    What is Project Anti-Cosmo? Cosmopolitan is emblematic of what’s wrong with our culture today. The content of the magazine is predominantly (and often explicitly) about sex. The articles you’ll typically find in its pages advise “hookups” without a hint of emotional connection. Yet, unlike “R” rated movies, there’s no “age limit” for anyone to access it, so young teen girls are reading, absorbing, and acting on its destructive message. Indeed, the increasing focus on sex sex sex encourages the magazine’s impressionable readers to make the most shallow choices imaginable. Because of its popularity (it’s in every supermarket, at the nail...

    Who does he think he is: a reasonable, respectable, pro-family, pro-life, anti-smut Catholic? I write that in response to the article, "Santorum wants to impose 'Judeo-Christian Sharia'", penned by Dean Obeidallah, who is described as a comedian. That helps to explain why he wrote it for CNN site, which many people do consider a joke: 4. No porn! I'm not kidding. Santorum signed "The Marriage Vow" pledge (PDF) authored by the Family Leader organization, under which he swears to oppose pornography. I think many would agree that alone should disqualify him from being president. Oh, the deep belly laughs flow...

    In defense of taboo. Liberal intelligentsia circa 1990: “You know, you fundamentalist types are all hung up on sex. If you would just lose your hangups, things would be better. Take pornography for instance, it is the taboo associated with it that makes it “forbidden” and therefore tantalizing. If we could just get rid of the taboo, most people would lose interest in it.” Well, they got their wish. For the last fifteen years, almost every last bit of the taboo against pornography has been eradicated from our culture. Pornography is everywhere. Once upon a time, pornography was a rare...

    BOSTON December 21, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One in 13 girls aged 14-to-20, or about 7.7 percent, who participated in a recent study from Boston University’s School of Public Health said they have engaged in “Multi-Person Sex” (MPS), reports the Daily Mail. Researchers believe imitation of pornography is a leading cause. The study involved 328 girls from underprivileged areas of the city who had visited a neighborhood clinic for sexual health issues. However, economic status did not appear to be determinative of risky sexual behavior. The study found more than half of the girls who had engaged in MPS had been...

    Last week, on Thanksgiving, President Obama delivered a message to the American people. It ran eleven paragraphs and 503 words. None of those words was God. Obama thanked the men and women who defend the country; he thanked volunteers at soup kitchens. All of that is well and good. Thanksgiving is about celebrating community. But more than anything, it’s about celebrating the benevolence of God. At least that’s what George Washington said in declaring it a national holiday. The day of Thanksgiving, he stated, was to “be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great...

    The Mafia is a degenerate organization which exploits human misery for criminal profit, and even children are not beyond the reach of its dirty hands. For decades the Mafia has been the principal producer and distributor of kiddie porn, and among the key figures in this racket was Gambino capo Robert DiBernardo who was a top lieutenant to family boss Paul Castellano. The pair would meet each Friday at Castellano's Staten Island mansion to gloat how filthy rich they were getting from their ungodly crimes. In 1986 federal postal inspectors discovered cartons of magazines seemingly depicting underage boys "engaged in...

Last month it was reported that German publishing company Weltbild, which is 100 percent owned by the Catholic church, was profiting through the sale of erotic novels. Weltbild is one of Germany’s main book enterprises, with annual sales of 1.6 billion euros and a workforce of 6400. Its interests include general publishing, a main national bookshop chain and book clubs. Catholic leaders were outraged that the profitable company’s book range included steamy pulp novels with titles like Boarding...

The texts, “Norwegian Wood” and “Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines,” originally appeared on the summer reading list for both middle school and high school students at Monroe Township schools this year. “Norwegian Wood,” a novel by Haruki Murakami, includes a graphic depiction of a 31-year-old woman raping a 13-year-old girl, while “Tweak,” a story about addiction, describes a homosexual orgy scene...

He seemed a nice chap, very well spoken, and freely said himself that last year he would have agreed that the combination of the two jobs was inappropriate. Since then, however, he has apparently received so many messages of support from fellow-teachers and members of the public that he had revised...

A member of the Congressional Black Caucus this week blamed black unemployment on "racism" and the "digital divide," defined as the gap between those with access to computers and the Internet and those without it.

    A proposed law designed to fight child pornography has rankled privacy advocates because it would require Internet service providers to keep 12-month logs of customers' names, credit card information, and other identifying information that are tied to temporarily assigned network addresses. Opponents say the law wouldn't markedly help lock up child pornographers and pedophiles, but rather would treat all Americans as criminals so that if law enforcement feels it has a need to find out who visited a website or posted a particular bit of content online, it can. The Electronic Frontier Foundation notes that the same data could become...

    Could the widespread availability and consumption of pornography in recent years actually be rewiring the male brain? It is hard to ignore how many highly visible men in recent years (indeed, months) have behaved in sexually self-destructive ways. Some powerful men have long been sexually voracious; unlike today, though, they were far more discreet and generally used much better judgment in order to cover their tracks. Of course, the heightened technological ability nowadays to expose private behavior is part of the reason for this change. But that is precisely the point: so many of the men caught up in sex-tinged...

FCC licensing laws require broadcasters to serve "public interest, convenience and necessity," to protect people from exploitation of their valuable public utility. NBC is appearing to defy FCC laws, while contributing to sexualization/victimization of women, which results in trafficking, rape and prostitution.

He said they were among a wave of performers who 'have taken sexualised imagery, dance moves and lyrical content way beyond the limits of decency'.

That led columnist Phil Bronstein of the San Francisco Chronicle to muse that this might explain why the world's most notorious terrorist never launched an attack on that city's transportation system. "…If he's like most adult-content consumers," he wrote, bin Laden would have been wasting too many hours on the computer to do much of anything else. At least the time-wasting aspects of pornography seem to have found a general consensus. Beyond that, however, you're in for a fight. A...

That’s why I think my account must have been hacked.” Weiner said it is unlikely that...

    The American Civil Liberties Union wants prisoners at a South Carolina jail to have access to pornography, lawyers defending a religious freedom lawsuit claim. A suit was initially filed against the Berkeley County Jail in Moncks Corner last month for allegedly barring inmates from receiving any reading materials besides the Bible from outside the prison, which lawyers representing the prison deny. The attorneys said prison inmates are simply not allowed to read materials bound together by tape, staples, paper clips or clasps. They also aren't allowed material that could "encourage deviant sexual behavior." "If they don't like the wording in...

    Larry Flynt, with bodyguard Frank Torres, in his gold wheelchair SAN FRANCISCO, May 30, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pornographer Larry Flynt, 69, is wheel-chair bound and speaking with difficulty but remains unrepentant.  In a recent interview, Flynt admired the Obama family while showing great disdain for Sarah Palin, especially in that she did not abort her Down’s Syndrome child. “Sarah Palin is the dumbest thing,” Flynt told Johann Hari of London’s Independent newspaper.  “She did a disservice to every woman in America. She knew from the first month of pregnancy that kid was going to be Down’s Syndrome. It’s brain dead....

    A Swedish prosecutor filed charges Friday against 24 people for possessing and distributing child pornography, in a case that has drawn widespread attention as all but one of the defendants are women.

When Skoglund was arrested last September, he was in the possession of 1,181 still shots and 40 films considered child pornography. "One hundred and fifteen of the pictures and 37 of the films...

    SNIPPET: "According to one of my most trusted sources, the blurry image seen on the tape is indeed Osama bin Laden. One of the reasons that this is convincing is that the blurry image remains in the video. As Sahab, which produces al Qaeda's propaganda, is very selective in the information it releases, and rarely leaves garbage in its videos. As Sahab intentionally leaves in this clip, for reasons unknown. Does al Qaeda want to generate a buzz? Is this a hidden message? Perhaps this is a precursor to a new bin Laden tape?"

    Despite all of the speculation about why Osama bin Laden had a porn stash, we have overlooked one possible explanation. Perhaps bin Laden was simply applying an old adage to his situation. When in Pakistan do as the Pakistanis do. Perhaps he was just adapting to the local customs. Google reports that Pakistan leads the world in porn searches. One assumes that they lead the world in per-capita porn consumption too. Kelli Morgan reports: “So here's the irony: Google ranks Pakistan No. 1 in the world in searches for pornographic terms, outranking every other country in the world in searches...

    In Kandahar, a city with a population of about 500,000, and other towns, dance parties are a popular -- often weekly -- pastime. Young boys dress up as females, wearing makeup and jewelry on their feet, and dance for a dozen or more leering middle-aged men who throw money at them and then take them home.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A sizeable stash of pornography was among the items seized when U.S. Navy SEALs raided the Pakistani hideout of Osama bin Laden, almost two weeks ago, U.S. officials say. The officials said it was unclear who the material belonged to, and there was no way to know whether bin Laden had viewed it. (snip) The pornography was among the computer materials confiscated in the raid after the SEALs killed bin Laden, ending an almost ten-year manhunt for the terrorist behind the 9/11 terror attacks.

Her book described the deleterious impact this phenomenon is having on marriage, women, young people and men. Five years later, Princeton’s Witherspoon Institute has published this impressive collection...
