NORMALIZING PORNOGRAPHY: What are the costs? What can WE do?

Take a moment to read about the impact that the growing porn industry and society's growing acceptance of it is having on our children.  Then go to the sites at the end to see what you can do to fight the spread of this soul-crushing, child-eating business.

> "UK Pre-Teens Aspiring Porn Stars? American Civil Liberties Union credited for spread of porn in US,"

from LIFESITENEWS.COM (9.22.05)

A researcher has revealed that many UK pre-teen girls are aspiring porn stars, with the girls viewing the deviant lifestyle as "glamorous."

Pamela Paul, the American author of PORNIFIED: HOW PORNOGRAPHY IS TRANSFORMING OUR LIVES, OUR RELATIONSHIPS AND OUR FAMILIES (Times Books, 2005), reveals that even hard-core porn star Jenna Jameson was stunned while on tour promoting her best-selling memoir, when 13-year-old girls were coming to her to tell her she was their role model.

So what do we do with this information?  Wring our hands and keep the kids at home but away from the computer?  Fortunately, there are a couple of wonderful organizations leading the charge against pornography.

Morality in Media (http://www.moralityinmedia.org) is a national, not-for-profit, interfaith organization that was established in 1962 to combat obscenity and uphold decency standards in the media. It conducts public information programs to educate and involve concerned citizens, and maintains the National Obscenity Law Center (http://www.moralityinmedia.org/nolc/index.htm), a clearinghouse of legal materials on obscenity law. It also provides action tools for fighting porn spam, general porn, and bad TV.

Protect Kids (http://www.protectkids.com) and Enough Is Enough (http://www.enough.org) are sister sites that educate and seek to protect children and families from the dangers of illegal Internet pornography and sexual predators.  Check out these sites and prayerfully consider taking tangible action against this egregious trend toward normalizing pornography.
