Porn is not one of America's biggest problems. It can be an addiction as sex, drugs, gambling, alcohol, etc. Addictions are funnels for gangster cash.. Where there is crime, shoot a volley of new law, smarter law, follow the money law.

I really hate an adult man inviting all ages to a meeting on porn. Last youth leader I knew is spending 1 to 5. got off light.

I hate to nit pick to. Law is the source of ganster cash. When was the last time gangs sold smokes other than those that were stolen and therefor sold cheaper because gangsters don't pay taxes. I suppose you could call religion an addiction, but so is atheism.

" I suppose you could call religion an addiction, but so is atheism." In that case, so is abstinence from compulsive alcohol, cocaine, etc.

Personally, I'm addicted to ex-nicotine.

Part of your name says it all. As I read it, history teaches money (and power--the two may be the same) talks and BS walks.

"in over their heads with pornography."

Is it me, or is there something pornographic about that line?

I strongly question any "religious service" talking about pornography that allows "all ages" to attend. That is just wrong. Reject intelligent and factual discussions about human sexuality with pre-adults, but support yelling about the evils of porn to them. Great. As usual, I suspect they protest too much.

You probably just saw that fake video with the guys head going where you wouldn't really think it would fit. There are things you cannot unsee.

"As usual, I suspect they protest too much. "

Are you insinuating a god-fearing man would commit sexual acts with a woman for reasons other than making more little god-fearing people?

I have two of one and lots of the other. Thanks for your interest though.

Studies prove many preachers use porn. Perhaps they are feeling guilty. The first profits made from most media advances were usually sex related. The Internet is no exception..

Well, I guess they just got bored with the Missionary's position.

Went to the site and was interested to learn that using the internet for dating or to make romantic connections with people is also a problem.

And so are romance novels.

Who knew?

Think I'll celebrate with a XXX church service of my own tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration Craig.

Occasionally, my onions need a little porn for inspiration.

Now is this really how we want to treat an industry that helped make the internet what it is today? What about all those poor married guys that are no longer getting any...Lol

edmclinn 6 years, 9 months ago

I'm actually fine with doing away with porn, as long as we also institute a law the requires married females to give it up at least 5 time a week!

You have to be married and/or have a girlfriend first...

Porn is good, Porn is great. Makes it easier to Mast...er the practical art of erotic cinema.

Terry Sexton 6 years, 8 months ago

That's coming up again, right? Ah, the Rapture. Good times!

"National Porn Sunday" instigated by more than 300 churches? OK, this has to be satire. Isn't it? Tell me it is.

kawrivercrow 6 years, 8 months ago

Whatever any of you do, don't go to jarsquatter dotcom. It is not porn. However, after seeing it, I had to have my mind removed, cleansed by a shaman and put back in place.

I am glad most of you find this so damned funny. It is not. I for one do support and have very open and honest talks with my son about sexuality. I tell him it is to be treated with the utmost of respect, I do not tell him sex is dirty, I tell him it is serious, meant to be a beautiful thing, and not to be exploited. Most of the posters laughing their butts off here are men, right? Let me tell you a few things. When a man has a wife and family and brings filth into the home, it poisons and destroys the marriage. To me, my now ex-husband spending hours and thousands of dollars on porn was just as much cheating as if I had caught him with a "live" woman. The day came when I found not just the genre of porn which is legal for an adult to possess, but stories about incest, and one about a man who raped his step-daughter. Better believe he went, and quickly. This man has left unspeakable materials out in plain view of our sons, who are now 11 and 12. And yes, I know it is normal for boys that age to be interested in sexuality. One other thing, even the porn which is legal for adults is not legal to place in the hands of children!!

That's a tragic story.
It reminds me of how sometimes the wife of a raging drunk with no self control castigates entire crowds of men who drink a 6-pack a month. In the woman's mind, all alcohol should be banned, as it is clearly the root of all evil. These women who marry closet alcoholics or 'pre-alcoholics' were (subconsciously or not) aware of signs that most other people would have picked up on, yet chose to ignore.
Perhaps you can relate.

People are probably sick of hearing me say this....too bad.

Tax the porn industry; magazines/books, vidieos, pervert clubs (aka strip clubs), websites etc.

The porm industry isn't going to go away, this is one way to take advantage of it. Don't want to pay the tax? Easy, steer clear of porn = simple.

"One recent poll shows that 51% of all ministers admit to having at least occasionally looked at pornography on the net, and some 37% admit to having a problem with this matter." ===


Interesting problem. The same site has an article that looks interesting: Hilary Rodham Clinton more Dangerous than Lucifer?...

oldvet 6 years, 2 months ago

I'll bet that Bill thought that about her when he was "not having sex with that woman..."

somedude20 6 years, 2 months ago

I bet it would turn them on if they knew that you are thinking about him "not having sex with that woman..."

"On the day of America’s biggest game, more than 300 churches will tackle one of America’s biggest problems by observing National Porn Sunday on Feb. 6."

There's the problem. They think they can only celebrate it once per year. No wonder they don't like it.

Seriously though, hopefully everyone that wants to go has a ride. Have lots of fun and then yell some about sinners. Best of luck!

If you want me to come, you'll need to be handling deadly serpents. Southerners expect a little more circus with their bread.

Here's an idea, maybe you can hook up with the phelps clan and so like a anti-gay-porn extravaganza. You know what god thinks of those homosexuals. If he hates porn like he hates men that do naughty things together, he will have to super-hate it when they are combined. We aren't talking about chocolate and peanut butter here.

OTOH, according to the official rules of the intenet,

Rule 34. There is porn of it, no exception. Rule 35. If no porn is found at the moment, it will be made.

we could be talking about peanut butter cup porn right now and you wouldn't know it.

"Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011, 9:30 a.m."

Either I've lost my mind or I gotta think up a time machine. Six of one...

riverdrifter 5 years, 10 months ago

Just wondering if Feb. 6, 2011 porn has been improved by now.

I'd really like to see a Adult movie theater come to Lawrence sometime soon. I'll be buying season tickets. lol

The first amendment protects people making porn as well as ministers lamenting it's errosive qualities. God Bless America!! And I do love my Haagen Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream :-)
