And in more news from the American religious right, girls as young as nine years old are being made to vow chastity until marriage to their fathers in so-called ‘purity balls’. These loons are spending big on this crap too. They get the stretched limousines. They get the wedding-like cake. Then, to top it all off is an exchange of vows. The girls, who probably don’t even know what sex is, promise never to have any of it until they’re married. The fathers on the other hand vow to protect their daughters’ chastity and live an unblemished life. How sweet.
