What does a pornography stash like Osama bin Laden's say about the motivation of Islamist terrorists?
DIdn't the 9-11 hijackers frequent strip joints in preparation for their homicidal self-immolation?

First, it says that the "holy" terrorists, who want to punish the "great Satan," are complete hypocrites. They are obsessed with the most squalid elements of the western culture they want to destroy.
Second, it shows that Islamist terrorists are likely driven by guilt to try to atone by heroic acts of violence under the false theology of Islam. They imagine themselves latter-day Saladins riding forth for the honor of Islam, thought they parody Saladin's chivalry. In contrast, Christianity provides reasonable means of atonement through confession, forgiveness, and restitution, and it recognizes that homicidal violence can never reestablish a broken relationship with God. Indeed, death closes the window of forgiveness because it make repentance impossible.
Third, it says that the Islamist terrorists are sexually frustrated. Islamists thrive in cultures where loving marriages are rare, either because wealthy men like Osama keep harems (his fourth wife was only 29) or because rigid customs require vast bride payments out of reach of most men. Whenever you have a population of mostly single men, civilization is tenuous. None of the 9-11 hijackers was married.

It says that all men are horny. That is how procreation occurs. Porn, strip clubs, prostitution, etc. just profit from men's natural, biologically-driven desire for sex.
