I agree with you on what you posted. These young people being lured into the industry has no idea it may cost them their life.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A recent study of Chlamydia and gonorrhea infection and re-infection rates for adult film industry performers from 2004-2008 revealed startling findings regarding the high rates of sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) in the adult film industry, said AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today. Among the findings: Chlamydia incidence in adult film performers was 8.5 times higher than the rate in Los Angeles County residents aged 18-29 and 34 times higher than in the general population. Gonorrhea incidence was 18 times higher in porn performers than Los Angeles County residents aged 18-29 and 64 times higher than in the general population.

Startling Statistics
The demographics of the cases and the re-infection rates also proved illuminating. Among the facts:
75% of cases were among performers aged 18-29
72.4% of the women infected were between ages 18-24
55.4% of the male performers infected were ages 20-24
Between 2004-2007, the re-infection rate within one year was 26.1%
Female performers were 27% more likely to be re-infected than males

“The rates for Chlamydia and gonorrhea of adult film industry performers were 34 and 64 times higher than rates in the general population in Los Angeles, respectively, and 8.5 and 18 times higher than rates in 18 to 29 year-olds. Part of these increased rates might be explained by more frequent screening of workers in the adult film industry, compared with the general population, and more complete reporting of cases to the local health jurisdiction by clinics that serve industry workers.

Atheist believe:
1) Big Bang when nothing exploded.
2) spontaneous self generating life.
3) one very week single cell life form
creating all plant and animal life that ever lived.
4) That atheism will replace God.
LOL!!!
Theist believe in God.
The first thing you typed is completely wrong, how do you expect to make any sense?
The Big Bang Theory is not that nothing exploded.
It is that a infinitesimal expanded into the space/time continuum.

There is no theory of spontaneous self generating life.

This is an approximation , but leaves out to many details to be meaningful.

(((3) one very week single cell life form
creating all plant and animal life that ever lived.)))

This statement is a fallacy...

(((4) That atheism will replace God.)))

You are nothing but a case of rampart denial, and twist everything to suit yourself. Most due to lack of understanding I would guess.

OR you're just a complete troll who purpose is to argue .

Hey, if I turn atheist, can I still come on here and post incessantly about God even though I claim to not believe He exists?
Sure, if that interests you. Not all atheists have the same hobbies you know. I find religion and religious belief interesting, both psychologically and philosophically.

The fight is against something you believe doesn’t exist.

Your not fighting the belief UFO’s exist.

Nor are you asking the elimination of the tooth fairy.

Your not going to war against Dracula.

Your not fighting the elimination of Santa.

You are not fighting the people who say we didn’t land men on the moon.

But you are fighting against God. God must be real or you wouldn’t be fighting so hard.

Its possible it stopped and started in the opposite direction, but the most likely scenario is that it shifted it's orbit.
Uranus rolls like a barrel, Venus rotates opposite.
If it was flipped from an impact it would still be turning in the same direction it started , but is upside down.

Well, so far,
1. no one has tried to say that the Tooth Fairy is real and that if I don't believe in her, I will burn in Hell.
2. no one has tried to force the Tooth Fairy into public school science classes.
3. no one has tried to force me to buy the Tooth Fairy's commandments to hang in public buildings.
4. no one has forced, "One Nation, Under the Tooth Fairy", into the nation's Pledge.
5. no one has forced, "In the Tooth Fairy We Trust", on our currency.
6. The Tooth Fairy doesn't have priests who rape young boys and then hides the priest from prosecution.
Need I say more or is this getting through?
You probably can find something in the school libraries about the “Tooth Fairy and many other fictional characters.
But a Bible is forbidden? You claim it’s fiction then why isn’t it allowed in Schools like all the other fiction books?

You may say because it has religious contents. So does Harry Potter.

As far as Priest sexually violating young boys. The Bible talks about a great whore in Revelation 17. Do you know who this is being depicted?

There’s one city throughout history known as the city of 7 hills. That city is Rome.

There’s a lot of good honest people in the Catholic Church. But their leadership from Rome on down is packed with pedophiles that should have been arrested, prosecuted. I don’t believe in vigilantism. I also don’t believe criminals going free.

Local law enforcement has failed to do their job on this matter all across the country including the FBI. For many fled to avoid being prosecuted.

Why aren’t you working to improve education worldwide?

There are many places throughout the world that have no schools. You don’t seem to be concerned about that nor the 30% of kids that drop out of high schools across the nation.

No, your fight is not against ignorance but religious liberties guaranteed in the Constitution.

Here is a good opportunity to try some critical thinking skills.

Do people who believe in UFOs, Santa, Dracula, the tooth fairy, etc proselytize and try and use the government to foist their ideology on other people to the degree that certain Christian groups do in this country?
