14 thoughts on “Is Porn Protected by the First Amendment?

  1. It is twisted world where Preachers are arrested for hate speech when they preach against Sodomites, etc, yet Pornography is covered by the First Amendment?

    A suggestion: A class action law suit by women against the Porn Industry that this is in fact hate speech against them. Let the scripture apply that says “the wicked is caught in his own snare”. Either they can shut down the porn industry or our liberal government will repeal hate speech laws.

    • Sodomites, hu? that was a hell of an intellectual response. Ill let you know every day this country is moving farther and farther away from the oppressive religious right, in to a society where people are free to be as they were created, with out having the fear of persecution and murder by god fearing people. it is not a perfect society but it is slowly improving, and censorship would only hinder the progress.

  2. Probation did not work as is evidenced in history, nor will censorship. There will always be an underground network that will only make some people richer and many poorer. Taxing the industry is a solution, we tax booze and it brings in millions. We have been taxing gambling for decades, Govt. is just now figuring out taxing pot is another boon to the economy, so will taxing porn. Face reality, life’s not perfect, there will always be greed and thus quick ways to make illegal money, thus there will always be vices, there will always be crime, censorship will only make it more inviting and an even more criminal act. Then we have to prosecute the violators and house them in prisons, costing us even more money. Look at all the people in jail for dealing in pot and now pot is becoming legal. just tax them and keep enormous profits out of the industry and eventually it will shrink up to where it isn’t profitable to be in the industry.

  3. I appreciate all you have done on this.
    The internet is seen by children and aduldts. this should have never happen.
    PORN IS ADDICTIVE IT IS TAKING OVER THE MINDS. OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS. RAPE IS ALL ACROSS USA. PORN HELPS THIS .WOMEN IN THE ARMY AND NAVY ARE RAPE DAILY.
    PORN STARS ARE RUINED, THEY GET SICK AND DIED SOMETIMES KILLED.THEY WILL NEVER FIND A TRUE LOVE.THE PORN BUSINESS SHOULD PAY FOR ALL THEIR ILLNESSES AND FUNERAL EXPENSES. A FEDERAL AND STATE TAX NEEDS TO BE APPLIED TO ALL PORN TO PAY FOR LIVES THEY HAVE RUINED..

  4. I don’t think porn is protected under the First Amendment. Also, driving or riding around in an automobile is not better that making porn. Bumper stickers do no good. Why should I agree with your bumper sticker when you are polluting my air?

  5. The government should absolutely have no right to determine what I do in the privacy of my home. You want to stop child pornography, go get the guys who produce it. I feel like being an American, in a free democratic society, I have the right to look at anything I want in the privacy of my home, especially if it is channeled into my home and someone is making a profit The only thing that should be censored is child pornography. To censor and take control of the rest of the adult pornography and tell me I cannot watch it in my home is an infringement of my rights as an American. Just think, I CANNOT WATCH WHAT EVERYONE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH IS DOING, EVERYONE! EVERYONE IS HAVING SEX, THAT’S HOW YOU GOT HERE! It is not exactly morally right, but if it is allowed to be channeled into my home, by the government, I AM GOING TO WATCH IT, IF I CHOOSE TO! You don’t have to agree….

    • Hello B.J. I’ve approved your comment with an edit of your final statement to make it more constructive for our blog. Opinions are welcomed, as long as they don’t violate our “general insensitivity” or “harsh language” guidelines.

      Also, for the sake of argument, can you please elaborate for me why you think child pornography should be censored, while other types of porn are ok? Just curious about your thinking there.

      Thanks – Chris

    • Hi B.J. – another comment. If you are a Christian, who is “in Christ” (1 Cor 1:30), offering your life as a living sacrifice, how is watching porn leading your towards holiness? Can I invite you to see this through the eyes of faith, instead of through the eyes of our Constitution?
