No this is not the beginning of a joke.  This is Nefarious – a word I have recently become all to familiar with. Nefarious:

Origin:
1595–1605; < Latin nefārius  wicked, vile, equivalent to nefās  offense against divine or moral law.
 
I am obsessed with sex…like much of the rest of the world.  I don’t believe we can get very far in our journey towards peace and happiness in this life, without first gaining control of our sex…our sexual instincts and desires.  We need to solve this puzzle, in order to move on to other important life purposes. Sexual energy is the source of great pleasure and joy, and tragically, the source of the worst of all human evils: the sexual abuse, exploitation, rape, torture, selling (aka trafficking) of another human. 
 
Were it not for the “free” internet that has powerfully and dramatically changed our world, for good and bad, I would consider the subject of sex to be too personal and too private for open discussion.  However, with report after report, story after story, crime after crime, being brought to light on the “abuse” of sex in our community…I feel an urgency to ask people to please, please…let us talk about what is happening! 
 
On Saturday, March 24th, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. at LSU-Shreveport’s University Center, there will be a screening of the powerful and alarming documentary Nefarious – Merchant of Souls.  Following the documentary, there will be what is called an “Idea Fest”, or simply an open discussion of the topic of sex and in particular why sexual deviant behavior is so common in our culture. I hope this day becomes a day that lets the light shine brightly on a deeply dark topic. There will be experts and highly-trained people present to help us in our “Idea Fest”.  The event is free and open to the community.  Seating, however, is limited.  Feel free to contact me for questions.
