Red sex, blue sex

Here's an interesting article in the New Yorker about Mark Regnerus' book about Christian youth and sex. It's entitled Red Sex, Blue Sex. Wow, politics, religion, and sex all together in one book--should be a bestseller.

From the article: "Regnerus argues that religion is a good indicator of attitudes toward sex, but a poor one of sexual behavior, and that this gap is especially wide among teen-agers who identify themselves as evangelical."

It will be interesting to see how big the differences in sexual behavior are, especially when controlling for other factors such as race & class.

Thank you John, Ben and Gary for the link.
