4. Obscenity and Pornography
Castle has not taken occasion to address this particular issue, as it is not one which is seemingly pressing. However, the Constitution Party platform is so backwards and disturbing that it necessitates a double-take. Furthermore, it seems commiserate with the Party’s (and Castle’s) purported strong belief in so-called “Christian values” pervading the culture. It reads:
Pornography, obscenity and sexually oriented businesses are a distortion of the true nature of sex created by God for the procreative union between one man and one woman in the holy bonds of matrimony. This results in emotional, physical, spiritual and financial costs to individuals, families and communities.
Due to a lack of prosecution, the sexually oriented business industry has proliferated, aggravating the problems of child pornography, human trafficking and sexually transmitted diseases. This is decreasing our safety by increasing crime rates, specifically rape and molestation in additional to the loss of dignity belonging to all human beings.
We call on our local, state and federal governments to uphold our First Amendment right to free speech by vigorously enforcing all laws against obscenity.
