The Sound of One Hand Praying 

Good news for modern man, courtesy of Zemblan patriot J.M. (and is that cat en fuego today, or what??): born-again Christians are only half as likely to suffer from a debilitating malady that afflicts 40% of secular women and 100% of secular men (excluding, as always, Jake Barnes):
A poll conducted by what bills itself as "the world's most visited Christian website" indicates a surprising number of Christians are addicted to pornography, RAW STORY has learned.

"The poll results indicate that 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography," said Clay Jones, founder and President of Second Glance Ministries.

The group defines "addicted" as applied to pornography as use on an ongoing basis . . . .

Additionally, 60% of the women who answered the survey confessed having "significant struggles with lust." 40% admitted to being "involved in sexual sin" in the past year.

"No one is immunized against the vice-grip clutches of sexual addictive behaviors," reads a release issued by the site. "The people who struggle with the repeated pursuit of sexual gratification include church members, deacons, staff, and yes, even clergy."
We hate to say we told you so, but we predicted as much when born-again candidate Jimmy Carter gave his notorious interview to Playboy back in 1976. "I have committed adultery in my heart" -- some role model!!

And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
-- Genesis 38:9

Go, and do thou likewise.
-- Luke 10:37
UPDATE: And please believe us -- we meant no offense to our good friends and distinguished colleagues at the All Spin Zone!
