"In our free society, people have the right to choose how
they live their lives."-- President George Bush, June 3,
2006 So why does our government
want to censor what you
read, hear, and see?
try to limit your access to
attempt to legislate "good moral
try to brainwash your kids about "abstinence"?
These are the kinds of questions Dr. Marty Klein asks--and
answers--in his new book, America's War on Sex. With
hundreds of examples ripped from today's headlines, he names
names, challenges political hypocrisy, and shows the
financial connections between government and conservative
religious groups that are systematically taking away your
rights. Dr. Klein isn't shy about it. He demands to know--as
you should demand to know--
If 50 million Americans
consume pornography, why does the government dare to
regulate it without consulting any consumers? Why do
Congressmen listen to "victims of porn" but not healthy
adults who use porn?
Now that "abstinence-only" sex
education has been proven a failure, why does the government
still give it $200 million each year? And how can most of
that money go to "faith-based" groups who tell your kids how
God feels about their sexual choices?
Why do hundreds
of American communities feel they have the right to
eliminate legal adult entertainment, claiming "we're not
that kind of city"?
Why do family courts have the right
to judge the private sexual habits of each parent when
making custody decisions?
How can licensed pharmacists
and physicians claim they have the right to deny you legal
medical care if it violates their "conscience"? Our glorious
Constitution guarantees us the widest range of rights
civilization has ever seen. Why are those rights
systematically undermined and revoked when it comes to
sexual expression? Is there a conspiracy to deny us our
sexual rights? No, says Marty Klein: "It's worse than a
conspiracy. It's a war. They're very open about it--it's a
War on Sex." It's a war that threatens the very fabric of
our secular democracy. The American Taliban, our own sexual
jihadists, want to replace our government with laws based on
the Bible, creating a country in which "normal sex" is
narrowly defined and no one has the right to alternative
sexual information, health care, or personal expression.
America is fighting a war on terror to prevent the overthrow
of our way of life by fanatics who want to base all law on
their strict religious beliefs. It is completely
unacceptable that a group of conservative Americans is
trying to accomplish the same thing right here.
