I am not talking their free will. They can still do what they want, but they must suffer the consequences of harming others.
Pornography is one of the most destructive practices in our society today. It destroys the health and morals, and dehumanizes those who participate in it. It insidiously, slowly destroys the families of the people who watch it. It demonically distorts the meaning of sex. It seriously endangers our children.
And you tell me there is nothing we, as a society, can do nothing to stop it? … because we might injure someones free will? Are we to give Satan free reign over our families, simply because someone may get their knickers in a twist because his freedom to use others may get restricted?
Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart may have said, when trying to define the elusive concept of pornography, “I can’t define it, but I know when I see it,” but his response should have added, “and with God’s help, we will stop it.” If we know what it is when we see it, we can restrict it.
And if Hugh Hefner or Larry Flint lose a little money, because their audience drys up, because no one really reads their insipid drivel without a naked woman on the facing page anyway, who really cares?
