Have They Been Taught?

I thought this post on "Sexual Misconduct in Dating -- and what it does to the mind of the woman" was rather interesting.  Here's an excerpt:
President Hinkley was once asked something like, “The unmarried of the church are unclear about what it means to stay morally clean.”  President Hinkley replied with something like, “Oh they know (the rules), they know.”

Unfortunately, I have repeatedly been told stories of behaviors that cause me to believe that either some of my brethren out there either don’t know the rules, or need to be reminded of them and the effects of not following them.
I, too, believe, for the most part, the unmarried know "the rules," but the tendency to justify breaking them must be huge.

It's sad. Their faith is obviously seriously lacking and being outweighed by other things. :(

Absolutely heartbreaking. That post that he linked to written by that poor sister whose husband was addicted to pornography-- so gut-wrenching. Makes me even more grateful for the stalwart men who hold the priesthood and their roles as husband & father with honor.
Love your blog, Emily! :)
