Disordered Appetites

Pornography rapes the mind.

“Internet pornography is the new crack cocaine, leading to addiction, misogyny, pedophilia, boob jobs and erectile dysfunction, according to clinicians and researchers testifying before a Senate committee Thursday [November 18, 2004].” – Internet Porn: Worse Than Crack?

For those who suffer from sexual addictions, I have good news. The Order of the Legion of Saint Michael (home to blogs Bro. Bubba’s Journal and Catholics in the Know) has reopened the Catholic Support Group for Sexual Addiction Recovery. CSGAR “is a Catholic group of fellow sufferers from addition to pornography, lust, and sins of the flesh”.

“CSGSAR is a safe place (as a computer discussion group can be) where people with the common bonds of being Catholic followers of Christ and being fellow sufferers of sexual addictions may share and seek support for our struggles with this addiction. We offer resources for ‘Tips on How to Avoid Sin’, advice and remedies given by the Church and the saints, and the fellowship of fellow sufferers. You are not alone.”
