I was asked if it bothered me that some men will mock me for my strong stand on why I am opposed to men going to strip clubs and subscribing to porn on cable TV or the Internet and magazines.

I said no, because many of these men talk a great deal and make no sense.

After a while, too many of these men who love porn will develop a mental disorder. These men don’t care who they hurt as long as they fill their lust and in their small minds, it is an accepted way of life for them.

This lifestyle is the reason we have tens of thousands of women and children being sexually assaulted each year and an increase in domestic violence on women and children, ending up with children growing up in broken homes.

This is a big reason we have more than 21 million Americans who struggle with depression, with some 30,000 committing suicide each year. The spring of 2007 the Australian government had an ongoing investigation on child porn sites in 77 nations, and it has provided the FBI with more than 200 U.S. Internet addresses in which “suspects pay about $90 to view the abuse of infants and older boys and girls being sexually abused.”

Think about that when men think it’s no big deal to look at all forms of porn.

Philosopher Edmund Burke made it plain: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
