Your NO is Her HOPE: How Porn is Losing Its Grip

madewithover-22

Porn is losing its grip.  We are beginning to see it for what it is, and culture is responding.  Lately, it feels as if I’m seeing it everywhere, running into articles that point to this reality.  Articles like…

I used to get discouraged at the rate and statistics of porn.  But recently, I’ve found myself filled with HOPE.  It’s as if the conversation has taken a turn.  Secular culture and scientific research are both pointing to the detriments of porn, psychologically, relationally and societally.  It’s not just a moral issue for the religious “right”.  It’s something we must all acknowledge and fight, for the hope of tomorrow.

It’s becoming an accepted truth among experts and thoughtful citizens that as a fundamentally destructive addiction, porn is…

destroying a generation of young boys and girls

bringing heart-ache and dysfunction to a millions of marriages

-adding to the inability of men to function mentally, relationally and physically as they were created

– degrading women by putting forth a distorted view of our worth, beauty and sexuality, and heavily promoting acts of violence towards women

fueling the atrocity we all know as human trafficking.

So what can we do about it?  How can we further this movement towards hope?

I am friends with one of the executive directors at UnBound; an organization that aims to combat human slavery and ignite hope.  As a very practical out working of their vision, they have begun a campaign called “Your NO is Her HOPE”.

They have created a petition proposing that the government issue an internet block on porn sites.  It can be opted out of, if an adult so wishes.  It is a way we can ALL take a stand to stop the outrageous effects of porn on our children, our marriages, on the trafficking victims, and on our society as a whole.  Click HERE to sign.
