"Don't Have Sex with Anyone in Lubbock"
22 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at my college. The directors, and Shelby were there for a Q & A session afterward. Shelby, now a junior at UT-Austin, truly has developed into a wonderful young woman and I admire her greatly. This is a very well made documentary. Unlike some other commentators, I do not believe that the filmmakers were attacking Christianity. This is an absurd comment to make, since Shelby was in fact a devout Christian. The film makers simply interviewed the pastor, to which he responded honestly. Shelby did ask tough questions, and he gave his own answers. If he looks stupid, it is his own fault, and not the filmmakers. The beliefs of this pastor cannot be generalized to Christianity. This film was, of course, shot for a purpose. There is a problem in Lubbock, TX. They have one of the highest STD rates and the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country. It is told from a view point which advocates comprehensive sex ed and LGTB rights in schools. However, it does represent the other side. This was the purpose of the many people who were interviewed who did not advocate this movement. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the film.
