‘It’s Not Ok’—Pastor Who Left Porn Industry Critiques Dennis Prager’s Views on Pornography

During his six years working in porn, Broome made over 1,000 adult films, was named Top Adult Male Performer of the Year, and earned over $1 million. Now, he shares his story “​​to proclaim God’s glory and to let someone who is hurting know that there is freedom in the name of Jesus.”

Broome said he “can almost understand” where Prager is coming from in justifying porn use as a way of avoiding adultery. However, “it’s not ok,” Broome continued. “It’s not a better substitution. It’s further polluting your heart, and it’s only going to contribute to more depravity. And if it doesn’t lead to adultery today, the data tells us that it’s going to lead to it tomorrow.”

Even if people do not evaluate porn use from a Christian worldview, it is “very clearly not a moral good,” said Broome, who explained that using porn contributes to divorce, sex trafficking, and rape culture.

From a Christian point of view, our human desires are in conflict with how God calls us to live, said Broome, citing Titus 2:11-14 and Galatians 5:22-23. “I’m called to be a living sacrifice,” he said. “I’m not called to give in to my desires.” 

If we don’t fear God, we will “play God” and try to find ways to manage our desires instead of living with self-control. What’s more, Paul says sexual immorality is a sin against our own bodies. “Why would you commit sin to yourself?” asked Broome.
