Logic will break your heart

Lately I've been doing a lot of research on XXX Church. They are a client of ours at my new job and it's two young married guys (both pastors) who decided to leave their respected roles and start traveling and preaching on what many consider a taboo subject: Pornography.

They've been trying to bring into the open what most Christians have kept under a heavy blanket for many years. They are not trying to expose people to one another, but they are trying to expose the many risks and dangers of pornography. It's pretty awesome and it's really cool to see the men and women that they've really helped in the past couple of years.

And to top it off they travel to porn shows nationwide with shirts that say "God love pornstars" and banners that say "Do you have the balls to stop looking at porn?" And more than that they have a 40 foot inflatable penis named Wally the Weiner.

It's all really funny, but it truly gets many peoples' attention. And personally I think this is an issue that many Christians have needed help dealing with in the past, but have felt too ashamed to ask question or reveal what they were dealing with.


Now a segue:

Belle and Sebastian will be playing at the Ryman Auditorium in March with The New Pornographers. Hopefully tickets are not too much, because that would be a good show. I could get much Indie cred for going to this one.

You already have street cred, all you really need is Indie cred.
