Mainstream culture is saturated with pornography. According to Josh McDowell, one in four internet searches is for porn and half of American men are addicted to it. But if you think that means everyone approves of it, think again.
A recent survey found that the vast majority of Americans think watching porn is morally objectionable—even those who do it. But without Christian morality, they have trouble explaining why.
Some like psychotherapist John Woods describes children and teens he’s treated as having a disease that disrupts their lives, even those with convictions for possessing child porn.
Others treat porn as a manifestation of sexism. Feminists have called HBO’s notoriously raunchy “Game of Thrones” series prejudiced because of the sexual violence against women.
But both of these secular objections miss the deeper problem with porn: it turns people into objects and dehumanizes everyone involved. Christians must communicate this fact if we hope to de-saturate our porn-saturated culture. I’m John Stonestreet.
