Jeffrey Dahmer drugged and killed 17 men and boys.  Before his imprisonment, he came to a point where he was murdering once a week.  Driven by a desire to control individuals for his own gratification, Dahmer committed horrifying crimes.  Their details need not be related here, as Paul’s words may have bearing on such a discussion:  “For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret” (Ephesians 5:14).  But what helped drive Dahmer’s desires bears retelling.  When asked what motivated him to commit such heinous acts, Dahmer confessed to the FBI in 1992 that (among other things: “heavy drinking,” etc.) pornography had played a part.
