Jesus Loves Porn Stars


From politics to porn in one week…only at Stupid Church People.

No doubt you have heard of XXXChurch and the way Craig and Mike over there are making a difference in their little corner of the web. Actually it isn’t such a small corner as these guys have blown up and are doing some very, very innovative ministries within the porn industry. I mean, you can’t get any more “controversial” than showing up at a porn convention in Los Angeles as a Christian and talking with people about Jesus and porn.

So the guys over at XXXChurch have some ideas. First, they are sponsoring National Porn Sunday, which they describe this way: “PornSunday seeks to drive the conversation about pornography in our churches, families and lives. PornSunday wants to bring healing and recovery to those struggling with pornography.”

Second, they have put together an “R-rated” documentary entitled “Missionary Positions” chronicling their ministry and discussing the porn industry, the effects it is having on our culture and their experiences in dealing with “porn people”.

Finally, and probably most adventurous, is a new venture called the “Trinity Project” which they hope to use to assist girls involved in the porn industry with help in getting out. Now this got my attention. The project is based on a girl that they have gotten to know named Trinity who currently works in porn but wants out. The guys are trying to develop assistance and programs to help these girls in tangible ways.

Now while we at SCP have often joked about things of this nature and had some fun with the topic of strippers and stuff, we wholeheartedly support the ministry of XXXChurch. They are doing and talking about things that the church should be involved with in our opinions. They are risking their reputations and ministry careers in serving a population of the world that the church just wants nothing to do with.

With the “Trinity Project”, Craig and Mike have definitely taken XXXChurch to the next level. Here’s a crisp dollar bill for each of you!

  1. i’m still confused about this ‘Jesus loves Porn Stars’ thing…so do you guys refer to the gospels as:MatthewMarkLukeJohn Holmesor what?

  2. I wouldn’t be surprised if the XXX church is Ron Jeremeys creation and He financed it…like big tobacco has anti smoking campaigns…even the 700 club is in on this supporting XXXchurchI rebuked Pat Roberson for supporting this evil…! he is wicked!on 700 club..http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=6873303http://www.alittleleaven.com/2008/01/wally-the-weine.htmlImagine showing up to church next sunday and finding a 30 foot high erect phallus on top of your church or in the church parking lot announcing a sermon series on Pornography. “Absurd and ridiculous”, you say. “No Christian Church or Ministry would ever resort to something as shameful as a giant phallus”, you say. Sadly, you’d be wrong. (Warning: Explicit Link)According to Wally’s Website:Mike and Craig of XXXchurch dreamed up the idea of Wally one afternoon in sunny southern California. XXXchurch exists to bring awareness, openness, accountability and recovery to the church, society and individuals in the issues of pornography and to begin to provide solutions through non-judgmental and creative means.alsothe “way of the master” is against XXX church’s dragging the church down and making it look bad, there is a blog on the way of the master,, radio where they say XXX church is real wrong..they show a video of XXXchurch’s porn puppet and a porn producer Ron Jeremy telling children at a grocery store porn is not for children but is for adults,,, this is abomination check it out.. http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=1389981839&channel=1185329932

  3. New potential XXX Church bumper stickers:“Christians do it in small groups.”“Christians do it with Spirit.”“Christians do it on their knees.”“Christians do it…” Oh, never mind.

  4. hey i just happened upon this site and as one who is addictedd to pornography it is my one fear and my one thing that would ever possibly ruin my relationship with my fiancee. xxxchurch is amazing and while some things may not agree with you they are doing a service that needs to be done. My stepfathers first marriage was ruined by pornography. the truth is that Jesus works in mysterious ways. today i love my stepfather and would never wish that he was not in my life. i just wish that porn did not have an influence on how he got here. i believe that he would be my stepfather no matter what. If you still think that porn is not that bad copy and paste this interview with ted bundy into you r browser http://www.pureintimacy.org/gr/intimacy/understanding/a0000082.cfmPray for me and my struggle

  5. To quickly hit on why porn is wrong, I’ll give you my personal experience… I was addicted to porn, it became a habit, a sick crutch that I fell back on when REAL relationships fell through. It causes both men and women to become unfaithfull to their husbands and wives, and though yes, all parties are consensual, they are not in a committed relationship. Most of us beleive that God created sex for pleasure and for us to share with someone who we are in a committed relationship with. The porn industry does it for profit…and nothing else, there is no higher purpose for porn.My hat goes off to XXChruch, not only for taking risky steps, but for giving me an amazing resource to help me with my own personal addiction to porn.God Bless

  6. I just hate(couch) to correct you guys, but….The entire foundation that you view as “porn is wrong” needs to be examined.You might ask yourself these questions about sex in general…Have you done a though investigation of what the bible actually says about all and any sex/porn values that you have?Have you checked that the translation is right?What are the old testament laws that forbit any sex practices like porn? ect…The entire value system we have as christians comes not from bible study but from rules and regulations handed down by parents and pastors. Funny enough, our parents and pastors got their value systems the same way.So what does God think about porn? Would anyone like to guess, do you actually know, have you done the hard yards of study to know?Have a closer look at the “Song of Songs”…

  7. Agreed. I don’t know why, but XXXchurch has never really weirded me out; I think they’re such a refreshingly unashamed ministry that is really seeking to healthfully provoke and challenge the church to look at this issue. A lot of churches talk about pornography peripherally, and it certainly comes up in most accounterbation – I mean – accountability groups. But really, it’s not being recognized for the influence it has.These guys have a knack for skating the line between challenging and offensive, and I think that’s just what the doctor ordered when it comes to porn. ::Chris::< HREF="http://www.ruinedoforlife.net" REL="nofollow">RuinedForLife.net<>

  8. i’m not talking porn here, not really, but instead i am talking about today’s movie standards, ratings and otherwise, and a certain rating situation for a recent popular movie…here goes:did you know that in movies the name “Jesus Christ” is used as a curse so much that “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST” was almost rated NC17 because of all the “swearing”?well this might not be true but in today’s society Christianity and pornography do run hand in hand, because the media sees anything having to do with Christ the same way as certain Christians see anything to do with porn…that is, both feel that each are wrong and that both should be BANNED altogether…unfortunatly, in today’s society, Christianity will be banned much sooner, if porn ever is (which it never will be)…because this is the devil’s planet, and his country, and his playground: and liberals are the swingsets, jungle-gyms, slides, and monkey bars, baby!(i rule today, forever and always)

  9. Denny,I went to your site and read your posts. We are just going to disagree on this so I am going to let it go for now. I just don’t have the energy this morning. I think the guys at XXXChurch are right on target with their mission and their methods. But I do agree that it is possible for one’s methodology to undermine their message…cause I used to be a Southern Baptist from Texas also. I look forward to continuing this dialogue on both our sites. Take care.Steve

  10. Hey Steve… You think Josh will read this one??Those guys are truly on the edge… dealing with stuff that most christians don’t want to think about.These are the kinds of people Jesus hung out with when He walked the earth. And that’s what these guys are doing! So why does it make me so nervous just to write a blog-response?? Wow!More power to ’em!!!

  11. Yes… in many ways this was for Josh. Maybe he will check my stuff out from time to time…if nothing else but for the pictures!

  12. While we all can appreciate the evangelistic boldness of XXXChurch, that boldness in itself does not justify all their methods. It is possible for one’s methodology to undermine their message. I fear that this has happened to some extent with the XXXChurch. I have three blogs on this at my site: http://dennyburk.blogspot.com.

  13. one more thing about porn and Christianity:one day i am going to make a film about how Satan uses (has used) porn to deprive the young minds of america, and it will be set in the seventies, and the movie will be titled:BOOGIE KNIGHTS IN SATAN’S SERVICE

  14. stumbled across your site while doing research for a sermon this weekend. Tommorrow night actually. Looking for stupid church rules. I’m teaching on galatians 3 and one of the points I’m addressing is legalism (besides faith and grace)I could’nt help but comment on XXX church. Their whole Starving Jesus thing is fantastic. I couldn’t put the book down. More power to em’. Another great read you might like is Jesus In The Margins by Rick McKinley form Imago Dei Church in Portland.
