    "Why Is the Christian Right Obsessed With Sex Issues?"

    •  The Christian right IS obsessed with sex (none)
      The day after the election, the NY Times ran a column about a couple of young guys trying to address internet porn use among conservative Christians.  They cite a number of like 40% of Christian ministers who are avowedly "porn addicted," and seeking help from software that doesn't just filter porn sites, it reports porn viewing to the guilty Christian's support partner who will sit him/her down for a chat about how Jesus doesn't care for pornography.  Point is, though, they have acknowledged that all these gay sex-obsessed folks are just plain sex-obsessed themselves, and have such a problem with viewing porn (which they consider a sin) that it's infiltrated nearly half the clergy.  Christians, heal thyselves here.  

      Incidentally: why is it that gun enthusiasts have what amounts to a fetishistic, erotic fascination for instruments of death and yet get a free ride without anyone challenging the mental health and stability (and, yes, "moral values") of a group that blatantly eroticizes guns?

        The Mass Psychology of Fascism by Wilhelm Reich and you will have some more insight into them. I'm not saying it's definitive, but it does provide insight.

        fascinating information milton.

        Puts me in mind of Bill O'Reilly. Thesmokinggun was the first pornography I've read in years.

      •  Escorts and dancers.... (none)
        ...I'll just to add an interesting little note to this, being that our PotUS is from the so called "buckle of the Bible belt". LOL....you'd think that NYC, Vegas, LA would be the US center of the most active prostitution, wouldn't you? But wrong you'd be....Texas, espcially Dallas and Houston, are to hooking/dancing what Paris is to clothes. Not far behind....Oklahoma City, Atlanta, etc....! Get the pic?

        The "buckle of the Bible belt" is full of so called conservatives who love nudie bars and working girls.
