See New study finds that teens who lose their virginity are more likely to divorce. Read the stats at the link. It is quite compelling. Somehow I doubt that the answer to the title question is “yes.” So you better tell your kids, and kids, you should tell your friends.
Divorce is very costly, very painful and very avoidable. Out-of-wedlock sex also leads to more divorce, diseases, unplanned pregnancies and abortions. If groups like Planned Parenthood, public schools, false religious teachers and the media really had your long-term best interests at heart they would put this on the front page for weeks. But that isn’t their agenda. They are too busy telling kids not to have sex until they are ready — which, shockingly enough, is right about the time they really want to have sex!
From the commentary there (emphasis added):
This dovetails nicely with the previous studies that Mysterious C sent me that showed that, for men and women, the more sexual partners you have before marriage, the more unstable your marriage will be. See the related posts for more. If you’re still a virgin, like me, (and I’m in my mid-thirties now, and I’m saving my first kiss for my engagement), then there is nothing wrong with you. If you want a stable marriage, then you don’t have sex before you’re married. There are tons of virgins out there, and there is a huge difference in the quality of romantic relationships when both parties exercise self-control with physical touching.
See the latest from Unborn Scheming Baby in Republicans move to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level. Here’s one example:
Minnesota Republicans introduced SF 1224, a bill that does not mention Planned Parenthood by name, but which prohibits state grant funds from being given to any organization that provides abortions or refers patients for abortion.
If passed, the bill would remove state funds from all of the 24 clinics that Planned Parenthood operates in Minnesota.
Every bit helps. Less $$ to Planned Parenthood will result in less abortions. Don’t believe the nonsense about the public funding only supporting the condoms / pap smears side of PP. If the government sends you money it ultimately gets spent any way you like.
Also see Planned Parenthood overview for how, in addition to being the top destroyer of human life in the country, they systematically hide statutory rape and sex trafficking (when not teaching your kids to ignore your perspectives on human sexuality).

Stealing an election, Minnesota / Democrat style — after all the whining about how Bush “stole” an election when he really didn’t, where are the Democrats now? What about making every vote count? How about a little consistency?
There is a God, so repent and believe in Christ. Then you can stop worrying and truly enjoy your life — now and forever.
OK, the title isn’t as pithy as the atheists’ bus signs with the slogan below , but it is more accurate.
There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.
Richard Dawkins, who told the BBC that the ad campaign was designed to make people think, an action he said was “anathema to religion.”
Actually, it is Dawkins who is not a clear thinker, while Christianity applauds reason, logic and evidence. Among other things, he thinks he solves his problem of God by hypothesizing that life on earth could have come from aliens — as if that would accomplish anything more than moving the concept of a creator back one degree.
You’re both wrong: The Denver Post removed a reference to “the Lord” from a quote by potential Illinois Senator Roland Burris (“We are hoping and praying that they will not be able to deny what the Lord has ordained.”) . The paper appears to suffer from Christophobia for deleting the religious reference. And if the Senator claims to speak for God then the burden of proof is on him to demonstrate that God really ordained this.
