New research reveals porn is causing far greater harm to society

  8/9/2015

A few weeks ago, a group of researchers revealed that pornography is far worse than anyone thought.

It turns out that greater access to pornography deteriorates society’s moral standard, increases the depravity of the mind (1 Rom 28) and causing more and more people to lose interest in getting married or raising children – which leads to the reproduction rate dropping below replacement – and the nation to die out.   Of course, this is part of global rejection of Christ.

Along the way, more young girls with few options are hunted down in nations that have them and drawn into sex-trafficking.

“A recent gathering of experts pointed out that the harms from pornography are far worse than they’ve ever been, and the damage is not just impacting children, but spilling into all of society.

Speaking to a standing-room-only crowd in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in mid-July, Dr. Gail Dines dispelled the myth that pornography today is like the pin-up of yesteryear. Rather, today’s mainstream pornography is unbelievably dehumanizing, degrading, and violent. She cited a peer-reviewed study that found that 88 percent of the scenes in the 50 most popular porn films involved violence against women. Pornography is not about sex, she said, but about “making hate to women.””

“Speaking at the same event, Cordelia Anderson … pointed to research indicating that nearly all young boys have been exposed to pornography. It isn’t enough to protect your own children any longer when their peers have had violent pornography normalized in their minds. The impact has become public, and its damage has seeped everywhere.”

“Dr. Melissa Farley examined the link between pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking. And Ed Smart, whose daughter Elizabeth made national news when she was abducted in 2002, explained how pornography played a role in his daughter’s enslavement and sexual torture.”

The heart of the problem of sex-trafficking is pornography, but that is a difficult fight to target the well-funded industry.   Christian ministries are starting to get involve.  Compelled by terrible storied, but unwilling to get into a political fight with the pornography industry, they find themselves trying to help the victims that have already suffered by funding sex-traffic rescue centers.  

These rescues ministries are doing great work, but the pornography industry continue to grow along with the number of young girls being targeted.  It would take real courage to stop sex-trafficking at the front end and take the fight to the pornography industry.
