Real Or Artificat?

Is this just selection bias, or is some actual cause and effect?

A Christian education makes teenage boys less permissive, according to research out today.

Boys at private Anglican and Catholic schools are more likely to oppose sex before marriage and be less tolerant of pornography.


He found that 62 per cent of those educated at Christian private schools claimed to believe that pornography was too widely available. Only four in 10 boys at other schools agreed. While only 13 per cent of boys at nondenominational schools were against sex outside marriage, the proportion jumped to 64 per cent among their Christian-educated peers.
I haven't been able to get my hands on the actual study, but I would need some data concerning these kids' parents before drawing any cause-and-effect conclusions. After all, more Christians tend to have these views and (coincidently) also tend the send their children to Christian schools. Go figure.
