The Dangers of Pornography

The Dangers of Pornography


How bad is pornography? Do you still think it’s harmless entertainment and for men only?  Listen as Fr. Chris Metropulos speaks with  Dr. Peter Kleponis, a Licensed Clinical Therapist and Assistant Director of Comprehensive Counseling Services, and the Director of Clinical Programs for Integrity Restored.  You will be surprised to hear what science has proven and who is vulnerable to pornography.   This program speaks frankly on the topic of pornography, sex and addiction. Please use caution.  

But first, we have a conversation Mary Evelyn Smith, an elementary school librarian and blogger. Mary Evelyn offers insight to being the mom of a child with special needs. Her blog, What Do You Do, Dear?, shares her experience and positive outlook on life.  She also participated in FAITHTREE‘s  webinar on Removing Barriers.
