    This is terrific. My grandfather used to say that some things are too serious *not* to joke about. “The Analyst” may have to watch his back, but I love how he used his wit as a weapon against this idiocy.

    They’ve been using gay porn as a recruting tool for years. Nothing new here. There was a scene in harold and Maud where the priest gets all hopt and bothered when he tells Harold he’s been thinking of what a young boy’s body might be doing.

    Think of what those ‘mo’s do to each other. Just think about it!!

    and they do.

    Mr. SSSSSSempa is just enjoying a stash of porn that he could not allow himself to enjoy otherwise. I’d love to be the plethistomometer (or whatever it is) in his boxers when he’s delivering one of his rants. except, of cours,e i really wouldn’t.

    A few evangelicals in the US have figured out how to use straight porn (as well as somewhat — but only somewhat — tamer sex advice) to sell religion.

    I won’t link to this site, but Google “Sex in Christ.” That one is perhaps a tad fringe-y, but there are more mainstream examples of the same phenomenon. (Dagmar Herzog discusses the fundamentalist version of sex-positivism in detail in her book, Sex in Crisis.

    As for Ssempa, I’m starting to think of him as Peter LaBarbera’s boyfriend.

    Btw, the review I linked to, perhaps too hastily, is rather unfair to the book, in my opinion. Still, it gives a decent overview.

    Pastor Martin ‘Scatman’ Ssempa, “I’m da Scatman!! Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop!”

    I’ve read the full article. It’s rather wonderful.

    So wait a minute, is heterosexual sex so boring in these heterosexuals lives that they are watching this as an instructional tool to try and improve their sex lives? Try taking a shower first and shaving, that might be better. yes fingers can do wonderful things, if done properly.
