Some Christians Don't Want You to Masturbate

Masturbation is Satan's typewriter
I'm sure there are plenty of Christians out there who are not the least bit concerned about masturbation. Many of them do it themselves and likely take no issue with others doing the same. In essence, these are reasonable Christians. They recognize that it isn't any of their business whether others are masturbating, and they give it little thought.

And yet, it seems like there are more than a few fundamentalist Christians who are convinced that their "god" does not want them or anyone else to masturbate for some reason. Some are even determined to warn others about the imagined "dangers" of masturbation, going out of their way to threaten those who do it with eternal punishment.

I suspect we've all encountered Christians like this. They really seem to enjoy words like "fornication" for some reason. These are the sort of Christians who help to give Christianity a bad name, drive young people away from it, and make it the butt of so many jokes.

I suppose if it wasn't for the fact that our many hang-ups about sex are unhealthy and cause a variety of problems, one could be grateful to these Christians for doing more to undermine fundamentalist Christianity than most atheists will ever do.
