Small Problem? – 

MAY 2, 2020 – Oh, and he claims that if you were to “print out the data” from just one porn site (which he doesn’t want to name!), you’d have

“…enough pornographic materials to fill the Empire State Building every single day for a year.”

What kind of metric is that? (And print out what? A list of available photos and videos? Screenshots? Every frame in every dirty video on offer?)

It’s like religion itself, apparently. Once you’ve willed yourself to just have faith, you can toss around all the twaddle you want. Most people on the receiving end will stay silent for one of two reasons: because it’s not “polite” to challenge another person’s religion-based convictions, or because they hope that slowly backing away and ignoring the crazy guy is most likely to get him off their backs.

The whole notion of porn (or sex) causing addiction is pretty much hogwash. Since a lot of people, with excellent justification, see addicts as patients rather than sinners, it’s tempting for an incorrigible Christian masturbator to don the mantle of porn addiction, rather than to say, “You know, I just really love to spank the monkey.” These habitual hand-jivers with guilt complexes can now medicalize their behavior and claim that it’s a condition. Better to be a victim than a pervert, I suppose; perverts get no sympathy and very little forgiveness, and addicts just might.
