Scrounging up a 14 year old video of a girl promoting individual sexual purity is the first thing Maddow does when Odonnell wins.
You can just hear the venom dripping.
Christians can be phenomenally stupid at times, especially when it comes to ....... well, ANYTHING. Some of the public statements Christians make are really dumb. This is NOT one of those statements, though. It is a statement about an issue that is if anything, personal. However, CHRISTIANS DID NOT DRAG THIS PERSONAL ISSUE INTO THE PUBLIC ARENA. It was out there by..... OUR FEDERAL OFFICIALS. Kids saw the news every night, and leaders in the church felt they needed to respond.
Maddow is doing everything she can to intimate that O'Donnell is wack about sex. Rather, this seems to be simply a young woman attempting to stand up for what she believes is true and correct. This video was made when the not so distantly past news was of that LOON of a surgeon general Jocelyn Elders. Our chief medical officer, the Surgeon General, publicly instructed kids that a great way to avoid AIDS or sexual diseases was to masturbate, helpful soul that she was. This was during the presidency of the chief horn dog himself, who was servicing a young intern on her knees in the oval office. All the sexual maelstrom at the time WAS COMING FROM THE GOVERNMENT. Elders had resigned as Surgeon General a few short months back, and "getting a Lewinsky" was becoming street slang. In this context, a young woman says in essence "Sex is not primarily about selfishness and personal pleasure. It is designed by the Creator to be something to make two people closer together and to give EACH OTHER pleasure. In short, it is about love, and not lust."
This is fuel, then, for the sneering contempt of Rachel Maddow. It is amazing that those who claim not to believe the Bible consistently behave EXACTLY as the Bible describes they will.

DOVER, Del. — In the bright light of Wednesday morning, Christine O’Donnell, whose Republican primary victory upended the calculus for future control of the United State Senate, became quickly known to Americans as the woman who once made dire warnings about the negative impact of masturbation.
