HIV is Godís Curse Upon the Porn Industry
The Christian Diarist ^ | August 24, 2013 | JP

Posted on 08/24/2013 1:01:42 PM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

“Cameron Bay” got a shout-out this week from the Almighty. He reminded the 28-year-old porn actress that His Word does not return void. That, truly, “the wages of sin is death.”

Miss Bay confirmed this past Wednesday that she was tested for HIV and found positive. She said yesterday she’s “still coming to terms” with her test result.

Well, here are the terms: When you sell your body (and soul) to the devil, as the porn actress did, you have hell to pay. And not only in this life, cursed with a preventable, incurable disease, but also in the afterlife, where you have condemned yourself to eternal separation from God.

Miss Bay’s positive HIV test should be a warning to other young women caught up in the so-called “adult entertainment” industry: Get out before it’s too late. Seek help from a faith-based organization, like the Pink Cross Foundation..

Founded five years ago by Shelley Lubben, a former porn actress, a born-again Christian, Pink Cross stands in the gap by offering support to tortured souls trying to free themselves from the porn business.

Among other loving kindnesses, Pink Cross sends recovering “adult entertainers” care packages with gift cards for local grocery and department stores, as well as Bibles, Christian literature, praise and worship music, and other items to help them to get through what they’re going through.

Not surprisingly, Shelley has found herself under attack by Satan’s imps, who control the porn business, who exploit young women like Miss Bay until they are all used up.

Indeed, in 2011, Shelley was the subject of a hateful “documentary,” which was perversely titled “The Devil and Shelley Lubben,” and which was produced by porn industry hack Michael Whiteacre, who has disparaged the Pink Cross founder as “a diseased animal.”

Whiteacre is a particularly vocal member of the disingenuously-named Free Speech Foundation, the porn industry trade association, which announced this past Wednesday that adult film sets would shut down temporarily as the industry seeks to contain the fallout from Miss Bay’s positive HIV test.

The Free Speech Foundation’s duplicity is evidenced by its continued protest, rather than acceptance, of last week’s federal district court ruling upholding a recently-enacted Los Angeles law requiring that porn actors use condoms while performing their on screen sex acts.

The porn industry trade association asserts that porn actors have a constitutional right – no kidding – to forgo condoms, no matter the risk of having unprotected sex with so many partners (as the gay community discovered during the height of the AIDS crisis).

Clearly, the porn industry couldn’t care less about the health and well-being of its actresses and actors. That is, so long as their dangerous sex does not cause an HIV epidemic that leads to a moratorium on adult film production, costing porn companies their lucre.

I pray Cameron Bay contacts Pink Cross. Or that the faith-based group reaches out to the involuntarily-retired porn actress. Because Shelley Lubben has Good News to share with Miss Bay:

The porn actress need not live in shame for contracting HIV. She need not live in regret for the poor decisions she has made in her young life. She can enjoy the peace of God that passes all understanding.

All she has to do is give her life to Christ. For the Word promises there is “no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

It’s God curse upon the wicked Sodomy & Gonorrhoea lifestyle of the Godless. They don’t have to be in porn to be cursed as such.

How does one contract HIV by watching porn? Oops.

There's a huge cost to watching porn, and it has nothing at all to do with HIV.

Yep, its the soul

Remember the curse is not on people it is on the lifestyle and the behavior and the spirit of those who get into it and stuff

In a different life, I routinely watched porn, thinking nothing of it. But I no longer see through a glass drakly. I recognize that those of us who watch porn support an industry that defiles young women. If we count ourselves Christ followers we should desist.

Watching porn destroys one’s soul. Porn is all about lust, not love! Lust and love are most certainly NOT the same thing. Porn destroys families, children and parents. It destroys love and trust within the family, hardening hearts and singeing souls, potentially trapping porn watchers in the depth of sin and cutting them off from God, ultimately the Deciever’s objective.

God created sex as an amazingly pleasurable act between MARRIED COUPLES, where LOVE is the motivation. Sex outside of marriage (be it physical adultery or watching porn) slowly, though sometimes quickly, sears and destroys one’s soul. Please, research the phrase ‘soul tie’. Also, check out some of the ‘Links’ to sermons on my profile page.

I learned something when I was overseas on Guam back in the mid to late 1980's. I was in the Air Force and I attended a church off the base. A very godly woman once told me something I have never forgotten.

A + B = C.

Attitude + Behavior = Consequence

I don't know if I go so far to say that a particular disease is God's judgment upon the porn industry, or anyone in particular for that matter.

What I would say is that the effects of sin is the consequence of their attitudes against a holy and just God, just as sin is in the lives of each and every one of us.

Sin is all around us. It's the consequence of Adam and Eve's disobedience in the Garden of Eden. It permeates our very existence. The entire world feels the effects of it. Even if this young lady comes to grip with the magnitude of what she has done and how her attitude and behavior have resulted in her acquiring this dreadful disease, she will still have to deal with the consequences.

I hope my point has not been lost on anyone. We all have to be mindful of that formula and never forget it's lesson. Bad attitude and/or bad behavior will result in bad consequences, but good attitude AND behavior will result in good consequences.

But until we get to glory, let's not say that a particular disease is "God's judgment" upon the porn industry until we hear it from God Almighty Himself.

Me too, back when the internet was new. Now, I just find it pedantic, repetitive and boring. A real waste of time.

**And not only in this life, cursed with a preventable, incurable disease, but also in the afterlife, where you have condemned yourself to eternal separation from God.**

Unless she repents, goes to Confession, and amends her ways, thus forgiven by God.

Words of absolution said by the priest:

enter the Table of Contents of the Catechism of the Catholic Church here
1449 The formula of absolution used in the Latin Church expresses the essential elements of this sacrament: the Father of mercies is the source of all forgiveness. He effects the reconciliation of sinners through the Passover of his Son and the gift of his Spirit, through the prayer and ministry of the Church:
God, the Father of mercies,
through the death and the resurrection of his Son
has reconciled the world to himself
and sent the Holy Spirit among us
for the forgiveness of sins;
through the ministry of the Church
may God give you pardon and peace,
and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

HIV is God’s Curse Upon the Porn Industry

I could've sworn that Louis Ferrakhan claimed that the CIA developed it to kill blacks. Now it only strikes porn stars, hmmm.

There are most certainly consequences from lifestyle choices, but doing porn DOES NOT condemn one to hell.

Rejecting the saving grace of Jesus Christ condemns one to hell.

This young woman might still come to know and trust in Jesus and the angels will rejoice the same as they do anyone else.

I do not assign credit or blame for disease to God. Saying that it is within God is one thing, asserting that he rewards or punishes with it is something else indeed.

It is called Vanity. Taking on oneself the authority to define God. It is the greatest of sins.

HIV-infected porn star had sex with actor who days later had sex with Sydney Leathers in her debut movie Weiner And Me

God did not create HIV. And He rarely uses disease to punish the sinful (which includes all of us). But when a community shakes its fist at the Almighty, like the porn community, He very well may use disease (or pestilence)to punish the defiant sinners.

From 2004 to 2012 there were no cases of HIV infection contracted on the set of porn productions. All pornographic actors are required to log all of their sexual activities, including with whom, and have been since 2000. Since that time, virtually all HIV infections happened due to private sexual activities.

All active actors are now tested at 30 day intervals, and positive test results lead to all sexual contacts for the last three to six months being contacted and re-tested.

The bottom line is that the tiny number of the thousands of active pornographic actors, who have contracted HIV, is a tiny fraction of a percent; far lower than for the population as a whole.

Black Americans represent about 14% of the US population, but account for almost half of HIV infections.

Therefore God must be angry at black Americans. Or just maybe it would be vanity for us to assert so.

Please do not blame God for the sinful behavior of fools.

AIDS is the result of years of abuse of recreational drugs, particularly “poppers.” Funny thing about destroying your body with drugs: More drugs can’t save you from the consequences of your actions.

Yehova’s retribution is automatic; you do it to yourself!

True!

And “HIV” is nothing but a contrived cash cow for the pharmaceutical poison industry, and the Med Mafia.

Justice is when we get what we deserve.
Mercy is when we don't get what we deserve.

The good news is that God's mercy is renewed daily.

I am in agreement with everything you said. And yes, I know about soul ties (and how to break them).

My point is that it screams ignorance to point at HIV and cite it as evidence that God is cursing someone while completely ignoring the mindset that feeds off it. Sex was given to us by God as part of the marriage covenant. We are the ones who screwed that up - not God.

Death is the result of the fall of Adam and Eve to sin. Before that event, death did not exist.

HIV is a bad one, but with the advances in the cocktail mix, nobody seems to die of it anymore. Maybe long term they do, but Magic looks well.

This is kind of a silly claim, given that the Porn industry has been extremely pro-active regarding STDs. They test constantly, and shut down whenever there is a single positive. Sex workers are probably some of the safest people around who have more than one sex partner.

Sigh. Attributing such as “God’s Curse” is not much different than those who misquote the Bible to try to justify their own brand of evil. If it is “God’s Curse”, then one must also consider that all the straight and unsuspecting folks who get HIV because of an errant partner are also under the curse.

As in Pharoah’s Egypt. And Sodom and Gommorah.

And yes, indeeed, there are some blameless individuals who contracted HIV through aboslutely no fault of their own. But the vast majority of the HIV positive – including homosexuals and porn actors – contracted the dread disease through promiscuous sex.

That can be viewed as a curse.

So there is a “God’s hate” hierarchy. In order:

1) Homosexuals and IV drug users.
2) Black people.
3) The general population.
4) Porn actors.
