A New Strain of Gonorhea Does not Respond to any Medicine we Have 10/09/2012

For eighteen centuries, gonorrhea was a constant reminder of the dangers of sexual promiscuity. “The 18-century British writer James Boswell, Samuel Johnson's biographer, called it a ‘memorandum of vice’ before dying himself from what are believed to be complications of the illness writes Eric Metaxas, a Christian Post Guest Columnist.

“At the turn of the 20th century, the New York City medical examiner estimated that 80 percent of the men in the city had contracted the illness at least once in their lives.”

However, we discovered an antibiotic cure, and believed we were free to pursue as many sex partners as we wanted.

The New Yorker magazine describes a new strain of gonorrhea that antibiotics cannot "reliably treat" this disease.
Since its discovery in 2009, this strain has spread to every country in Europe, and much of east Asia.

Thus, in the magazine's words, "Whatever freedoms were won during the sexual revolution, bacterial evolution promises soon to constrain."
