coming to a seminary near you: the pr0n elephant

Feministing has a riotous post about the big blue porn elephant that's making the church rounds as a way to educate congregations about our christian (i.e., hidden) porn addiction.

heh.

mark your calendars, folks. october 7 is porn sunday.

(and, hey. i got rid of my pr0n, thank you very much. it made me sad.)

Gulp! Why is porn such a BIG issue in churches? People are acting like sex is badddd and they never looked at a naked person before. How many people go to the movies and see people acting out sex? Is it really a addiction? Or, is it sin like all sin? Lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, pride of life...


Something terrible wrong with this thinking. No wonder its getting bad in the CHURCH!

i don't exactly know why pr0n is such a problem in churches (so much so that you need a blue elephant to bring attention to it.)

but does the church have any less problem with other things like anger, pride, lust, greed, sloth, etc? in other words, though it's said the church is meant to be called out from the world, isn't the church really a microcosm of the world?

I so hope I'm preaching on p0rn Sunday! Especially given that the average age of our congregations is about five hundred and twelve.

hey, old people like pr0n, too!
i so want my dad to do a sermon on pr0n for october 7. i wonder if he'll do it.

or post a piece of his website or talk about it on his webcast. that would be awesome. heh.
