The discussion on this issue made me think of Pope Benedict’s recent encyclical. Yes, people have the legal and moral freedom to sell and buy, to advertise and entertain. No system other than a free market is as successful at meeting people’s legitimate needs and reasonable wants.

However, the better, more moral, choice by sellers would to NOT sell sex to children, or use “sexy” children to sell products. The better, more moral, choice by consumers would be to reject this type of commercial activity. The better choice by parents would be to practice virtue themselves and train their children to do the same.

Yup. Just because they “can”, doesn’t mean they should.
