More disturbing is the fact the data appears to be consistent with other “gay enclaves” throughout the nation.
Despite these facts, that threaten us all – the culture pushes forward with the legalization of Homosexual marriages. It is all an illusion. In a culture of “open heterosexual marriages” we see no risk in “open homosexual marriages.” But multiple sexual partners of homosexual men are key in the proliferation of HIV and AIDS. Somehow we think by domesticating gay marriage these behavior patterns will change.
Sin can never be tamed! The whole culture is deluded.
In some places the problem is beyond multiple sexual partners. It involves anonymous sex. Unprotected sex. And intimate exchanges with men who don’t disclose their infections and others who don’t ask. This is sexual addiction. It is a blinding and driving force. It knows no such reason. It can embrace no boundaries. The only “safe sex” is in the context of a sanctified marriage between a man and a woman.
Such ideas now seem that they belong in another century. We have lost the nation – on our watch. Only a great awakening can now save us.
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY INCREASES
Of even greater concern is the increasing predatory sexual crimes on children. A recent child pornography bust uncovered 26,500 users from 166 nations. 745 computers were seized along with 35,000 CD’s and almost 6,000 videos. In one scene, a 4-month old child was the victim of sexual assault. After the bust, the number of child-porn websites actually increased – by 64%. The staggering fact is, half those sites are in the US, according to the United Kingdom’s National Criminal Intelligence Service. The international nature of the internet allows hosting in one place, staging in another, uploads from anywhere – it makes it difficult to enforce child protection laws.
The FEMALE PORNOGRAPHY PROBLEM
Most of the information about the pornography problem relates to men. Now, Today’s Christian Women released a study that found that 34% of those responding to a poll, females, had intentionally accessed internet pornography. Some say they went to the site to see if they could understand what was drawing their husbands to such images. Others admitted a personal thrill out of the images themselves.
Some women have made the jump from romantic novels, so popular, to visual images. Some are driven by loneliness. Others by a lack of intimacy in their marriages. Traditionally, women have been more comfortable in on-line chat rooms where language has lacked boundaries. Now, they appear to be surfing both – looking for explicit language and images. As with men, women who view such images tend to act them out. Sin is always first a thought that longs to find expression in action.
Christian counselors say the church is not prepared to handle the increase in sexual addiction and experimentation problems with women either in the church or the culture. Ministries such as Pure Life Ministries (800-635-1866; http://www.purelifeministries.org/) and Setting Captives Free (http://www.settingcaptivesfree.com/) have experience with these issues.
