North Dakota Republican Calls for Total Criminalization of Adult Content

BISMARCK, N.D. — A North Dakota Republican lawmaker took to Twitter over the weekend to call for the total criminalization of adult content and for all politicians to submit to “the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

State Rep. Brandon Prichard began his social media tirade, which continued into Monday, by stating his belief that “pornography should be illegal. Conservative legislatures should wield their power and ban porn for both children and adults. It serves no positive benefit in society, destroys men, and treats women as objects. It’s not enough to stop at banning porn for children…

“Remember Christ spent his time on earth with the prostitutes and sinners,” he added. “You deserve better.”

Prichard added on Saturday that “conservative states should start banning Only Fans, for everyone.”

He continued by proposing that “conservatives states that want to tackle mental and behavioral health problems need to invest in programs to combat pornography addictions. This can include an anonymous hotline to call, cheap state services to block inappropriate content on personal devices, etc.”

Prichard also called for every member of the House and U.S. Senate to be subjected to a test to verify that they “submit to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

“Every conservative state should put into code that Jesus Christ is King and dedicate their state to Him,” he added. “Force RINOs to say no to Jesus and then brutalize them in elections. We need a government of Christians, not fakers.”

Prichard was elected to the North Dakota House of Representatives in 2022 and represents a district in the state capital, Bismarck. A 2019 high school graduate, Prichard has supported former President Trump’s MAGA movement and is sometimes at odds with older local GOP leaders.

A North Dakota journalist reported on Monday that several Republican lawmakers have expressed concern about Prichard’s posts, which are also blatantly anti-LGBTQ+ rights. The reporter noted, however, that “at least one of his colleagues, Republican Rep. Matthew Heilman of Bismarck’s District 7 and another recent high school graduate, was endorsing Prichard’s messages.”

As of the 2020 census, Prichard represented an average of 8,295 residents of District 8. He received 4,910 votes, only 124 more than his more mainstream Republican colleague, who was also elected to the state House.
