A group of multi-faith clergy known as The Groundswell Movement have taken out a full-page ad in the New York Times (above) pleading Village Voice Media and backpage to stop in the sexual trafficking if women and children.
The letter they sent VVM should have only been the first sentence of the letter.
It is a basic fact of the moral universe that girls and boys should not be sold for sex.
That should be a universal truth whether you’re a person of faith or faithless.
Of course the child trafficking scum at Village Voice Media don’t think so.
Neither government officials nor God’s advocates can dictate such arbitrary control of business or speech.
First off you’ll notice that none of the cowards at VVM had the balls to put their name to their dreck.
Secondly they should be ashamed of wrapping themselves in the fucking First Amendment when what they’re doing is depriving women and children of their basic freedoms.
Let’s boil it down to its basic elements. Backpage and Village Voice Media are accepting money for advertisements where women and children are being forced into sexual slavery. Most people would be appalled at this but not the greedy bastards at VVM. They would probably sell their own daughters on backpage if they thought it would get them another buck.
And the fact that the majority of people in the so-called land of the free turn a blind eye to this makes me sick. Why aren’t more people aware of this? What are you doing about it? Anything? Probably not. So how about getting off your ass and doing something about it? Write your paper. write the politicians, hell even write to Village Voice Media. Do something.
Right now there are more people in slavery in this country than there were during the Civil War. If that doesn’t make you feel like doing something than you’re just as hopeless as Village Voice Media.
