I have written frequently on how pornography is tearing apart lives, families, and relationships and how it bad for everyone who uses it or produces it (an example can be found here in the post "What is Wrong With Porn?"). This problem is only getting worse. I got a phone call today about someone struggling with the issue and a priest who I know called to ask what we could do to help them, because the father couldn't stop using pornography and it is tearing the entire family down.
Now, there is hard data accompanying many of the anecdotal examples. The Family Research Council did a study on the effect of pornography. Here are the findings:
