O They Will Know We Are Christians…

posted by on August 26 at 14:54 PM

…by our porn addictions, and our clumsy, emotionally manipulative efforts to cover them up.

The disgraced pastor at the centre of a fake cancer scandal has spoken for the first time about his “secret life of sin.” … The statement was read to a packed congregation at a pentecostal church his father, Danny Guglielmucci, founded - Edge Church International at Reynella.

Mr Guglielmucci says the reason behind his fictitious cancer story was to hide his 16-year obsession with pornography. “It is with much pain and sadness that I make this statement today,” he said in the statement. “For over 16 years I have struggled with an addition to adult pornography as a result of this secret life of sin my body would often breakdown.”

Everything gives you cancer—except porn. That just causes your body to “break down.” Some porn addicts may find their bodies breaking down two or three times in a single night.

Actually, even if it sounds strange, if it gets you (male) to masturbate, it can probably help you avoid certain cancers.

Especially when you're very young (say around 16 to 29).

Science is wonderful. Christians ... well, ye shall know them by their actions ...

Back off, Savage.

You never know--maybe he was a POW, or something.

That last sentence is a disaster anyway (is this really what the link said? Guess I should check) but I especially like "adult pornography." I guess people--particularly pastors--have to specify these days.

"addition?" Is he saying that he added something to the world of adult pornography?

Did it occur to anyone else that his odd inclusion of "adult" is indicative of a deeper child-porn issue?

Pornography addiction?

Yeah, I need to kick that one myself... Right after I quit the slow-carb foods high in fiber and unsaturated fats, regular exercise, and frequent enjoyment of my s.o.'s sweet, sweet ass.

I see Dan Savage is off his medications again....either that or he's become a "holier than thou" gay man (no pun intended) since adopting children. We have his "type" in California, too.

What a fucking freak. Boo hoo, you're a piece of shit who lied to his family and the world about your 'terminal cancer'...which apprently went on for 7 years? Um, ok. Then you blame PORN of all things! Horny hypochondriac freak.

How can you tell the difference between looking at porn, and being addicted? What is the litmus test? How much porn is too much porn?
