People who identify themselves as very religious and consume porn are more likely to consider themselves as addicted to porn than a non-religious reference group.
However, a survey by covenant eyes in the USA reveals that Fifty percent of Christian men and 20% of Christian women say they are addicted to pornography. And the most popular day of the week for viewing porn is Sunday.
This is however not limited to people outside the church walls or the bodies that inhabit the church pews. The Statistics show that pastors and lay leaders also struggle with keeping their eyes, the lamps of their bodies, pure.
