This is the extract from an article on a famous porn star who was also a devout church-goer - and continued to be throughout her adult movie career.

Annabel Chong was born Grace Quek (pronounced “quake”) in Singapore, 1972. Her Christian parents (mum’s a piano teacher, dad’s a schoolteacher) sent her to convent school and encouraged her to study law but her “dwindling religious faith and burgeoning sexuality” were already causing problems. In a traumatic ritual, she was exorcised in a local church at the age of 17. In 1991, she moved to London to attend King’s College and thence to America and the University of Southern California, where she was so enraged by feminist theory and repressive Christian teachings that she took to porn as a kind of practical adjunct to her gender studies course, and to show that adult movie stars can also be devout Christians.


Are being a pious Christian and sexually promiscuous mutually exclusive?

Or in this case, working in the adult industry to fund studies while attending church? Would this person be accepted in your church?
