QUOTE: “The problem is, most churches have male leadership, and if you want to pitch an event [for women dealing with sexual addiction]… they’ll say, ‘Our women don’t struggle with that.’ This is going to be the next wave, but you’re going to get a lot of blank stares [from male pastors]. ‘Really? Come on, this isn’t a big deal.’”—Craig Gross, founder of XXX Church, speaking to the New York Times about the need for more counseling for women struggling with pornography and sexual addictions. Though many ministries exist to help men with these struggles, few are designed to help the growing number of female pornography users. [nytimes.com, 5/2/10]
