"Some people think we are porno-fying the church"

The billboards — one of which features a man in jeans and T-shirt, his tattooed arms holding the legs of a woman who has her arms around his neck, and her legs wrapped around his waist — are to advertise a series the church is doing about sex, and how married couples should be having more of it, so they will avoid being tempted into sin…

Mooneyham indicated that in a poll on the church’s website, 86 percent of the respondents said they were not having enough sex in their marriage.

“This is really one of the major issues that’s ripping marriages apart. They are at a higher risk of adultery, looking at pornography — that leads to divorce,” Mooneyham said.
