- #1 CHRISTIAN PORN SITE:

OK NOW this is disturbing, BUT not for the reasons you're thinking right now. You are thinking that the title of this post is even something I would be hesitant to make a joke about... but I just saw this site that a friend sent me. You have to first check it out and then come back to read the rest of this:

www.xxxchurch.com

After you've checked it out and realize it isn't a joke (which took me awhile to figure out) I got really pissed and wrote this letter to them. If they respond to me I will post their response. Enjoy:


I don't really know where to start. I have to say right off the bat I am appalled by your site and what you guys are trying to do.

At first I thought wow this is a great gag, until I started reading further into it and watching an interview of you both and realized this isn't a joke.

I will compliment you that it is an approach I have never seen. Two young hip looking guys coming with a different angle for the same old god fearing message. Your message is that porn and masturbation is wrong and sinful.

Basically you are hoping that two twenty something guys with an mtv style can teach "shame" better than the old foggies who preach in church every Sunday.

The reason I am so scared is because I think you are on to something. It is so sad to think that you might be able to get through to these kids and make them be ashamed of sex/masturbation/erotica for the rest of their lives, obviously like the two of you have. Do you also teach them that they are sinning if they are gay? How can you promote this stuff and sleep at night? Well if you really are going 40 nights w/o jerking off, I doubt you're going to be sleeping much at all.

Even if you disagree with me on what I'm saying, you have to think about the fact that shame is a powerful tool for controlling people. Actually it is one of the most effective ways to govern or rule over people. Look at how effective the Catholic Church by using it.

If you try to tell me you aren't teaching shame then what point are you trying to get across? Can you explain to me exactly what is wrong with masturbation? Is it really clearly written in the bible? Who decided that it was a sin? You think that the apostles didn't get off once in awhile?

Well good luck with the whole thing. I hope you started before the movie Dogma too, otherwise you are just ripping off a joke by Kevin Smith, especially with the Jesus action figure. I mean seriously.

Please respond to me as I am interested in what you have to say.

For the meantime I'm going to go whack off in my bathtub while crying hysterically saying, "Oh Lord, king of kings please allow me into the heavens.. I swear I was only reading it for the articles!"

I agree with most of your points, but I have to say you went a bit far with the Apostle comment and the bathtub scene. Otherwise, damn you make a morning cup of coffee more interesting!

I could see how the apostle comment could get under even a less than moderate christian's skin... blasphemy they would say... it's a fine line and I personally have trouble drawing it between presenting in a comical way rationale against religion and blasphemy to where people who follow a religion might get angry... i didn't think the bathtub comment was too bad ... i think the person who wrote the other comment needs to get the rubbermaid broomstick out of their bathtub sized arse...

The guys at XXXChurch are teaching LOVE not shame. They are teaching people, especially those in the porn industry, that Jesus loves them. If you knew someone loved you even in your sin, wouldn't you want to know more about them? I would! I'd want to know how to have a relationship with that person.

As far as who defines "sin," that would be like, duh, God! True, He doesn't specifically say that masturbation is wrong, but He does say that sex outside of marriage is wrong, homosexuality is wrong, and pornography is wrong. Masturbation gets old quick and most often leads to one of those sins. So, that is quite likely why XXXChurch recommends against it. BTW, even *IF* the apostlesa did that, it doesn't make it right...they sinned just like you & me.

Just an FYI: God does not change His ideas about sin based on society. People are to follow Him, not the other way around. Also, if He did change His ideas, we couldn't trust Him because we'd never be sure what He defined as "truth." As it stands, truth is truth no matter what you or I belieee. Water is wet even if I don't believe it is or want it to be.
