Characters ☆ The Dirty Little Secret Uncovering the Truth Behind Porn õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Craig Gross Addiction to pornography has exploded to epidemic proportions infiltrating churches and holding our pastors friends and family members prisoner But no one not even the church is talking about this dangerous and destructive addiction The Dirty Little Secret follows Pastor Craig Gross as he breaks the silence and begins his mi. Each year I try to read at least one book from the perspective of the enemy I got this one for free so I figured I would give it a shot One of the featured statements in a lot of the reviews of this book is how it is non judgmental This is a rather funny claim since the very basis of this book is judgement Yeah the author talks the usual line of rubbish that Christians love essentially a variation of love the sinner hate the sin but behind it all is a veritable ark load of judgmental assumptions Sex is bad except where sanctioned by the church within a proper marriage masturbation is bad fornication is bad non vanilla sex is bad fetishes are bad homosexuality is bad etc etc Of course the denial of these underlying assumption come fast and furious but let s pull a few points straight from the bookFrom the very beginning of the story comes this revealing bit At first however we only had two words on our website Porn Sucks Put aside how unintentionally humorous the phrasing is and it should be clear there is a fundamental unuestioning assumption nay judgement revealed that underlays the entire endeavor From this point on everything about Gross and his ministry is cherry picking and confirmation bias Next up I love people and see pornography as a deadly threat to the individual which again shows the foundational judgement going on These are pretty strong words that might come as a surprise to the millions of people who enjoy porn and continue to have completely normal lives without dying from it Odd that Another gem is this one Can you be a pornaholic We knew the answer was an overwhelming yes which again reveals the nature of his unuestioning assumptions There is no actual search for truth in this book It is a grab bag of unualified unsupported claims confirmation bias and anecdote The book contains extensive claims about porn and pre marital sex and masturbation and sexual thoughts being an addiction but absolutely none of these claims are backed up by any kind of serious evidence scholarly or otherwise It s a balls out assertion which will of course be accepted immediately by most readers of this book but there is no proof Normal human behavior is defined as deviant and harmful and then when people behave in completely normal ways out comes the judgement stick with the word addiction stamped onA substantial message of this book is guilt Over and over people express guilt about their interest in porn Never is there the slightest thought that maybe it would be good to get rid of the guilt instead Women are marginalized as weak foul temptresses and of course there is a fundamental buy in into the sexist idea of female purity Single people are marginalized because sex is only supposed to be for the married people with the intent to have childrenThere are so many problems with this book that I could probably write a book in response but I m going to cut this short maybe to return with additional comments laterBut one last thing I m used to reading non fiction books that feature extensive references and bibliographies This book has exactly 7 references including an anonymous posting on craigslist which is laughably bad Five of the references are clearly biased including one sub titled How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future The final reference is to an article from LA Times which in fact does not provide a scrap of evidence for Gross s claims and in fact has this to say about porn If it s corrupting them the data don t yet show it Yellow Brick War usual line of rubbish that Christians love essentially
