Maybe a better question is, what kind of feeling could a person walk into a church with knowing that people know they have a disease that they have contracted while having sex before they were married?
The major religious belief in the United States is Christianity. Christianity teaches that having sex before getting married is wrong. Having sex is a sin and when people sin they go to hell. Lots of people have sex with other people just to do it. They don’t think of that others feelings. Christianity teaches people to treat others as they would like to be treated. I’m sure no person likes getting his or her feelings hurt. People should think about others before they do such things such as use others for sex.
Christianity also teaches that lust is a sin. It is one of the seven deadly sins and it should not be taken lightly according to religious teachings. Lust leads to sex, and if sex is taken lightly people more and more people will begin to have children out of wedlock.
Pregnancy is also a result of sex. Those who are not married and have children don’t only make their own lives harder by burdening themselves financially but they also make it harder for their children to live without both of their parents there for them at all times. In some cases children are left with just one parent and have to grow up the rest of their lives feeling unwanted because their biological father did not stick around. A child cannot comprehend the fact that his or her father just had was with his or her mother to have sex. How could you explain this to a child? You couldn’t and if you did there would definitely be something wrong with you. An even worse case is a child who is put up for adoption. He or she knows nothing about his or her real parents and is never given the oppurtunity to be given the love that every child deserves from his or her parents. I believe it would be hard not to know who your parents were. It would kill me to think that I could have had a mother and father like most normal people but parents didn’t want me.
Sex is not entirely bad. In my opinion sex should be treated like everything else and be done in moderation. People should learn to understand one another and understand that sex is a big step in relationships. If it were not a big step there would be no point to get married. Why would a person want to buy a used car when they could buy a new car? Sorry that it has to be put that way but that is the harsh reality of it. People who have slept around are not going to have an easy time finding a life mate. Nobody wants somebody who had slept with all of their friends. Why would you? How could you? It would be really awkward having all of my friends standing in my wedding knowing that had all had sex with a person that was going to be my wife in a couple of hours.
Hopefully people will begin to look at everything they can lose from having sex before marriage. The same goes for those who can not be monogamous. People should hold themselves to a higher standard. If people had more confidence I believe that they would feel they needed to have sex to impress people or to make people happy. Sex should be a result of love and should have more meaning than it does to some people.
The entire point is sex has before marriage has consequences. There are many and I’ve only touched based on a few. If I were to go over every reason that sex was wrong the list would never end.

Well then, the anonymous person a couple of comments above obviously fancies himself as a spokesman for God. I only wonder what God thinks about him stating 'God's opinions' without backing them up sufficiently.
Firstly, he gives two quotations from the Bible, neither of which condemn premarital sex. The passage from Corinthians condemns 'sexual immorality' (a very ambiguous term) without explaining exactly what is meant by this. Certainly there's no mention of premarital relations. The passage from Hebrews outlaws adultery, which means cheating on your spouse and has nothing to do with premarital sex. He then goes on to make a number of false statements, for example, that STDs can't be contracted through marriage, that married women never have abortions and that unwanted pregnancies can't occur within marriage. He also makes the frankly offensive assumption that unplanned children are automatically unloved and that no single parent is fit to raise a child.
All in all, a very sorry argument indeed.
