Efforts to Prosecute Adult Shops Discussed on “Missouri Viewpoints” – Phillip Cosby interviewed

October 22nd, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Pornography. Adult businesses. Flesh peddlers. Erotic entertainment. Whatever you want to call sexually-based materials and businesses, they are controversial and increasingly under the scrutiny of activist groups and government.

Leading the effort to have adult businesses indicted and charged with crimes is the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families. The organization’s director of the Kansas City area office, Phillip Cosby, is this week’s guest.

Is porn just another option of entertainment that adults should be free to choose or reject? Is it a detriment to our society that encourages and enables crime and the deterioration of families and communities? How you answer those questions likely affects how you answer this one: how much freedom should adult businesses and its patrons have to buy, sell, make or view this element of media?

Cosby argues that communities and government have a mandate to prosecute these businesses, even if that means restricting the individual freedom to choose what kind of magazines and movies people want to watch.

    I’m all for liberty and freedoms, individuals that are willing to regulate what I can and can’t do with the tagline “it’s for the children” scare the bejesus out of me. Tyranny in religious practices are just as bad as tyranny in governmental practices.
