Religion is More Harmful to Children than Porn
The religious republicans are at it again.
Today, the Supreme Court, once again, stopped the religious republicans from enforcing COPA, the so-called Child Online Protection Act, intended to "protect" children from internet porn.
Just how much harm is done to a young boy looking at naked women? Most young boys have a strong desire to get a peek at a Playboy magazine and most succeed. Have they been irreparably damaged?
If the religious republicans succeed in enforcing this nonsense, then rational people everywhere should hire a good lawyer, like Mike Newdow for example, to sue web sites that promote religion on the grounds that it causes serious psychological damage to children.
What could possibly be more damaging to a child than telling him over and over from the time he's an infant that there exists an invisible person who is unwilling to prove he exists watching him every second of every day and reading his thoughts and if he doesn't believe in the invisible person he will be tortured for eternity? Yet we tell that same child that monsters don't exist so it's silly to be scared of monsters.
