The truth: Pornography harms
A traditional values group in Australia is using a weapon that defies accepted thinking to defeat pornography.
Pornographic magazines reserved for adults in America are on display and sold to children in Australia. Jack Sonnemann of the Australian Federation for the Family says some parents in his country allow their daughters to work as prostitutes.
“It’s so bad there are even media reports of prostitutes going in to our grade nine girls’ schools, teaching career opportunities, because after all, it’s a legal profession like a typist, and the prostitutes can’t be discriminated against,” Sonnemann laments.
He says it all falls back to pornography, so he is fighting against the porn culture that has developed and its associated problems, and his group is seeing amazing things happen through presenting the hard truth.
“That’s where we’ll see the victory,” he asserts. “There is nothing good in pornography [according to] all the data that’s coming out — all the experts, all the resources, and the research from across the world, except for shonky little non-peer-reviewed stuff that people tout as authorities. They’re looking more and more like the idiots they are.”
In America, organizations like the National Center on Sexual Exploitation are challenging the pornography problem with the truth that porn harms. Also, the nation is becoming more and more aware of that fact. Utah, for instance, has declared pornography a public health crisis, and it is part of the Republican Party Platform.
