Both are supposedly sins, because after creating the universe in all it's unimaginable size and complexity the most important thing for God to concern Himself with is the specifics of our sex lives.

So it is based on 2000 logic that is no longer applicable.

Its not so much of a problem with porn as everyone just ignores them but this effect has a far darker side in other areas of religious belief.

For me thats one of the most dangerous sides of religion, the ability to take popular thinking from hundreds/thousands of years ago and have it be used now.

Take homosexuality and homophobia as a perfect example. Religion didn't start the persecution of homosexuals, as far as I'm aware, it was how society was 2000 years ago, they really didn't like gays. So religion records its homophobic agenda in keeping with the times. Then society progresses, learns that to discriminate against someone based on sexuality is wrong and eventually moves to give homosexuals equal rights. But religion cannot progress along with society as doctrine is set in stone. So religion continues to adhere to a 2000 year old zeitgeist and tries to ensure the rest of society does as well, therefore stunting our progress and dragging us back 2000 years.

Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
