Pornography and the Sex Offender

In Springfield, Illinois a 43 year old man was baby-sitting 11 year old Jim and three girls. He sexually molested the three girls, ages 7, 11, and 13.  Then he murdered Jim. When police searched his home they found a pair of one of the girls underwear, a stun gun and six pornographic magazines.  One of the magazines included an advertisement for a TV program, unspeakable acts about sexually molesting children while baby-sitting them.  Anonymous

Pornography is a widespread social problem, so prevalent that many people accept it as normal...During my trial, Dr. Victor Cline testified about the adverse effects of pornography. As I listened to his explanations, I could discern how my own life desires escalated. These normal feelings become desensitized, and they tend to act out what they have seen.  So it was with me. I am a homosexual pedophile convicted of murder, and pornography was a determining factor in my downfall.  Somehow I became sexually attracted to young boys, and I would fantasize them naked...I would need pictures that were more explicit and shortly the images became commonplace and acceptable. Finding and procuring sexually arousing materials became an obsession. For me, seeing pornography was like lighting a fuse on a stick of dynamite; I became stimulated and had to gratify my urges and explode. The day came when I invited a small neighborhood boy into my apartment, molested him and then killed him in fear of being caught.  Over the few years I kidnapped, sexually abused, and murdered four other boys. I lost all sense of decency and respect for humanity and life...If pornographic material would have been unavailable to me in my early stages; it is most probable that my sexual activities would not have escalated to the degree they did.  Convicted Killer, Arthur Gary Bishop

"I have lived in prison a long time now and I've met a lot of men who were motivated to violence just like me.  And without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography, without a question, deeply influenced and consumed by an addiction to pornography". Ted Bundy, convicted killer hours before his execution.
