‘Epidemic’: Study finds more than half of Christian men look at porn at least once a month

A new study shows that while nearly 40 percent of self-identified Christian men believe they watch “excessive” porn, 64 percent of Christian men watch porn at least once a month.

“What we are seeing can almost be described as epidemic,” said Joel Hesch, the founder of Proven Men Ministries, which sponsored the poll.

“Viewing pornography can quickly turn into a very real addiction. Just like drug or alcohol use, what starts off as a seemingly innocent or fun act can quickly spiral out of control,” says Hesch. “If left unchecked, it will consume your time, energy, and resources. Once hooked, it’s hard to break loose.”

While the group says that further results of the study will be released in coming days, the first portion, released this week, also found that 65 percent of non-Christian men use pornography at least monthly, virtually mirroring the number of Christian men.

Women viewed pornography far less frequently than men, with 15 percent of Christian women and 30 percent of non-Christian women admitting to watching porn at least once a month.

The poll also found that 29 percent of men aged 18 to 30 watch porn daily, as did 21 percent of men aged 31 to 49. Fifty-five percent of married men watched pornography at least once a month, as did 70 percent of unmarried men.

Day Two is now complete. Full rich day with great weather and wonderful spiritual blessings (and great food too!)

Started early with a ride up Mount Tabor to have Mass at the site of the Transfiguration. Then to Cana to renew wedding vows and on to an authentic lunch in Nazareth with mezza salads, chicken skewers and beef kabobs.

The Church of the Annunciation is always a favorite, especially praying the First Joyful Mystery where the words were actually spoken! Then we visit the cave where the Holy Family lived and I gave my talk “A Day in the Life of the Holy Family.”

Swimming in the sea too….     Enjoy!
