When I was a kid in the days before comic books became “woke” DC used to put out a book called Weird War Tales which consisted of short horror/sci-fi stories in a war/battle setting. There was one story that jumped to mind after reading Stacy McCain’s latest post on Ella Dawson.

A GI stationed in England training to be part of the D-Day invasion is absolutely terrified at the prospect dying during the landings. The Devil appears to him and says that he can protect him from death but only on one day. The GI sells his soul screaming “D-Day, don’t let me die on D-Day!” The Devil agrees and departs.

In the landing craft he finds himself supremely confident and when a German MG is pinning down his squad, he, to the shock of everyone else who remembered his fears, rushes forward and takes it out but is riddled to pieces.

As he lay dying the Devil appears and he accuses him of reneging on the deal. The Devil replies that this is not D-Day and as he does the GI overhears two officers standing next discussing a posthumous decoration for him noting that thanks to him, this probing raid in preparation for D-Day was a success.

You see for 30 years condoms have been pointed to as a life saver and pushed as such but as Stacy points out in his article:

Let’s quote her inspirational prose:

“I received the message loud and clear that girls who were sexual, girls who wanted sex, girls who were aggressive and talkative and confident, were those girls. . . .
“I did the bitter calculus of being a teenage girl and decided to embrace my destined and disdained sluttiness. I even made up a superhero identity for myself: Whorella.”

It was not just random coincidence, you see, that she was diagnosed with genital herpes during her junior year at Wesleyan. The law of large numbers and her own ignorance (condoms don’t prevent herpes or HPV) made it more or less inevitable that “Whorella” would catch something.

Stacy is right on the money when concerning the law of large numbers and disease. The more people you have sex with the larger the odds that you will catch something and if you are in a college in a large pool of mostly drunk people hooking up the odds of avoiding VD aren’t good.

There is a more important point than the foolishness of the young and stupid.  It’s even more important than carrying over said stupidity beyond one’s college years, it’s a point that I never tire of making and it has to do with Christianity.

One the the results of the west’s abandonment of the laws of God is the loss of the benefits of said laws, benefits that were meant for the good of those who follow them not for the benefit of God.    (Or do you think that all those rules given by God to the Jewish people about washing hands and vessels millennia before we knew that it was the easiest way to prevent disease was a coincidence?) 

God’s rules on sex are very simple.  No sex before marriage and once married no sex outside of marriage, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, open marriages, etc they’re all out.  Now if you’re a fan of sex in general, and lets face if most of us are, or if you’re a fan of  fornication, adultery, homosexuality open marriages etc etc etc in particular you might not like those rules and it’s quite understandable that many rebel against them.

However it doesn’t change the fact that if you follow those rules and your spouse does as well the odds of you catching any venereal disease are as close to zero as you can get and it goes without saying that abstinence from sex outside of marriage for married people is far more effective in preventing AIDS & HIV than the best condom money can or any potential treatment or “cure” that we have spend Billions of dollars trying to find.

Stacy & I both come from a generation that still understood that God’s laws were a shield to protect us, not a yoke to oppress.  Ms Dawson comes from a generation that doesn’t.  That’s why it’s imperative for us to go on the record now so that these basic facts, supported by centuries of experience can survive us.

Oh and pray for Ms. Dawson and folks like her and don’t get too caught up about her mistakes when you do.  Remember the wisdom of Christ in Luke 6:37-38

Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.

Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”

PRIMARY SITE UPDATE: You’ll note that there are still a few posts going up on the main site with links videos etc. That’s because before my problems came up I was on a bit of a writing roll and saved pieces with links and video are still working.

The estimate and timetable for moving the site is still not in from my 1st choice but if you want to help defray the costs (I’m guessing $700-1000 but I don’t know for sure) I would highly appreciate it.
