Fainting Couch Alert!

Virginity pledgers often dishonest about past:

Teenagers who take pledges to remain virgins until marriage are likely to deny having taken the pledge if they later become sexually active. Conversely, those who were sexual active before taking the pledge frequency deny their sexual history, according to new study findings...

"Psychology studies in a variety of contexts seem to demonstrate that people's memories of their behavior are consistent with their beliefs rather than their actual behavior," [study author Janet Rosenbaum, of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts] told Reuters Health.

I can't believe this! Surely the good Christian teens who take virginity pledges wouldn't ever lie! Obviously Ms. Rosenbaum is the liar. But what can you expect from a bastion of secular liberal extremism like Harvard?
