“The destructiveness of the new morality is startling: In the United States, the planet’s current trend-setter, from 1960 to 2014 rapes increased about 250% ; out-of-wedlock births increased ten-fold from 1940 to 2014; abortions increased about 800% from 1943 to 2913. By the year 2016, an estimated 675,000 people in the United States had died of HIV/AIDS. This complex tragedy is a result of the rejection, or ignorance, of the Judeo-Christian tradition about proper sexual relations.”
