Demons Bothering You? Give Up Sex Toys And Masturbation, Preacher/Author Advises


Ever since Paul wrote his version of Jesus’ gospel, women have been the object of derision and disrespect. Throughout the Middle Ages, women were blamed for pretty much every bad thing that ever happened. The Christian dichotomy of the virgin and whore has colored most of their views on sex. Sadly, enlightenment comes slowly and with much difficulty to patriarchal institutions. This is particularly evident with certain evangelical branches of Christianity.

Mack Major apparently belongs to one of those branches. Or maybe it’s a twig. Whatever it is, in pure Pauline tradition, it is hateful towards women. One post advises women not to take advice from the “wrong kind of women.” That would be those who like being single and those who are happily married (oh, but it’s all a show). Both, according to Major, are “tainted.” These women don’t want “real” women to be happy. So says a man who knows next-to-nothing about women.

But the post that’s making the biggest splash is the one he wrote about masturbation and sex toys.

If you follow the link in that post, it will take you to a pseudo-scholarly page concerning ancient fertility deities and rites. Major writes about the Greek god, Priapus, noting that the people of Pompeii worshiped him and just look what happened to them! Yeah, it couldn’t have had anything to do with volcanism and that big ol’ volcano next door. He goes on to explain that many cultures worshiped the male penis as a fertility object — leaving out its counterpart, of course.

Sex toys have been found in many cultures the world over, Major explains. Some are even life-size! All of them, he misconstrues, were “believed to actually be links and portals of power between spirits and humans.” Um, no. No more so than a crucifix or cross. These objects were viewed as symbols of the fertility the gods could bestow upon humans. To touch them or (yes, sometimes) use them, was to imbue oneself with that power of fertility. Over time, the magical aspect of the symbols was lost. This went hand-in-hand with modern discoveries about human sexuality. We didn’t need the gods to help us out on that one anymore.

But, as all pseudo-Christians do, Major can’t help but to sermonize. The readers of the article (an excerpt, by the way, of a new book he’s flogging) are told that they are sinful:

Many of you who are reading this have sex toys in your possession right now. And whether you want to accept it as fact or not: those sex toys are an open portal between the demonic realm and your own life.

He goes on to state, for a fact sex toys open a “doorway that can allow demons” into your life. These demons torment you and destroy relationships. Aha! Here’s some insight into Major’s twisted view of women. Maybe he was dumped in 8th grade. Maybe he’s not been able to stay in a loving relationship. What better way to save oneself from guilt — or from trying to be a better person — than to blame demons? Another clue about his possible relationship woes:

Some of you weren’t even aware that the person you slept with was an assignment from hell sent to derail your life and cause much personal destruction.

Man. I’ve had a few ugly relationships in my life but I had no idea that those guys had been sent on assignment from Hell. I wonder what the current salary is for derailers? Of course, bad relationships could be caused by poor choices or even, you know, life. As the saying goes; shit happens. But blaming it on demons is no better than the small child who blames it all on his imaginary friend. Oh, right.

Mack Major’s Facebook page is loaded with judgmental posts and thinly veiled ads for his books. If you’re a woman, you will find only subjective, unscientific rants about how sinful you are and, if you’re poor, he doesn’t like you either. Prosperity gospel, eh? That’s pretty telling.

Mr. Major, if he sees this article at all, will roundly condemn me to his Hell (and all of my comrades and readers, too). He will say that I need to repent but what he really means is that I must believe and think as he does. We all must. That’s how people like this are validated. No, thank you. I choose free will. And, possibly, sex toys (but I’m not telling).
