Perspective on the buzz

Score one for decency. Google is getting rid of pornographic ads. According to Deseret News:

"'Under this policy, sexually explicit content will be prohibited, and guidelines will be clarified regarding promotion of other adult content,' Google explained."

PornHarms.com announced this as a "BIG WIN" on their website, even asking for people send a "Thank You" to Google.

Pastor Jarrid Wilson sees this as a pastoral win, and a big step in cleaning up the web:

"As a pastor, pornography is an addiction that I've helped many people find freedom from. This is a joyful day for anyone who sees the harm in which the p*rn industry provokes for its viewers, and those involved in its cultivation." (sic)

Leadership Journal frequently addresses the ministerial implications of pornography use, culture, and addiction. Recent coverage includes From Moralizing to Connection, Where Lust Leads, and This is Your Brain on Porn.
