Happy Sunday. I thought it a good idea to post a short sermon (11 minutes). You can read something else while you listen. It is heartbreaking, the addiction to pornography. The good of the Net but Pornography is a sin of the Internet, one of them.

I guess we should be emulating all the Islamic countries who
have similar laws? I mean after all they are so successful due
to such policies why wouldn't we want to do that?

Religion would have us as slaves, to mate when they desire
and act as they desire, what a shame so many good folks think
this malarkey is true.

11 minutes, no, my fault, the sermon is 34 minutes long. The 11 minutes refers to the file size.

No coincidences, the priests are anonymous but I recognize this priest's voice. He gives the most powerful sermons! It is worth it to listen all the way through.

Flee from the sin of pornography. Pray for God's help to be pure, we're surrounded by filth.

At the end of the homily, Father quotes St. Alphonsus Ligouri on impurity. I don't think the exact quote is posted below but you'll understand.


..."Behold, the four gates by which the greater number of souls enter Hell; and it is of these four that I mean to speak today, in order that you may amend and cure yourselves of these four vices, otherwise God will cure you of them, but by your own destruction.

Hell's Widest Gate: Impurity

We have now to speak of the fourth gate of Hell, which is impurity [sexual sins], and it is by this gate that the greater number of the damned enter. Some will say that it is a trifling sin. Is it a trifling sin? It is a mortal sin. St. Antoninus writes that such is the nauseousness of this sin that the devils themselves cannot endure it.

Moreover, the Doctors of the Church say that certain demons, who have been superior to the rest, remembering their ancient dignity, disdain tempting to so loathsome a sin. Consider then how disgusting he must be to God, who, like a dog, is ever returning to his vomit, or wallowing like a pig in the stinking mire of this accursed vice (2 Pet 2.22).

The impure say, moreover, "God has compassion on us who are subject to this vice, because He knows that we are flesh." What do you say? God has compassion on this vice? But you must know that the most horrible chastisements with which God has ever visited the earth have been drawn down by this vice. St. Jerome says that this is the only sin of which we read that it caused God to repent of having made man, for all flesh had become corrupted (Gen 6.6-12). And so it is, St. Jerome says, that there is no sin which God punishes so rigorously, even upon earth, as this. He once sent fire from Heaven upon five cities, and consumed all their inhabitants for this sin (Sodom and Gomorrah,Gen 18-19)."...

"Sin' aside ....
(since people can't agree on what is 'sin' and what isn't .. it isn't worth the argument)

Pornography can be addicting and can be dangerous.
The chemical effects on the body are like a drug. If people 'indulge' they
need to be aware that they really can become addicted.

Pornography Addiction

A study found that 17% of people who viewed pornography on the Internet met criteria for problematic sexual compulsivity. A survey found that 20–60% of a sample of college-age males who use pornography found it to be problematic. Research on Internet addiction disorder indicates rates may range from 1.5 to 8.2% in Europeans and Americans. Internet pornography users are included in Internet users, and Internet pornography has been shown to be the Internet activity most likely to lead to compulsive disorders

Porn addiction is not in the DSM-V as a disorder. But the anecdotal evidence suggests that it should be.

Pornography Addiction Leads to Same Brain Activity as Alcoholism or Drug Abuse

eople who are addicted to pornography show similar brain activity to alcoholics or drug addicts, a study has revealed.

MRI scans of test subjects who admitted to compulsive pornography use showed that the reward centres of the brain reacted to seeing explicit material in the same way as an alcoholic’s might on seeing a drinks advert.

Porn Addiction Destroys Relationships

The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity estimates that 6 to 8 percent of Americans - or 18 million to 24 million people - are sex addicts. And 70 percent of sex addicts report having a problem with online sexual behavior.

"Sex addiction is an acting-out symptom," explains marriage and family therapist Jason Saffer, co-director of the Center for Creative Growth in Berkeley and a specialist in treating sex addiction. "It allows a person to mood-alter away from emotional pain that resides deep inside. In treating addiction, we have to stop the unhealthy behavior, but then do the work to find out what the underlying emotional pain is."

If people want to escape feelings of low self-esteem, shame, isolation or the pressures of life, work or relationships, pornography is a place to get lost and feel wanted, imagining the perfect partners who always desires them - and whom they can always satisfy.

No coincidence, I just heard from my family this afternoon...

Our son is away at school. attending the university. He is writing an article for the university paper on
Porn and its harm. High School and college are the years to find yourself, rebel, he does NOT have the same views of the world as I do. He is liberal.

...of all the subjects to write about.

I am sending the audio homily to him, especially to hear the first part about our generals and Israel's
military using porn to subvert the youth in Iraq, Iran and the Palestinian youth.
