This post is a continuation of the topic of pornography. Although images have been removed and no foul language is used, the subject matter could incite lust and temptation in individuals.
The purpose of this post is to bring awareness to how far this porn epidemic is spreading into sacred areas for Catholics, Protestants, and even Muslims.
Anyway, if you are like me and want to stay informed about the enemy, Satan, and his latest guerilla warfare tactics, then, by all means, put on your armor of God, take up your shield of faith, and grab your sword of the Spirit and follow me as I follow St. Michael the Archangel into the lungs of hell.
I am really angry right now.
I’m angry with pornography for keeping men and women from God, and I’m angry that I didn’t take action sooner. I’m angry because I knew there were genres and bizarre fetishes out there (After all, I did live in Japan — the land of the bizarre — for almost a decade) and I did nothing about it. Heck, I even gave in and indulged in some of it at one time.
But mostly I’m angry because it has been brought to my attention that there is a genre of porn out there that I had no idea existed.
I really thought I’d seen it all, folks.
Imagine the most perverted, grotesque form of pornography and I’ve seen it (except for child porn — The Lord knows that I am telling the truth). I’m not even going to list any of them because you get the idea.
When some fellow prayer warriors told me about something called blasphemy porn, I thought, How bad could it be? Naked people inside a church building? Topless feminists burning Bibles?
What I glimpsed, Christian, was so disturbing, it would likely have had the same impact as on an atheist being held at gunpoint, forced to watch as his beloved wife and child are sexually assaulted and then murdered.
I didn’t mean to pick on you, atheist friends. I just needed to provide y’all with a reference point as well.
Here we go:
Gosh, on second thought, I really don’t need to describe anything, do I? I mean, the title of this post pretty much says it all.
The first image I saw–
But it’s art!! The woman is merely protesting against centuries of oppression by the Church–
Shut up. Just shut up.
For all of you with that kind of thinking, imagine the dearest person (wife, husband, newborn baby, handicapped child) or thing (American flag, your brand new car) to you. Got the image? OK, now imagine it/her/him being desecrated in some way. Are you a minority? Imagine a racial slur being spray painted on the beautiful house that you worked so hard to purchase. Love Obama? The Queen of England? Imagine their photographs being desecrated in the most abhorrent way.
OK, now we’re all on the same page (I hope).
Unfortunately, Muslims are not immune to this genre of filth either. Did you think the cartoon that depicted Mohammed as a terrorist was blasphemous? Well, that ain’t nothin’.
Believe me, sexually deranged people in cyberspace pick on Islam just as much as they do Christianity. Take my word for it.
My point is this: We Christians and people of faith need to wake up and see that the Devil never ceases blaspheming God. We need to hate him and fight against him with prayer and awareness of this garbage.
It’s freedom of speech, you prudes. Freedom of expression. These aren’t the Dark Ages.
Yeah? Then why don’t you stop the next Hispanic person you see and call him/her a $%!@& w__ b___?
Why don’t you go outside and scream the N-word at the first African American you see?
Why don’t you give me your address and let me come to your door so I can call your loving wife a dirty whore? If you live in Texas like I do, you’ll probably grab your gun and shoot me. If you don’t own a gun, then chances are you’ll get kind of upset.
As Christians, we need to pray for the people who are involved in this blasphemy. Jesus Himself, as he was dying on the cross, cried out, “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34)
We Catholics need to love the people but hate Satan and fight him with much prayer and fasting. In chapter 9, verse 29 of St. Mark’s gospel, Jesus told his disciples that some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting.
Here is what Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary says about Mark 9:29:
But Satan is unwilling to be driven from those that have been long his slaves, and, when he cannot deceive or destroy the sinner, he will cause him all the terror that he can. The disciples must not think to do their work always with the same ease; some services call for more than ordinary pains.
These are blatant attacks by the Devil against our dear faith, brothers and sisters. Let’s get righteously indignant and do something about it.
Well, what can I do? Do you expect me to–
For starters, you can pray. Pray hard. *Then ask God and fellow prayer warriors what to do next.
*No violence, though. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, is the Prince of Peace.
