Boycott Carl's Jr. / Hardee's Pornography

• Carl's Jr. / Hardee's is a hamburger chain that is family oriented and they poignantly used sex to sell their food, such as in-restaurant posters displaying a burger and the phrase "Size Does Matter". In another advertising campain, a female hitchhiker lifts up her skirt for a disgustingly sexual tagline that I refuse to give glory to by repeating here.

• A few years ago, Carl's Jr. / Hardee's featured Hugh Hefner as a celebrity touting their fast food. How does a pornographic publisher get to be a spokesman for a family fast food chain? What kind of message is this sending to our kids?

• More recently, Carl's Jr. / Hardee's also aired an erotic ad featuring a mechanical bull and a scantily clad female eating a burger.

• Most recently, Carl's Jr. / Hardee's is featuring web-porno star Paris Hilton eating a burger, while washing a Bentley. The commercial is filled with erotic and sexual contortions made by a scantily-clad Paris. If I wanted to see women like this, I'd go to the red-light district. Should we, as Americans, be thinking of women as meat products that are designed to satisfy men's hunger? When we go to Carl's Jr. / Hardee's, should we be looking to get sexually aroused over a hamburger?

• Advertising like this isn't just bad, it's destructive to society as a whole. Will the FCC have to start putting warnings on commercials, stating that the "Commercial you are about to view is for mature audiences only?" In an age of rap music, Janet Jackson and rated R movies, are commercials no longer safe from the filth that pervades our culture?

• Take a stand and boycott this godless company. It is companies like Carl's Jr. / Hardee's that care nothing about Judeo-Christian values and will do anything to make a buck. Any company that exploits the sexuality of a woman to sell their product is so disgusting. Any woman who prostitutes her body for the sake of selling food is no different than the prostitute in the Red Light District.

• Since Carl's Jr. started the sexual advertising of food, Jack in the Box and Wienerschnitzel have both followed suit with subtle advertising as well. Though, to be fair, their advertising is more subtle that children usually don't catch onto it. But, nevertheless, any company or advertising company who compares food to sexual intercourse, is just perverted and it is an abomination in the sight of God.
About Pornography

More than 25 years ago, Dr. Victor Cline identified the progressive nature of pornography addiction. Once addicted, a person's need for pornography escalates both in frequency and in deviancy. The person then grows desensitized to the material, no longer getting a thrill from what was once exciting. Finally, this escalation and desensitization drives many addicts to act out their fantasies on others.

Doctors are using new technology to look inside addicts' brains to determine just how damaging pornography is. The research shows the similarity of porn addiction to cocaine addiction. Further, because images are stored in the brain and break than a heroin addiction.

Pornography is the catalyst for abusive sexual appetites that are never satisfied, never contained and never put to rest. It preys on the weak and vulnerable in an unrelenting hunt to capture your family and friends.

Pornography is NOT “harmless adult entertainment”, as some would like us to believe, but a real, measurable and undeniable threat to individuals, families and society.

The pornography industry, fueled by carnal lust and sexual fantasy, is the mastermind of Satan. It is the very tip of the iceberg that leads to other sexual immorality such as frequenting strip clubs, prostitution and human trafficking.

The good news is that Christ can free you from the addiction of pornography! He didn't create you to be enslaved by any fantasy, thought or addiction. You can escape this dark prison by submitting your life to Christ! He has redeemed you and saved you from your sins. Let Him take control of your life and you will be free, indeed! “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” —John 8:32
