Tennessee Republican Representative claims that porn leads to school shootings. I’m sorry, what?

One has to wonder if Rep. Dianne Black has actually ever even seen porn?

And if she has, exactly what the hell was she watching?

Courtesy of HuffPo:

During a meeting last week with local pastors, Black raised the issue of gun violence in schools and why it keeps happening.

“Pornography,” she said.

“It’s available on the shelf when you walk in the grocery store. Yeah, you have to reach up to get it, but there’s pornography there,” she continued. “All of this is available without parental guidance. I think that is a big part of the root cause.”

Black didn’t clarify what it is about porn that she thinks is leading to school massacres. Her congressional spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Beyond naughty movies, Black said school shootings are on the rise because of the “deterioration of the family,” mental illness and violent movies.

Ya know this is typical of puritanical Republicans. 

They blame all of the ills of society on anything that they themselves do not understand or find distasteful. 

I don’t like video games, so it must be the fault of video games. 

I am frightened by scary movies, so clearly they are destroying the fabric of society. 

I find adult entertainment disgusting, so obviously, that is why so many children are being shot in their classrooms. 

When this woman can point to one victim torn apart by the image of a naked woman I will gladly buy into her theory until then she should simply be pitied for her ignorance and lack of understanding about school violence.

    The notion that someone literally made the world – that is what’s known as artificialism. It is the child’s way of thinking – the table is made, so somebody made the table. The world is here, so somebody must have made it. The stories of creation are allegorical in nature. The Cartesian goal is cercertainty.

    There is another point of view involving emanation and precipitation without personification. A sound precipitates air, then fire, then water and earth – and that’s how the world becomes. The whole universe is included in this first sound, AUM, this vibration, which then commits all things to fragmentation in the field of time. In this view, there is not someone outside who said, “Let it happen.”

    So, its not the porn. The problem is one of epistemology.

    If the murderous weapons were not so easily available, there would be fewer school shootings. It’s that simple and that tragic.
