Regular users of pornography are less likely to convict for a rape, and less likely to give a harsh sentence to a rapist if in fact convicted. Conversely, individuals who do not use pornography are more likely to convict an accused rapist. Garcia, L.T. (1986). Exposures to pornography and attitude about women and rape: A correlative study.

The biggest problem with this youth group is not that no one loves God because yes, I am sure many of them do. The problem is that they only know how to love others that are picture-perfect people. The “druggies, whores, and lonely kids” they are all outsiders. Condemned for being skeptics of the faith.
