Like most moral Americans, I am left feeling very self-glad after evaluating myself to Miley Cyrus or Davecat, the 2 most public examples of sexual deviancy after Anthony Weiner. Cyrus, after mimicking sexual intercourse on countrywide tv (which has been dubbed “twerking”) seems nude in her maximum latest tune video, where she sits astride a wrecking ball and makes out with a sledgehammer. Davecat became featured in The Atlantic in advance this year, as he made a completely public apologia for his preferred approach of attaining sexual climax-via the use of two $6,000 silicon sex dolls. At first blush, those examples are incredibly deranged; sexual misfits in a world which knows better than them. But after analyzing The Social Costs of Pornography, posted with the aid of the Witherspoon Institute, my preliminary ease has grew to become bitter.
Before I recount the contents of that e book, allow me address an objection to speaking approximately pornography on a Christian internet site. According to the filtering website online Covenant Eyes, 50% of Christian Men and 20% of Christian girls file being addicted to porn. I enhance this factor due to the fact an smooth cop-out may be made that “Christians aren’t like each person else.” The quantity to which porn influences the culture, which I will define under, does not change whilst we study spiritual or non-religious, Christian or non-Christian. Porn doesn’t discriminate, all of us are victim to it.
