In his column entitled “Buy Hook or Buy Crook?” (April 21, Brandon Sun), managing editor James O’Connor wrote that “prostitution isn’t going away and needs to be regulated ...”
We all know prostitution is wrong. It has never been a father’s dream for his “little girl,” nor the courageous path on which good fathers have turned their boys into men.
There is no honour, respect or admiration to be found in squandering beauty for the enthrallment of the moment.
Laws are like fences that a community puts in place for the safety of all and should reflect what we, as a community, all know to be right and wrong.
Prostitution is wrong. We all know it. Let us then declare publicly, through our laws and values, that prostitution is an unworthy pursuit of pleasure and profit.
Let’s use our energies for worthy causes, not for regulating endless variations of unworthiness.
