Shelley Lubben Says “Porn Harms”

NL- Does Porn Harm? I believe in some cases, girls are harmed because of manipulative scumbags who lure them in and threaten them so they are afraid to get out. Don’t believe me? Read the comment just posted on this story http://www.lukeisback.com/?p=20202  Now this harm can be caused in lots of businesses, not just porn. And the scumbags who commit this are also in all kinds of businesses. Smart adult savvy women who get in any kind of  business will probably do just fine, because they are confident enough to stand up for themselves.  In reality you can get “harmed” (manipulated, threatened) in any business setting. It’s not right, people who do it should be punished. But we can’t close down every business that has these problems. And Porn is not actually what is causing the harm. The harm is caused by the scumbags who commit these crimes. Let me give you one of a million examples.

(from http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=107250)

Bharti, a 15-year-old Hindu girl living in the Lyari area in Karachi, left home for her sewing class last December, never to return. Three days later, her father Narain Das was told she had converted to Islam.

“We were worried stiff when she didn’t come home. I finally found she had been kidnapped by the area constable’s son while she was out to a nearby market to buy trimmings,” 55-year-old Das, a driver who has now lost his job, tells IPS.

“For three days he kept my daughter; I don’t know what he did to her during captivity. Then he proclaimed she had consented to marry him.”

So here is proof that a scumbag held a child captive and forced her to convert to a different religion. Did he cause harm? He certainly did. Should we outlaw all religions? (I probably shouldn’t answer that question, lol) So who wants to do a forum/chat on how religion harms and what we can do to stop it? LMK I’m game.

Of course whether you agree with Shelley or not, and these days I don’t, her’s is sure to be a lively debate.

**Organized by The Pink Cross Foundation
 
Garrett and Shelley Lubben were married on Valentines Day, 1995. The two most incompatible people found love and overcame pornography, drug addiction, sexual trauma, mental illness, loss of children and more.  
 
Seventeen years later they are happily married today and extremely proud parents of three beautiful daughters. Their testimony is powerful: Garrett was a pastor’s son who felt a call from God to marry Shelley, a porn star and prostitute.
 
Though Shelley’s recovery took eight hard years, Garrett says, “Shelley was worth it!” Both very in love, they now reach out to couples offering real life skills to being and staying happily married. Shelley and Garrett have a passion to stop the growing divorce rate and help people to stay married no matter what. “God hates divorce and so do we!”  
 
Garrett and Shelley are currently attending school full time to pursue their Masters degrees in Christian Counseling in hopes to open up a counseling center to help marriages overcome pornography and other marital issues. “There is Love after porn and we’re proof of the Power of love!”
