Pornography is more than images on paper or film. Prior to the development of photography, some literature was intended by its creators to challenge Christian ethics and thus rightly be regarded by society as obscene. If we are to understand the issue of pornography we need to remember why this was the case, and we need to go a little further than the baser urges it stimulates in its consumer.
As a proponent of R. J. Rushdoony's work, I found the form that Weiland's citations of Rushdoony took to be troubling at times: a positive citation, with Weiland expressing regret that Rushdoony wasn't consistent in applying that "correct" Biblical view just enunciated to the Constitution, the Founders, etc. What was missed entirely by Weiland was the key point made repeatedly by Rushdoony: that the U. S. Constitution provides us with a procedural morality, not a substantive morality.
