The Condom Myth
Gainesville, Florida – November 20, 2013 – The recent policy statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics <http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/132/5/973.full.pdf+html?sid=e043422f-2483-44b5-b4b8-62f4fe0deda8> urging pediatricians to distribute condoms to their adolescent patients is misguided, unfounded, and potentially harmful to the sexual and mental health of America’s young people.
The statement justifies condom distribution by advocating the myth of “safe sex”. The unrelenting exponential rise in sexually transmitted infections in nations such as Spain, which has among the highest adolescent condom use rates, proves that condoms do not reduce risk of STI spread nearly enough. We know from studies in Britain that free oral contraception and free emergency contraception, let alone distribution of condoms, do not lower teen pregnancy rates.
College Vice President, Dr. Michelle Cretella stated, “Even if condoms were close to 100% effective in this regard, they do not cover the mind or the heart.”
Sexual debut during adolescence has been conclusively established as an independent risk factor for depression as well as suicidal ideation among teens. Promiscuous sexual activity has grave consequences. The best neuroscience available indicates that adolescent brain development is not fully mature until the mid-twenties. The distribution of condoms sends a mixed message. Adolescents need to be given clear information about the most healthful behaviors: Delaying sexual debut is best and is achievable. The American College of Pediatricians encourages physicians to educate their adolescent patients on the benefits of delaying all sexual activity until marriage.
The American College of Pediatricians is a national medical association of licensed physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in the care of infants, children, and adolescents. The mission of the College is to enable all children to reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being.

‘Convert or Die’
Nigerian Christians on High Alert
The Tide Radio Ministry Ministers in Nigeria and Worldwide to Bring the Hope and Peace of Jesus Christ to Persecuted Christians
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Boko Haram, an Al-Qaeda-backed militant jihadist group in northeastern Nigeria has kidnapped a young Christian woman and forced her at knifepoint to convert to Islam, or die. She was beaten for speaking, crying – almost anything she did. Boko Haram has been attacking Christians in Nigeria and is looking to rid this region of Christians altogether.
The Tide has been bringing the gospel via radio to Nigeria in the hopes of impacting all of northern Africa to stop the violence that continues to threaten people’s lives throughout the country.
As violence fills the streets in Nigeria, Don Shenk, Director of the Tide, a 67-year-old global gospel ministry that produces radio programs in several heart languages throughout the world, hopes to fill people’s hearts with the work of their radio ministry and touch the lives of all people in Nigeria to prevent these attacks and decrease violence in the region.
“Boko Haram is known in this province for attacks on churches and other venues where Christians gather. As our brothers and sisters in Nigeria work to resume their ministry and evangelize for the Kingdom of Christ, we pray for healing and God’s peace to be on those affected by the violence,” said Shenk. “We have heard many stories and know some that have been persecuted for their faith. Our heart language radio programs can offer victims healing and the hope that, through Christ, they will be reunited with their loved ones here on earth or in Heaven. We also pray for God’s divine protections on other Christians and missionaries in the region, and that as Paul said to Timothy in I Timothy 2, that we should pray also for those in authority, and that God’s people in Nigeria will be able to live in peace.”
The Tide is working diligently to expand its Christian broadcasts in more languages throughout Africa. The Tide now offers radio broadcasts in 19 languages throughout the world. The Tide’s Vision 2015 initiative builds on the momentum of more than six decades of radio ministry, and strives to add several new languages to their efforts over the next two years. With almost a quarter of the world’s population living within the current range of The Tide radio programming, and nearly 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, the opportunities are tremendous. Several new potential languages are also being considered for strategic Tide growth, such as those spoken by people in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. Currently, The Tide serves people speaking in eight of the major languages spoken in Nigeria.
An alarmingly high number of people across the globe have never heard the message of God’s saving love for lack of a simple $40 radio. At the same time, Christianity is growing worldwide, partly because of programs like The Tide’s. Thousands of generous people across the United States have enabled The Tide’s radio programs to thrive and expand into even more countries through its “Sponsor a Radio” program that helps further projects like The Tide’s Radios for India and Radios for Nigeria.
This list is not complete but is a sample of the most egregious violence that occurred during the month of September.
