Insane Pastor Claims Masturbation Makes Men Gay
In a frankly hatstand booklet entitled “Porn-Again Christian: A Frank Discussion on Pornography & Masturbation for God’s Men”, a Seattle based, self proclaimed Pastor called Mark Driscoll has made the following claim –
“First, masturbation can be a form of homosexuality because it is a sexual act that does not involve a woman. If a man were to masturbate while engaged in other forms of sexual intimacy with his wife then he would not be doing so in a homosexual way. However, any man who does so without his wife in the room is bordering on homosexual activity, particularly if he’s watching himself in a mirror and being turned on by his own male body.”
I can’t help but feel that Mark has given away, in that last sentence, a little more about his own wanking habits than he probably intended to.
Just how out of touch with reality Driscoll is shows up later on the same page –
“Fourth, masturbation can establish a pattern of laziness. If a single man wants to have an orgasm, he needs to first become a man and undergo the hard work of courting and marrying a woman. If a married man wants to have an orgasm, he needs to first undergo the hard work of loving, leading, and romancing his wife. But, lazy men are prone to rub one out in the shower each morning rather than undergo the labors usually associated with responsible masculine married life.”
Really, the guy is just making shit up. Why are people like Mark and Keith/@GodsWordIsLaw so obsessed with what other people are doing in private?
Funnily enough, whilst putting this post together, Keith tweeted the following –
Brilliant! He and Mark would get on like a house on fire!
Kids, don’t listen to these lunatics, you don’t need to be ashamed of your bodies or entirely natural feelings and desires.
ADDENDUM: Christian bloggers are just as disturbed by these two as I am, read a view from the ‘other side’ here.
