“You live in a world of terrible temptations. Pornography, with its sleazy filth, sweeps over the earth like a horrible, engulfing tide. It is poison. Do not watch it or read it. It will destroy you if you do. It will take from you your self-respect. It will rob you of a sense of the beauties of life. It will tear down and pull you into a slough of evil thoughts and possible evil actions.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign Magazine “Some Thoughts on Temples, Retention of Converts, and Missionary Service” (Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, November 1997), 51.
