Re: Shouldn't Pornography Be Banned By Now?
HEELKris - Yeah... No. Porn is still wrong.
It easily enslaves people to their own cravings and opens the door to other forms of evil, like anger, abuse, violence, hatred, lying, envy, compulsiveness and selfishness.
I never saw anyone do all that from watching porn.
The viewer's exposure to such themes naturally increases the likelihood that they may attempt to act out what they've viewed. This can lead to sexual crimes, a la the late Ted Bundy and Gary Ridgway (The Green River Killer).
If that were true 1000's of people would be arrested every day. People say the same thing about violent video games like Black Ops 2 and we don't see everyone having the urge to go out and kill.
It could also inspire unhealthy and/or inappropriate relationships with co-workers. Looking at porn can damage the viewer's current or future marriage sex life. Porn viewers may find that it's difficult to enjoy true intimacy with their spouse when they're fantasizing about somebody else!
This has nothing do with porn! When they watch porn and masterbate they will not want to cheat on their spouse. Studies show that most married couples fantasize about others to keep the sex fresh, and they are not watching porn.
As it gains influence, the evil can numb the viewer's ability discern right and wrong. As traditional moral values are blurred, confusion sets in.
That's blamed on watching porn? What a crock of bullshit!
