Is Pornography an Evil in Our Society?
Cupid's Treasure, a Stefko Boulevard sex shop, has been receiving unwanted attention from a group intent on forcing the business to close. The King's Men, a Catholic pro-life group promoting "masculine spirituality," has been picketing the adult book store. Founder Mark Houck credits his group with shutting down 12 sexually oriented businesses.
"We've had patrons come to us and thank us for doing this," said Houck. "They are grateful." Calling pornography an "evil in our society," Houck was particularly upset that a sexually-oriented business is located across the street from Valley Farm Market, where it can be seen by children. "This brings sexual deviance to the community," he insisted.
The King's Men was sued by Adult World, another sexually-oriented business in the Quakertown area, following a similar protest in which it was alleged that protesters sprinkled holy water and buried miraculous medals on the property. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit.
