Somehow between feeling up their granddaughters, spanking the monkey and boinking their secretaries(both male and female) Don Wildmon and the American Family Association have found time to get their thongs in a knot over another crisis facing America. I kid you not, they are lobbying Congress over U.S. troops’ access to adult materials.
Ten years after Congress banned sales of sexually explicit material on military bases, the Pentagon is under fire for continuing to sell adult fare, such as Penthouse and Playmates In Bed, that it doesn’t consider explicit enough to pull from its stores.
Dozens of religious and anti-pornography groups have complained to Congress and Defense Secretary Robert Gates that a Pentagon board set up to review magazines and films is allowing sales of material that Congress intended to ban.
“They’re saying ‘we’re not selling stuff that’s sexually explicit’ … and we say it’s pornography,” says Donald Wildmon, head of the American Family Association, a Christian anti-pornography group. A letter-writing campaign launched Friday by opponents of the policy aims to convince Congress to “get the Pentagon to obey the law,” he adds.
I must be missing something here. American soldiers both male and female are fighting two wars and dying in each thanks to the incompetent leadership of Bush and company. Both wars are being lost and our boys and girls are dying and being mutilated daily and the American Family Association’s biggest concern is what kind of magazines the troops can purchase on base?
Let me explain the reality...those wearing the uniform and putting their lives on the line for their country can read anything they want! If they want to see naked ladies, naked men or Goddess forbid naked ladies and men together on the same page possibly pretending to have sex then go for it boy and girls. It is none of the christianist's business even if the magazines show the Apostle Paul strapping on Jesus or Jesus going down on Mary Magdalene. None of your fucking business people.
If they are so worried that someone, somewhere might have some fun then maybe they should spend some time getting their holier than thou preacher's hands out of the pants of the Sunday School kids.
