I hate Porn

Pornography is a problem.

Porn is like a narcotic, it hijacks the brain, it redefines human sexuality, and in the meantime ruins lives, destroys families, and destabilizes ministries. And honestly it’s a problem that makes me tired — tired of the devastation Satan is causing to children, women, families, pastors, churches, and the world with this tragic evil.

Porn became a problem for me when I was only six, and by the grace of God that problem ended when Jesus saved me at age seventeen. But I know it rarely happens so cleanly. It is still a temptation, yes; temptation abounds living in the city I do, and with the heart I have, but grace abounds all the more in Jesus Christ.

Friends, I hate porn. And here’s why.

I think its great that you can date a young female

that wasn't what I was even trying to comment on. I have zero issue nor care as to what age woman you are dating. I was simply saying that IF the women ( under 25 as you put it ) are too wild for you then go for someone closer to your age.

Now with your response I am confused at what you were even griping at LOL.

More power to you brother and all the ladies your lady brings home.

its the observation...

that counts.

I mean it. I didn't set out to meet young women.. I was just on the market too and ended up dating a few. Im still shocked at the level of freaky chit younger women are into these days. It sure as hell aint like how I grew up.

No offense taken and my apologies for being a dick.

Dating 25 year olds is "practically dating teenagers"?

I guess dating teenagers is practically dating children, and dating children is practically dating babies!

Reminds me of Family Guy: "60 dollars!?...that's almost 80 dollars!"

I think you missed my point

This guy is mad about how wild these under 25 year olds are, just saying he should find someone more his AGE and maybe they wouldn't act so young if that is how he sees them.

I think an under 25 year old is much closer to 8-TEEN than it is to 40 but hey thats just me.

I dont know why you ran into a wild tangent over it

dating babies? lol

too funny man

I got your point...

Just making a funny observation.

I don't really have anything

I don't really have anything against porn. I've dabbled from time to time, but only "sensual" or "erotic art". Anything outside those categories is, in my opinion, too violent and not "real" (porn isn't real, obviously, but at least the sensual stuff is "realistic").

The industry itself has its problems, but performing is the choice of the actors and actresses. That being said, not all performers enjoy their work. It's a male-dominated industry and sometimes respect for women is extremely lacking and should change. There are your "poster stars" who live lavishly and are treated well, but I think a lot of small-time performers get the short end of the stick when it comes to work-environments. No "protection", no medical care, violence against them while performing, long hours (multiple scenes per day), and filthy sets.

Don't watch....

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Porn has been around for ages.

During the medieval times, some of the Church officials would read exotic stories, have mistresses, and visit the brothels. Perhaps if the Church would allow it's members to marry they wouldn't have so much conflicts.

On another note the confessing of sins was just a way to control sexuality during the medieval days. Many Churches are just as corrupt as the government or maybe even more. During the crusades, Pope Urban II sent out troops to cleanse the Muslim race from Jerusalem. Of course it had failed, but the the wounds of the past still exist and the war of religion continues on even to today.

The Bible DOES allow men to marry...

The Catholic "church" as you put it, is not Biblical in requiring priests not to marry. Maybe that's why so many priests struggle with their sexuality and end up getting in trouble.

I can't get into it.

I'm not a prude or anything, I just don't like it. Maybe because they always show men in it and that turns me off. I guess I could just go hunt down lesbian porn, but I'm too lazy!

I would rather see artsy-fartsy pics of nudes showing how beautiful women are than porn any day.

Is there really nothing else going on?

I watch porn and I don't think I am evil. Never raped anyone. Never "turned gay" from porn, (as one commentator suggested)If anything, it's increase my and my wife's sex life. That being said, LONG LIVE PORN! (also if you want to get into things being like narcotics, how about religion? Millions of people who all claim to know the right way and are willing to kill and die for it, why? because that's what there parents taught them, or they read it in a book.)

"What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man."

Turned gay..

I'm not saying anyone "turned gay" these are preteen/teenage boys who found sexual outlet with other boys after watching videos. Are they gay now? No clue. I do remember some had girlfriends before and they don't now...

Confess your sins

But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins...

Porn is certainly destructive and parents are so naive today. If your child is on facebook--anything w/ internet, smartphone, ipad, they are involved in porn.

Entreat as a father, as brethren, as mothers, as sisters

"Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity." - 1Ti 5:1&2

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." - 2 Timothy 1:7

Some matters of the mind and heart are hidden, and some made manifest, but good seeds, in good soil, with reasonable care, always yield good fruit that can feed generations to come. With due diligence, stewardship role-modeling, and humble dependence on the spiritual resources which God has made abundantly available; the likelihood of good overcoming evil becomes believable and doable.

Left to our proud selves, seed quality and soil conditions don't seem too important; with weeds robbing what does grow by competing for available light, water, and nourishment. What does survive isn't enjoyed and preserved to pass on to the next generation in any meaningful way. Without family roles honored and preserved, "with all purity", then correction and direction fails to pattern well for those looking to us for hope of something better than what they see others settling for.

Porn, in all its forms, plays on our natural desires for pleasure and intimacy that ought to be celebrated and enjoyed in holy matrimony. When the heart and mind is seduced into feeling dependent on being stimulated by porn, it compromises the way we hold to our core values of faith and family pleasures. That's why so much money and bandwidth is focused on bringing an end to our family nucleus, and all the pleasures that belong therein alone; by tearing those values down and burning them in sacrifice to its idolatry.

"For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God" - 1 Thessalonians 1:9

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

That is another thing I have issue with

So those who have their walk with god will get to confess their sins and 9 out of 10 times they rinse and repeat those sins. That is one of the one things I LOVED when I used to bible thump. If I did something wrong I could pray about it and then feel better about myself just as long as I "truly believed" I wouldn't do that sin again.

How many christians look at porn, get caught by their wife and then pray about it and confess their sins but then find a more secret way to watch their porn? I bet it happens ALOT. And the best part of it is you can then blame the DEVIL on YOUR actions and somehow others within the faith understand it.

I think that is exactly why the mafia LOVED being catholic, a few hail marys and you can go and off some other guy later that night. It gives you peace of mind because you give it up to god or some other idol like his mom.

I sure wish they would open their eyes...

"parents are so naive today. If your child is on facebook--anything w/ internet, smartphone, ipad, they are involved in porn." This is the awful truth.

and before the internet teens found other means

I get the easy access options online but even before the internet there were dirty magazines that they found. Before that there were "suggestive " pictures and before that there was "naked art" because they couldn't actually have real images of the naked folks but as ART it was acceptable.

The internet didn't make the prostitution and kinky orgies happen back in the so called bible times.

Parents can CONTROL their kids and make them do as you tell them all you want but at some point a child does end up growing up and many of their actions are based on how they were raised.

Funny thing is, I was raised in the church and told everything under the sun of what I couldn't do else I would go to hell. What do you think happens when a FREE PERSON with FREE WILL is told his or her whole life what they CAN'T do? Hell, look at the pervert priests and those sworn to never have sex or think about sexuality at all? Whether it comes out in a prayer, comes out by messing with kids or those within their "flock" doesn't really matter BUT the free will of men will come out in one way or another.

I would rather a priest watch porn and get one off every now and again versus being kept from it for 40 years until they snap and start messing with kids. I think they do this terrible act because they HOPE their "stature" and their "word" compared to some kid would somehow trump their sins.

Sex makes the world go round and some do it in freaky ways. I know many christians and religious types who are just so mad at homosexuality and focus on how evil those guys and gals are when all they are doing is what THEY find and feel is right. Why judge what others do in their bedrooms or even online and if we are to judge why not just go to another website or get out of their bedroom lol.

I wasn't talking about you.

And I wasn't judging you. You are free to do as you please - I don't care. I was talking about how clueless most parents are about the cyber world and cyber (and real) culture their kids inhabit. It bears little resemblance to the age of "dirty magazines".

Porn, and Freedom

Porn is a victimless crime. Victimless divert our attention away from the important issues! Leave it behind!

Mark E. Schmidter

ask all the women who are

ask all the women who are raped or the children who get molested if it is a victimless crime.

Seriously?

Please provide some evidence if you want to make that massive leap.

We are talking about PORN not RAPE

There is a difference between porn and the raping of woman and children. Can you really not see a difference?

http://growing-elite-marijuana.com - My site on growing marijuana

well..

some porn IS about different levels of violence towards others.. I don't know how many become interested in acting out in real from watching it on video but my instincts tells me it's not unlikely...and I will go so far as to say it's possible especially if they are unable to find someone to participate willingly?

My main concern is kids and teens being exposed to every kind of kink and act by people out to make $$ before they've had a chance to grow up/firm up their own sexual identity

Garnet

Worrying about other peoples children shouldn't be your concern

Shouldn't it be up to the parents and how they raised THEIR KIDS? You raise your kids as you see fit but to pretend that teenagers and 20 year olds are not sexual curious is laughable. It is what makes this world go round and there are some old cats out there who are trying to make everyone and their sexuality always be looked at as a sin.

If you believe in the jebus story for example, adam himself couldn't even stay away from an APPLE from Eve, we haven't even gotten into how more people were created after that happened lol. They didn't have PORN and they happily figured it out.

If kids are being shown every kind of KINK as you call it, the parents are not doing their job but in the same breath, if these teens/adults find something that they like who am I to tell them what they are doing is wrong.

Do you really think that without porn there wouldn't be freaky acts happening behind closed doors? I just think people who are into crazy stuff will do it whether or not they saw it on tv, internet or what have you. It is in them, something that they like and as long as all of those involved consent to it willingly who I am to judge?

Many religious types judge because their book told them to do so but they are forgetting other parts of that book like, judge not lest you be judged. He who is without sin may cast the first stone and the list of other text that many keep forgetting.

Also I believe it is a personal walk with god that people are supposed to be on while most focus on everyone elses walks while they trip up all the time.

thinking..

I'm really not judging.. Adults can watch porn and do whatever they want with whomever or whatever they want if that's what they want to do.

I just can't bring myself to say the same thing about children. You're right about parents being responsible for raising their children.. at least that used to be true. I see a lot of abdication in that area.

Freedom of choice. If if isnt

Freedom of choice.

If if isnt your thing, dont watch it.

You would think it would be this easy

But the only "group" within the liberty movement who still feel the NEED to tell others how they SHOULD live are the damn religious folks. Irritating if you ask me.

How can you claim to be liberty minded and still have SO MANY issues with how other people choose to live their life? Is it really because you read a book and the book told YOU how to live, act, breath and feel? If that is the case, what does it have to do about others? Did the book tell you to run around and tell others how they might go to hell for not believing your book? How is that our fault lol, its fiction, like santa and the funny thing is MOST so called christians lie to their kids until they are practically teenagers about how santa is real LOL
