Porn kills love. Did you know that? It does. Porn is a drug. It’s addictive. It’s harmful. It’s bad for society. And it’s time to fight the new drug.
I am repeatedly amazed by my little brother and my two sisters. They are tenacious, they are brilliant, they are activists. And, they all have been involved with the Fight the New Drug group and campaign. My baby sister (not really a baby–she’s a senior in high school) started a Fight the New Drug club at her school and was spotlighted on their Instagram page as one of the 12 Days of Fighters representatives. All three of them (including my brother-in-law) wear a #PornKillsLove shirt often. My baby sister wears hers every Friday. (I don’t have a picture of all four of them together, because my sister got married while he was on his mission.)
I may not be much of an activist–I’ve never marched in a rally, I’ve never went door to door campaigning, I’ve never even donated to a cause. The most “active” I’ve ever been on a social issue was being indignant and sharing articles to social media. Yeah. I’m one of those Facebook and Twitter users. And, sometimes, I’m not proud of myself, especially when it comes to a specific “politician”. But, I digress.
Because this is important.
Because this issue is important.
Because this issue is prevalent.
Because this issue is normalized.
Because this issue is accepted.
Because this issue is glorified and Hollywood-ified.
Because this issue affects everyone: male, female, child, adult, black, white, Christian, Muslim, Republican, Democrat, American, European, Asian, African, rich, poor, smart, dumb. Everyone is affected.
Because this issue fights the very nature of family, the very nature of marriage.
Because this issue kills self-confidence, kills self-worth, kills interaction, kills courtship, kills intimacy, kills relationships, kills love.
Because porn is a drug and we are in an epidemic.
Today, I’m finally taking a stand. Today, I’m finally getting off my butt and doing something. Today, I’m following the example of my three younger siblings. Right now, I’m ordering my very own Porn Kills Love t-shirt. Once it gets here, I will proudly wear it every single Friday.
Because I will Fight the New Drug.
I’ll fight for my daughter who is so innocent. I’ll fight for my son who will grow up in a world of man-bashing.
I’ll fight for my husband who is my eternal companion. I’ll fight for the sacred covenants we made with each other and our God.
I’ll fight for the children of this nation that they can grow up more innocent and more loving and more understanding than generations before them.
I’ll fight for marriage, which is ordained of God.
I’ll fight for my God because I believe wholeheartedly in Him.
I’ll fight for women and anyone of any gender or sexual orientation.
I’ll fight for the #metoo epidemic.
I’ll fight for love because #pornkillslove.
I’ll fight for me, my self-confidence, my self-image, my self-worth, my Divine Nature, my Integrity, my soul.
Will you join me and Fight the New Drug?
