A state with a national reputation for wholesomeness is taking aim at a medium with quite a different reputation: the pornography industry.

Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert is planning to sign two pieces of legislation on Tuesday that aim to combat what's called "a sexually toxic environment" caused by porn.

One is a resolution and one is a bill:
-- S.C.R. 9 Concurrent Resolution on the Public Health Crisis.
This resolution declares that pornography is "a public health hazard leading to a broad spectrum of individual and public health impacts and societal harms."
The resolution claims Utah would be the first state in the nation to make such a declaration.
It cites what is says are numerous detrimental effects of porn, including the treatment of "women as objects and commodities for the viewer's use."
Cough, cough, Mormon, cough, cough.

Porn has been associated with psychological issues, sexual dysfunction, and social isolation.

Perhaps you should research stuff before declaring it as harmless. :shrug:

Porn addiction can be a problem. But you can get addicted to basically anything. Better just ban life entirely as we live in bubbles doing nothing.

Porn is definitely what we need to be worrying about!

It keeps some people busy, oh wait, that did not come out right at all, never mind.
 
Porn does not need to be sold at stores.

that is why the Internet was created, for personal viewing, at home, with your dog watching....

True, but problems associated with watching excessive amounts of porn is only part of the problem.

So what are the other problems with it that warrants the outrage many religious people take with it?
