Superbug


We think we can get away with messing around but the consequences just get worse.

There was a time when gonorrhea was a big deal. We fixed that with antibiotics. Well now, the chickens have come home to roost. We are failing in our attempts to control it. Antibiotics that worked before don’t now and fewer and fewer will in the future.

As I read this story I thought of kids in the public schools. Here in Colorado the legislature is working to effectively give the teaching of sex-ed to Planned Parenthood. They call it science based. That’s the same code word used to keep the monopoly on teaching about evolution. Anything that threatens the precious doctrine is branded “religious” therefore not scientific therefore not taught. They want to do the same with sex. Abstinence education can be branded religious and done away with.

Students are given the promise of safe sex. “Do whatever you want and the condom will protect you.” The reality is that we are having an explosion of sexually transmitted diseases and condoms are not fixing the problem.

Proverbs 12:10b gives an interesting principal: “the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.” We have legislators who think they are doing something good but the effect will be cruel. There will be lasting damage done to young people because of their actions.

It’s interesting that we tell young people to just say no to drugs but some claim that the same young people can’t say no to sex. Then they are given false assurances. Abortion and destroyed lives are the consequence.

May God have mercy.
