A few days ago, Politico Magazine ran a story called How the GOP Gave Up on Porn:
“The Year Was 1976. Republicans were reeling from Watergate. Christian conservatives were defecting to the Democratic Party. And Jerry Falwell, the Virginia preacher with a booming Baptist congregation and a popular radio show, decided he could no longer sit on the sidelines as he saw American culture succumbing to the creeping forces of secularism. The precipitating event was an interview given by Jimmy Carter, in which the Democratic presidential nominee admitted to having “looked on a lot of women with lust,” and “committed adultery in my heart many times.” Carter had never acted on such temptation, he implied, but the admission kept him humble: “Christ says, don’t consider yourself better than someone else because one guy screws a whole bunch of women while the other guy is loyal to his wife.” …”
Meanwhile, this is what is going on in Israel right now:
“The Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday unanimously approved a bill forcing Israeli internet providers to censor pornography by default — a move the bill’s proponents claim aims to clamp down on rampant underage access to adult content online.
Under the terms of the bill, users who want to opt out of the censorship in order to access pornography online would be required to notify their service providers either in writing, by phone, or via the service provider’s website.
The committee’s vote to green-light the measure means the bill will now head to the Knesset to start the process of legislative approval. …”
I don’t even have to say who is the biggest promoter of pornography and sexual deviancy in the United States or who is the biggest supporter of refugee resettlement or who is the biggest enemy of ethnonationalism. Israelis and American Jews are at odds on lots of issues though. Haaretz has criticized both the pornography ban and the ethnostate bill.
