Not just because pr0n is problematic ethically. That’s the easy answer.
But this is a Christian soldier who made his reputation critiquing the sexual inclinations of others. He is a poster boy for the log-twig reference our jefe made as reported in scripture. Yet another example of someone who protests a bit too much.
Of course, a part of me thinks they should be celebrating. If it’s your average Jenna Jameson flick or Girls Gone Wild clip they could be saying: “Yay. It’s not a tween!” It’s just a priest looking for a little stimulation to take home. It’s just a guy wanting to be double teamed by a blonde and a brunette.
There are a lot of worse fantasies.
But on a church computer? Really?
Was he trying to get caught?
Is he a pervert? Or an idiot?
I wonder if it’s possible to distinguish between pornography and nakedness, critiquing an exploitative industry without condemning our fascination with sex.
He may or may not be a pervert or an addict, but I wonder if a culture of shame tends to exacerbate an obsession with sex rather than develop a healthy understanding of it. Shame is the root of hypocrisy, or the water that feeds it.
