    I was listening to the radio tonight and came accross Allen Combs show. He was gushing over Playboy magazine for some reason. Maybe it is their anniversary? Anyway he kept on saying how wonderful a publication it is. He even told of an experience where he went to the Playhouse mansion and was speaking about a room where you could get it on. I used to respect Combs a little but now he is definitely on my full class political liberal loony list. How can anyone say porn is good?

    Perhaps he doesn't view Playboy as porn.

    It's a little embarrassing to me to see this topic thread on a "Baptist" board. But then maybe I'm just an old fogey.

    I think we would be hard pressed to deny the impact that Playboy has had on our society. The objectification of women and the changing of sex from something of profound emotional and spiritual impact into just something we do as just another meaningless act, like the dehumanizing of the unborn, elderly and infirm, is at the core of our failing society.

    The question is, what are you prepared to do about it? This is especially important for those of us who preach and teach. Sex can no longer be a taboo subject. God created it and He spoke on it at some length in His Word. It is high time we preach those passages boldly and faithfully.

    It works both ways here doesn't it? I'm very against any objectification of women; thats just cretin uncivilized & UN-Christian behavior but who are all these women freely allowing this exploitation of themselves & are cashing in? I do agree that it should be discussed & openly examined.

    > How can anyone say porn is good?

    How does BB define "porn." For example, should grade school kids have unlimited access to "Grey's Anatomy?"

    I didn't say women are being exploited. You are right though. In some cases they are, but in others cases they are not. The women's lib movement is one front in this battle. Men and women are equally guilty, and the Church has failed to hit this head on in any real concerted effort.

    >Who is Grey?

    Apologize for spelling error. You all must have seen the book.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray's_Anatomy

    Origins

    The British anatomist Henry Gray was born in 1827. He studied the development of the endocrine glands and spleen and in 1853 was appointed Lecturer on Anatomy at St George's Hospital Medical School in London. In 1855, he approached his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter with his idea to produce an inexpensive and accessible anatomy textbook for medical students. Dissecting unclaimed bodies from workhouse and hospital mortuaries through the Anatomy Act of 1832, the two worked for 18 months on what would form the basis of the book. Their work was first released in 1858 in England by the publisher J.W. Parker.[2] It was dedicated by Gray to Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie, 1st Baronet. An imprint of this English first edition was published in the United States in 1859, with slight alterations.[3][4] Gray prepared a second, revised edition, which was published in the United Kingdom in 1860, also by J.W. Parker.[1][5] However, Gray died the following year, at the age of 34, having contracted smallpox[1] while treating his nephew (who survived). His death had come just three years after the initial publication of his Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical. Even so, the work on his much-praised book was continued by others. Longman's publication reportedly began in 1863, after their acquisition of the J.W. Parker publishing business.[6] This coincided with the publication date of the third British edition of Gray's Anatomy.[7] Successive British editions of Gray's Anatomy continued to be published under the Longman, and more recently Churchill Livingstone/Elsevier imprints, reflecting further changes in ownership of the publishing companies over the years.

    He did say the articles helped to promote pop culture as if it was a tremendous thing.
