Pornography Destroys Relationships
Undermines Love, Destroys Marriages

 COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, December 5, 2012--Theology of the Body writer, Christopher West claims that up to 80% of adult Catholic men have used pornography and that up to 40% use it compulsively. Jeff Cavins, author of the Bible study program "The Great Adventure", claims a similar number; worse, he also claims that the wives always know something is wrong in such a marriage.  Even without any 'real' pornography, we are typically exposed to 15-20 sexually suggestive (or worse) situations during every hour of primetime television.

The video below was produced by the Diocese of Colorado Springs and was shown throughout the diocese during Masses. It is based on The Theology of the Body. Parents had the option of taking their children out during the presentation. They and other dioceses around the country have introduced the "My House Mens' Groups" program in parishes to help men who are struggling with the corrosive effects of pornography. We are grateful to Bishop Sheridan and the Colorado Springs Diocese Office of Marriage and Family Life for sharing this with Catholics for the Common Good.
