The Hardest Battle Ever

I saw this trailer for a Christian movie Every Young Man’s Battle yesterday… (Spoiler: All of you young men out there have to fight the evil, treacherous scourge of pornography.)

Oh man… not BUZZ JUICE! SOMEONE SAVE HIM!

Like the part at 12:42 when a young woman blames herself because “men were stumbling because of some of the things” she was wearing.

Or the part at 43:42 when James Dobson interviews serial killer Ted Bundy. Why? Because porn, that’s why.

“If I were you I would say sayonara,” he recommended. “Leave! It’s okay. You’re not married. Walk away.

If it’s porn, walk away! It’s only gonna get worse!

… which is interesting advice given that, back in May, he told a woman whose husband was actually cheating on her that she should stay with him:
