Enjoyed Mr. Swindle’s post yesterday on Porn vis a vis marriage. Some of the comments, like Mr. Swemson’s and Paardestaart’s, were interesting, too.

Here’s my two cents: Porn should not be regulated by any Governmental body anytime, anywhere, unless it involves minors or non-consenting adults. Those over 18 are free to choose their own poisons and there are lots out there.

But when people blame religious repression for its ugly manifestations (like Mr. Swemson), or say it’s all good and peachy and what’s the big deal? (Like Dr. Helen), they are being just a tad too simplistic for their own good.

Like all human proclivities, it eventually comes down to the person involved. I’m sure marriages have been ruined by a man’s or woman’s incessant “mousing” on porn sites, and I don’t need to conduct a scientific study to know that many who view X-rated videos to the exclusion of other “healthy” activities have a warped view of life and love in general.

A perv is a perv all day long.

That being said, not every celibate person has biological needs that manifest themselves in twisted and abhorrent behavior. I was an altar boy when I was a kid, and went to Catholic school all the way through high school, and was never approached in any inappropriate way by any member of the clergy – nor were any of my friends.

That’s because not every “sex-free” person is a deviant! Some see giving up so basic a human function as the ultimate in self-sacrifice, and many try to channel those drives towards the helping of others – Of course Mother Theresa and Mahatma Gandhi and J.C. himself come to mind, but I knew many in the religious life who gave of themselves in nothing but an absolutely charitable and kind and loving manner – they got their jollies in a different way then Swemson wants to give them credit for.

Again, a perv is a perv…and a weak person is a weak person…deviants can hide in churches and schools and marriages and all kinds of other places, and they can blame whatever or whomever they want for their “uncontrollable urges”…but in the end, it always comes down to:

Free will!

(Such a quaint notion.)
