I think your typical non religious, moderate christians (the ones that dont go to church or read the bible hardly ever) and more liberal Christians under estimate the prevelance of this type of material. They think it's limited to a small amount of weirdos. If they realized how prevelant it was I think they'd be less apathetic about it.
One moved to Seattle and couldn't get a job. Moved back. Another went into another field but got layed off, 2 more tried to move out west, even flew out for interviews but couldn't get jobs. Another quit. They are trying.
I heard a piece on NPR a few years ago about people who want particular limbs removed. They say it feels foreign and are obsessed with having it gone. Some have it removed and are so happy afterwards. It obviously sounds incredibly insane. They were studing them of course. Can't remember much else. Seems like a similar situation here.
