Teens Have More Sex In The Bible Belt

Which states are more prim and proper, red states or blue states? It turns of states which vote majority Republican are states with more teenage sex than states that vote majority Democrat. Bible Belt states that regularly vote Republican have more of certain kinds of recorded sin. Spousal abuse is another.

There are commenters here on my blog who think they are dishing ouy the ultimate insult by telling me atheism is a religion. They have various ways to justify this, science is our god, we have regular meetings as does a church, we have fellowship like a church and so on. It’s OK if they think this. It has nothing to do with anything. What could be said about some branches of Christianity is that they have replaced their god.

The long standing Christian “package” has been belief in God and living lives prescribed by the faith. There were different versions of what this meant but it was what we might call “clean living.”

When branches of the faith endorsed Donald Trump known for his lying, cheating and lack of interest in the faith many of us thought it was some kind of aberration. Perhaps Trump’s sins were not known or believed.

Now, we see a large part of the same demographic justifying support of Roy Moore. It appears to me the transition is complete. The faith for those “Christians” is no long some deity but is about a certain set of political ideologies or tribalism.

Maybe it’s time to take down the cross.

    Great Article! It quantifies what I have observed over time.

    There are commenters here on my blog who think they are dishing ouy the ultimate insult by telling me atheism is a religion. Jon. The hypocritical orangutans who comment on here need to look in the mirror once in a while, ……..or they don’t dare to. Anyway, I ignore them and refuse to answer their nonsense.

    Maybe u don’t hear the more sex in other less Bible belt places, IE liberal, because they are less honest with the public. After all we now have Al Franken, elevation and how many more people from the other side of the coin with their sex deeds coming to life 20 + Years later. Really just the no less belt?

      It wasn’t about what I heard. The link I provided explained the information came from what teens themselves said about their sex activities. Certainly it could be teens in one part of the country are most honest than in another. There is no way to know. Just based on the social cultures of what we call the “North” and “South”, we always assume the South is more conservative. That would place social pressure on teens not to admit their sexual activity. But, they claimed they have sex more often.

        “what teens themselves said about their sex activities. ”

        This is the downside of the so-called Social Sciences: the credibility of the informants on a whole host of subjects: teens, gamblers, alcoholics, pedophiles… Margaret Meade’s whole claim to fame was eventually discredited because of it.

    Jon:“When branches of the faith endorsed Donald Trump known for his lying, cheating and lack of interest in the faith many of us thought it was some kind of aberration. Perhaps Trump’s sins were not known or believed.”

    Great hyperbole based on some sinful uncouth locker room talk.

    Meanwhile we have the whole entire senate very content with the previous works of Kennedy/Dodd. These absolute darling angels by several accounts created a waitress sandwich. Not a peep from the senate despite this account being published and readily accepted.

    The senate is really not interested in the rights of women. The senate is really interested in ruining people who they do not like. The good ol’ boys who pick up waitresses and slam them on the dinner table breaking all the crystal are good. The message I am given is that they will still considered to be good. If you aren’t in the club, they will find/pay a women from 38 years in your past to suddenly make accusation.

    This is great stuff.

    More sex in the South? I think so. Spontaneous sex is difficult with all the layers of long underwear, snow suits, down parkas, and snowmobile boots, with romantic locations being more restricted. A hay loft is a cold place in the winter. Only so much whiskey is effective in producing a warming effect before the deleterious effect of too much alcohol “She makes her underwear of hides of grizley bear, and bathes in ice cold water every day. Her skin I love to touch, but I just can’t touch it much because her fur lined parka is in the way. Carry me back to old Virginnie” (A song).

    1. Catcher 5:24 Reminds me of an old one. One guy asks another, “How did it go with that beautiful girl last night?” “Well it was great until when we were undressing. I folded my clothes carefully like I always do. Then, when I was putting the shoe horns in my shoes she just got up and left.”

    The bible belt is heavy in blacks too so whats your point? It has nothing to do with religion but rather the racial makeup. Blacks are poorer on average and thus will commit more crime, sex, ect. ect. It’s not hard to connect the dots.

    1. 9:12 Grant 9:12 The bible belt is heavy in blacks too so whats your point? It has nothing to do with religion but rather the racial makeup.

      The link did not break surveys down by race. That may or may not be true. If you have some credible source on this you can post it here.
