Pornberra?

By threeze 15 August 2007 50

I noticed a bunch of protesters on Canberra Ave this afternoon all holding up (badly drawn) banners with “HONK IF YOU HATE PORN” and “PORN IS HATE SPEECH” and “CLOSE DOWN PORNBERRA”.

I can only imagine it has something to do with this, but does anyone know any more?

Seems a bit far-fetched to me to blame indigenous child abuse entirely on porn. Have there been similar protests at Lion Nathan or Carlton breweries?

What’s Your opinion?

Well, at least we now know that Kevin Rudd will have no problems with living in the lodge.

After all, Mitchell is not that far away.

Someone told me that a few years back, one of the top 10 search terms on Google for a couple of days was “Lisa simpson porn”. Interesting.

I love porn. More power to it.

Giddy up.

What about a Pampalona (sorry if that’s not how it’s spelled, can’t be bothered googling it) style lion run in Canberra? Not restricted to Christians but a general lion run?

Could help to get all those overweight/obese children in Canberra that the commercial news networks were going on about this week.

I occasionally watch question time in parliament on the telly. It escalates my desire to make snide, argumentative comments and show no interest in achieving any useful outcome.

I think it’s time to bring back Christians vs Lions on a Sunday afternoon. A fun afternoon that the whole family can enjoy.

Manuka Oval would be a good venue.

“Jim Wallace, the managing director from the Australian Christian Lobby, earlier said the myth that pornography didn’t harm society was a lie”

What bothers me is how people use the term “myth” to describe a thing that some people think. A myth is a really old story, usually about some dude slaying a magic thing with a sword or a rock. And they’re never true so saying “the myth is a lie” is sort of stupid.

alephnull, you idiot.
There is plenty of evidence supporting this “hypothesis”.

I and the evidence are not saying that modern media causes these people to commit violent and/or sexual crimes. But it is arguably making them more likely to actually move from fantasy to reality and actually do these things, and it may very well be making crimes more serious. Just look at all the recent gang rapes that have occurred and being taped on mobile phones for distribution among groups of people, or even worse, on video sharing sites such as YouTube. One would have to wonder whether these crimes would have kept on occurring if not for “modern media”
