4. XXXChurch.com: ‘Every Time you Masturbate, God Kills a Kitten’


Okay, so XXXChurch.com doesn’t really think every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten, but that doesn’t mean it approves of the act. The organization made the video to get its message across that masturbation is a selfish act.

“Our stance is simply this: you want to live a life that is honoring to God? Then start pleasing Him and stop pleasing yourself,” a statement on the organization’s website says. “Stop making excuses and get some control over your life. Yes, it is tough. Yes, we know hormones are raging. However, God is calling us to holiness. Live an extraordinary life. Masturbation will leave you hanging every time! It is a selfish act that pleases no one but you. God created sex to be between a man and his wife. Not a man and his girlfriend and not a man or woman with himself or herself.”
