WARNING: angry words follow

I. HATE. PORN.

I really, really do. Today the mail brought an innocent looking envelope that disgorged a pile of filthy ads into my lap. I didn’t ask for it. I didn’t want to see it. And I sure as anything didn’t want it in my home. And I’m not talking about just skimpy pictures–I’m talking about really nasty, explicit stuff.

Normally, for me, prornography is kind of an abstract question. It’s easy for me to say that it’s bad and go on my way. But today, it came right into my home and slapped me in the face. It’s so exploitative! It exploits the very worst instincts in men and women. It devalues men and women. We become nothing more than a collection of sexual (or sexualized) parts. It’s a filthy perversion of something that God created to be beautiful and good.

I’m not a big fan of censorship, but I have a hard time with porn being legal. I really do. I understand in theory why it can’t be made illegal, but deep down in my soul, I. hate. it.

  1. Good! I’m glad you hate it. I do, too. It dehumanizes everybody involved. It perverts what God created to be beautiful. It’s horrible, horrible stuff.

    As a free-speech lover and anti-censorship advocate, I don’t think we should make porn illegal. Attempts to ban porn or have failed in the past and led to laughable situations of Supreme Court Justices looking at pictures or movies to determine whether they are obscenity or not.

    But that’s just an issue with the limits of government and the trust we put in government to distinguish good and bad speech. That doesn’t mean there isn’t bad, disgusting speech out there. And pornography is some of the worst. I don’t want to ban it, but I do hate it.

    So, yeah, I’m glad you feel the same way I do.

  2. I COMPLETELY agree with you. I lost my dear friend and potential boyfriend to this garbage….and that’s exactly what it is. COMPLETE GARBAGE that ruins lives, tears up relationships, and dimmoralizes everything that God created to be beautiful between to people in PRIVATE! So…….THANK YOU for taking a stand against it.
