No Porn on Shabbos!

I don’t like porn.

I definitely don’t like porn on Shabbat. It’s not a double mitzvah if you’re doing it with yourself, y’know?pastorxxx.jpg

Turns out, no porn on Shabbat is a philosophy that I share with church-goers. See, Benjamin Edelman, a researcher at Harvard Business School, found that people in states with high percentages of Church-goers–states in the Bible Belt, mostly–tend to subscribe to more online porn services than people in more liberal states, like my own Illinois and New York. But people in those Bible Belt states tend to log on less on Sundays. Apparently, “a 1% increase in a postal code’s religious attendance was associated with a 0.1% drop in subscriptions that day.”

Since Sunday is the Christian Sabbath, I guess there are a lot of church-going Christians abiding by my ‘no porn on Shabbat’ policy. The question is, what do they do on three day yontifs?

    Unfortunately, porn goes beyond just those who worship on Sunday. It crosses all demnominations and cultures. It gives you some idea what level of degradation we, as a society, have evolved into. It has destroyed so many lives and families. How evil is that when something like porn can do such a thing? We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing such an abomination of HaShem to go on as though He thinks it’s wonderful. He hates what it has done to the family He created. We, I hope, will walk away from such a life and choose to follow His mitzvot and truly become the holy people He commanded us to be. Thanks for letting me share.
