Family Research Council Adds Republican Platform Plank To Prosecute Porn Companies

Well now the FRC has just gone too far!

As Republicans flocked south for their convention in a city notorious for an abundance of “gentlemen’s clubs,” the GOP was set to adopt language in its official platform calling for strict enforcement of federal obscenity laws, including those concerning illegal distribution of pornography on the Internet, motel and cable TV and even retail stores. The platform revises language from the party’s 2008 document, which opposed child pornography and exploitation, to make an even stronger statement on all pornography: “Current laws on all forms of pornography and obscenity need to be vigorously enforced.” Patrick A. Trueman, president of the anti-obscenity advocacy group Morality in Media, said it was a welcome step forward and credited the work of Family Research Council President Tony Perkins for leading the push. Mr. Perkins, a convention delegate from Louisiana and head of one of the most prominent faith-based organizations in the country, introduced the language. – The Family Research Council vows to prosecute “all forms of pornography by using the GOP

For the GOP, a party that claims to want government out of citizens’ lives, they sure spend a lot of time obsessing over, and trying to control, what the citizens do in the privacy of their own homes.

When the Religious Right first came along in the early 1980’s, then known as the Moral Minority this message from the Adult Video Association was tacked onto the beginning or end of every adult movie in the Unites States

Looks like its time to dust this video off and start playing it again.

Ironically which states purchase the most porn?

It’s the RED STATES. It’s true. Look it up.
