To combat pornography, Catholics should take the lead in the home and in our institutions. It should be a high priority for Catholic colleges.
Recent controversy over the Netflix movie “Cuties,” now the target of a Texas indictment for “lewd visual material,” helped bring renewed attention to the devastating impact of pornography.

Dr. Chad Pecknold, theologian at The Catholic University of America, responded to “Cuties” by warning families, “We must guard our senses. We must guard our children.”
