    The M-Word

    Elder Neal A. Maxwell taught "A little pornography may not only lead to child and spouse abuse, but it slowly sucks out the marrow of self-esteem". Thomas S Monson taught, "Pornography is especially dangerous and addictive. Curious exploration of pornography can become a controlling habit, leading to coarser material and to sexual transgression." Gorden B Hinckley taught "“There is an ever-growing plague of pornography swirling about us. … Portrayals of sexual perversion, violence, and bestiality become increasingly available for those who succumb to their lures." A prophet is an expert in spiritual revelation because he can tell the difference between his own thoughts and the spirit. It is true a prophet can make a mistake, but it is impossible for many of them to make the same mistake in General Conference. Why? Because God controls his church. But if you want statistics look at the countries like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and China. In the four countries I just mentioned pornography is illegal and crime is low. The BYU encyclopedia of Mormonism says "Also, since much pornography depicts violence and aggression against females, it raises risks of conditioning viewers to sanction these as acceptable behavior. The best evidence suggests that all sexual deviations are learned, and pornography appears to be a major facilitator in the acquisition of these deviations." http://eom.byu.edu/index.php/Pornography Brother Pogi you are a porn addiction survivor. Can you please confirm if pornography depicts violence and aggression against females.

    How can I prove that masturbation is bad? Steve Densley Jr explains what is wrong with masturbation. You can read many stories online such as "My story, goals and side effects from excessive masturbation." There are recovery from masturbation forums. Blue Dreams, what evidence can I possibly share to convince you? Think about it. You are asking me to do the impossible.

    For the 1000th time I am not a troll, but you are not obligated to have a conversation with me. There is an "ignore" option. You can use it.

    What does that mean? Whatever I will continue to defend the truth of God. You are saying the right words at the right time.

    I am just following the words of my prophets. The foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom. I am not the only crazy one here, brother Hansen pointed out "This describes half the posters here". http://www.mormondialogue.org/topic/70261-the-enemies-of-the-church-are-wrong-again/?page=5

    I believe our heavenly father is guiding his church through revelation. Our prophets are experts in spiritual revelation so that means they can tell the difference between their own thoughts and the spirit. The church and the prophets have made it very clear about masturbation. If masturbation was good our loving heavenly father would have told us by now. All porn is bad including graphic sex education, romance novels, and magazines with women in two-piece swimsuits. That practice is unacceptable because it opens the door to pornography. If a spouse happens to be 17 it would be a serious felony. All married couples should stay away from that practice because it sends the wrong message to younger generations.

    The mentally disabled are not inferior. There is nothing wrong with having a disability. Our prophet Spencer W Kimball taught "“It i ridiculous to imply that pornography has no effect. There is a definite relationship to crime. Murder, robbery, rape, prostitution, and commercialized vice are fed on this immorality. Sex crime statistics seem to reflect a relationship between crime and pornography." Was Spencer W Kimball mentally disabled or just stupid? He couldn't tell the difference between his stupid ideas and spiritual revelation? Was Joseph Fielding Smith 14 years old when he was our living prophet?

    Our prophet Spencer W Kiball taught "“It is ridiculous to imply that pornography has no effect. There is a definite relationship to crime. Murder, robbery, rape, prostitution, and commercialized vice are fed on this immorality. Sex crime statistics seem to reflect a relationship between crime and pornography." I read the $5 an hour in a Youtube comment. I am looking for it so I can share it.

    Masturbation is toxic to our spiritual health. Pornography is the exact opposite to the gospel. The Gospel strengthens families, but pornography destroys them. We can read many testimonies in facebook on how the church has saved marriages. In addiction recovery forums we only read sad stories on how pornography destroyed a family. Pornography is a toxic problem and should be illegal. In recovery forums we can read stories of many survivors. The word survivor is appropriate because pornography is destructive. There is a link between the availability of pornography and the incidence of sexual assault. Our prophet Spencer W Kiball taught "“It is ridiculous to imply that pornography has no effect. There is a definite relationship to crime. Murder, robbery, rape, prostitution, and commercialized vice are fed on this immorality. Sex crime statistics seem to reflect a relationship between crime and pornography." You make an excellent point brother smac97. Please help me with Festus in the other thread. He is defending pornography, but we must fight back. We must fight back by defending the truth. http://www.mormondialogue.org/topic/70322-prohibition-yea-or-nay/?page=8

    I am confused. But if that is the case why do our prophets constantly remind us of the destructive power of pornography? Wouldn't pornography be much worse than everything else? Pogi you are an addiction survivor. Please respond to everything that Festus said. Yes tell that to our the new member Festus. Brother Bernard Gui, I can tell you are a very wise man. Please share your knowledge and tell Festus that pornography is very destructive.

    Is the Holy Ghost legitimate?

    People cannot blame the Holy Ghost. It is not his fault.

    But viewing pornography is much more serious than being a compulsive cleaner. Pornography is like the anti-gospel created by Satan. The Gospel of Jesus unites and strengthens families, but pornography destroys families. Sexual assault continues to rise because pornography is everywhere. 1 in 4 women working in the porn industry are raped. Women make five dollars an hour and have to work 16 hours every day. The porn industry is the most abusive industry in the world. How sorry I am. You are a pornography survivor. Be strong.

    Prohibition, Yea or Nay

    Pogi included " Any number of harmful coping behaviors (porn, drugs, alcohol, tv, video games, extra marital affairs, perfectionism or its opposite, hyper religiosity or it's opposite, over eating, under eating, obsessive behaviors, control freak, internet forum compulsion abusive behavior," I retract. Under eating and perfectionism are harmful behaviors. But tv, video games, hyper religiosity, and internet forums don't destroy families. You can't compare watching a lot of TV with pornography. Watching a lot of TV can be a problem, but pornography is a very serious destructive evil. Keep helping them with the gospel. Keep praying for them.

    End times doom and gloom

    So without a consensus how can you have a position? If there is no consensus it means there is a possibility that abortion can be just as bad as Infanticide.
