Unhappy Dead Porn Stars

Greetings to all..

I was going to post this video in a different thread, but I think starting a new thread on this topic is more appropriate.

I am against pornography for a huge number of reasons: it can be highly addictive, it exploits women and men, it gives people unrealistic expectations about sexuality, it promotes unnatural sexual desires and acts, it causes spiritual damage, it can severely hurt the emotional and moral values of children who are exposed to it, it is frequently violent both overtly and covertly, and the list goes on.

However, I don't condemn those poor souls who find their way into this insidious industry because that vast majority of them came from broken families, and many of them were sexually abused as minors themselves.

I have known people who got into the porn industry. Every single one of them was emotionally traumatized before they went in and those that came out were even worse off.

There is a lot of talk amongst our brothers and sisters of the Faith that these people are evil. But they are not. They are children of God even as we are: children who were led into the darkness and got lost in it.

In my home state of California, there is a Christian organization called Pink Cross Foundation which does outreach to the adult industry, primarily in the Los Angeles area. They created this video showing a number of porn stars who have died between 1989 - 2008.

Most of them committed suicide.

Many of them died from AIDS or drug addiction.

The background song is called "Van Nuys" by Sixx A.M. Van Nuys (and neighboring Tarzana, and Chatsworth) is considered the porn production capitol of the USA.

I've already put this video past Mark (the Admin). It contains no graphic sexual images. All it contains are faces of the people who died.

Every time I watch this it makes me cry.

I think of all these young people who, in their despair, took their own lives because it was the only way they knew to escape the pain they felt.



Please pray for those who are still involved in porn.

Please understand that they are precious children of God who lost their way.

Hate the sin, love the sinner.
