that means every nudist camp magazine trying to show happy families,
every news picture from Cannes, and the National Geographic, etc. are
about to have a problem with this dumbfuck.

is this asshole about to run for US President or just governor of
Alabama? sounds like he has high political ambitions and wants the
endorsements of Robertson, Buchannan & the now-religious-zealot
somebody raid his house; bet he's an S-M freak or some other kind
>> The indictment accuses the New York-based company of disseminating

to this man, God's natural clothing is an obscene act; he'd probably
die of apoplexy if someone invited him to the communal saunas in
Scandinavia and he walked out of the men's dressing room... Bavaria
for that matter, but not the prudish Swiss.
pedophilia should be treated as a capital crime, but that's as far
as it goes. today, statutory rape in consensual sex is a joke for
children over 12, or 8? I dont think they should have an awareness
of carnal knowledge at that age, but they certainly do. you can not
legislate morality; you can punish predatory acts such as pedophilia,
but the perpetrators sense of morality, etc. was lost long ago.
welcome to censorship in its finest hour. perhaps Mississippi has
progressed further out of the Victorian age than Alabama.
