    I don't know if John Ashkroft program to abolish porn has failed although there are many activists and religious personalities who work in the same way!

    despite it looks like secular business, porn has some religious angle: in 2004 Al Goldstein stated in an interview that : " The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don't believe in authoritarianism."

    Al Goldstein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    professor Nathan Abram has focused on this point

    Christians and people in other reliogions are not perfect. They still live in their bodies,,and in this world They ar still tempted, and in a battle with the flesh, just like everyone else.

    God does help us when we are willing to accept that help. We still sin, and nothing in the Bible or anywhere else says we don't or can possibly be perfect.

    What we have to do as Christians is to resist, and be willing to take on the battle with the will and determination to win. In the middle of that we must hold tight to God's promise that with every temptation there is a way out. Then we must take that way out. "The Spirit is willing (To do right) but the flesh is weak."

    Of course, the resto of the population has issues as well, but they love to point fingers.

    The real question is why is it that even though multinational corporations will pay billions of dollars for 30 seconds of advertising because they know it will make you more likely to purchase their products, you seem to think you watch/view hours upon hours of pornographic material without it affecting you at all? Does that make sense to anyone?

    Pornography is most evil because it's a lie and it's very addicting. It gives you a completely warped view of reality while pretending this is exactly what life should be. And what makes it even more insideous is it takes something very beautiful and distorts it to the point where of dysfunction and destruction.
