LOS ANGELES, October 7, 2005 – Hundreds of churches across the US plan to participate in National Porn Sunday, a one-day event designed to start the conversation about the issues surrounding pornography, “America’s ‘dirty little secret,’” according to Porn Sunday creators, xxxchurch.com.
The focus of Porn Sunday is to get churches and pastors talking about the issue of pornography and sexual addictions, according to its founders, California pastors Mike Foster and Craig Gross. The two founded xxxchurch.com in 2002, which they dub “the No. 1 Christian porn site.”
“Churches in the past have been accepting of drug abuse, alcohol abuse and these types of addictions ... but porn in the church is like ... the scarlet letter on you,” said Foster. “We hope it allows people to discuss it in a graceful, non-threatening way.”
Statistics reveal that 40 million people regularly visit internet porn web sites daily, while 47% of Christians said pornography is a major problem in the home; 10% of adults admit to internet sexual addiction – 65% are male, while 35% are female. Porn revenue is larger than all combined revenues of all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises, and exceeds the combined revenues of ABC, CBS, and NBC at $6.2 billion.

Shame on all of you out there who didn't observe national porn sunday this year. Now you're going to burn in heck. When I first saw the title, I thought it was going to be like that national comic day where all the comic stores hand out free comics. I can just imagine the lines if every single porn shop handed out free porn. Maybe that's an advertising gimmick that would work, though based on the profit numbers there, it seems porn pretty much sells itself.
I'm also sorta surprised that the male-female ratio has dropped to less than 2 to 1. I always assumed it would be higher for some reason, though when I think about all those teenage girls on sissyfight reading and writing incest and harry potter sex stories, I have no clue why. I guess it's due to the fact that the internet is the ultimate brown paper bag and anonymity lets you pretty much do whatever the heck you want.
