Abstract

This paper examines the comparative impact of religious belief and practice (religiosity), Christian fundamentalist beliefs, and religious context on alcohol use, sexual activity, and illegal drug use among student respondents at twelve American universities. Results indicate that religious context has the strongest suppressive effect on deviant behavior while Christian fundamentalist beliefs have the weakest effect. This work supports the “Moral Communities Hypothesis.”
