it, rather than on the street corner. You won’t have to sign any annoying forms, because the State has decided this is a Good Thing, and we won’t be asking you for input because what you want isn’t important.

Just ask those 4 which of the girls at the Prom are their daughters.

They'll overturn it in a second.

You can always count on someone not to disappoint.

No matter what the topic, someone will come on defending immoral or illegal behavior.

Keep these school board members away from children! (You’d think the district’s liability insurer would stop this sort of thing, or cancel their policy.)

Au contraire! I was not “defending immoral or illegal behavior.”

It was rather obvious that I was lampooning overdone rhetoric.

At least I thought so.

I remember catching a talk show piece while waiting in the drs office about the time the flack came up about handing out birth control pills to jr high age girls through the school, without the parents permission.

Even the talk show hosts were opposed to it, and then they decided to have a show of hands in the audience of those who thought this was a good idea. One couple raised their hands. Then the talk show host asked if they had kids. The answer, predictably, was NO.

Interesting how those without a vested interest in the future of our country are so willing to destroy it.

Hey, after dealing with two posters on another thread who were adamantly defending the school’s right to strip search a 13 girl based on what amounts to nothing as far as evidence, you don’t take anything for granted any more.

One got banned, the other has disappeared but still has an active account.

The two in question would probably only oppose this if the condoms were bought with tax money, they would think it was a great idea if they were donated.

“...why don’t they buy them all hotel rooms, or put roll-in bed in the gym?”

This was my thought, too. They may as well put some air beds in the classrooms and allow prom-goers to use those condoms. They could assign teachers at every door and do a used condom check as the kids went back to the dance. They need to make sure the kids are using them properly.

If I were a parent in this district I would not allow my child to attend. I know that homeschooling is not an option for everyone but I have to say it’s articles like this that make me feel better about our decision to keep the kids at home.

Oh, this is so enlightened. Maybe they'll pass out sixpacks of beer or bottles of vodka, too. And helmets for the car drivers so they'll all be safe.

Er, "safer."

Then I wonder what the Police were doing with the three cases of condoms per month drawn from Medical Supply at my hospital and delivered to the Superintendent of the Security Police Squadron? They sure had them in their pockets at Guard Mount.

If they’re going to throw in condoms, why not some literature on STD’s? I hope the condoms also include the failure rate information. Maybe they could throw in some morning after pills for the girls.

Or maybe the parents need to talk to this school board and explain what they and will and won’t allow as prom “gifts”.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The parents should organize a **private** prom, and see that their kids boycott the government school orgy.

In its unending pursuit of stupidity and bad decisions, the district has shifted the focus from carnations and dancing to that of sex. It’s no longer Prom Night, it’s Sex Night.

What a bunch of (beeping) morons.

Encouraging them to remain sober enough to engage in sex is one way to keep them from getting fall down drunk.
