In Friday the 13th’s edition of the Albert Mohler Program, Al looks at the subject of pornography in light of the presidential nomination of David Ogden as Deputy Attorney General. Ogden is a “First Amendment extremist” lawyer who represents the interests of pornography in society.
Pornography is one of the most insidious dimensions of American culture today. It is a plague that is ruining lives, marriages, and public morals. It endangers women, children, and the most vulnerable among us. Putting one who can only be described as an extremist for pornography in such a high position in the Department of Justice — Deputy Attorney General of the United States — sends a clear signal at home and around the world. If David Ogden is confirmed, the U.S. Senate becomes a party to this disaster.
Mohler asks what kind of signal the nomination of Ogden makes, and should we even care as Christians about this nomination. Mohler deals more extensively with the subject of pornography in his book Desire and Deceit.
