A good friend of mine is fighting Agenda 21.
Another friend is educating neighbors and friends on our Constitution and its guaranteed freedoms.
My neighbor down the street shelters dogs in need of a good home.
I learned years ago, that there aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week that would allow me to get involved in all good causes. But yesterday I was introduced to a cause that persuades me to make time for this one. I received the following email.
We need your help! Please join us in publicly recognizing these twelve as responsible parties in the spread of pornography and exploitation. Help us call on them to change their ways.
The email came from a Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director to Porn Harms . Her organization’s Morality in the Media, had made a list of twelve leading contributors to sexual exploitation. They titled their list, 2014 the Dirty Dozen List. I couldn’t believe what I read.
THE 2014 LIST
Attorney General Eric Holder – Mr. Holder refuses to enforce existing federal obscenity laws against hardcore adult pornography, despite the fact that these laws have been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and effectively enforced by previous attorneys general.
Verizon – Verizon pushes porn into our homes now through hardcore pay-per-view movies on FIOS, smart phones, and tablets and as an Internet Service Provider with insufficient filtering options.
Sex Week – Yale and other colleges and universities repeatedly offer Sex Week on campus. Porn stars are routinely invited to lecture and pornography that glamourizes “fantasy rape” is screened.
Google – Google’s empire thrives on porn. Porn is easily available, even to children, through YouTube, GooglePlay, Google Images and Google Ads.
Tumblr – This popular social media blogging site bombards users with porn. Users must only be 13 and the filters do not work.
50 Shades of Gray – This bestselling book series and upcoming movie are normalizing sexual violence, domination, and torture of women. Oprah Winfrey Network, Broadway and other mainstream outlets have even promoted this abusive lifestyle.
Facebook – Facebook has become a top place to trade pornography, child pornography and for sexual exploitation. Facebook’s guidelines prohibit such behavior, but the company is doing little to enforce them.
Barnes & Noble – This Fortune 500 Company is a major supplier of adult pornography and child erotica. They regularly put pornography near the children’s sections in their stores and provide free, unfiltered porn publications on their Nook e-reader.
Hilton – This hotel chain, like Hyatt, Starwood and many other top hotel chains, provides hardcore pornography movie choices. Porn channels are often the first advertisement on their in-room TVs.
Playstation – PlayStation’s live-streaming abilities are filling thousands of homes with live porn and the PlayStation Store sells hundreds of pornographic and sexually violent games.
American Library Association – The ALA encourages public libraries to keep their computers unfiltered and allow patrons, including children, to access pornography.
Cosmopolitan Magazine – The magazine is a full-on pornographic, “how-to” sex guide, encouraging women to accept the pornified culture around them. They specifically market this content to teen girls.
The action that we choose to take whether it be in the form of letters, petitions, boycotts or donations will make a difference…this is a cause worth fighting. Spread the word!
