“Does the purity culture movement do more harm than good?”
Such a great question. There is some great thoughts in this blog. Please take a few minutes to take a look. Love to hear your thoughts.
But the purity culture has extra-biblical rules attached to it: dating is wrong; one should always court; parents must chaperone; parents should set kids’ boundaries; kissing before marriage is wrong; clothing should be stringently monitored and modesty enforced; girls who aren’t pure are “chipped teacups” or “stained napkins” (those are analogies that are often used in rallies).
It’s a cultural movement far more than just a moral one, because one can certainly believe in purity but not hold to all of those trappings.
