There are no surprises here. Islam is a chaste religion.
"Muslim women living in countries with very few Muslims overall are more than three times as likely to have had premarital sex as Muslim women in countries where 90 percent of the population adheres to Islam. "
Of course this survey was probably conducted with the survey of educated folk.
What of the great unwashed, uneducated mass of poor people in the USA. A measure of single mothers
confirms that the USA, a mainly Christian country has the greatest number and percentage of unwed mothers and hence have engaged in pre-marital sex.

Yeah, and it couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that in some Islamic countries the punishment for women who have premarital sex is death.

There are more non-Muslims in the world than Muslims.
And all of the people are not Christians.
Your survey is invalid.

Maybe if the filthy muslims got drunk and got laid once in a while, they would be strapping bombs to themselves all the time.

I agree. Frustration in Muslim men that cannot get their hands on unveiled babies or children is so obviously driving them to jihad.

AAI, why didn't you include a little more from the article? Actually even the little part of what you posted answered the researcher's question: was Muslims lower premarital sex driven by "individual choice" or by "the force of national culture" - you post actually refutes your claim that Islam promotes chastity, because believers of the same religion reports 3 times more premarital sex where they wouldn't be punished. Chastity can only be determined when one is given the choice to be otherwise and choose to be chaste.

Even with Islamic society's harse punishment of pre-marrital sex, it is still over 60%, not much better than western where people laws don't punish consensual sex...(although your prophet would be jailed for life for his sex with child, sex with slave girls and 9 wives at once). Actually Islam's unnatural law seems to have a negative effect on muslims mentality about sex, they have extremely high rate of raping women in western countries (while in muslim coountries they simply cover it up because women wouldn't report out of fear for silly Islamic laws).

From article:

"They found that Muslims were the least likely of all major religious groups to have had sex before marriage.(Even so, the rate was over 60 percentóbut still significantly lower than for Buddhists or Jews.)

Sex is a notoriously difficult subject to study. There are all sorts of reasons people dissemble about what they do in the privacy of the bedroom, and you can imagine those incentives are even stronger when youíre a woman in a conservative Muslim household being asked whether you had sex before marrying your husband. Aware of these challenges, the researchers ran several statistical tests to assess respondentsí truthfulness. They found that Muslims and Hindus were actually the least likely of all religious groups to fib about premarital sex. This could suggest that Muslims and Hindus have fewer transgressions to lie about; or it could mean that Muslims and Hindus are better dissemblers, given the heightened consequences of premarital sex in those cultures.

All major religions prohibit premarital sex, but Muslims appear to take Islamís proscriptions especially seriously. Why? Adamczyk and Hayes wanted to know whether the lower level of premarital sex among Muslims was driven more by individual choice or by the force of national culture. To test this, they looked at how the probability of a Muslim woman having had premarital sex changes depending on how dominant Islam is in the country where she lives. They found big effects: Muslim women living in countries with very few Muslims overall are more than three times as likely to have had premarital sex as Muslim women in countries where 90 percent of the population adheres to Islam."

Did you read the article or just cherry pick the bits you want? take a look at the graphs there is only a couple of percent difference between them all. So by your thinking because the muslims are a couple of percent less likley to have sex before marriage that makes it a chaste religion. Also you are relying on the honesty of the ones questioned, who is more likely to tell the truth about premarital sex, one who is married to a strict muslim, or one who is married to someone in the west?
There are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics. I wouldn't crow to much about these figures as they don't include the number of girls raped before marriage, which reach astronomical figures in the muslim world.

The Rev. Paul Sullins, a sociologist at the Catholic University of America, said the study's findings are not surprising, because much of the data comes from conservative Islamic nations.

"The burqa really works," Sullins said. "When you cover your women head to toe with cloth to keep them from being viewed by men outside their family, and you keep them strictly segregated from men throughout their growing years until they get married, you're going to have less premarital sex."

I agree with the Reverend proving Islam is the most chaste religion with more virgins on the planet than anu other religion.

However this survey is skewed in that it only discusses the major religions.
How many Satanists are in America while at the same time professing to be Christian.

How can we account for the incredible statistics relating to incest in America, the disappearence of young children never to be seen alive again,
the number of animal mutilations and sacrifices in fields and so the horror goes on and on.

I agree, but Muslims can't help being racist and bigotted, it's what comes of following Mohammed the false prophet.
