Posted on 03/09/2010 3:15:07 PM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
Today, Reuters has released an article on the mind blowing stats of the number of individuals that are infected with and possess the incurable disease of herpes in the United States.
"WASHINGTON, March 9 (Reuters) - About 16 percent of Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, U.S. health officials said on Tuesday.
Black women had the highest rate of infection at 48 percent and women were nearly twice likely as men to be infected, according to an analysis by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
About 21 percent of women were infected with genital herpes, compared to only 11.5 percent of men, while 39 percent of blacks were infected compared to about 12 percent for whites, the CDC said. "(to read the rest of the Reuters article)

As long as America is headed in a downward moral/spiritual spiral any attempts at political reform will be in vain.
So many times I hear misguided libertarians talk as if none of the social stuff matters but it does. How has more liberal social ideas helped us? They have resulted in several generations now of out of wedlock babies who have grown up to be more likely to be imprisoned and dependant on society. We have more broken familes. More sexual disease. And these costs have resonated exponentially throughout society. The cost to society of sexual liberalism if honestly calculated most likely dwarfs most others bugbears which our government sees fit to fight.
Exactly social liberalism always leads to fiscal liberalism.
They go hand in hand.
We should do all we can but they are just good intentions. Our nation must REPENT as Nineveh did and turn to almighty god before it’s too late!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
I’ll guess the herpes is what happened to Nazi Pelosey’s face.
It has destroyed us and yet the nation in general is oblivious too the reality of this...
Actually I’ve seen estimates that up to 96% of the US population is infected with the HSV1 herpes virus.
The consequences are negligible.
I have a hard time believing these figures. In the year 2000, children under the age of 15 made up 21% of the total population. That is about one in five people is under the age of 16.
I recognize that kids are sexually active as young as 12 to 13 years old but NOT all of them.
There are a number of adults who do not have herpes (including me). These figures are alarmist but I question their validity.
I am so thankful to be in a loving marriage!
Then you look at AIDS, millions of babies aborted, men who can't even afford to support the children they fathered out of wedlock, and you see that everyone has been hurt by this. Calling it sexual "freedom" has to be one of the biggest lies ever told.
But then again, lying is what Satan does best.
Me too! That is God’s way!!
God bless you and your spouse!!!
the mill Generation is 3 times bigger then gen xers.. All one has to do is to look at are sex crazed culture and it isn’t at all hard to believe.
