Georgia Lawmaker Wants a Ban of Porn on Military Bases

Georgia lawmaker and former Marine Paul Broun [pictured] wants an outright ban on the sale of pornography on military installations.

The Military Honor and Decency Act (HR 5821) would close a loophole in current law that is allowing the sale of sexually explicit material on American military bases located in the U.S. and around the world.

A Defense Department board ruled last year that magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse are not pornographic. But the measure sponsored by Congressman Broun (R-Georgia) modifies definitions of “nudity” and “lascivious” to make it much more difficult for the board to approve the sale of sexually explicit material.

Broun, a Marine veteran and Christian, says he is merely trying to get the Defense Department to uphold the law.

“A lot of people in my Tenth Congressional District in Georgia would find this very objectionable to have their tax dollars expended on supporting, subsidizing the sale of pornographic material on military bases. Now this doesn’t have anything to do with censorship. Military officers, military personnel can get pornography from multiple sources. The thing is, it’s against the law — and we shouldn’t be subsidizing it,” Broun contends.

According to Broun, taxpayers should never have to pay for the distribution of pornography. “[The Department of Defense] is supposed to review what is sold in military exchanges around the world on a yearly basis,” he explains. “From 2000 all the way to 2005, they didn’t have a meeting to review what was being sold. When they just had a recent review, they found a lot more objectionable material that was being sold, and that [material] was removed. But I don’t believe they should sell any of this objectionable material that people, without any question, would say that Playboy and Penthouse magazine are sexually explicit magazines [designed] to illicit a sexual response from individuals,” Broun explains.

The GOP lawmaker believes the sale of porn on military bases has harmed military members in numerous ways, including “escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes, feeding a base addiction, eroding the family as the primary building block of society, and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad.”

Since being introduced in the House on April 16, HR 5821 has been referred to the Readiness Subcommittee of the House Armed Serviced Committee.
