Why Porn Star Stormy Daniels Has More Character and Integrity Than White Evangelical Christians

Evangelicalism is a movement that is quite dishonest at its core. Evangelicals love to hide and put up a façade that they often retreat behind. The fact of the matter is that when you consider it, a porn star like Stormy Daniels posses far more character and integrity than many evangelical Christians. Why? She’s honest about her career in porn and stripping. She doesn’t put up a façade to mislead others like evangelicals often do. Dare I ask this? Are their lessons that white American evangelicalism can learn from the porn industry especially from someone like Stormy Daniels? Chief among them honesty and integrity?

***Note, like many of the posts I write at this blog I do quite a bit of research. A couple of the links down below are from publications in the porn industry in the United States. So consider yourself warned. Don’t click on something and then send me a nasty email about not being warned, because you have been.***

“Being in the adult industry, I’ve developed a thick skin and maybe a little bit of a dark sense of humor.”

“Traditionally, women have been taught that those poor, helpless women in those movies are being coerced or forced to do something against their will, or exploited by that big, bad male porn producer or director.”

`There is a topic that I would like to breach and look at. But let’s not get wrapped around the pole on this post! 😀 There is an aspect of evangelical culture that needs to be looked at. But before I do that this blog wants to do a look at Stormy Daniels and her work in the porn industry. There is a reason why, and a point that this blog wants to make. 

 

Who is Stormy Daniels? Plus an Overview of an Award Winning Actress in the Pornography Industry

Stormy Daniels was born Stephanie Gregory in March of 1979 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She was raised by her Mother and graduated from high school in 1997. She briefly considered becoming a journalist. When she was growing up it was in a lower-income household and went days without electricity in a bad neighborhood. Daniels would take a path that took her into the pornography industry. It started when she was 17, and she visited a friend in a strip club. She was encouraged to strip and started in Baton Rouge at the Gold Club and became a featured entertainer with Continental Theatrical Agency in September of 2000. Her stage and stripping name is unique. As a fan of Motley Crue, the bassist Nikki Sixx had a daughter named Storm. That name was adopted by Stormy, and her last name came from the drink Jack Daniels, a whisky in the South which had a reputation of being “a Southern favorite.” It appears she started working for Wicked Pictures doing lesbian pornography, and that was followed by Sin City, which is another production company. Her first lesbian film is called “American Girls 2, and her first male-female porno film is titled “Heat.” Her porn career spanned fourteen years and she starred in over 300+ movies.

Here is how Wicked Pictures describes her in their biography. “While some adult actresses consider the acting part of their scenes a chore, Stormy Daniels delivers her lines with the same delight she brings to the sex. Her flawless good looks, mainstream appearances, and effortless performances have made a Stormy a household name among adult fans. Lovers of premier adult content will recognize this Louisiana lady from mega-pictures like the kinky Bound, or her blockbuster Operation Desert Stormy, an X-rated comedy feature which Adult DVD Empire called the greatest porn movie ever made.” If you haven’t seen her clowning her around as a super-spy wife to a bumbling agent in the equally funny sequel Operation Tropic Stormy, or indulging her kinky side in the Predator series, then you really haven’t experienced Stormy’s impressive range as a performer.” In 2004 Stormy won the Best New Starlet Award from Adult Video News, and she has also directed for Wicked. For her work in the adult industry she was inducted into the Adult Video News Hall of Fame on January 18, 2014. To be inducted you have to be in the pornography business for at least a decade. She also entered the XRCO Hall of Fame on April 16, 2014. Some of the movies she acted in include, “Bigger is Better” , “Island Fever 2” , “Trailer Trash Nurses 6” , “Space Nuts” , “Stormy and Her Horny Friends” and “Da Vagina Code.” 

Trailer for Stormy Daniels Unbridled 

Stormy became well known in the United States after it became known Donald Trump had an affair with her. She garnered a lot of fame and became the most famous porn star in the industry. At Pornhub Daniels videos were watched 2,500 times a day online. After the news about Trump’s affair with Daniels she was being watched two million times a day at Pornhub.  When Melania Trump called her a porn hooker, Daniels responded on Twitter with the following. “Hahaha! Although I wasn’t paid for sex and therefore technically not a “hooker” I’ll take being that over what you are any day. You sold your p***y AND your soul…and I’m legal. Keep talking about me. I like your new tits btw. Post (more) nudes? #bebest lol” In 2019 she won Adult Video News  Award 2019 – Mainstream Star of the Year. She toured the United States under the “Make America Horny Again” tour starting with a strip club in South Carolina in January of 2018. It was during this time she published her story in the book, “Full Disclosure.” 

So if you kept with me this far in the post you may be asking, what is your point? Where are you going with this? Well, through it all Stormy Daniels has worked hard in her profession. She has been herself and open. She has not tried to hide her career or her work in the adult industry. She has talked about her career, responded to questions and inquires. And this leads to our next segment of this post. 

 

How American Evangelicalism Makes People Dishonest 

American evangelicalism is a broken system. Its theology just does not work. In order to succeed in the system, pull ahead,  or thrive in it there is one characteristic that is required. You have to be dishonest. Evangelicalism teaches people to lie, and many do that so that they can fit into the system which is the church, ministry, etc… Many evangelicals learn to embrace the dishonesty and soon they can lie at ease and without a second thought. No guilt. No shame. They are just taught to do so and they fall in line. This is a lesson that I have learned when I was a part of evangelicalism. And that is part of the reason I ran afoul of it. Honestly I wish it could be different but the reality is that its how the system operates. One of the reasons why I pushed back from evangelicalism is that it makes people corrupt in many different ways. In this context the dishonesty affects a person’s character. How many evangelicals parrot out other people’s mistakes or sins in secular society while they cover up their own? How many times have you been the person who has washed out and you know a few people that cover up their collapsing marriage, alcohol or other issues? We’re talking about basic evangelical theology right here.

 

Unlike Many White American Evangelicals in Contrast Stormy Daniels in the Pornography Industry is More Honest and Thus Posses More Character

So here is the problem, in the previous section I explained how the culture of evangelicalism makes people dishonest. What happens when we consider the evangelical culture and size it up with someone like Stormy Daniels in the pornography industry? Daniels has been up front about her career, and in the process has even paid tax for it. She hasn’t tried to shy away or hide the type of work she does. In contrast many white evangelicals put on a façade and mislead others. They pretend to be more spiritual, or that they have their act together. Stormy Daniels doesn’t do that at all. She does her job, and even in the process of having sex with other men she just acts herself. I was taken back when I read a couple of articles about her and see the striking contrasts. I wish I could have seen this years ago as I would have not wasted some of my time inside evangelicalism. But Daniels because of her honesty has far more character and integrity than many evangelicals you would see in a church on a Sunday morning. Or a Crusade revival on a university campus in the evening. There is much that can be learned from someone like Stormy Daniels, my question is will evangelicals admit their problems and learn from someone like herself? Jesus, when you think about it liked to hang around the broken and those who are not religious. Often the claim is that Jesus didn’t come for the healthy but for the spiritually sick. Yet consider, evangelicals love to harp about the pornography industry. And yet the reality is that if God did come on the earth chances he would much rather hang out with someone like Stormy Daniels instead of someone in the evangelical Christian faith. And this blog would bet that part of it would be due to Stormy Daniels’ honesty and integrity which is absent inside evangelicalism. This is a post that I have been chewing on for a few months. This blog hopes it gives people something to contemplate. To Stormy Daniels this blog wishes you well. Thanks for your honesty and integrity may evangelicals learn from you.
