Social Conservative Superfluous Soap Box of the Night

The social conservatives on the Metro Council say so many interesting things in the course of a typical council meeting that they could be cited every other Wednesday for their comments the night before.

Last night's superfluous soap box citation goes to Eric Crafton who on a housekeeping resolution--the sole purpose of which was to bring a contract that Metro has had since 2004 with STD Free, Inc. (for educational services) into compliance with new state laws on lobbying and conflicts of interest--asked this question:
So, do they teach that abstinence is the one 100% way you won't get a sexually transmitted disease?
What was he going to do if the co-sponsor said, "no"? Encourage other members to lawlessness by voting against bringing a Metro contract into compliance with state law?
