Anti-Porn Crusaders NCOSE, Exodus Cry to Brief Congressional Staff Today

WASHINGTON — As part of their “Dismantle Pornhub” campaign, leading religiously inspired anti-porn crusading group NCOSE (formerly known as Morality in Media) will hold an “online briefing for U.S. congressional staff” today.

This propaganda briefing is co-sponsored by a handful of other anti-porn organizations, including the Exodus Cry's “Troffickinghub” campaign, overseen by high-profile anti-porn crusader Laila Mickelwait.

Mickelwait has repeatedly taken credit for Nicholas Kristof’s December 4, 2020 New York Times article “The Children of Pornhub,” which kickstarted the most recent War on Porn campaign with the admitted aim to "destroy" one of the industry’s most well-known tube sites.

The Looming Shadow of Kristof's Tendencious NYT Article

According to NCOSE, the propaganda briefing “will provide a concise overview of evidence related to the criminal behavior of MindGeek, owner of Pornhub.”

“A December 2020 New York Times exposé, ‘The Children of Pornhub,' revealed the rampant sexual abuse of minors on Pornhub, an online petition has garnered over 2 million signatures to shut down Pornhub for aiding sex trafficking, and multiple class action civil lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. and Canada on behalf of sexually abused children and trafficking victims,” NCOSE boasted during their own announcement of congressional briefing.

“In response, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover credit cards rightly cut ties with Pornhub,” NCOSE added.

The lobby formerly known as Morality in Media — founded by clergy in 1962 to ban any books that referred to sex work — mentions U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) as having “spoken out condemning” Pornhub.

“Furthermore, Canadian Parliament’s House of Commons Ethics committee has launched an investigation into MindGeek’s complicity in mass sex crimes,” NCOSE said.

A One-Sided 'Debate'

“The United States is by far the number-one consumer of Pornhub, the corporation has offices in the U.S. and has servers in America,” NCOSE claimed, asking the congressional staff to help “dismantle Pornhub.”

According to NCOSE, the definition of “pornography” includes magazines like Sports Illustrated and Cosmopolitan, and any content dealing with sex whatsoever.

MindGeek “must be shut down by dismantling the four pillars of Pornhub's infrastructure,” NCOSE concluded.

Neither U.S. Congress nor Canada’s House of Commons have allowed sex work advocacy groups or adult industry trade groups to be included in the ongoing debates about adult platform liability for third-party content.
