On October 9 at 6:30 p.m., “porn pastor” Craig Gross of XXXChurch in Las Vegas and porn king Ron Jeremy debated at the Rock Church in Liberty Station. Pastor Miles McPherson made several comical attempts to spray Jeremy with supposed holy water and forgave him for his racy utterances.

The format allowed each debater to issue a 15-minute introduction before taking questions from audience members. This is where it got juicy: Gross mused that his virginity upon marriage had some effect on his machismo level; Jeremy admitted he might steer his daughter away from a porn career in favor of college first.

Gross reiterated how damaging porn is to the young minds who watch it. Later on in life, said Gross, males have trouble connecting with women as persons because their consumption of porn has debased them to the "humanity of real women."

Jeremy dismissed Gross’s assertion and exclaimed, "Porn is just entertainment." He said people can watch porn responsibly and enjoy it, that it is a business like any other.

An interesting fact that I enjoyed was Jeremy saying that the fastest growing market segment of porn these days is storylines featuring the escapades of “cougars and MILFs” seducing younger men!

The Rock sanctuary was overflowing with rapt listeners. In fact, the interest from the community was so great, some citizens had to be turned away at the door.

Not all of Ron Jeremy's movie roles are pornographic. Check out Ron Jeremy’s first mainstream movie starring role in the epic "Beaches, Buns and Bikinis." An environmental story for our time, Ron easily steps into the role comedian Morey Amsterdam made memorable in "Beach Party." Ron plays a wise old sage running a hot dog stand on the beach who freely dispenses love advice to the young.

Thank you, 3bproducer for that tidbit of info. In fact, one of the questions Ron Jeremy answered last night was: "how did you get into porn?" His answer- he had bit parts and small roles but was having trouble breaking into Hollywood. Ron Jeremy also was a stand-up comic and attested to the fact that it was his despairing over the lack of upward career movement that propelled him into porn. He said that in the 1970's, he posed for Playgirl magazine to get some publicity and instead got his first porn movie invitation instead.

I saw this story covered on channel 6 news, and thought to myself ´Ron Jeremy certainly appears to heve stolen the show.´

How emasculating is that, for a Christian?

What I think about porn is this

I just loved the hell out of pornography when I was tweaking on crystal methedrine. Couldnt get enough of it, and I set some masturbation records while using crystal and watching porn.

I had to leave the crystal alone, to save my soul, not my life. And when the crystal went, so did the porn. True story.

Now I love to drink, but as far as porn goes, I´m like the famous statistic about hotel porn viewers, which claims that the average pay per view porn order in hotel rooms is a little over five minutes. Get your nut and click, turn it off.

I know there are alot of serious porno addicts out there, and they arent even on drugs. What happens is, it takes something a little more freaky every time to fascinate. For example, I read where a porn star was talking about positions, and referred to one where he would hump the female with his foot on her head.

I think part of the fascination with porn is that a man says to himself look at her, shes letting herself be filmed, something thats supposed to be so intimate, and anyone can see. Theres an element of satisfaction in that, for guys that arent exactly getting what they want in their sex life.

Porn demeans women, in my view. How you treat your women says alot about a man. Its said that 10% of the men are getting 90% of the sex. I think its essentially true.

Women are into porn, I think, because its a turn on, and women are sexually repressed. I think they are as horny as men, if not more, but they have to hide it, or at least they choose to hide it.

I remember in my life two occasions when I kissed women and it was so good, I mean so good, that there is no way it could be captured on film. I note that in porn, kissing is rarely seen, and prostitutes dont want to kiss.

The point Im making is that when you´re with the right woman, and shes with the right man, it gets alot better than porno sex. ALOT better.

Theres something animalistic about porn, like with orgies. Sometimes, peopole will do something scandalous, and then never do it again, its out of their system.

The prevalence of pornography on the internet is a poor influence on children and young people, who access it.

What pornographers provide, I speculate, is a way for a horny mind to create a template of doing something dirty, without actually doing it, but it doesnt work. These days, people see it on porn, and are out doing it the next day, if they can.

I doubt any of these points were made in the debate. I wouldnt want any of my loved ones watching porn at a young age, participating in the making of pornography at any age, or condoning pornography in public, much less in a church.

Mindy,

Read your comment, and recall that one porno starlet in said in a porno mag I was reading, when I was on crystal, that Ron Jeremy likes to hit the girls he copulates with, but she told him no, and then he was a puppy. True story.

Pastor Miles McPherson told the Rock Church this past Sunday that the Rock sanctuary attendance for the Porn Debate was 3,000 strong! He said about 1,000 of those there were not Church members but from the community at large. It is unheard of to get that many non-worshipers together in a Church setting-except for maybe a large funeral event. Never underestimate the appeal of porn in a Church setting!

Pastor Miles was very proud that escort workers, porn actors, managers of strip clubs and strippers, gay bookstore owners and others attended the debate. These are exactly the people the Rock Church seeks to do outreach to. God loves every body! That is exactly what my sign said that I held at the Westboro Baptist Church protest at Comic Con. God loves every body! Someday Ron Jeremy will be saved-Pastor Miles & Pastor Craig Gross are hard at work praying for him-no doubt! What a final porn flick that would be-Ron Jeremy's Last Feature Film-where the Great Porn King gives up the nasty and finds God in the process! Hallelujah!
