AFA and OneNewsNow contradicting itself?

On March 15, the radically anti-gay American Family Association-backed OneNewsNow.com reports that abstinence-only education is working (past post):

“The teen pregnancy rate has dropped by a third since abstinence education was started,” he points out, “and the teen abortion rate has been cut in half.”

Seven days later, it isn’t working as thought and more of it needs to be taught:

“We have said to a whole generation, almost two generations now, of young people, ‘Just be careful and use a condom,’ and that’s the only advice we are giving them,” she adds, “and I think that’s so unfair and it’s so misleading for our young people because we’re downplaying the consequences of casual sex.”

Consistency is certainly not a principle that this “news” site  and writer Charlie Butts values.

In a highly unscientific, online poll, 85 percent of web users of the anti-gay, conservative “news” website of the American Family Association said they expect Obama “to appoint at least one open homosexual to a Cabinet-level position.” 15 percent do not expect such a decision.

The results of a One New Now poll are really cool: We should take them up on their expectations. Openly gay Secretary of Something? Sounds cool to me.
