Porn officially more popular than Jesus.



If you have ever wondered what is wrong with society you need not look further than you local computer. I was curious what things were popular on the Internet which lead me to wonder how Jesus fared among Internet users. I knew that I was going to be disappointed with the answer, but not how completely shocked I would be. I used the site http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/ to check the popular search terms of the day. The site is a popular blogger resource that allows them to target keywords that are being used to increase site traffic.
I started with Jesus. Of the 17,000 results for Jesus about 4,400 were for "Jesus" other results included art and music related searches and the like. I then queried the term "naked" with a staggering 166,300 results. Mostly search terms related to naked celebrities but astonishingly there were 2,561 queries for "naked kids", 1,234 for "naked children", 518 for "kids naked", 447 for "naked kid", 437 for "child naked", numerous others for child stars naked and disturbingly enough 620 for "naked grannies".
I knew at this point I should probably stop before I lost anymore faith in humanity but I could not help myself. I next tried "sex" I was amazed to find that there were 755,733 inquiries. I guess I should not have been surprised. What did sicken me however was the number of references to deviant sex. I noted 7,050 inquiries for "group sex", 5,992 for "public sex", 3,738 for "family sex" more disturbingly I found 2,034 inquiries for "child sex", 588 for "kid sex" and even more disgusting 29 for "young kid sex". I feel sick now.
I thought I would give Internet users one more chance to redeem themselves so I thought I would choose a ubiquitous religious term. I chose "God". That should be a fairly common search term, a chance at redemption, right? Oh how far have we fallen. I was horribly disappointed to find that the total was an anemic 39,572 inquiries and it is worse than it looks. Of those 39,572 about 80% were related to video games and the gods of Greek, Roman and Egyptian myth.
If there was ever a glaring example of what is wrong with society this is it. We have replaced God with porn and I fear that it will be the end of us.

  1. It is a sad day when I no longer allow my children to play outside unless they are secured in a fenced in yard out back. It is due to stories like this that confirm my feelings. I am absolutley terrified for my children's safety in the world we live in today. I hope your post opens the eyes of readers and makes them aware. I know that a utopia is not going to happen but if tougher laws and strict sentincing for sexual based crimes were put into place I would hope that some of these sick Bastards would leave our children alone. I hope for the day when God and Family become more important than porn.
