I would argue that porn has done far more good in society than places where such places and cultures are forbidden to have it.


Cracked me up.

After Saddam was taken out - - - first thing vendors brought out from under the counter was porn.

Not to mention the power behind the porn industry. That's like messing with the Mafia.


More than just that
He is going after things he finds morally reprehensible. porn is the easy target..you can dismiss someone by simply calling them a perv or something.
Then violent entertainment
then what next? anti-governmental speech? anything even remotely gay? dresses that are above the kneecap? etc...

Isn't Santorum's ''selling point'' the fact that he is a religious fundamentalist ?

Bearing in mind that large swathes of Republican voters echo his more ''robust'' thoughts, then his bizarre diatribes should come as no surprise.

It's pretty simple:

Romney > Santorum

Obama > Romney

4 more years for Obama - at a canter.

That was my point
I have been around the world actually, seen many places. My passport looks like a wall of a tattoo parlor.

I noticed one thing. Wherever porn is forbidden, are places that..well...truely sucked...
I said this to a south african friend when travelling around...you can tell if a place is alright if you see plenty of porn. heh

OMG - when I was in high school we had to kneel on the bleachers - - - with some "holier then thou" teacher looking up from the floor.

If anything "flesh colored" showed - - you got sent to the principles office for a lecture on decency.

That was 40+ years ago folks.

Santorum is insane - - and anyone who votes for him is insane.

It is very disturbing that he is getting votes.

Porn and the objectification of women is the real "war on women", and it's perpetrated by women themselves.

Yes, its a pity women are too stupid and nieve to know that men find them sexy when they do that. We really should make rules so those poor nieve women don't accidently objectify themselves.

You don't see guys in these porns...cause, you know...we are not that stupid. nope, not a single wang anywhere to be seen in porn.

I am having the time of my life with the display of emotions, lies and crap that is coming out of the mouth of the corporate whores running for president

I am surprised that he is no calling himself born again Christian like many others.

He is trying to reach the fundamentalist religious freaks out there that find sin on anything but air unless you are farting.

He is nothing but another corporate whore and while he wants porn out of the bedrooms of adult Americans he have not problem giving favors and whoring for the corporate elite for the right amount of money.

He is not going anywhere but when it comes to kissing up to religious right he is just one of the others.

No, because drunk driving causes actual damage and death.
strawman..shame on you.


And pornography does not? Let us consider that physical is not the only form of damage which can be caused; factor in psychological, emotional, and spiritual. Simply because wounds cannot be physically observed through your senses, does not mean it is any less important. As for death, I agree that pornography does not cause death and that my analogy was not a perfect one but I was rushing.


Actually, it doesn't matter if your convinced or not..can't argue numbers and simple facts.
You can not believe in facts, hell, you don't have to believe in gravity..but that doesn't mean it isn't true


I was not attempting to argue against your numbers and facts. They are presumably true. My point was not whether or not the facts are accurate but whether we should even consider those facts in drawing our conclusions about the net good. For example, we could say that cloning is a technological breakthrough resulting from years of scientific progress; but does that make cloning (human cloning I mean) a net good? It violates the natural order of things, thus the natural good, so it is a net harm.


Rape has been the staplemark of all civilizations since the dawning of time.


Not all civilizations, but yes it has been a frequent event, experiencing highs and lows, for thousands of years. My point was that under our more civilized Christendom it was at its lowest point in history. The Cultural Revolution served to raise its rate of incidence.

One thing that the sex revolution has allowed is for people to not feel ashamed about it.


And I give credit where credit is due. There are a few, very few, positive attributes which have resulted from the Cultural Revolution; this being one of them.


Rape is a crime of power, not passion. A person whom wants to simply get off...well, they got porn for that.
A person whom wants to control a situation and another, to harm a woman based on whatever is going on in their past, they will rape, fight, or otherwise do harm to another.
No, I don't blame rape on women being too sexy. I am sorry if you do.


How did I blame it on women “being too sexy”? I never once said that just because a woman is beautiful she is asking to be raped. My remark was pertaining to those women who wear, as I said in my previous post, ‘promiscuous dress’. Even then they do not want to be raped. It is like when you hear a story of a man being hit by a bus after walking into traffic, you do not say that he wanted to get hit by a bus or that he deserved to be hit by the bus, rather that if you walk in traffic, do not be surprised if a bus hits you.

ALL women have to suffer from living in a culture that objectifies women. They are not only affecting themselves.

Porn largely caters to men. And despite PC dogma, men and women do NOT have equal sexualities.

Yes they do.

People like money. Women like money.

Have you seen the women in porn today? They're HOT!

I think some of them could teach: "Business 101 (at least)

I can't believe he is that naive/stupid. He alienated a lot of women because of his views on contraceptives and abortion. The same will happen with men on this issue. Who is left for him to alienate?
Yet another reason he will never be president.


Who is left for him to alienate?

this just in, Rick has now alienated Puerto Ricans...

Thank you Santorum, for being so concerned about my privates and wanting to dictate to me what I can think of and view in the privacy of my own home.

You know...this whole social conservatism thing..not a big fan overall



Rick Santorum declares war on pornography: I will ban hardcore porn if I’m elected President

"America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography," the former Pennsylvania senator writes. "It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking."

He demands a crackdown on the distribution of hardcore pornography on the Internet, in addition to material on cable/satellite TV, hotel/motel TV, retail shops and through the mail.

What qualifies as "hardcore" remains unclear.

Sour ce

First it was illegal porn, now its make all hardcore porn illegal, then you enforce it. shut off the net with any naughty bits showing, etc.

How is this guy basically the frontrunner for conservatives? Seriously...someone explain to me the thinking going on here for a fan of Santorum whom also has even a slight understanding of "life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness" Does that only apply if you have social conservative Amish style values, otherwise, too bad?

Get out of my bedroom!



This is an easy one.

Greed is certainly an evil.

Most women in the sex industry have a history of sexual abuse and are far more likely than other women to suffer from mental illness.

Here's reality. Most women play the game of attracting a male. Fortunately - - today - - we can be real about it.


Porn largely caters to men. And despite PC dogma, men and women do NOT have equal sexualities.


I don't know about that. Women have been so suppressed about being sexual - - - I'm not sure what the real facts are.

I know when I was single - - I had men specifically for the Bootie Call - - - not to be the father of my children.

Also - - IMO - - a lot of women like female porn. A lot of women like to see women.
