Its refreshing that Utah folks can define what pornography is while the Supreme Court can not.
I wonder if Utah can do this without violating the Freedom of Speech amendment in the Bill of Rights also?

I am glad there are leaders and others concerned enough to be doing something proactive about pornography. I have no doubt it is a problem of much greater significance than the economy, or shortage of water or a number of other issues. I wish this group success, and guess I need to figure out a way to take action too. Thank you to those who took part!

Pornography is covered by the first amendment exactly as much as screaming "FIRE" in a crowded theater.

Here's an idea - if you are against pornography, don't click on it. It's like every other fake "disease" that is cooked up to rationalize bad behavior. Stop whining and control your darn kids, yourself, and your behavior.

Victims of these "diseases" usually deserve exactly what they get

Sjc - your response is very simplistic and ignorant.

No-one called it a disease. It is a huge and distructive problem. A parent alone cannot control every aspect of their kids lives especially as they get older and more independent. If society were to support respect for woman instead of exploiting them and natural human drives for money parents might have better success at controlling their "darn" children so they can grow up to be adults who can then control themselves.

I could've sworn from the gun debate that we couldn't allow any restrictions on freedoms allowed for in the constitution but hey at least now we're all on the same page against that idea.

This is highly ironic seeing as how Utah is the largest consumer per capita of paid online porn subscriptions. Yes, that is indeed a fact.

bwslc So maybe that is why the problem was discussed in SLC.
