Shelley Lubben Confronted by Her Brother During Disastrous PornHarms Webcast

On April 20 & 21, 2012, Shelley Lubben appeared on a pair of PornHarms webcasts which were unmitigated disasters by any metric. Not only did the worldwide webcasts net no more than 30 viewers apiece, nearly half of those viewers consisted of Lubben's own Pink Cross cult members (including Jan Meza and Heather Jabornik), Morality In Media/PornHarms employees (including Dawn Hawkins), her critics (including her brother, Chris Moore), and even her own father, whom she has trashed in her fictionalized life story.

Lubben repeatedly asked for questions from viewers, but refused to answer any of the good ones -- such as when her brother asked, "Why didn't you mention all the love our parents showed you in your book?",  "I'd like to know if God was serious when He said 'Honor thy father and mother'?" and "Why won't you let your kids talk to their grandparents?"
Read the comment threads from the bottom up.

Lubben was furious about the disastrous webcasts, and decided to exact revenge on her brother, Chris, by interfering in his marriage.
Two days later, Chris reported:
I’ve seen acts of desperation from my sister Shelley before but this is a whole new level. The message below was sent to my in-laws last night over FB. The funny thing is, she sent one copy to my sister-in-law on accident, who was kind enough to forward it to me. Michael Whiteacre sex trafficks women??? lol
Dear Xxxx,
I know you to be a good Christian woman and I am kindly asking you to speak with your son in law about sabotaging my ministry. My name is Shelley Lubben, the daughter of Dennis and Sally Moore. This week is Porn Harms National Awareness Campaign where the top anti-pornography ministries get together and raise awareness about the harms of pornography and sex trafficking. During this campaign I did two LIVE stream online video discussions talking about the severe harms of sex trafficking in pornography and my brother Chris Moore interrupted each talk by posting hateful comments. Many of the people who were in the video chat to receive help told me Chris was such a major distraction that they felt they could not receive help. I have been patient with my brother as he attacks me viciously publicly but now he has gone too hurting people we are trying to help. It’s one thing if he wants to speak out about me publicly but it’s another to come into our video discussion and sabotage our work. Could you imagine if I went to Arlene’s work of Chris’s work and sent in vicious emails or made phone calls to their bosses to complain about Arlene or Chris? A true Christian would never act this way. I am hoping you, a godly woman will speak to Chris. I realize he is angry with me but to interrupt our campaign and my place of work while we are trying to help millions of people recover from the harms of pornography is unacceptable. I prayed about how to handle this in love and felt the LORD would have me reach out to you and your husband. I am truly sorry you even have to be involved with our family problems. But any help you can give in this situation is greatly appreciated. Many blessings on your family, Shelley Lubben
I also want to add that Chris has partnered with a well known pornographer and atheist Michael Whiteacre to sabotage my ministry. This man has followed me here in my home town and has made death threats against my family. I tried to warn my brother but he will not listen. I also tried to warn my parents but they have been influenced by my brother to associate with this pornographer. I can send you any proof you want to show that my brother is definitely consorting with a pornographer. I have proof of all of this. I understand Chris is mad with me but to partner with a man who is paid by the porn industry to sabotage my ministry and who sex trafficks women is unacceptable. I hope you can talk some sense into my brother. I very much still love him and want reconciliation. Through Christ, all things are possible. Thank you for taking time to read this. Shelley
Feel free to call me at 6617063XXX to discuss this matter. Thank you xxxx and xxxxxx for your time.

Naturally, Lubben's letter was full of lies: Whiteacre is neither an atheist nor a pornographer, has never followed her in Bakersfield or anywhere else, has never made death threats, and is not paid by the porn industry. And of course, Lubben's ridiculously over-the-top attempt at manipulating her brother's in-laws failed.

Train Wreck: Shelley Lubben at the Cambridge Union Debate

Watch Shelley Lubben crash and burn at the February 17, 2011 Cambridge Union debate on pornography. Absolutely jaw-dropping

A crestfallen Shelley Lubben leaves the podium as an angry Gail Dines glares at the pro-pronography debaters.
A crestfallen Shelley Lubben leaves the podium as an angry Gail Dines glares at the pro-pronography debaters.

From the local news coverage of this debate:
When Ms Lubben took to the floor, arguably the headline act, her passion and anger hid her argument. The audience did not react well to this.
Resting on the lectern, her high-heeled shoe subconsciously beating on the floor, her impassioned attack on the porn industry strayed from the academic debate.
“There is nothing funny or glamorous about this industry," she said. "Pornography doesn’t do a good public service because it is lying to you. I have the evidence. It’s lying to you. It’s modern day slavery."

And with that, the Cambridge students voted for porn.

An official Pink Cross statement on the debacle illustrated that Lubben had learned nothing from the experience:
Cambridge University made their choice for porn over Jesus Christ. There was a time when that would have been unthinkable or shocking, but those of us who have been personally effected [sic] by the pornification of society know its lies are seductive and we are no longer shocked. Instead, we are anguished and we are grieving. Another shining city on a hill has been swept over by the tidal wave of pornography.

A full examination of the Cambridge Union debate, including interviews and commentary from debaters and audience members, will be included in a forthcoming episode of The Devil and Shelley Lubben.

Shelley Lubben's brother tells her "I don’t believe a word that comes out of your mouth"

It’s my understanding you contacted mom yesterday through email to warn her of a ‘dangerous’ pornographer who is ‘stalking’ you? It’s also my understanding you are claiming he threatened your life? Do you have any documented proof to substantiate your claims – dangerous, stalking, threatening life? If so, please forward it to me so I can see it for myself.
I need to correct you on a few things.
1) I didn’t fall for anything. 2) Michael Whiteacre didn’t contact me. 3) I contacted him. 4) I do not have a partnership with him, support pornography, did not sign a contract, receive payment or been given any special gifts or incentives. 5) My intent is to provide factual information of your past, our parents and my experience as your brother. This is information you have almost entirely left out of your book, tv interviews and Internet documentation. 6) I have made it very clear to Michael that I do not support pornography but I do support the truth being made public since so much untruth has been spread by you.
You are using a Christian platform to spread lies about our parents and your past so it seemed only fitting for me to use a secular one to spread the truth.
I want you to know that I am not ‘mad’ at you, I am furious with you. I’m not the one ‘dragging’ our whole family into the public spotlight. You have done an excellent job of that yourself. I have spoken many times to this man over the phone and he is not a psychopath. If anything he works with porn but he is coherent and concise in all of the information he gives; I cannot say the same about you. I have seen numerous videos of you on youtube where you are incoherent and belligerent. It is very reminiscent of the way you were 20 years ago.
I’m sorry Shelley but I don’t believe a word that comes out of your mouth. This is not because I’m being influenced by a ‘psychotic pornographer’. I have known you my entire life and you are a master manipulator. You once said I was ‘secretly jealous of you’—you don’t know how wrong you are. I feel sorry for you and hope one day you get the help you so desperately need.

Anti-porn advocate Shelley Lubben has her surgically enhanced breast signed by porn star Ron Jeremy

On the night of April 26, 2011, while her husband, Garrett, was home in Bakersfield, Christian anti-porn evangelist Shelley "the rebel prophet" Lubben attended a Burbank Porn Star Karaoke (PSK) benefit clad in an extremely revealing strapless dress. Witnesses reported that Lubben made an inordinate number of trips to the ladies room, and acted intoxicated and manic.

A photographer caught Lubben having her surgically enhanced breast signed by Ron Jeremy, the hirsute porn legend famous for being able to suck his own penis, outside the bar’s toilet – and later that night she placed the winning auction bid for a “date” with him. One witness at PSK reported, “There was something decidedly WRONG with her that night. She bid $400, then $500, then $600 on the Ron Jeremy date without intervening bids.”

Cell phone videos from that night showed Lubben dancing lasciviously, and hanging on Jeremy outside Sardo’s Bar with her pupils dilated.
