This video contains a statistic at 1:00 that is interesting:
25 million Americans visit porn sites one to ten hours per week, and another 4 million in excess of 11 hours per week. 57% of attendees at a Promise Keepers event admitted to visiting a porn site in the prior week. According to pastors, pornography is the number one issue faced by their congregations. 33% of pastors say they have visited a porn site, and 18% of these said they did it more than once in a week. For every 10 men in church, 5 are struggling with pornography. That’s 50%. 20% of churchgoing women are struggling with the same issue.
If “57% of attendees at a Promise Keepers event admitted to visiting a porn site in the prior week”, exactly what promise are they keeping?
Contrast that with the earlier fact: “25 million Americans visit porn sites one to ten hours per week”. That’s about 10% of American adults. People who go to church seem to be outpacing the general population by a factor of 5.
Advice for women looking to get laid – forget the bars. Go to church.
