Pornstar Harry Reems lost his life to alcohol and Christian preacher saved him; another preacher crumbled that faith.Reems starred in the Christian based porn epic, Devil in Miss Jones. The plot borrows from Dante Alighieri’s depiction of hell and it probably proved porn is the best medium by which to depict Dante’s vision. Back to Reems and the two preachers; the first preacher cared about souls and the second cared about the collection plate. Atheists love to focus on the televangelists pleading for money through fifty-five minutes of an hour-long show, but the symbol of Christ has saved various types of abusers from spiraling down even further.
Ron Jeremy and the XXXchurch is another interesting story which harkens when Protestant women helped “fallen angels” (prostitutes) start a new life.
The “towers of faith” play a part in the scene I am creating. Faith in doctors is another tower of faith; and in my case, the tower has crumbled. I’m not sure if a bad experiences with psychiatrists helped build the Church of Scientology but they do offer a look at twin towers of differing faith. The Fort Hood shooter makes Tom Cruise’s rant about psychiatry look awfully sane. Roman Catholicism and Islamism cries of heresy make the Space Ghost religion look saner, as well. I’m sorry if my limited research about Scientology caused me to see it as a Space Ghost religion, but the communication about the belief system seems vague.
I used Anais Nin, in a previous post, because her tale involves several towers of trust. Sexual relations with two trust figures, her father and her Freudian psychiatrist, makes Nin’s story fit my analogy.
Putting sex in my Tower of Pride seems logical because of the nature of my main character. Narcissism has many sex related elements.
Reems was Jewish before conversion to Christianity; he was also an US Marine. He filmed the sex scenes for Deep Throat in Florida. Gerard Damiano, director and producer of both porn movies mentioned, had a long history in Florida and died here; which, fits my regional theme.
