Rev. SMiley, Rev. Dr. West, and ALL concerned about poverty and social ills, our own U.S.
Census Bureau gives evidence that the #1 group trapped in poverty are single female-headed
households, people choosing to engage in uncommitted premarital sex, I PRAY that you will
address the underlying causes, I believe blacks are equal to whites and can that ALL youth
should be taught self-control, but it will take ALL of us to get back to the "protective" boundary of traditional marriage!
Our society has adopted liberal/progressive ideals from Hollywood regarding human sexuality, they are directly opposed to Biblical TRUTHS!
MANY progressive authors, some so-called "reverends", have distorted Judeo/Christian Biblical TRUTHS by asking us to condone 3 LIBERAL LIES with regard to human sexuality, the first is "free love", which is the acceptance of hetero/homosexual SINS of fornication, sodomy, oral sex, and pornography! We have MUCH data from our own CDC that these condoned sexual choices have NOT been free, but have harmed/killed millions with STD's, abortion..! The second is "choice", which is ALWAYS the terminating of a growing unborn human life-go to www.abortionno.org and view the IMMORAL choice! And lastly, the LIE of "protection with condoms", when we have data from the CDC that condoms CANNOT protect against many STD's because they are found in areas like the inner thighs-which are NOT covered by condoms,! ALL of these LIES are NOT compatible with Christ's teachings -He said "go and SIN no more"-not just use a condom while you engage in sexual sin, and if that fails, you can make the "choice' to kill your unborn child!
I have all of the detailed data- particularly the SAD statistics on how blacks are negatively affected because according to our own CDC-they engage in uncommitted non-marital sexual behaviors at much higher rates than their peers--THUS more devastating numbers. Although we have numbers for white and Hispanic youth, which are also very troubling, the sad numbers reflect that black youth are particularly negatively affected.
Blacks account for 12-13% of the U.S. population--yet they have higher numbers as a percentage of their race in all of the following social ills: POVERTY-The #1 group trapped in poverty are single female -headed households--NO marriage--sadly, blacks have a 70% out--of-wedlock birth rate. We spend $100 billion on poverty-related programs. STD's --Blacks have higher numbers of ALL STD's -not just HIV/AIDS! We spend $20 billion on screening/treatment. CRIME--We know that black youth engage in higher rates of criminal behavior and on more black victims--we also know that 70% of the men in prison came from homes with NO fathers--NO marriage! We spend $40,000/year per inmate for upkeep in prison? ABORTION--We know that since 1973-Roe v. Wade that 45 million unborn babies have been KILLED in legal abortion--BUT 1/3rd of those-15 million, were black.
We also have evidence of negative emotional effects of pre-marital sex like increased rates of depression and suicide, discussed in 2 new books, "Unprotected" by Dr. Miriam Grossman and "Hooked" by Dr. McIlhaney discuss the hormonal influence with sexual choices.
GOD bless us everyone! MRS. Laura Merriott 814 835-0249
