We need a grassroots movement to get porn off the net and away from children that might want to go to to the whitehouse on the net and instead end up at a porn site.

The email is pooring in and this one I have been told I could post if I wanted. Here it is.

Great post and well worth thinking about. Although I imagine there are some that would disagree with you even here. Interesting as to what 'conservative' means nowadays isn't it?

Sex is wonderful. It's always been wonderful. It will always be wonderful. That will not change. However, porno just cheapens it, and degrades the people who indulge in it.

Surely sir, one such as 'learned' as you would dare not wish us to return to Victorian ideals, now would you?

I'm sorry I lost my blinking "Sarcasm" .gif- apparently you needed it.

I remember when pinball machines were the great danger to our youth.

(not to diminish any arguments, it is always someTHING to blame instead of SomeONE.)

No, here's where the Freedom thing becomes dangerous for all. When it is not limited by moral compasses instilled in us from not only religious teachings, but our ancestors who fought to start a nation of states and believed the same things. By accepting a 'rolling' standard of morality you are no better than a liberal.

I think you missed my point. I didnt say anything about a 'rolling standard of morality', I only suggested that your version of morality might be different from that of others, and that freedom allows for that, where religions and other standards do not. There are not, nor should there be exceptions to Freedom. To do so, would make the very Constitution you sight, a hypocrital exercise.

I find it humorous, no sad really, that a phrase that has been used for years by liberals is being picked up by those that consider themselves conservative to condone something that their grandparents would beat the ever living stuffing out of them if they discovered some of these hidden actions. Aren't conservatives trying to return or stop at a certain level of not only government control, but moral decline

I personally think that very meaning of Conservatism has been stolen and redefined by those looking to impose a certain ethic and behavior on others, in the same way that Liberals do. Conservatism is about limiting ALL forms of control, not just governmental. You might read your Consitution again. It is a difficult notion for some to accept that Morality is not defined by Conservatives or Liberals, but by the Individuals that the Constitution is designed to protect. The Constution says that you and I have a right to disagree on our words and deeds, so long as we don't limit each others pursuit of happiness. You and I might agree that what some people choose in that regard to be unfortunate, but that doesnt give us the right to stop them.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion; our Constitution was written only for a moral and religious people, and it is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

Respectfully, John Adams was one man, intitled to his opinion. There were plenty of forefathers in complete disagreement with him. The fact that he was a President means only that. There are plently of quotes from Presidents good and bad, and I certainly would not expect you to agree with every one of them.

Hey, everyone else seems to be getting government handouts these days, but as a plain old middle-class white guy, I've been on the sidelines until now. But now there's a class for me...

Well, I'm here and I'm proud to be a Sexual-American, so gimme, gimme, gimme ;)

America vs. Porn

Video Clerk story (their store rents pr0n; it is alternately funny, sad, and disgusting; sometimes, it is all three)

No kidding. If this article had been against guns to the same degree that it's against porn, TLBSHOW would need an asbestos suit for all the flames! But I guess the same logic is OK when it's applied to something you don't like.
