It was reported that HIV cases are up sharply in Minnesota and teen pregnancies are rising nationally for the first time in 10 years. What will be the response of sex education elites? I'm sure there will be a call for more condoms and placing blame on the abstinence message.
These responses are merely a continuation of the failed sexuality messages coming out of the 60s sexual revolution. The ideology driving that revolution keeps chugging along as does the fallout, e.g. abortion, disease, out of wedlock births and in some instances death. That's because the ideology is based on the notion that sex is recreational sport. And the goal of public policy responses is merely to mitigate the negative consequences rather than truly eliminate them.
Abstinence until marriage, if universally practiced, would basically eliminate the disease, death and out of wedlock birth problems. Yet pro-condom advocates dismiss common sense in an effort to justify their ideological commitment to the sexual revolution.
Going the "more condoms" route merely encourages the underlying, unhealthy behaviors which are the source of the problem. (And this doesn't even address the emotional, "spiritual" damage resulting from premarital sex.)
What's lost in this debate is the true purpose of sex. The natural law and Christian understanding of sex is it's designed for procreation and bonding a man and a woman in a lifelong marital relationship. Certainly sex is pleasurable but that's not the ultimate goal of sex. It's a byproduct of it's proper use. In fact studies show people who are in marital relationship have the most enjoyable sex lives. Maybe that has something to do with love and commitment which goes beyond just the act of having sex. I think so.
