Pornography: The Hallmark of Utah

Google Trends and Google Insights allows a user to search for a term that is then relayed back to you with that country, state or city that searches that term the most. The state of Utah is the number one in the nation for the following search terms:

Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, The Book of Mormon, The Holy Ghost, Heavenly Father, Thomas S. Monson, Green Jell-O, Harry Potter Genealogy, Family History, Family Home Evening, Home Storage and the Lord of the Rings. 

Seems like the people of Utah are on the right path right? Wrong! The state of Utah is also the number one in the nation for search terms such as: Pornography, Boobs, Perfect T*ts, Strip Tease, Topless, Strip Poker, Lingerie, and Nudity.

"Avoid pornography at all costs."
Prophets of God Warn Against Pornography

1. Pornography...cause many to be tossed about on a sea of sin and crushed on the jagged reefs of lost opportunities, forfeited blessings, and shattered dreams. (Thomas S. Monson)

2. Pornography is especially dangerous and addictive. Curious exploration ofpornography can become a controlling habit, leading to coarser material and to sexual transgression. Avoid pornography at all costs. (Thomas S. Monson)

3. My beloved friends, under no circumstances allow yourselves to become trapped in the viewing of pornography, one of the most effective of Satan’s enticements. And if you have allowed yourself to become involved in this behavior, cease now. (Thomas S. Monson)

4. ...Whether you decide to push a key on your computer which will take you to pornography can make all the difference in your life. You will have just taken a step off the straight, safe path. (Thomas S. Monson)

5. Stay completely away from pornography. Do not allow yourself to view it, ever. It has proven to be an addiction which is more than difficult to overcome. (Thomas S. Monson)

6. “Extremely alarming are the reports of the number of individuals who are utilizing the Internet for evil and degrading purposes, the viewing of pornography being the most prevalent of these purposes. My brothers and sisters, involvement in such will literally destroy the spirit. Be strong. Be clean. Avoid such degrading and destructive types of content at all costs—wherever they may be! I sound this warning to everyone, everywhere. I add—particularly to the young people—that this includes pornographic images transmitted via cell phones." (Thomas S. Monson)

7. I fear this may be going on in some of your homes. It is vicious. It is lewd and filthy. It is enticing and habit-forming. It will take a young man or woman down to destruction as surely as anything in this world. It is foul sleaze that makes its exploiters wealthy, its victims impoverished. (Gordon B. Hinckley)
