Religion is more dangerous than porn

By Hans Olav Arnesen

Pornography might be bad for you in a number of ways, and is seen by many as an even more immoral form of entertainment than extreme violence on film, or degrading reality shows on television. Perhaps that has led a lot of people to think that there is some sort of justice, divine maybe, in the fact that people who surf websites containing pornographic material run a high risk of contracting computer viruses.

Well, if there´s some sense of justice to the distribution of online viruses then religion seems to be even more worthy of punishment than pornography. According to data collected by the anti-virus vendor Symantec, people that visit religious websites run a risk of contracting a virus that is three times greater than that of porn loving surfers.

According to the Christian Post, Symantec gives two explanations to this surprising found. The first reason why porn-sites are ranked fairly low on the risk list (tenth place), is that these sites are making money on their traffic and therefore have an invested interest in keeping their sites virus-free.

The other explanation is that religious sites are more often the target of various types of attack from people with differing beliefs. As late as March this year, hackers made their way into three church websites and replaced their pages with a clip from the neo-atheist Richard Dawkins as well as a statement branding all religion as a “sickness”.
