Fun With Numbers

From the April 2005 Harper's Index:

Percentage of born-again US Christians who have been divorced: 35

Percentage of other Amercans who have been: 35

Chances that the divorce of a born-again Christian happened after he or she accepted Christ: 9 in 10

Estimated number of yung Christians in 1995 who had pledged to wait until marriage for sex: 2,500,000

Estimated percentage who waited: 12

These numbers really require no further commentary.
