(Newser) – Over a thousand people are descending on an Atlanta-area church this weekend for 3 days of talks on pornography, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The "Porn Talk" event, one of many put on by anti-porn Christian group XXXchurch.com, seeks to address the harm pornography is doing to children, families, and marriage. Sessions like "Porn and Pizza" for teens and "Porn and Pastries" for women will discuss porn's effect on different groups.

"The reality is it’s really destroying homes,” says the pastor of the non-denominational World Victory Church. Forums at the event will teach parents how to set up Web filters and the speakers will include former sex industry insiders, including former porn producer Donny Pauling. "What I went through personally and put the girls through are definitely regrettable,” says Pauling, who has spoken at dozens of churches. “But one thing I’ve learned is that God can use all things for good.”
