Just Call Me a Clown

I, for one, have no objection to the idea. We’re not talking about something crazy like consfiscating pornography from military servicemen (or women) who own it. But I like the idea of the american military having nothing official to do with porn. We train our servicemen to protect and defend, in situations in which they often have to face perilous choices as who to protect and defend. Pornography is a grave indignity and degradation of the human person. If a soldier wants to view pornography, it’s his right, but the U.S. military need not provide it to him.
