    The Logical Fallacy of the Day:

    The ninth annual Day of Purity is coming up, being held this year on Valentine’s Day.

    Amber Haskew, the group’s international president, says they are encouraging people to mark the day by wearing a white ribbon or wristband to symbolize their commitment to purity and fidelity within marriage.

    “Living pure is just so, so important,” says Haskew. “Everything from higher income to a lower divorce rate to the obvious physical benefit, and even a lower amount of depression, is found in those who are sexually abstinent outside of marriage.”
