The 20th annual White Ribbons Against Pornography (WRAP) campaign that runs until Sunday, Nov. 4, is a weeklong initiative calling for Americans to fight against the “flood of pornography devastating our land.” The $10 billion porn industry captures more than 32 million individuals a month. WRAP sponsors hope to flash a spotlight on the dark and dirty underbelly of pornography in America.
“There is no longer any doubt that pornography inspires crime,” said Chuck Colson, president of Prison Fellowship. “Most child molesters admit that they consume hard-core porn on a regular basis. And those who create porn are now victimizing even the youngest children.”
White-ribbon wearing WRAP participants protest the scourge of porn by, among other things, educating themselves of all anti-pornography laws and then phoning local and national legislators and prosecutors to urge them to fight porn.
In Tennessee this year, in conjunction with WRAP and sponsored by the Pure Life Revolution (PLR) and Girls Against Porn organizations, the first Porn-NO Prayer Summit and anti-porn evening rally will be held in Nashville this Saturday, Nov. 3.
“Many people, [both men and women], and increasingly more people of faith, are succumbing to the allure and deception of porn,” stated the PLR Web site. “Many others are coming to realize that our nation is facing a serious moral crisis and pornography is fueling it.” WRAP events will be held throughout this week.
