Most thinking individuals agree that pornography is degrading and that there should be more effective community standards against it.

Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, "Sensualism is not bliss, but bondage." Science and Health, p. 337;

This ammunition is the spiritual truths available to everyone.
