Spanking with the Bible Belt

From Reuters:

ATLANTA (Reuters) - In a sleazy hotel room, "Brittany," then aged 16 and drugged into oblivion, waited for the men to arrive. Her pimps sent as many as 17 clients an evening through the door.

A "john" could even pre-book the pretty young blonde for $1,000 a night, sometimes flying in and then flying out from a nearby airport.

None of this happened in Bangkok or Costa Rica, places that have become synonymous with sex tourism and underage sex.

It took place in Atlanta, the buckle of the U.S. Bible Belt, where the world's busiest passenger airport provides a cheaper, more convenient and safer underage sex destination for men seeking girls as young as 10.

Once again, this demonstrates the moral superiority of red states v. blue states - blue states are more moral. For one thing, conservative christians are among the groups with the highest divorce rates. A study by the Barna Research Group shows "that born again Christians are more likely than others to experience a divorce, that pattern has been in place for quite some time. Even more disturbing, perhaps, is that when those individuals experience a divorce many of them feel their community of faith provides rejection rather than support and healing. But the research also raises questions regarding the effectiveness of how churches minister to families."

We've also seen that the right is loaded with gays in denial (or on the down low) and even some guy who admitted to screwing a mule. These are the people who think they can tell us how to live?
