Princeton Rejects Abstinence Center-From CitizenLink.com
Members of Princeton University's abstinence club, The Anscombe Society, have asked for an Abstinence and Chastity Center for two years with no luck, yet the school has no problem supporting a center for gay and "transgender" students.
When asked why she could support a place for gay students, but not one for chaste students, President Shirley Tilghman said that the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Center does indeed support an abstinent lifestyle.
Matt Bennett, founder and president of The Christian Union, a leadership – development society for students, said Anscombe Society students have contacted the LGBT Center in the past.
"The students were asking that they bring in speakers to support students who are of a homosexual orientation who want to live an abstinent lifestyle," he said. "The LGBT club has explicitly told them they do not support that."
Instead, the LGBT Center sponsors sexually explicit workshops such as, "Beyond Monogamy," which teaches students how to pursue open relationships, and "Queer Sexualities."
