    Olympic Village Stocked with Condoms for Horny Athletes at 2012 London Games - National Ledger

    Well, i guess its safe to say that the entire World has bought into the sexual hedonism mantra of 'get it while you can' ; looks like London has signed up to be the international STD Mecca to the World (since Condoms DONT stop all STD's plus they tear, rip, and come off in times of passion) . Another obvious outcome will be a trip to Ones local Walk-in Abortion Mill due to sexual hedonism gone further wrong.

    Just when you think societal moral degradation had topped off .....

    This is hardly new, this has been reported on at previous Olympics. You have a bunch of incredibly fit and attractive people from all corners of the world involved in an emotional competition for the best in their field. What exactly do you expect is going to happen?

    No duh they don't stop STDs in every instance, but I've not seen any official source saying that they do. They stop it a heck of a lot better than having unprotected sex though, which is their function.

    Well don't complain about giving condoms out then ^_^

    Just when you think someone couldn't spin this tired trope any further.

    It's all very well simply repeating "Don't do that! No, don't that!" over and over again, a subset of people are still going to do as they please. Now, you can deal with the negative consequences or you can not. Do Christians actually want to reduce harm, or do they simply want to be right?

    If you're actually making the claim that these actions are wrong based on their consequences - more sensible than expecting everyone to believe your holy texts, for one - then the view needs modification when the consequences are lessened by technology etc.

    These people are going to get jiggy no matter how fauxtraged Christians get - and given how cheap condoms are, there is no reason not to include a few in case.

    Your post confirms what occurs when people would rather have a reprobate mind than have moral integrity .

    "Everyone doing what they *think* is right in their own mind...." . 'Go for the gusto now ...worry about the aftermath later' . :doh:

    If you are worried abut STD transmission and unwanted pregnancies I would think that you would support things that reduce them or would you rather see people suffer when they violate your moral code?

    King James Version (KJV)
    17 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
    2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
    3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
    4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
    5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of whores And Abominations Of The Earth.
    6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
    7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
    8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
    9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
    10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
    11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
    12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
    13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
    14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
    15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
    17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
    18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

    1. Its not 'my' moral code ; its the objective moral code that has been prescribed in the fibre of every person on Earth --- the intrinsic Moral Code which people are required to obey and not willfully suppress / veto so they can use another human being for a mere copulation then move onto the next sexual immoral quest.

    1.a. Have you acquired a morality-phobia along the way , and if so, how did that come about for yourself ? I was once at that place for a good number of years as a practicing atheist-heathenist until Christ radically changed my life .

    2. Im concerned about any Organization (or person) that flagrantly promotes/endorses a highly dangerous lifestyle (sexual hedonism) where its Players have lost their lives prematurely from at least two widespread fatal STD's in circulation plus many others that last a lifetime without a cure .

    2.a. It seems this strikes an apathetic-chord with yourself and other Heathens as evidenced by your posts in this thread ? Isnt it noble to take a concerned proactive stand against that which is wrong and very harmful to society as opposed to not really caring about it (?)

    3. I DO support moral measures that reduce STD contraction and unwanted pregnancies which is why i support abstinence and Godly living ; Conversely, flooding a society with condoms which are not foolproof and telling the masses to have as much sexual hedonism as they can muster up leads to greater unwanted pregnancies and murdering of developing unborn human beings in addition to greater spread of STD's due to sexual hedonism gone (further) wrong , because of increased wrongful activity . Americas current STD Epidemic of 39 harmful STD's shared among 65,000,000 adult Americans with 15,000,000 new cases added annually (not including 1 in 6 middle-schoolers having an std) is proof positive that the 'safe sex' mantra is nothing but a fraudulent myth .

    Who's telling "the masses to have as much sexual hedonism as they can muster up "?

    Are Olympic athletes considered "the masses" now?

    Other then your say so on what do you base your idea that your take on sexual morals is somehow built into humans?

    I do not have an irrational fear or hatred of your sexual morals, I just disagree.

    Providing adults with a means of lowering their chances of STD transmission does not suddenly make sex mandatory, they are free to keep their genitalia to them selves.

    Not when your "proactive stand" is to be against measures that lowed the rates of STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

    By all means, just win people over to your view then no matter how many condoms are handed out they will go unused.

    Out of curiosity do you oppose the HPV vaccination?

    1. What do you think is behind the distribution of 150,000 condoms (amounting to approx. 15 per person) all about then ??? The worlds biggest water balloon fight ?!

    2. Yes, thousands of Athletes coming from all over the world representing their individual Country converging at a singular location , are considered a Mass ; do you consider it a garden party ?!

    Uhuh. So thats the evil powers that be telling them to get their hedonism on is it? Whatever. I guess its the same way that putting seat belts in cars encourages people to have car accidents.
    A MASS possibly, but you refered to "the masses", which is generally considered to mean something else.

    1. Your analogy is a non-sequitur . Objectively, its always wrong for a human being to use another for selfish gain ... even if both people consent to it. Two people having a reprobate Mind thereby agreeing to do something wrong , never suddenly makes it right and permissible. So yes...the Committee that decided to toss out 15 condoms per person is evil , immoral, and a clear display of apathy from the proven consequences of such reckless sexual lifestyles . I hope The Queen didnt put her stamp of approval on it , otherwise she willfully lost her moral compass too.

    2. Ok. A Mass of people then .

    Seems like you want there to be bad consequences for having sex. Because how can you condemn it, if people aren't getting pregnant and STDs?

    I am for whatever God has instructed thru his words to all of mankind called The Bible. I figure he should have a pretty good handle on whats best for us and how we should live .

    Contraceptives used for sex within a marriage to prevent conception because it may not be the right time to bring a child into the marriage yet, etc... is fine . Contraceptives used for dangerous casual sex with the unmarried...is not fine because it enables sexual immorality ; instead such people need to delay gratification until they are ready to get married and at the same time they will avoid STD's of which two can kill and which most are permenant for life with no cure...in addition to eliminating a child being born out of wedlock or worse, the mother killing her developing child by giving permission to have it broken to pieces then sucked into a nearby sink while she patiently sits by .

    The whole idea by obeying God and his moral laws, are so we dont end up harming ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually ; he isnt a killjoy to our fun....he loves us so much . We reap what we sow.

    Ah, explain more about this objective moral code. How do we know what the code is? What if we disagree about what the code is? Can we reason together to figure it out?

    Don't argue with the atheists here, the bible is not their moral compass.
