Sex is the leading cause of children

Or something like that.

Anyhow, I wonder why so many people are becoming more critical of programs that encourage teens to make virginity pledges? Well, other than the fact that they don't work:

"We do abstinence because it's the truth," said Pattyn, whose organization is based in Moon Township, Pa. "Whether we've studied it or not doesn't matter. People in Christianity don't give their lives to Christ because it works. You become a Christian because it's the truth. You choose abstinence because it's the truth. Whether it works or not is irrelevant."

Sounds like Pattyn has started a whole new theological debate, to say nothing of the concerns he's raised about the efficacy of his particular program.
