    It’s official: Pornography is a public health crisis. At least in Utah.

    The state proclaimed as much Tuesday after Gov. Gary Herbert (R) signed off on a resolution that deems pornography “a public health hazard” that can result in wide-ranging harm to individuals and society at large.

    “We hope that people hear and heed this voice of warning,” Herbert said at a signing ceremony. “For our citizens know that there are real health risks that are involved and associated with viewing pornography.”

    The resolution, passed through the state legislature, recognizes a need for education, research, prevention and changes to policy to address the issue.

    In his speech Tuesday, Herbert likened pornography to drugs and alcohol in its capacity to “tempt our youth.”

    “We also want our young people to know that there’s a particularly psychological and physiological detriment that comes from addiction to pornography,” he said.



    Todd Weiler, the resolution’s chief Senate sponsor, acknowledged the ridicule he received when he first unveiled the measure, which largely focuses on pornography’s impact on children.

    “When my resolution language went public last January, I was mocked and scorned on the media,” said Weiler, a Republican. News of the resolution made it as far as Vietnam, Croatia, Australia and England, he said. “The world is watching, but it’s time; it’s time that we stand up and take back our communities.”

    The resolution is non-binding and requires no public spending, so its impact rests on community action, Weiler said. Parents must make it safe for children to speak with them about pornography, he said. Communities must mobilize to limit its access, for example, in places that offer free wireless internet access.

    Probably so you can keep your hands busy doing something constructive, after all idle hands are the devil's workshop.
