    Utah officially declared pornography a “public health crisis” in a resolution Governor Gary Herbert signed at the state capitol in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. The text of the resolution claims that porn has a “detrimental” effect on brain function, contributes to “emotional and medical illnesses,” and gives rise to “deviant sexual arousal.” State senator Todd Weiler introduced the resolution in January; it passed the state legislature—unanimously!—in March. “Weiler maintains that the resolution is not a ban on porn or an attack on masturbation,” USA Today reported.

    So, a curious Utahn might ask, what is it? It says Utah needs “education, prevention, research, and policy change at the community and societal level,” but it does nothing it provide those things, nor does it offer any evidence for the claims it makes. It’s a nonbinding, symbolic measure to legislate morality and shame Utah residents for seeking out a product that most people consume at some point without ill effects.

    The resolution is also a response to the menace of a porn-addiction epidemic, a myth perpetuated by the Mormon church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints calls porn addiction “a plague like we have never seen” in a video that says porn “destroys lives.” “[God] knew about pornography, that this would be the plague of our day,” a Mormon church official says in the video. Utah is home to a growing number of counseling facilities and treatment centers specializing in porn addiction. They teach that there is no acceptable amount of porn to watch; anyone who consumes porn is considered an addict. Utah’s new anti-porn resolution contains language that echoes the doomsday predictions the Mormon church: “Pornography equates violence towards women and children with sex and pain with pleasure, which increases the demand for sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse images, and child pornography,” the resolution reads. “Pornography use is linked to lessening desire in young men to marry, dissatisfaction in marriage, and infidelity.”

    Utah is a beautiful state. But weird. If you order a drink in a bar, they make the drink but don't put in the alcohol. They give you one of those little airplane bottles and you have to mix it yourself.

    I made it through 2 min of that video, people are crazy. I garan-fucking-tee that if those assholes back in the day Jesus was around had movies/pictures/internet, even jedus would be looking at it. I would say porn helps keep marriages together more than rips them apart
