ORLANDO, Fla. — Numerous people are waging war in the fight against pornography and its negative impact on mainstream culture that's seeping into the Church. The Christian Post is highlighting just seven notable figures who are combating the pervasive porn culture that's hurting families and destroying lives.
1. Donna Rice Hughes: As the CEO and president of Enough is Enough, Hughes has dedicated much of her life to protecting children from Internet pornography. Since the mid-1990s, she's given over 4,500 media interviews on issues such as Internet pornography, the sexting phenomenon, and sexual predators. more >>
ORLANDO, Fla. — Victoria Hearst, granddaughter of media legend William Randolph Hearst, has slammed Cosmopolitan magazine for its pornographic content and disdain for Christians, especially those who adhere to biblical values.
Speaking at the second annual Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit on Saturday, Hearst said the magazine originally "started as a family magazine," noting that it was her grandfather's first magazine. But then, according to her, it was hijacked by feminist activist Helen Gurley Brown.
"This is not a family feud," said Hearst. "We are not trying to censor the magazine. Just label it as an adult magazine and don't sell it to kids," she exclaimed. more >>
ORLANDO, Fla. — Sexual exploitation of children will never end unless fathers start taking a stand against pornography. But in a culture that promotes the over sexualization of youth, fathers are noticeably absent.
"Where are you dads?" asked Brigham Young University professor Tim Rarick during an emotional address at the second annual Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit last week.
"Dads are the absent super heroes in this battle of sexual exploitation. Where is our superman? he asked. more >>
Radio host and television personality Glenn Beck has said that American Christians must do more to help suffering refugees, particularly Christians who are being persecuted and targeted by terrorism, warning that otherwise the Statue of Liberty "means nothing anymore."
"We're having to bring those people out and send them to different countries because the Statue of Liberty means nothing anymore," Beck said at The Crossing Church in Tampa, Florida, as reported by The Blaze on Sunday.
"Tell me about the tired, the poor, the huddled masses. Tell me about the tempest-tossed if it's not those Christians now. And we've closed our doors. We will transplant entire Muslim Somali communities, and we'll pick up the entire community and plant it in Minneapolis-St. Paul. But we will not take the Christians that are being beheaded, that are being slaughtered, that are being enslaved. We're turning our back on those people." more >>
ORLANDO – The Church needs to talk more about sex, because the Bible teaches much about the subject, instead of avoiding hard issues like sexual brokeness and pornography addiction, says Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in North Carolina, on Saturday.
"We have got to get over the reticence to talk about sex and talk about what the Bible teaches about sex," declared Land at the 2nd Annual Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit in Orlando, "because the Bible teaches a great deal about sex."
Land called for an accurate assessment of where the Church is today on this issue and denounced Christians and those in ministry for avoiding the issue of sexual brokenness and pornography. more >>
ORLANDO, Fla. — Clay Olsen, co-founder and CEO of Fight the New Drug, told hundreds gathered for an anti-pornography conference that he's seeing hundreds of thousands of young people rising up to demand an end to sexual exploitation of women.
"We have seen a movement of young people rallying around ending exploitation of women," Olson said. "We are seeing hundreds of thousands of youth get behind this and we are just getting started."
Olsen noted that the millennial generation is generally less trusting than their predecessors, but at the same time they are the generation that trusts science the most. more >>
