Bristol Palin Says Sexual Abstinence For Teens Is "Not Realistic" On Fox News

In a stunning new interview with Fox News that will undoubtedly harm Sarah Palin's political standing with social conservatives, Bristol Palin said that she believes that abstinence is "not realistic".

When pressed for a reason why it is not realistic, Bristol Palin seemed to infer that it was because sexual activity among teens is now "more accepted".

Perhaps that is a twist on the more familiar "everyone else is doing it" excuse.

It was really a rather bizarre interview. Check out the video of Bristol Palin's stunning comments on Fox News.....



So is teen sexual abstinence really unrealistic?

Do we live in a world where our teens have no choice but to run around having sex with their classmates, getting pregnant and passing around sexually transmitted diseases in the process?

The truth is that when God tells us to do something, it is for our own good. When we violate God's laws there are consequences.

God tells us to stay pure until marriage for many reasons, and one of them is that staying pure protects our health.

STDs are exploding across our nation. Now, one out of every four TEENAGE girls has at least one STD.

That is unthinkable!

And for those teen girls who acknowledged having sex, the rate of infection is 40%.

Dr. Margaret Blythe, an adolescent medicine specialist at Indiana University School of Medicine and head of the American Academy of Pediatrics' committee on adolescence says that these figures are "overwhelming because you're talking about nearly half of the sexually experienced teens at any one time having evidence of an STD."

A nation full of sexual immorality is a nation full of sexual disease.

And did you know that a new study by the Health Department of New York City has found that 26 percent of all residents of New York City have herpes?

Now keep in mind.....that is only one sexually transmitted disease.

Chlamydia, gonorrhea, infectious syphilis, AIDS and many other disgusting sexual diseases are also running rampant in New York City and across the United States.

How in the world did America get to this point?

America violated the Word of God.

America broke God's Laws.

If everyone waited until marriage and kept sex inside of marriage, then these diseases would not be running rampant in the United States. But America thought it knew better, and America did things that way that it wanted, and now America is paying the price.

In a new federal survey, more than 50 percent of both male and female 15 to 19 year old teenagers admit to having engaged in oral sex.

Think about that for a while.

That is absolutely stunning.

More teenagers have practiced oral sex than have not.

These are young kids who have not even reached their 20th birthday yet.

Can the wickedness that is plaguing this nation get much worse?

What are we teaching our kids that they would act this way?

Have we completely failed them?

Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, the survey of American teen girls that Tyra Banks conducted totally stunned us.

More than 10,000 teenage girls and young women took part in an anonymous survey last summer on the website of "The Tyra Banks Show", and the results were absolutely shocking:

*On average, girls are losing their virginity at 15 years of age.

*14 percent of teens who are having sex say they’re doing it at school.

*52 percent of the respondents say they do not use protection when having sex.

*One in three says she fears having a sexually transmitted disease.

*24 percent of respondents with STDs say they still have unprotected sex.

*One in five girls says she wants to be a teen mom.

*One out of three respondents admits to having tried drugs.

One 16 year old girl that was interviewed on Tyra's show says that she had sex for the first time at 13 years of age. Since then, she says that she has had 9 sex partners and has contracted several sexually transmitted diseases, including genital herpes.

Is this any way for our teens to live?

Why do we insist on not teaching them to avoid these behaviors?

The truth is that our society has rejected God and His ways, so this is what we get.

We teach our children that they came from animals and that they can have sex whenever they want. We just suggest that they use a little "protection" (which actually is not much protection at all).

We have failed our teens.

The results speak for themselves.

The reality is that we are living in the last days, and our society is full of proud, wicked people who love to sin just like the Scriptures tell us:

2 Timothy 3:1-5

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

"The truth is that when God tells us to do something, it is for our own good."

Really?

Leviticus 20:9
For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

20:10
And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

20:13
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Leviticus 20:14
And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

lets not beat around the bush here, YOU believe ALL people who are Gay, who have committed adultery , and who curse their father should be MURDERED.

"God tells us to stay pure until marriage for many reasons, and one of them is that staying pure protects our health."

I can not find any verse in the bible that explicitly advocates abstinence before marriage on the basis of Health. if you can, please show me, it could be there, but i haven't found it.


"How in the world did America get to this point?

America violated the Word of God."

Man you a really hateful person, what with the wanting to murder all the gays, cursers, and cheaters (Think of all the billions of people you want us to kill!)
------
and YES by YOUR logic YOU think we should

-Violating word of god is bad
-Word of god is kill all the gays, cheaters and cursers
-Therefore we should kill them.
Lest we violate his word.

"Is this any way for our teens to live?...We teach our children that they came from animals and that they can have sex whenever they want. We just suggest that they use a little "protection" (which actually is not much protection at all)."
Perhaps we agree here. No i don't think it is. i don't think 13 should be having sex. however what you fail to realize is that its people like you, trumpeting abstinence that are ironically causing the moral decay of these teens you seem to be so concerned with. if all these teens had been exposed to safe sex education and NOT abstinence education, the STD transferal rate would be MUCH MUCH lower. abstinence education does not work and it never will. it is a waste of money and more importantly, a waste of time.

"We have failed our teens"
no WE have not. YOU have. and people like you. who refuse to take their head out of the ground.


"Abstinence-only education doesn't stop kids from having sex, it just stops them from learning how to avoid pregnancy. Abstinence-only is emphasized in Texas, a fact that explains the teen pregnancy rate -- one of the highest in the nation -- in an area of south Texas known as the Valley. Of every 1,000 girls, 37 are pregnant before they turn 17."
