Peter Griffin: I'll be more convincing than Mel Gibson when he apologized to the Jews.

Mel Gibson: I'm really, really sorry about your big noses. I'm really sorry about how greedy you are. But most of all I'm really sorry about you dirty, underhanded, backstabbing ways. Your number one dirty Jew fan, Mel Gibson.

The One With The Abstinence...
26 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode. It's funny and it actually touches on important issues.

In this episode, Lois becomes the sex-ed teacher at Meg and Chris's high school. But she is fired because she is giving important, proper information about sex, that the kids should have. Like about birth control. But the school and parents think she's too radical to teach their kids. How rude? Do the parents want to have their kids get pregnant because they didn't know how to use a condom? Come on, people. It's the twenty-first century, sex is a part of life. Anyway, I'm getting off topic. So to replace her the school gets a Christian group to come in and by using fear, misinformation and straight-out lies, they convince the kids to go with the path of abstinence. Even Meg follows their lead. Later in the episode, after Meg gets a boyfriend, Lois finds them having sex, in the ear. Yes, you read right. In the ear. What kind of world are we coming to?

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
