Proving that prayer evidently only gets you so far, a new study finds that the nation's largest consumers of online porn are conservative, religious Republicans who believe "AIDS might
be God's punishment for immoral sexual behaviour." Still, cries of hypocrisy are premature: The study of
credit-card receipts from a major pornography provider also found that church-goers buy fewer copies of "Heather Gets Hot" and other delights on Sundays.
"Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be
consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by," notes Benjamin Edelman of Harvard Business School. "One natural hypothesis is...if you're told you can't have this, then you want it more."
