Tell legislators to crack down on pornography
To the editor:
On a radio talk show, Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, discussed the recent abduction of a young girl in California. He said that whenever the abductor was captured, a search of his home or computer would surely uncover pornography of some sort.
After reading a lengthy article from the Los Angeles Times, I found one small paragraph at the end of the article that mentioned, almost as an afterthought, pornographic films discovered in the home of the abductor who brutally raped and murdered that lovely little girl.
I would submit to the liberal media, civil libertarians, the ACLU, the Hollywood crowd and all those who would include the pervasion of pornography under the umbrella of the First Amendment that this little girl, among many others, would be alive and well today if it were not for this blight on our society.
I say enough is enough. If our Supreme Court will not outlaw this trash, then we have a legislative branch of our government that can solve this problem if we will insist on it.
From a Christian perspective, it is too bad we have refused God's instructions concerning our families, our marriages and our lifestyles. Please wake up, America.
