Legal History of Porn; People vs Freeman

On the 1st of February 1989, The Supreme Court of California essentially legalized the making of hardcore pornography in California v. Freeman. Their landmark and historic ruling opened pandoras box, which today has degenerated into global internet pornography and is easily accessible to children.

There are many grey areas in the Freeman case and we BOLDLY point them out because justice was not served in the Freeman case.

The case file of The People v. Freeman (1989) states,
“Defendant Harold Freeman hired and paid actors to perform in a non-obscene commercial film which portrayed sexually explicit acts. On that account he was charged with and convicted of five counts of pandering — procurement of persons “for the purpose of prostitution” — under Penal Code section 266i. He appealed contending his conduct did not constitute the crime of pandering. The Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment of conviction.” -OPINION KAUFMAN, J.-

The key words here are nonobscene commercial film.

The film in question is CAUGHT FROM BEHIND II.

“Defendant Freeman is the president of Hollywood Video Production Company
(Hollywood Video), which is in the business of producing and marketing “adult” films.
In September 1983 defendant produced and directed a film called “Caught from
Behind, Part II.” Defendant hired actors and actresses to perform in the film. As part
of their roles, the performers engaged in various sexually explicit acts, including sexual
intercourse, oral copulation and sodomy.” People v. Freeman (1989)

Was the film CAUGHT FROM BEHIND II a non-obscene commercial film ?

The online etymological dictionary defines the word obscene as follows:
obscene (adj.) 1590s, “offensive to the senses, or to taste and refinement,” from Middle French obscène (16c.), from Latin obscenus “offensive,” especially to modesty, originally “boding ill, inauspicious,” of unknown origin; perhaps from ob “in front of” (see ob-) + caenum “filth.” Meaning “offensive to modesty or decency” is attested from 1590s.

Legally, in U.S., it hinged on “whether to the average person,
applying contemporary community standards, the dominant theme of the material taken as a whole appeals to a prurient interest.” [Justice William Brennan, “Roth v. United States,” June 24, 1957]; refined in 1973 by “Miller v. California”: The basic guidelines for the trier of fact must be: (a) whether ‘the average person, applying contemporary community standards’ would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to
the prurient interest, (b) whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by the applicable state law; and (c) whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

Now let us examine the evidence once again. One wonders why the American court did not examine this evidence and this “oversight” jeopardized the whole case, enabling the judgement of the Supreme Court of California which essentially legalized the making of hardcore pornography.

The very dvd box describes the film as “totally tasteless” meaning “offensive to the senses, or to taste and refinement,FILTH, OBSCENE”. The description itself also mentions that the film involves “shameless graphic detail involving anal sex.” The dvd box mentions that the film is “XXX Rated.” Ladies and gentleman, how can this material be a “non-obscene commercial film ?”

One can only draw the following conclusion, The Supreme Court of California bares the RESPONSIBILITY for LEGALIZING the industry that has now morphed into global pornography and is easily accessible to children.

In our humble opinion, they are responsible for this massive  global pornographic culture:

COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE! There is only one sure way out of porn.

Those who want to come out of pornography and never return to the filth, let us repent and return to JESUS right away,

Say,
Dear Jesus, Mighty Father, Precious Holy Spirit. I am sinner. I have sinned against you and against my own body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I have defiled your temple with sexual sin, pornography and wickedness. I have become the body of the harlot. Please forgive me. Disconnect me from the mystery babylon spirit and all unclean spirits. Disconnect me from filthy jezebel. Disconnect me from all ties to demonic spirits. Disconnect me from spiritual ties to satan. Make me clean LORD JESUS, make me once again into the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT. Help me not to be defiled again. Help me JESUS not to return to sexual sin and porn. I repent of idolatry, lies, and all wicked acts. Please forgive me. Today I am born again and I am receiving you JESUS, I am receiving you FATHER, I am receiving you HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.

WARNING!

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

If you REJECT THIS INSTRUCTION, THEN YOU HAVE REJECTED GOD, for it is written,
“For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 4:7-8
May the LORD JESUS write and keep the names of all who have repented here. Amen.

Shalom.
