One-Third of Americans Have an STD: Can the Sexual Revolution Be Declared a Failure Yet

Posted by Joseph on 11 November, 2013

new report says 110 million Americans now have an sexually transmitted infection (STI; also known as sexually transmitted disease, STD), more than one third of the nation’s population. There were nearly 20 million new infections in 2008 alone, and 50% of the new infections were to people aged 15-24. What does this signal about American culture?

The evidence is overwhelming,” says Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM). “The sexual revolution has been tried and shown to be an utter failure. The body count and the diseases continue to rise. Marriages and families are destroyed.”

“The only ones who do not see this are the ideologists who refuse to see the empirical evidence. They are as willfully blind as the most hard-line Stalinists ever were. And they keep asking for more and more of the same.”

    ~This is what can be expected when media coverage, soaps, risky lifestyles etc are communicated right into our homes via magazines, tv, etc. The love between a woman and a man is made cheap = they talk about love but really they are talking about lust. Maria

      Thank you Sister Maria.
      There is an old saying, ‘What the devil promises, he takes away’. The ‘happiness’and ‘freedom’ he promised was such a lie. The article mentions the physical consequences of going against the procreative and unitive act as ordained by God – but the psychological and spiritual consequences are far more damaging.
