There is a great deal of hype on the recently published report regarding abstinence training and its inability to stem promiscuous sexual behavior. This report was immediately sent up the web food chain on digg.com and reddit.com.
It’s always interesting to me how these sites promote just about any pro-sex article that comes along, but quietly ignore others.
The Rand Corporation, for example, recently released a report that showed a link between religiosity and the prevention of AIDS (click here for the summary). It turns out that “moral beliefs may indicate an underlying altruism and a desire to make sure no one else is infected with HIV.”
This report gets no big diggs on digg!
