The Church recently released a video on YouTube regarding the relatively new Young Women value of virtue.
What you may notice in the video is that young women in the Church are equating virtue with sexual purity.
While chastity is technically a definition of virtue, I think the Church does a disservice to its youth by perpetuating this definition.
Other?Ç¬†definitions?Ç¬†of virtue are more encompassing:?Ç¬†moral excellence and righteousness; goodness;?Ç¬†quality or state of being morally sound.
So why is it that when we have the opportunity to raise youth with integrity, we focus on?Ç¬†chastity?
And this isn’t an old problem. The long-standing?Ç¬†practice?Ç¬†of equating immorality with sexual impurity is just as bad.
Can we stop with the fascination with sex and go back to being generally good people? Please?
