The reality of a world with no morality is that...

one in every four teen girls today has a STD.

Liberals want to live in a world with no rules, especially rules about sexuality, however they forgot about natural consequences. Morality, the rules of civilized behavior in society, is not to hurt us or condemn us, it actually helps keep us healthy and happy. I feel so sorry for the tens of thousands of poor girls who now have to live with the shame of having a disease with no cure and the possibility of leading to cancer. The blame should lie with the "free love" radicals of the 1960's, the "just do it if it feels good" left who don't reason, but just let their feelings dictate their actions.

We don't have to just give up our children to this culture of sexual saturation that leads to misery and death, be proactive in shielding the innocents from mass media and teach them the benefits of practicing the virtues of modesty, piety, obedience, love of neighbor, and humility. We have let the "experts" have their way with teaching children about sex for far too long, the results are a disaster. Let us return to parents teaching their children about the facts of life in a context of family and morality and return to a world without a constant epidemic of preventable diseases.

A virus that causes cervical cancer is by far the most common sexually transmitted infection in teen girls aged 14 to 19, while the highest overall prevalence is among black girls — nearly half the blacks studied had at least one STD.

While some teens define sex as only intercourse, other types of intimate behavior including oral sex can spread some infections.

The study by CDC researcher Dr. Sara Forhan is an analysis of nationally representative data on 838 girls who participated in a 2003-04 government health survey. Teens were tested for four infections: human papillomavirus, or HPV, which can cause cervical cancer and affected 18 percent of girls studied; chlamydia, which affected 4 percent; trichomoniasis, 2.5 percent; and herpes simplex virus, 2 percent.

Blythe said some doctors also are reluctant to discuss STDs with teen patients or offer screening because of confidentiality concerns, knowing parents would have to be told of the results.

The American Academy of Pediatrics supports confidential teen screening, she said.

I just would not be too quick to blame it on the people of the 1960's. The present millenial Catholics are twice as bad on for example abortion than the 60's Catholics are. And abortion is related to sexual behaviour. They..the 1960's people... will bear their particular responsibility for the chain of sin but will not bear the whole chain exclusive of every single generation after them simply because they started it. National Catholic Reporter (no..not my favorite..but this involves a poll) in 2005 had a polling of Catholics that showed that the young millenial Catholics have the highest rate of permissiveness toward abortion of any of the Catholic generations despite their being against the death penalty more than the past generations....89% of them say one can be a good Catholic while supporting abortion. Previous generations were at least down in the 40's % range. That means that Mick Jagger et al from the 60's do not explain something very bizarre within young Catholic youth..here's the link:

Here is the condensation in an excerpt:

" The percentage of Catholics saying that one can be a good Catholic without agreeing with the church on abortion has risen from only 39 percent in 1987 (the year of our first survey) to 58 percent in 2005. There also are striking generational differences among our 2005 respondents. Only 44 percent of pre-Vatican II Catholics say you can be a good Catholic without agreeing with the church’s opposition to abortion. That figure rises to 56 percent among Vatican II Catholics, 59 percent among post-Vatican II Catholics, and 89 percent among Millennials. Clearly, Catholics do not feel as bound by the church’s pro-life stance on abortion as they once did."

Before the baby-boomers arrived on the scene there were almost no sexually transmitted diseases and fewer out of wedlock pregnancies. Since the (late 1960's) breakdown of the family and the loosening of moral constraints (think free-love)there has been a explosion in both those things.
The Catholic Church has always taught us to love one another, to respect other people. To love someone else means to not kill them, not take advantage of them, not give them disease, not USE them. This leads to happiness for all. If some folks have not been taught what the Church believes (by baby-boomers catechists?) and instead have just followed the world culture, is it any wonder they believe the same as the rest of the world?
