One hundred fifty-six adolescent respondents from
the Virginia Mennonite Conference were surveyed regarding
their perceived influences of their attitudes toward
sexuality and the Mennonite Church's position on various
sexual issues. The adolescents were more sure of their
own beliefs about sexuality than they were about the
church's position. The church was not perceived as a
major source of influence on their attitudes when
compared to friends, the media, and the family. A
comparison of early and late adolescents did not reveal
any significant difference in the amount of perceived
influence of the church. The gender of the respondent
was not found to differentiate significantly on any of
the variables under investigation. The type of school
the adolescent attended--either public or Mennonite--was related
to a difference in the response to beliefs about
premarital sex and pregnancy outside of marriage.
Students at public schools held more accepting views on these issues.
