There is a lot of focus these days on the issue of homosexuality — not because it’s worse than other sexual abnormalities, but because it’s the one such abnormality that is currently being loudly proclaimed as “normal.” The simple reality, though, is that homosexuality is no more an “orientation” than pedophilia, porn addiction, or any other sexual issue. Rather, it is just one of many directions in which sexuality can be “bent” early in a person’s life.
The headline in yesterday’s Rapid City Journal says it all: Spencer’s ends sales of adult items. This unexpected action by the giant corporation — Spencer’s Gifts LLC — is a testimony to the positional strength of Rapid City’s Adult Orientated Business Ordinance (AOB). In 2003 the Rapid City voters overwhelmingly approved restrictions on AOB’s. This was done in order to protect our community’s children from the destructive nature of pornography. Our community standards were set in place and our city officials have been diligent in the enforcement of them.
Pastor Dale Bartscher of the Family Heritage Alliance says the city of Rapid City did the right thing in seizing the sexually-oriented materials at a local Spencer’s Gifts store. The materials were in violation of an Adult Oriented Business ordinance passed by Rapid City in 2003, and the city made numerous attempts to resolve the issue with Spencer’s Gifts before taking the action.
Turn on the TV. Take a stroll in the store. Go to church and you’ll see it: Females dressing as though the new fad is straight “hooker.” That may be a little crass, but seriously, when you pick up a magazine or just try to watch the news, you’re bombarded with an obscene amount of skin. Sex sells, so they say. And “they” be right. The only thing that has even a smidge of marketability the way a barely clothed woman will is a puppy. And puppies don’t wear any clothes.
The South Dakota Family Policy Council’s 2010 voter guide is now available online and possibly coming to a church near you. The guide asked several questions of South Dakota state candidates and SD federal candidates. This article looks at the answers to 16 questions from South Dakota gubernatorial and legislative candidates.
Pop music star Lady Gaga admits that “the last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.” Yet the content of Gaga’s music and videos is far from kid-friendly, and the impact on her young female fans is particularly troublesome. Her own performances constitute a foray into porn culture.
MassResistance has posted a copy of the flyer the Boston Alliance for Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth (BAGLY) is giving out to children in the Boston area. This “Reality Condom” is, as indicated, designed to maximize the “pleasure” of anal sex while providing the illusion of “safe sex.” I know many of you will find this very distasteful to read, but ignorance is one of the greatest allies of the homosexual agenda.
In addition to the fundamental injustice of socialist wealth redistribution, there are practical and fiscal responsibility problems that come with the welfare state. Those became evident in this fresh report of welfare recipients spending millions of taxpayer-funded charity dollars in casinos and strip joints.
The public is familiar with the statistics and are well aware that pornography is the biggest industry in the world and the most consumed media worldwide. But most never hear about the young girl who was curled up in a ball between takes in the production of a porn film, sucking her thumb because her mind was so blown by what she did.
Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council released on Wednesday a new study detailing the effects of pornography on marriages, children and individuals. “This is a ground-breaking review of what pornography costs families trying to create a life together,” said Dr. Pat Fagan, who authored the study and serves as FRC’s senior fellow and director of the Center for Research on Marriage and Religion.
I have previously argued that we, as a community, have both an interest and responsibility to prepare, promote, and preserve every marriage within the body. There are many factors that contribute to the demise of marriages within the church, but there is one in particular whose virulence and force is made worse by our isolation and indifference to community: pornography.

If you’re sane, when you heard that the Vermont legislature had decided to allow homosexuals to call their unions “marriage,” you probably thought something like, “Man, the Vermont legislature must be morally bankrupt.” If you did, now there’s more proof that you were right. According to WCBSTV, Vermont legislators now want to make sexting legal. […]

President Barack Obama has had trouble with several of his nominations since taking office. Several of his nominees have had issues with taxes, ethics, and more. But some of the people Obama wants to serve in the Justice Department–the department charged with upholding the nation’s laws–may be the most disturbing. For a number of years […]
The evening before his execution 20 years ago, Bundy told Dr. James Dobson how violent pornography had laid the foundation for his crimes.

If you’re like me, you don’t put a lot of stock into anything that comes out of the National Enquirer. After all, that publication, through some of it’s own wild stories, has developed a reputation for being not much better than the rags that routinely report on the goings-on of the “bat boy” and UFO […]
