I want to propose a petition to Save Sex in Kansas, after reading this:
Kansas.com | 07/16/2007 | Grand juries to determine what’s obscene
OLATHE, Kan. – Separate grand jury investigations in two Kansas counties are expected to decide what’s too obscene for businesses to sell.
In the next several weeks, the jurors could decide what is and what isn’t obscene, setting standards for their Kansas communities. The jurors could be asked to watch adult videos, review adult toys, or even take field trips to the businesses.
“We don’t know yet what they’re going to want to see,” said Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome Gorman. “Each community has to answer for itself what it will tolerate.”
The petitions in the six counties, including Jackson, Clay, Platte and Cass on the Missouri side and Johnson and Wyandotte in Kansas, ask the courts to look at strip clubs, sex shops and video rental stores.
Honestly, National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families, I wish you’d look at things that cause real harm to children. Drug abuse. Improperly stored guns. Homelessness. Starvation. Gang mentality. Somehow I don’t think adult products in adults-only shops are all that harmful to children. Leave everyone else’s sex lives alone; don’t you realize that the stronger you protest, the more you reveal about yourselves? You’re so afraid and so threatened and we understand that — but quit taking it out on the rest of us.
We’re not fooled, y’know. We can tell you’re not God. You’re a Christian organization ignoring Jesus’ message to love thy neighbor, turn the other cheek, cast no stones and let God do all the judging, and you’re interested only in power and control which are pretty much the antithesis of Christ’s teachings.
Kansas communities, it’s up to you: are you going to let NCPCF get this toehold in your bedroom? Or are you going to laugh at the very idea, and set a community standard of “I’ll make my own sexual decisions, thanks”?
