hey guys,

for my essay to apply to the scholars program at ualr i have to right an essay on a controversial social issue. i've decided to do mine on the dangers of pornography. if you know of any philosophers on this topic (including the generalized topic of objectifying other people) or have any insights on the topic, please post 'em. hope everyone is doin good.

yo, i had to read two essays that touched on this maybe....1) Is Art Above the Laws of Decency? by Hilton Kramer from Public Policy and the Aesthetic Interest--Critical Essays on Defining Cultural and Educational Relations edited by Ralph A. Smith and Ronald Berman...2) Art and Taxpayers from Philosophizing Art--Selected Essays by Arthur C. Danto

I don't know if these will help. I don't really remember exactly what their points were, but maybe it's a start.

man, i just finished readin your post. you've never offended me before when we've talked religion, but i didn't know you "looked down" on people for having faith. i have never looked down, or talked down to you, to your face or behind your back because of you having no religious faith. if you really look down on someone who has a different belief than you (a religious one in this case), that sucks...and in that aspect, yes, you'd be closed-minded.

i agree; anyone who is ignorantto the point that they won't listen to anything anyone else has to say is just a stupid individual. however saying that religion cannot co-exist with science, or logic, for that matter is a generalization that cannot be put on everyone who partakes in spirituality.

no, i've never been offended by you when we've had these discussions. as i've mentioned before, i've never looked down on you for NOT having spiritual faith, i just ask that you, as i'm sure you do, refrain from looking down on me for my beliefs.

see ya later,
