I just found another purity documentary. For a review, click here, and for the documentary’s website, click here. For the trailer, see below:

About Libby Anne

Libby Anne grew up in a large evangelical homeschool family highly involved in the Christian Right. College turned her world upside down, and she is today an atheist, a feminist, and a progressive. She blogs about leaving religion, her experience with the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, the detrimental effects of the "purity culture," the contradictions of conservative politics, and the importance of feminism.

    While watching the trailer for “Daddy, I Do”, I spotted another “Purity” video on YouTube:
    I could barely stand to watch the whole thing. The kids in it are so obviously brainwashed – their every thought and word thoroughly coached and monitored. One girl believed that a prohibition of premarital sex is one of the Ten Commandments, but, when questioned about which commandment it was, could not answer. You could hear one of her older sisters trying to coach her offscreen. Another girl was interviewed with her father sitting just behind her, hovering over her, putting words into her mouth, and watching her every expression and move like a hawk. She had a kind of glassy-eyed, distant stare that, to me, indicated fear. It was very disturbing, to say the least.
