    You have to correct the underlying corrupted behavior, not patch up the symptom. You're trying to put a band-aid on a bullet wound.
    You're analogy is incorrect, however, your method is more like passing out bibles to curb gun violence. It's not realistic.

    Why not respond to the question rather than deflect?

    Lack of honesty? How about and let's be honest about the CAPABILITY of both Islam and Chritisnity. Both have the capability to be good or bad depending on the interpretation of it.

    It is DISHONEST to say ISLAM is a violent religion when we have PEACEFUL Muslims able to practice it, just as it is DISHONEST to say Christianity has ONLY had a history of peace. Both religions have proven that they can be good or bad depending on the followers. It isn't the religion that is the problem, it's the interpretation of the religions.

    The point of the analogy is that you're promoting immoral/harmful behavior in order to quell behavior that is even more harmful.

    It is YOUR OPINION that is is immoral, not mine. Your opinion is no greater than mine, however, abstenince only has proven to be an ineffective means to curb preganancies and STDs in the U.S.

    No, I practiced it quite often with my wife before we got married. I don't think it is immoral at all.
