ATLANTA (AP) - More than 1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States last year - the most ever reported for a sexually transmitted disease, federal health officials said Tuesday.

"A new U.S. record," said Dr. John M. Douglas Jr. of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

More bad news: Gonorrhea rates are jumping again after hitting a record low, and an increasing number of cases are caused by a "superbug" version resistant to common antibiotics, federal officials said Tuesday.

Syphilis is rising, too. The rate of congenital syphilis - which can deform or kill babies - rose for the first time in 15 years.

"Hopefully we will not see this turn into a trend," said Dr. Khalil Ghanem, an infectious diseases specialist at Johns Hopkins University's School of medicine. ...

Hopefully... people will stop sleeping around! But they won't-- at least if my generation is any clue.

As long as people are willing to exchange their body fluids with more than one person, even the most advanced medicine available will be fighting a rear-guard action.

Bacteria do have mechanisms to exchange genetic data, these mechanisms will work against treatments even beyond antibiotics, and bacteria will ultimately develop resistances to whatever treatments we develop. That's the way the world works, folks.

Ultimately, for all our struggles and vain pretention, we cannot avoid this simple truth: God knows what's best for us. If we disobey His word, we will suffer consequences-- be they physical or otherwise.

Romans 1:24-28

24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
