Do you think Pornography is a “public health crisis” and “infectious, fatal epidemic”?

Some pornography facts:
  1. Porn sites get 450 million new visitors per month (that is more than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined – Wow!!)
  2. 93 percent of boys and 62 percent of girls are exposed to pornography before age 18.
  3. Many people are addicted to pornography without even knowing it.

Do you think pornography is an issue that we should be worried about – whether now or in the future? Do you think it should be treated like a war that people from every faith should fight together?

In the United States of America, Utah lawmakers declared pornography a public health crisis. This is the first of its kind in the country. Elder Holland and other community leaders came together at a conference organized by the Utah Coalition Against Pornography over concern around what they call a growing epidemic as dangerous as an infectious disease. This anti-pornography group has grown from about 200 to 3000 members over 15 years

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, member of the LDS Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles had this to say,

“Society must see this evil like the epidemic it is. This ought to be seen like a public health crisis, like a war, like an infectious fatal epidemic, like a moral plague on the body politic that is maiming the lives of our citizens. We do need to see this (pornography) like avian flu, cholera, diphtheria or polio. It needs to be eradicated. Catholic bishops, Protestant ministers, Jewish rabbis and Muslim mullahs have all spoken out on this sin because God Himself has spoken out on it,” 

Just a rhetorical question though; do you think these Elders and pastors have ever watched pornographic films before? Do you think they watched it in the past and vaguely remember how sickening it was and are speaking out against it? Or do you think that someone just told them something like “there is a kind of movie made where people strip ALL their clothes and have sex for public viewing, and anyone in the world can watch” and they picked up the fight from there?

I do not know! But I hope they do not speak like Saints in public then run amok as slutty evils behind closed doors (just kidding).
