Catholic websites help those struggling with pornography

Catholic World News - October 19, 2010

The National Catholic Register has drawn attention to two apostolates that seek to assist those struggling with temptations to pornography. Matthew Fradd, who converted to Catholicism after attending World Youth Day in 2000, runs ThePornEffect.com, and the Archdiocese of Kansas City offers a program and a website (LoveIsFaithful.com).

“Every day I wake up and decide what kind of man I want to be,” says Fradd. “Purity is not a destination one arrives at; you don’t wake up one day and say, ‘I’m pure.’ It’s a daily battle.”

53% of men who attended Promise Keepers conferences in 2008 said they had viewed pornography in the previous week. A third of those who regularly visit pornography web sites are women, according to the Register, and 25% of search-engine searches are pornography-related.
