Well-known evangelist Christine Caine believes the quickest way to put an end to sex trafficking is for people to stop consuming pornography and watching shows like HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
Speaking last week during the “Heaven Come” conference, a worship gathering in Los Angeles, Caine told the audience, “I’ll tell you how to stop human trafficking, sex trafficking overnight: If people stop watching porn. … Just stop it.”
The Australian-based preacher even took a shot at the recently concluded HBO series “Game of Thrones,” according to Fox News, saying, “Here I am trying to put traffickers in jail and you’re watching ‘Game of Thrones,’” referring to the show’s graphic nudity.
Caine’s anti-trafficking ministry, A21, reports a lot of pornographic content is actually the product of some form of sex trafficking.
“Nothing is free,” she said. “Porn costs somebody.”
The 52-year-old minister is certainly preaching an important message. Pornography consumption in the U.S. has reached epidemic levels with some 40 million Americans currently visiting porn sites on a regular basis.
A staggering 28,258 people are consuming explicit content every single second. Furthermore, 35 percent of all internet downloads are related to pornography and new content is uploaded every 39 minutes.
If you or someone you know is struggling to beat sexual sin, Faithwire has created a seven-week, video-based series — Set Free — designed to equip participants with the practical and spiritual tools they need to curb a compulsion to consume pornography.
