What is it with the AmTaliban today – Sports Illustrated leads to porn addiction

Is the moon full? The Religious Right is unleashing a spewing geyser of stupidity today. (AgapePress)

…The president of Michigan’s American Decency Association is encouraging Christians not to stand by while disguised pornography gets a foothold through local checkout stands. Bill Johnson says now that the yearly Sports Illustrated ‘Swimsuit Edition’ is in retail outlets everywhere, it is an opportunity to let those stores know the magazine’s special edition does not agree with Christian standards and values. Johnson suggests believers ask store managers to remove the issue altogether or at least place it out of sight of young children coming through the stores. Also, he adds, ‘It’s important to tell the manager you’re a regular shopper and that you have other friends who, if they were made aware that the store is carrying this magazine, you’re certain they would stand together with you.’ Johnson says the kind of exhibition of women as sex objects that takes place in the popular sports magazine’s swimsuit issue should bother Christians, because that is the starting place for the lust that drives millions into eventual addiction to hardcore pornography.

Quite frankly, I think a lot of those Christians skip past the swimsuit issue and are ordering the hardcore porn right in the comfort of their homes. They are the sex-obsessed crowd.
