Skip to comments.Out of wedlock Sex has a price...and it is one of the things destroying our youth and our nation.

Today during our church services we held a combined meeting of all of the adult men and women who were not involved teaching our primary aged (2-11) and youth aged (12-18) children. I wanted to report to FR about the meeting and the content and its impact. The meeting had been planned for some time to view the video"
A lot of thought and prayer went into presenting this video and its content. We wanted the adult thoughts on this before we hold a meeting for all of the youth in our congregation.
The video is very direct and very plain and straight talking about the sexual revolution and its physical, emotional and spiritual impact on the youth in America...and on adults who practice sex out of wedlock. It is extremely well done and is delivered very professionally and very aptly in the video to a catholic high school assembly meeting by a Pam Stenzel. She uses appropriate humor, straight talk, statistics, clear logic and scriptural reference to reveal the truth about the rampant spread of over 30 STD's in our society today, many of which I had never heard of before, and their impact. She speaks very eloquently about the terrible emotional and mental impact of the consequences of these diseases both to those who contract them...and to any future partners or spouses they may have.
The presentation would not be allowed in public schools because of its religious message...but the overall message is one that every American adult, parent and child from the sixt grade up should hear.
Our congregation is of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but we very willing listened for an hour to a presentation by this good, moral and very talented Catholic woman as she presented the truth ahout the virtue of sex within marriage, and the abject dangers and rampant disease and risk associated with it outside of marriage.
I urge every Freeper to get a copy of this video or cassette and view it yourself...then show it to your entire family...then do all in your power to hold church and community meetings to show it to everyone you can.
The speaker talks of the media's willing efforts to hide and obscure the facts and only present their politcally correct and motivated message that is doooming hundreds of thousands of people, even millions (mainly youth) to misery and eventual death by not presenting all of the facts.
I am completely unaffiliated with the people producing the video, but know it is available in cassette and DVD format as well. I inted to buy one for each of my grown daughters (two married and one single) and send it to them urging them to watch it ASAP and teach the information to their own children (in the case of the married daughters) as soon as they are of age.
I intend to buy many cassettes and vidos and DVD's and to work here in Emmett, ID to have every church in our valley of every denomination look to having similar presentations...ultimately having them all come together for a community presentation to reach as many people and youth as possible.
Needless to say, I was very impressed by this timely and critical message, and despite whatever doctrinal differences my church and denominations have between themselves...this truth is universal and something most all of us can agree on and present for the benefit of all.
Please, please, get a copy of this and watch or listen to it.
You will be motivated to spread it around.
Please, please get a copy of this and watch or listen to it.
I have no doubts that you will desire to get it widely published, viewed, listened to in your community...through your church, other churches, community meetings...however.
It was a matter of convenience, you know. Oh, I am sorry, in libspeak, "Health of the mother."
I miss that child, today.
Regrets can haunt you forever.
I know you will be inspired to get this message out. it is simply the best, most consice, most direct and most impactful presentation on the topic I have ever seen.
Please watch it and then spread the word through your own congregation.
Simplay a GREAT presentation that everyone should get a hold of, watch and then spread in their own sphere of influence.
Hope you are enjoying the novels.
And aside from the costs of having a child, which dooms the mother and the child to a life of financial struggle, we also have the sexually transmitted diseases. I believe the CDC has stated that 25% of all adults have a permanent STD - be it AIDS, warts, Herpes, etc. Think of the medical costs for treating these things. And that doesn't take into account the STDs that are treated - syphillis, gonorrhea, etc.
Then we also have the emotional consequences of having sex in a non-committed relationship, then breaking up. Hugely damaging, and baggage that is carried to the next relationship and to one's parenting.
Why it is "conservative" or "puritan" to say this is base stupidity.
