I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Showdown Over Pornography In 3rd Court Of Appeals

The most important showdown over pornography in years is happening currently in the 3rd District Court of Appeals. The champion for decency is Mary Beth Buchanan, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania. The champion for the porno industry is H. Louis Sirkin, a Cincinnati attorney representing Extreme Associates. The battle is the appeal of a decision by U.S. District Judge Gary L. Lancaster in January. He ruled there can be no restrictions on the distribution of porno, based upon the landmark decision of the Supreme Court case of Lawrence v. Texas, in which the court ruled that laws prohibiting same-sex sodomy are unconstitutional, Judge Lancaster wrote: "the government can no longer rely on the advancement of a moral code, preventing consenting adults from entertaining lewd or lascivious thoughts, as a legitimate, let alone compelling, state interest." !!!!!!!

In plain words, what this means is, "if they have the right to possess it in their homes, they have the right to buy it somewhere." This is truly an expansion of a porno agenda. What is next? "If they have the right to buy porno of 'rape, murder, women being defecated on, etc. then they have the right to produce it?" What has happened to the common sense of the courts in America? It is hard to believe that Judge Lancaster is serious. Has he lost his mind and become a "freak" himself or is he in the pocket of the porno industry?

Mary Beth Buchanan is appealing this outlandish ruling and leading the fight to stop this progressive erosion of the standards of this land. If we can't stop this here, we are in big trouble. The fabricated right to privacy in these manners is taking this full course. Please pray for Ms. Buchanan.

I will have to read up on this. I'm not sure how Lawrence v. Texas can be used to argue this case! It seems very bizarre...Very different set of issues in the cases, from what you have posted. I'll have to read up on this.

Oh okay. I see now. Interesting.

I need to take a step back here because I hate those movies. Hate them. I need to try to think about it with my legal mind after I have "cooled off" a bit so that I'm not clouded.
