Interview with Phillip Cosby, Executive Director or the National Coalition for Children and Families Kansas City Office

Pornography. Adult businesses. Flesh peddlers. Erotic entertainment. Whatever you want to call sexually-based materials and businesses, they are controversial and increasingly under the scrutiny of activist groups and government.

Leading the effort to have adult businesses indicted and charged with crimes is the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families. The organizations director of the Kansas City area office, Phillip Cosby, is this weeks guest.

Is porn just another option of entertainment that adults should be free to choose or reject? Is it a detriment to our society that encourages and enables crime and the deterioration of families and communities? How you answer those questions likely affects how you answer this one: how much freedom should adult businesses and its patrons have to buy, sell, make or view this element of media?

Cosby argues that communities and government have a mandate to prosecute these businesses, even if that means restricting the individual freedom to choose what kind of magazines and movies people want to watch.
