“Utah lawmakers took a bold step in the final minutes of the 2016 Legislative Session. Late Friday night, the Utah House of Representatives passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health crisis. The resolution is the first of its kind in the country.

“Society must see this evil like the epidemic it is,” said Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, member of the LDS Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “This ought to be seen like a public health crisis, like a war, like an infectious fatal epidemic, like a moral plague on the body politic that is maiming the lives of our citizens.”

On Saturday, Elder Holland and other community leaders met at a conference organized by the Utah Coalition Against Pornography to speak out against what they call a growing epidemic as dangerous as an infectious disease.”

  • What is it with this dogma that our state and federal governments keeps stuffing down our throats? Just like video games, porn is in no way harmful in any way, shape, or form, and as such, is not a public health crisis. Again, what is it with these false truths lately?

  • Elder Holland is an ancient fossil old religious guy. Mormon dogma is that sex is just for married people, and masturbation is a sin. The vibe also is that the leaders don't really approve of recreational sex between married people, either. Birth control for married people isn't really a policy position, but it's understood that you're supposed to have a ton of kids if possible. The Mormon-dominated state government nixes any kind of comprehensive sex education as well, of course. Kids are left ignorant of it generally. Adults are so sexually repressed that they go to porn to a great degree, and this so dismays the Mormon leaders! They want people to just forget about sex except for making babies. These guys can't figure out why it's so difficult! (Because the top leaders are all in their 80's and 90's, probably.)

  • I don't need porn as long as I have Ana Kasparian to look at.

    John Westcott April 22, 2016 8:38 pm
  • get it straight, porn is not sex, mormons like sex, haven´t you notice how many kids we have, thought you knew that kids come from sexual intercourse, porn is not sex, lack of dopamine leads to others illnesses.

  • I stopped watching porn and I get much harder boners now. It's like I no longer "get off" using my eyes but the feeling. Sex feels so much better now.

  • I see what you did there with BANNING SM*UT*…. was there an internal debate between that and "Banning Smutah"?

  • You can take my money. You can take my freedom. But you will never take our PORN!

  • You can't make porn illegal. It's just not possible. Mankind to accomplish will need to destroy every computer hard drive and external storage device in the world. Men will never give up their porn!

  • We need to be promoting the idea that religion is a mental illness issue. Why are we still pretending this is okay? We are enabling paranoid schizophrenics.

  • I wouldn't want to be part of any organization that's led by something called "The Quorum of the Twelve". It sounds like the title of an H.P. Lovecraft book.

  • Let's see now.  You can eat yourself into an early grave, right?  And you can drink yourself to death.  You can work yourself to death.  And you can smoke yourself to death.  About the only thing you can't do is screw yourself to death.  Who ever said the Mormons were rational?

  • Mormons and their sexual ''suppression'' and oppression is the root cause of all these

    Kenny Ken April 22, 2016 8:38 pm
  • Mormons think everything is addiction. If you drink a couple of drinks a week you're addicted to alcohol, if you smoke pot occasionally you're a drug addict, if you look at porn sometimes you're addicted to porn. They have no sense of propriety.

    D Mc April 22, 2016 8:38 pm
  • Proof that mormons think they OWN Utah and that mormonism is the ultimate 'cliques'. Is there another state, in 2016, run as close to a theocracy?

    "+superlativeOFgood Think? We know we own Utah. The Mormon pioneers built it thank you!"

    +Cody Patino Thank you, Cody, for making my point.

  • Porn is harmful to your mental well being. It's also degrading and exploitative of women, but watching it is bad for your health. It conditions you to be aroused by violence and domination. TYT is ignorant about the harmful effects of porn, or they just don't care about women

    ally Dee April 22, 2016 8:38 pm
  • so Mormons are hugely into porn and gangster rap? wonder if I am Mormon and didn't know it?

  • Just in case you think that these four vapid airheads haven't got a clue about the pernicious evil that is internet porn, listen to this talk by Professor Gail Dines at a conference in Poland. Unlike these TYT magpies, Dr. Dines knows is qualified to speak on this subject as a researcher, sociologist, and freminist. Here's the speech: v=s8USJkWzT4c
