‘Jesus loves porn stars’ turns out to be a tough slogan to sell

JesuslovespornstarsThere are many possible interpretations of the phrase “Jesus loves porn stars.” What it means to Craig Gross and Mike Foster, two pastors who run an anti-pornography online ministry, is that Jesus may not love what porn stars do for a living, but He loves them anyway. (It does not—repeat, does not—mean Jesus loves porn. Quite the contrary. “Jesus is not OK with it,” Gross says.) Gross and Foster hope to save a few porn stars from their work by handing out Bibles at adult-industry events. Still, despite their best intentions, their order of 10,000 Bibles featuring the “Jesus loves porn stars” line on the cover has been rejected by the American Bible Society. ABS (like most of America, probably) believes the slogan would be “misleading and inappropriate” for the Bible.
