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.
