Dennis Taylor reports the alarming fervor of a group of Christian groups who formed prayer rallies in and around Los Angeles against porn and the industry. Even the Playboy Mansion wasn't spared.

There has been a lot of hoopla lately over Pope Benedict XVI stance on condoms. The Pope believes that distributing condoms is not the answer to curbing the spread of HIV in Africa and that it actually may be escalating the problem. He also believes that placing a bible over an erect penis before intercourse is the only guaranteed way to prevent the spread of Aids. What a fucking lunatic!
Protesters in Bali staged a silent demonstration against the Islamic government's newly minted anti-porn legislation that draws a blanket ban over anything 'that incite sexual desire'.

A British chaplain has either gone completely insane or is very bad at telling jokes... The Rev. Peter Mullen wrote on his blog that all gay men should be tattooed with health warnings, such as "Sodomy can seriously damage your health" on the buttocks and "Fellatio kills" on chins.
In one of the sadder crimes against the history of porn, a right wing religious group ceremoniously burned over 100 reels of vintage porn footage from the '70s and '80s. The footage was uncovered when the church bought and renovated an old drive-in theater, and the local fire department (tax dollars?) appeared to lend assistance in delivering the 'holy hose-down' to quell the flames.
For some couples, porn is a great way to stimulate a relationship and bring sexual fantasy into the bedroom in a safe and sane manner. For others, especially those who are from a morally superior Christian background, porn marks "one of the most malignant forms of marital decay in our time", and shows how one couple's sexual remedy can be another's sexual poison.
The religious right has an annoying way of abusing quotations from famous people and turning them around to make a case for outlawing porn.
