Not my porn!

I know this might be old news to some, but another Christian group is trying to invade our privacy with their ineffective vision of morality. This time the focus is on pornography. 

XXXChruch.com (X3) is dedicated to breaking porn addictions, because deep down, we all love to see naked women.

You know, I have this friend....

X3's Mission Statement (pdf) makes for an interesting read. Apparently, porn addiction is not limited to the male of our species.

The problem isn't just for men. From mommies to working women, the ladies are among the top demographic struggling with porn addiction. Perhaps more quiet than the men, but struggling non-the-less. Women are finding it, devouring it, and destroying lives with the dirty little secret. If you are struggling, get help today.

Know you are not alone. Know there are other women who feel and have felt the same way you do right now. Most of all know there are others who have found hope and recovery living pure lives away from porn and sexual sin.

X3 gets Christian hate mail (because they are annoying).

I am sure that your website means well, but what do you think about a young child walking thru a parking lot and seeing a vehicle covered in the words XXX and CHURCH together, you send a mixed message and nobody thinks it is a good plan but you...

Is XXX a word?

In reading their Executive Summary - I found this interesting tidbit. They debate porn star Ron Jeremy.

XXXchurch is on college campuses debating the biggest male porn star in the world, Ron Jeremy. The Ron Jeremy debates are a great way for the message of X3church to hit an audience that embraces porn. In the 2006-2007 school year we anticipate 20 plus dates on different college compuses.

Somebody must have have tapped this. it would be YouTube gold.

They claim 60 million hits - could it be because they are viewed by the typical porn cruiser as the church of sex? I'm willing to bet 60 million hits translates to fewer than 60,000 interested people. The rest hit the back button real fast. Is it just me or does this seem funny in an odd sort of way?

How is it possible that not heard of this before?

Interesting post. The problem is the Christian view of sex. They have an inherent conviction that there is something evil about it unless "sanctified" by marriage.

Sex itself is value neutral. It's what you bring to it that makes it either a good or bad experience. A guilt ridden priest engaging in furtive fellatio of the "our little secret" variety is way more dysfunctional than Ron Jeremy getting it on live with a few hundred willing adult partners.
