Theology of the Body Thursday #14: Russell Brand, Theologian?


Now that I’ve got your attention, I’d like to let you know I’m completely serious. Last Friday Russell Brand posted the most awesome anti-porn rant ever. Yes, Russell Brand, eccentric English comedian and activist. Star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. I’ve noted his wisdom in the past. For instance, check out this interview he did with Westboro Baptist Church. 

I wanted to write my own analysis of his rant, but there is no point in reinventing the wheel. First, here is the video (Offensive Language Alert):


Here is the best analysis I’ve found. It’s from Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble: Russell Brand, Unexpected TOB Theolgian

As she says:

Wow, basically this video is wisdom from unexpected places. Russell Brand is a man who speaks about the dangers of porn from experience.


Anyone who is affected by porn or uses porn (Fifty Shades of Grey included) should watch this.
