It sounds a little like a porno title, but it’s not. It’s a true story that was featured in the Examiner this week. This past Sunday, June 10th, Ron Jeremy paid a visit to the Rock Church to be a part of their Exposed series. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a battle or a debate. Instead, it was a a friendly conversation of life’s trials and tribulations and how God comes in to play.

“Pastor Miles has been leading a 7-week series entitled “Exposed”, the focus of which is to expose NOT the failures, weaknesses, and troubles of celebrities (which we see plastered on magazines on a regular basis), but the way we – as Christian believers – respond to their troubles. Are we quick to judge their behavior and count ourselves better than these troubled celebrities, or are we able to recognize the sin in our own lives and instead feel the same love for them that Jesus has shown us?”
Per usual, Ron brought his sense of humor and his harmonica. He played Amazing Grace for the crowd and his hosts, Pastor Miles and Pastor Craig Gross of XXX Church.
“Jokingly, Ron said that one of the things he recommends to others who are also struggling with issues of faith is to pray to Allah, and Moses, and Jesus, and Budha, and anyone else you can think of, just in case… He says, ‘When you die and go to heaven, one of these guys has to be up there.’ He also said that if its Jesus who is in heaven, Ron would ask permission to come back to earth ‘for at least 5 minutes” in order to punch his rabbi who obviously had it all wrong.”
The only issue I have with this article is that they’re still calling porn a “failure” and a “weakness”. They’re not saying that they are cool with porno; they’re saying they understand that sometimes you fuck up in life and you bang on camera. Real nice.
On a serious note, it’s nice to see two ends of life’s spectrum sitting down and having a peaceful and intelligent conversation. Ron Jeremy, way to be the ambassador of grown-upness.
