More sex please! We’re religious conservatives.
A recent survey shows hypocrisy at its best. An article in New Scientist, Porn in the USA, reports on a study by Harvard Business School that shows conservative and religious states are the biggest consumers of online pornography.
Apparently, 5.47 per 1000 consumers of online pornography in Utah regularly exchange bashing their Bible, or Book of Mormon for bashing their Bishop — except on Sundays. It turns out that a 0.1% drop in subscriptions correlates with a 1% increase in post code church attendance. Residents who most agreed with the statement, “I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage,” bought 3.6 per 1000 more subscriptions than those who disagreed with the statement.
It makes one wonder if even the believers really believe. Well, may be on Sundays.
