    Obama supports gay marriage, but gives billions to countries who executes them. Killing a baby is a woman's right, and pornography is ok.

    Obama is a good father?

    Only a nation of fools, beggars, and illiterates would re-elect him.

    "Nazi German took a hard-line against Pornography too."

    What position does the LDS church which you reference in your screen name take on the items in your list? Don't they provide for the homeless and immigrants, and give emergency assistance to everyone regardless of race or religion in times of disaster?

    Sounds like they are pretty much in line with the thinking of the Man who walked the shores of Galilee.

    Federal obscenity law in the U.S. is unusual in that there is no uniform national standard. Former Justice Potter Stewart of the Supreme Court of the United States, in attempting to classify what material constituted exactly "what is obscene," infamously wrote, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced…[b]ut I know it when I see it…

    What an absolutely silly article, how do you enforce something with the guidelines "I know it when I see it."

    Well the Tailban and Romney agree...again.

    Porn is not illegal, at least a lot of porn, so what is the "illegal porn" this article is talking about? Frankly, I'd be will to bet that most who have posted here have looked at porn at some point in their lifetime as a personal choice, not because they were forced to. And trying to enforce "illegal porn" laws, I believe, will be akin to the prohibition of alcohol.

    In a poll of issues that are of greatest concern to voters in this Presidential election, obscenity laws, which are generally left to the states, would not even make the list.

    The GOP has a sharp eye for matters that warrant action at the Federal level.

    Amazing how many times a person has to post something to get it on here.

    So here's an attack without any evidence or example of what they claim Obama is doing. What is sooooo sad is that the church that owns this paper is supposed to triumph truth and goodness above all else and has suffered from the same factless, baseless attacks from the jeering mob. Full circle that the memebrs of the church are now a jeering mob that are unconvinced by facts.

    I could make baseless claims about a lot of people without any facts but you would think it's unfair if done to YOU.

    Obama is a weakling, and looks weaker and weaker as each day goes by.

    By not enforcing obscenity laws, Obama has demonstrated he's in favor of porn.

    Those who want smaller government, particularly a smaller federal government, ironically seem to be the ones who are yelling loudest for federal enforcement of morality. What about self-government, community government, state government? Do you honestly think Obama is *protecting* pornography -- forbidding the enforcement of federal laws? Good grief!

    Yet another compelling reason to elect Mitt Romney!
