The New Puritans and Porn - "One Weird Country"

America's Public and Private Faces
*
This excerpt is from an essay by Anne Taylor Fleming who appears as a guest comentator on the NewsHour (PBS).

"This is one weird country. You can't help but think that sometimes. We tolerate our own contradictions, our own, if you will, hypocrisies, certainly when it comes to sex. Adamantly churchgoing and God-believing, we can talk family values in public while watching porn in private. There are, in fact, programs just to help preachers who are self-confessed pornography addicts -- sick, sad, troubling, laughable, and I guess hopeful all at the same time."

Reflections by Anne Taylor Fleming.

Comments:
Musafir, thanks once again for the link. The author makes a very valid point when she states that our fascination with sex reaches to ALL people and no group can claim any moral high ground!!


Even the first lady admits to watching Desperate Housewives! Although, I think it is more reality for her than she would like it to be!!!
