Citizens for Decency announce Blackfoot conference

“Porn sites receive more regular traffic than Netflix, Amazon, & Twitter combined each month,” according to Fight The New Drug.

According to The Market Intelligence Blog, in 2016, there were eleven pornography websites in the top 300 most popular websites.

Blackfoot, Idaho, will host the sixth #UniteToFightPorn conference sponsored by Citizens for Decency and Bingham Healthcare to combat the damages of pornography on Feb. 22, starting at 1 p.m.

Throughout the three-hour conference, attendees have the opportunity to hear from six experts on the harmful effects of pornography on individuals and families. Elder Mervyn B. Arnold, Emeritus General Authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the keynote speaker for the event.

After the conference, at 7 p.m., Jenny Oaks Baker and Family Four will perform.

Conference tickets are free, and tickets to the concert range from $10-$20.

According to their website, Citizens for Decency’s creation stems from “the request of a devastated widow and mother … in order to give hope to those whose lives have been ravaged by pornography and to prevent others from experiencing her pain.”

Citizens for Decency has traveled as far as Washington, D.C, to lobby for pornography-limiting legislation. At the same time, the organization’s activities include introducing and passing legislative resolutions in Arizona and Idaho, meeting with U.S. senators and influential media personalities.

Elder Arnold has given three addresses in the Church’s semiannual general conference: “To the Rescue: We Can Do It,” “What Have You Done With My Name?,” and “Strengthen Thy Brethren.”
