The physical dangers of porn

Post by 2bizE » Thu Feb 06, 2020 8:32 pm

Apparently, even the appearance of looking at porn can cause physical harm.

Wow, that is hardcore.

I thought by the title that this would involve some repetitive stress type injury. Nevermind.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

If I'd been drinking when I read that I would have spat out my drink. Well played good sir.

What I don’t understand is why and how could a mother view pornography as being so bad that it would be better her son nearly die than be unclean.

Heber J. Grant
There is no true Latter-day Saint who would not rather bury a son or a daughter than to have him or her lose his or her chastity – realizing that chastity is of more value than anything else in all the world.
David O. McKay
Your virtue is worth more than your life. Please, young folk, preserve your virtue even if you lose your lives.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I know what my mother expects. I know what she's saying in her prayers. She'd rather have me come home dead than unclean.
I'm not saying that you can understand it any better now, but the teachings are pretty clear. The church was pretty consistent in teaching that it is better to have dead children than immoral ones. It's pretty awful. I don't think the church leaders ever meant to say that masturbation is the sin next to murder, but they taught enough that people concluded it was.

I don't know of any teen stupid enough to be sexting and viewing porn while sitting near his mother.

Blazerb, you forgot The Miracle of Forgiveness where it stated that it's better that a female die rather than survive a rape.
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.
