The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Also, look what else they put in this p0rno filth - it's not just women(and men) showing their naked body, but there's also at least some violence, as well as other graphic stuff they put in there.

No, I'm not trying to imply people stripping naked ALONE is less bad or anything, but in these p0rn products, they will just combine EVERYTHING into it. For example, in the Hugh Heffner magazines, they have cartoons, pictures, et al of people shooting guns, blood coming out, among other graphic things.(Chris Pinto did a film on Alfred Kinsey and his "sex revolution" exposing alot of this)

When you have ALL of this filth in the person's head watching it...it pretty much brings him in MAJOR bondange. With all that other stuff they put in, wouldn't surprise me if the bondage of fear is in them majorly as well.

Sex Addiction: Are Pastors More Vulnerable to Sexual Temptation?

Although no one is immune to sexual temptation, a pastor leading an online pornography addiction recovery ministry says that church leaders may be especially vulnerable to sexually moral failure.

Pastor Jeff Fisher, whose past secret addiction to pornography was discovered while pastoring a church in the Northeast several years ago, recently had his thoughts on the struggles church leadership might face in this area published on Pastors.com.

Fisher and his wife, Marsha, have shared their road to recovery individually and in their marriage along with resources for others struggling with pornography addiction on their Website, PorntoPurity.com.

In his post, "5 Reasons Ministers are (More) Vulnerable to Sexual Temptation," he writes: "Let me start off by saying, no one is immune to sexual temptation. It doesn't matter what your job is, how old you are, or how much time you spend with Jesus each day."

"We all have the potential to fall sexually," he continues. "Even ministers… and maybe, especially ministers. Ministers have jobs that automatically put them in a pressure cooker."

These Two Traps Are Absolutely Destroying The Next Generation Of Young Men In America

Have you ever noticed that our young girls seem to be far ahead of our young boys and that our young women seem to be much more "together" than our young men are?  Have you ever noticed how many young American men almost seem like zombies and find even the most basic human interactions extremely awkward?  Well, this didn't happen by accident.  Researchers are finding that there are two traps in particular that are absolutely destroying the next generation of young men in America.  One is video game addiction and the other is pornography.  In the old days, the parks and ball fields of America would be flooded with young boys after school was done for the day, but now our parks and our ball fields are very quiet.  So where did all the boys go?  Well, they are all sitting at home staring into computer screens.  Yes, there are also young girls and young women that are addicted to these things, but the truth is that these addictions are far more prevalent among young men.  Unfortunately, it is not going to be easy to reverse the damage that is being done to the next generation of young men in America, and that is very frightening.

These days, most parents don't consider video game addiction to be a major crisis.  Many parents are just glad to have something that will keep their children occupied and out of their hair.

But the truth is that video game addiction is very serious.  One study discovered that 88 percent of all Americans between the ages of 8 and 18 play video games, and that approximately four times as many boys are addicted to video games as girls are.

If you are raising boys right now you probably know exactly what I am talking about.  Most boys are absolutely obsessed with video games these days.

Trust me, I know.

I was one of them.

When I was a young man I would play video games for endless hours.

I would often spend entire days playing games like Starcraft and John Madden football.

Once in a while I would stay up all night playing video games.

I was really, really good at them but the rest of my life suffered.

Not that there is anything fundamentally wrong with video games.  They can be a lot of fun, but when it becomes an addiction that can be extremely damaging.

Today, the average boy spends 13 hours every single week playing video games.

That is an astounding number.

Unfortunately, the second trap that we are going to talk about is almost certainly doing even more damage to our young men.

The Internet has improved our lives in a lot of ways, but one of the very negative things that it has done is that it has unleashed a giant flood of filth into our homes.

Our young men have more access to sexual content than ever before, and this is having some horrific consequences.

The following example comes from a recent Daily Mail article....

A boy of 12 who raped a nine-year-old girl after watching hard-core pornography online was spared jail yesterday as his lawyer warned of a generation of children growing up with a ‘skewed view’ on sex.

The schoolboy, who is now 14, told police he had raped the little girl because he wanted to ‘feel grown up’ after watching **** online.

In a disturbing case that has raised fresh concerns about the sexualisation of children, the teenager had unrestricted access to the web and was able to freely look at sexually explicit material.
Sadly, the United States is the pornography capital of the world.  An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to pornography websites, and the U.S. produces more pornography than any other nation has in the history of the world.

Many American men are so addicted to it that they cannot even wait to get home to look at it.  One survey discovered that 25 percent of all employees that have Internet access in America visit sex websites while they are at work.

In a recent article for CNN, psychologist Philip Zimbardo and Nikita Duncan discussed some of the consequences that this obsession with video games and pornography is having on our society....

The consequences could be dramatic: The excessive use of video games and online **** in pursuit of the next thing is creating a generation of risk-averse guys who are unable (and unwilling) to navigate the complexities and risks inherent to real-life relationships, school and employment.

Stories about this degeneration are rampant: In 2005, Seungseob Lee, a South Korean man, went into cardiac arrest after playing "StarCraft" for nearly 50 continuous hours. In 2009, MTV's "True Life" highlighted the story of a man named Adam whose wife kicked him out of their home -- they have four kids together -- because he couldn't stop watching ****.

Norwegian mass murder suspect Anders Behring Breivik reported during his trial that he prepared his mind and body for his marksman-focused shooting of 77 people by playing "World of Warcraft" for a year and then "Call of Duty" for 16 hours a day.
Zimbardo and Duncan have written a new book entitled "The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Are Struggling And What We Can Do About It" in which they present some absolutely startling research.  A recent Business Insider article summarized some of the key points from the book....

-In 2011, young men's SAT scores were the worst they had been in 40 years.

-Even Hollywood has caught on: films like Failure to Launch, Knocked Up and Jackass mock the ineptitude of this generation.

-Boys account for 70 percent of D's and F's given at school.

-Research shows guys aren't interested in being husbands, fathers or the head of the household.

-Boys are four to five times more likely than girls to have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Two-thirds of students in special education programs are guys.

-The average boy spends 13 hours a week playing video games. The average girl spends 5. The average young American will spend 10,000 hours playing video games by age 21. That's twice the time it takes to earn a bachelor's degree.

-The average high school boy spends two hours watching **** every week. Men can't escape ****: 13,500 full-length commercial **** films were released in 2011, compared with 600 Hollywood films.

-Researchers claim that internet pornography is hurting young boys' ability to form meaningful romantic relationships because they objectify their partner.

-It's predicted that 60 percent of bachelor's degrees will go to women by 2016.
Are you starting to get the picture?

Clearly something has gone very, very wrong.

When these sex-obsessed boys grow up, they become sex-obsessed men.

Just check out what ABC News discovered was going on over at the SEC....

One senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington spent up to eight hours a day accessing Internet ****, according to the report, which has yet to be released. When he filled all the space on his government computer with pornographic images, he downloaded more to CDs and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices.

An SEC accountant attempted to access **** websites 1,800 times in a two-week period and had 600 pornographic images on her computer hard drive.

Another SEC accountant used his SEC-issued computer to upload his own sexually explicit videos onto **** websites he joined.

And another SEC accountant attempted to access **** sites 16,000 times in a single month.
Those that are chosen to work at the SEC are supposed to be among our finest young men and women.

So if this kind of thing is going on over at the SEC, what is happening in the rest of society?

And just look at the U.S. Secret Service.  It made global headlines recently when it was discovered that a whole bunch of agents were consorting with prostitutes.

We are very, very messed up as a nation.

And we now have an entire generation of young men that don't know how to act like men.

In fact, we are rapidly becoming a nation of slobs that do not even have the capability of handling adult responsibilities.

Sadly, at this point young men in the 25 to 34 age bracket are nearly twice as likely to live with their parents as young women the same age are....

The number of adult children who live with their parents, especially young males, has soared since the economy started heading south. Among males age 25 to 34, 19% live with their parents today, a 5 percentage point increase from 2005, according to Census data released Thursday. Meanwhile, 10% of women in that age group live at home, up from 8% six years ago.
So what can be done to fix this?

Well, unfortunately there is not an easy solution to this problem.

How in the world are we going to convince millions upon millions of young men to spend less time playing video games and watching pornography?

Sadly, the truth is that this problem is getting a little bit worse every single day.

So we are headed for big, big trouble as a nation.

What are your thoughts on all of this?  Please feel free to post a comment with your opinion below....

One more thing - it's also been a big problem with pastors and deacons in our modern-day "church". The modern-day "church" uses NIVs. The NIV is from Rupert Murdoch's Zonderdan. Murdoch has set up p0rn media outlets.

Also, too bad our good 'ole public school systems aren't educating our youth on this.

7th-graders suspended over in-class p0rn

A family advocate says an incident involving p0rnography at a California middle school shows how entrenched the p0rn culture is in society.

Nine seventh-graders were suspended from Bell Middle School last month after watching pornography in class on cell phones. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the incident at the Paradise Hills school started as a "sexual-orientation test created by students."
 
According to written statements, the all-boys English class watched videos in class, and whoever became "aroused" was labeled "gay." Students said they were asked if they passed the "gay test" before they were handed cell phones to watch the video.
 
Dr. Scott Lively of Defend the Family says the incident is a disturbing sign of the times.
 
"This is an example of the p0rn culture that all of our kids are now immersed in," he tells OneNewsNow. "And [it's also an example of] the extent to which the gay ethic of sexual freedom, which is really sexual anarchy, has infected the generation.
 
" ... Unfortunately this story is not unique -- it's happening all across America and it's getting worse every day," Lively concludes.
 
The written testimonials also said that children openly engaged in sexual activities in the classroom while the teacher did nothing to stop or prevent it. The Union-Tibune reports the teacher, Ed Johnson, is still employed and does not face changes to his schedule.

Online Campaign Educates on Harm of P0rnography


Morality in Media (MIM) is directing a massive collaborative project, hosting 30 free online events designed to help individuals understand and battle the many harms of p0rnography during the 25th annual White Ribbon Against P0rnography Week, Oct. 28 through Nov. 4.

“America is suffering an untreated pandemic of harm from p0rnography,” said Dawn Hawkins, executive director of MIM. “It is destroying families and is the main contributor to the sexual exploitation of women and children. P0rnography is also the gateway to the sex industry. The harm of p0rnography now touches every American family and Morality in Media is determined that this harm must end.”

Morality in Media has been the national sponsor of WRAP since its creation in 1987, though until last year all events were held in local communities and no events were held online. Many key victories against pornography have been won with the encouragement of this effort. By incorporating the power of the Internet into this tradition, more victories are expected as the reach of WRAP extends online to hundreds of thousands across the U.S. and across the globe.

“Last year we reached hundreds of thousands of people in 81 countries with dozens of online events,” said Hawkins.

This year’s WRAP week campaign will involve more than 100 groups nationwide and include presentations by ex-p0rn stars, a neurosurgeon, filtering companies, scholars, therapists, Internet safety experts, religious leaders and law enforcement.

“We also partnered with top filtering software companies Net Nanny and Covenant Eyes to provide free and discounted subscriptions to software to help protect families,” explained Hawkins.

Most events will be streamed on MIM’s Facebook page of over 115,000 fans: Facebook.com/pornharms. Find a full listing of events on MIM’s website, P0rnHarms.com/beaware. “We will be streaming films about the links between p0rn and human trafficking, discussions with past p0rn performers, help understanding p0rnography addiction and steps to help keep children safe.”

The Addiction No One Wants to Talk About

 Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once famously wrote that while “hard-core pornography” is hard to define, “I know it when I see it.” Most of us would agree.

But what about addiction to pornography? Can we know this when we see it? For years people have debated whether we can actually become addicted to pornography. Yet the effects of sexual addiction — defined as “obsessive sexual behavior regardless of the growing negative consequences for the person or their relationships” — are hard to miss.

According to Patrick Carnes of the Gratitude Program at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Mississippi, perhaps eight percent of adult men and three percent of adult women become sexually addicted at some point in their lives, and many of them become addicted through pornography.

For those who demand detailed, scientific evidence of a malady we see every day, well, now we have it. Cambridge University scientists say that compulsive **** users show the same kind of changes to the structure of their brains as those addicted to alcohol or drugs.

Lead scientist Valerie Voon says, “We found greater activity in an area of the brain called the ventral striatum, which is a reward center, involved in processing reward, motivation and pleasure.”

“When an alcoholic sees an ad for a drink,” she continues, “their brain will light up in a certain way and they will be stimulated in a certain way. We are seeing this same kind of activity in users of pornography.”

Of course, friends, we’ve known for years about the harmful effects of pornography, which is a demonic twisting of our natural, God-given desire for physical intimacy. For example, in their book entitled Hooked, Drs. Joe McIlhaney, Jr. and Freda McKissic Bush describe how pornography and promiscuity change the physical structure and chemistry of our brains, damaging our ability to love, bond and engage in a sexual relationship with our husband or wife.

Now that Cambridge has given its imprimatur to this kind of research, perhaps we can actually start talking about stemming the filthy tide of pornography in this country, a tide that is engulfing men and women, marriages, and families. As we’ve mentioned on BreakPoint, some European governments are beginning to take steps to rein in pornography. And if they can, we can.

But what about those who are already ensnared in this evil? Is there any hope? Absolutely. Josh McDowell Ministry runs a website called “Just 1 Click Away,” with all kinds of resources and help. The Brushfires Foundation, which I’ve talked about on BreakPoint, is another exciting new ministry with the mission to help people find and live out God’s design for sexuality and relationships, and to equip transformed people to spark change by serving others — especially those impacted by sexual brokenness.

Meanwhile, the Gratitude Program I mentioned a moment ago offers a 45-day intensive treatment regimen for sexual addiction and sexual trauma.

You might want to find out from your pastor whether your church or one in your area offers a support group.

And there are other reputable ministries, too. If you come to BreakPoint.org and click on this commentary, we’ll link you to them.

Yes, we now have scientific proof, if we needed it, of **** addiction. But the cure cannot be merely scientific. Our Christian worldview reminds us that humans are created in the image of God. He is the ultimate source and satisfaction of our longings. And when we turn to Him, we will be on the road to seeing our lives, even our sexual lives, mended for His glory.

p0rnography Addiction a Growing Problem Among Women

"It was an ordinary weekday morning when Caroline first noticed how much p0rnography was taking over her life. With 15 minutes to go before she was due to leave for a job interview, she opened up her laptop to print off an extra copy of her C.V. and there, onscreen, was a grab she'd saved from [a p0rn site].

“'I remember the feeling of being sucked in, really wanting that two-minute fix, that numbness I got when I used p0rn,' says Caroline. 'I was stressed out, and I risked being late for my interview, but I pressed play anyway and fast-forwarded it to the bit I wanted. It took two minutes. ... Afterwards I just hated myself for giving in and getting off on images that treated women like pieces of meat. But I kept going back.'”

Those are the opening paragraphs of a story from The Guardian called “Why More and More Women Are Using p0rnography.” Revelations of female p0rn addiction are an eye-opening issue. Most people assume the problem is exclusive to testosterone-driven men. But a new study reveals that women are struggling with graphic sexual immorality in droves.

According to an October report from the Pew Research Center, 12 percent of U.S. adults who use the Internet admitted to watching “adult videos.” Twenty-five percent of them were male, and 8 percent were female.

Whether or not those numbers are accurate—it’s likely that many p0rn watchers didn’t admit it—they are rising. In 2007, only 6 percent admitted to watching adult videos. That means the overall rate has doubled in just six years.

But get this: Online p0rn viewership has quadrupled for women in just three years. A 2010 Pew report shows only 2 percent of women admitted to watching online p0rn. And again, it’s likely that the true numbers are even greater.

And that’s not the worst of it. CovenantEyes has gathered shocking statistics from various studies. Here are a few of them:
•According to a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Research, about half (49 percent) of young adult women agree that viewing p0rnography is an acceptable way of expressing one’s sexuality.
•Exposures to p0rn during childhood are not just brief glimpses. Some teen girls are viewing online p0rnography for a half-hour or more at a time, and 1 in 7 have done this on multiple occasions.
•Of the women in the Dirty Girls community, 87 percent say they feel or have felt “out of control” when it comes to the matter of p0rn; 70 percent say the same about sexual fantasies, according to Dirty Girls Ministries.
•Of the women in the Dirty Girls community, 45 percent said they started “habitually and compulsively” watching p0rnography or engaging in cybersex when they were 13-17 years old.
•Of the women in the Dirty Girls community, 27 percent say they feel or have felt “out of control” when it comes to sexually chatting online; 11 percent say the same thing about sexting.

What’s going on here? A principality known as Jezebel is spreading its immoral agenda into the mainstream. In Revelation 2:20, Jesus warned us of this wicked spirit and its doctrine: “Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.”

The spirit of Jezebel has a stronghold in this nation. You can trace back this seducing spirit to all manner of immorality and idolatry, including p0rnography. And Jezebel’s doctrine excuses the sin, making it socially acceptable to engage in sexually immoral acts (like viewing p0rnography) and eventually trapping women (and men) in bondage to their own lust full appetites.

But there is hope. Although much attention is focused on helping men break free from p0rnography addictions, ministries are rising up to help women find deliverance from this bondage. Beggar’s Daughter, Bethesda Workshops and Dirty Girls Ministries, among others, are offering God’s grace to women trapped in sexual sin. If you or a woman you know is addicted to p0rnography, I urge you to seek help. Jesus is your deliverer, and He won’t leave you trapped in Jezebel’s clutches.

Studying Scripture makes viewing p0rnography less likely

A Bible-based research and development organization says the same technology that has brought society destructive things such as p0rnography and violent video games can also be used to uplift and encourage.

The Center for Bible Engagement found that teenage boys average 10,000 hours a week playing video games as well as viewing p0rnographic material 55 to 60 times during a week.

Dr. Arnie Cole, CEO of Back to the Bible, contends that the rise of the Internet has made p0rnography more easily accessible.

"I'm 62; when I was a boy, a person had to steal a magazine from the liquor store [to view p0rnography], and it was really a big deal," says Cole. "So, you go from that to now – it's just a click away."

Cole finds that as teenagers become young adults they bring with them a distorted view of sexuality and, psychologically, often treat people as objects.

In a recent study from the Center for Bible Engagement (CBE), a man is 59% less likely to view p0rnography if he is regularly involved with studying scripture. The center has developed an app called goTandem to help encourage people in their daily walk with Christ.

Cole says adding accountability lowers that risk even more.

"What we try to do is to send Scripture with app messages throughout their day that help them grow spiritually," Cole says. "So, if a young person is struggling with p0rnography, worry or anxiety, the app will send out these little messages."

And this is why more and more modern-day pastors/deacons are hooked on p0rn - b/c they are reading the wrong bible versions, so they have a wet noodle arm as a defense.

With that being said - the flesh wars against the Spirit - but yes, I myself have found my fleshly desires to calm down when I read scripture.

Studying Scripture makes viewing p0rnography less likely

A Bible-based research and development organization says the same technology that has brought society destructive things such as p0rnography and violent video games can also be used to uplift and encourage.

The Center for Bible Engagement found that teenage boys average 10,000 hours a week playing video games as well as viewing p0rnographic material 55 to 60 times during a week.

Dr. Arnie Cole, CEO of Back to the Bible, contends that the rise of the Internet has made p0rnography more easily accessible.

"I'm 62; when I was a boy, a person had to steal a magazine from the liquor store [to view p0rnography], and it was really a big deal," says Cole. "So, you go from that to now – it's just a click away."

P0rnography’s Stunning Impact Visualized in a Single Infographic — and What Happened When Some Chose to Give It Up

Christian leaders and churches have been issuing dire warnings about the dangers of p0rn addiction for quite some time. While many of these critiques have been faith-based in nature, a new study and an accompanying infographic provide a statistical look at the impact of Internet p0rn — and the potential benefits that could come from giving it up.

Compiled by Project Know, an alcohol and substance abuse program, the analysis is stunning. The group notes that p0rnography, by its very design, “poses significant risk of addiction” and is “the perfect trap for the human sex drive.”
 
At the center of the research is the notion that Internet p0rn carries with it some unpalatable consequences. From having an impact on personal relationships to creating sexual dysfunction, the results are widespread and diverse.
 
“Online p0rn is so stimulating, it can make existing sexual relationships seem inadequate in comparison, and the quality of p0rn addicts’ relationships — and lives — may suffer as a result,” reads a primer from the group.
 
The explanation adds, “The endless stimulus of p0rn has a real impact. Today, 42% of male college students report that they regularly visit p0rn sites, one in five feel controlled by their own sexual desires, and 12% of them spend 5 or more hours watching internet p0rn every week.”
 
In analyzing a group of Reddit users known as NoFap – a collective of individuals who avoid p0rn and, as a result, are attempting to no longer look at Internet p0rnography — Project Know explored a segment of the group’s demographics, the consequences for their actions and the benefits they experienced by giving up p0rn.

NoFap, if you’re unfamiliar, includes tens of thousands of members who are giving up p0rn and are coming together to encourage one another, as they believe that p0rn addiction — or the mere presence of p0rn in their lives — has had negative consequences, ranging from an impact on their sex lives to increased social anxiety.
 
In surveying 603 of these individuals, Project Know found some fascinating results. Among them:
 •35 percent of NoFap participants said they felt a “surge” of energy just one or two weeks after quitting p0rn
 •30 percent reported a “flatlining” or adjustment of their libido to a normal level after abstaining for weeks
 •60 percent felt that sexual dysfunctions had improved after partaking in NoFap
 •56 percent said they had a better handle on strengths and weaknesses
 •67 percent said they were more energetic and productive upon quitting p0rn
