My Abstinence Lite program will pay you 1000 bucks if you don't have sex until your fourth date if you're under 30. And then we could pay you on a sliding scale for you to keep your hands off of each other after that. I know it's kinda silly, but is it any sillier than The Silver Ring Thing?: "Pro-life organizations are receiving millions of federal dollars in the name of “abstinence education.”

As Jane correctly asserts:

These people are nuts, and it would be nice if the press stopped coddling them and pretending they were either reasonable or rational.
