Red Families - Blue Families

In a related story to the vile soon to be ex-Congressman Souder, "Red Families v. Blue Families" a provocative new book by two law professors, Naomi Cahn and June Carbone. The authors depict a culturally conservative “red America” that’s stuck trying to sustain an outdated social model. By insisting (unrealistically) on chastity before marriage, Cahn and Carbone argue, social conservatives guarantee that their children will get pregnant early and often (see Bristol Palin), leading to teen childbirth, shotgun marriages and high divorce rates.

In fact 6 of the 7 states with the highest divorce rates are Red states. I would assume California made the list thanks to Larry King, the Kardashians and a few other Hollywood serial divorcers. All seven states with the lowest divorce rates are liberal strongholds.
