“What does it mean to speak of child protection when pornography and violence can be viewed in so many homes through media widely available today? Children deserve to grow up with a healthy understanding of sexuality and its proper place in human relationships. They should be spared the degrading manifestations and the crude manipulation of sexuality so prevalent today…All have a part to play in this task—not only parents, religious leaders, teachers and catechists, but the media and entertainment industries as well.”
Pope Benedict XVI, in his address to American bishops (Vatican.va, April 16, 2008)
