The 100 father-daughter guests — some dads brought more than one daughter, and some of the daughters were as young as 4 — came from around Colorado, and a few from as far away as Pennsylvania. The highlight of the evening was when the dads signed the Covenant of Purity and Protection, witnessed by their daughters.
It’s not that I have an issue with a pledge made by an adult woman. But nobody else has the right to make that decision on behalf of another person. A parent can vow to protect their child from abuse or assault. How can a parent assume that a child will want to keep the parent’s world when she becomes an adult? Make no mistake. This whole thing isn’t about protecting children – it’s about protecting conventional morality. This entire thing is SO disturbing on so many levels. Mark Morford has an article on this.
