NFL Quarterbacks To Participate in XXX Church Event

1 Feb

NFL Quarterbacks Matt Hasselbeck and Jon Kitna will spend Super Bowl Sunday leading a crusade against internet pornography, as part of a day called “National Porn Sunday.”

They will advocate on behalf of an organization called XXX Church, which pledges to help people dealing with pornography addiction. Hasselbeck swears he has never had a problem with pornography, but has still signed up for the church’s X3watch service.

“If I go to a site that’s questionable, a teammate gets an email and my wife gets an email,” Hasselbeck told CNN. “I thought about adding my mom too but decided against that.”

Pastor Craig Gross runs the program, and says he started the program in early 2000s after meeting dozens of teens dealing with addiction to internet pornography. Through his work, Gross has made efforts to reach out to the pornography community.  He says that the Bible tells him that pornography is a “sexual sin.”

Through his outreach efforts, Gross made an unlikely friend: adult film superstar Ron Jeremy.

“If you’re a really religious Christian and you follow the letter of the law with the bible, you should not watch porn – I agree with Craig on that one,” Jeremy said. “I like what Craig does. He tries to keep people out who don’t belong in porn and don’t belong watching porn. It’s not healthy for them – maybe they’re getting addicted to it.”
