STUDY SAYS, ANTISOCIAL LEGISLATION ERODES SOCIETY:

Maybe 'blue laws' weren't so bad (David R. Francis, 9/11/06, CS Monitor)

New research finds that many youths who had been classified as "religious" because of their church attendance succumbed to temptation after blue laws were repealed. They drank more alcohol and used other drugs.

Apparently, "religion truly affects behavior," says Daniel Hungerman, an economist at Notre Dame University in South Bend, Ind., and an author of the study. "It really matters."


Duh?!
