"And they have every right to argue that, but they also have to argue against the statistics of what pornography does: it destroys lives, and there's no "if" "and's" about it," said Todd Greiner, Pastor at Community of Faith Church in Herrin.
Earlier this year his congregation urged local businesses to remove porn from their stores or face a boycott.
"We knew we were not going to remove pornography from southern Illinois, we know that. But if we can make a dent, if we could just make a small change it was worth the effort of doing that," said Greiner.

While New Line Cinema has reportedly toned down the atheist allusions for the film version, Todd Greiner, senior pastor for Community of Faith Church in Carterville, said "the movie itself is kind of a trap to lure kids in" to the books.
Greiner said the church has taken measures to educate parents on the messages of the film and the book series.
"We definitely don't criticize the freedom to go and see the movie if you want to, but we worry about unsuspecting parents," he said.

Todd Greiner is senior pastor of Community of Faith Church in Carterville, Illinois, which placed the ad. The ad promises to support only pro-life presidential and political candidates -- and Greiner says it is also meant to motivate Christians and encourage them to stop retreating from the culture war.
"We definitely need to stand up and we need to speak out on this issue," the pastor says. "Sadly, the church has been far too quiet. Silence is not golden in this situation."
According to Greiner, the project has unified the church. "I have never witnessed such a spirit of unity [as] what God is giving us here," he shares -- adding that "the sacrificial giving, the commitment, the passion, the burden for this" is a "a complete indication of what God is doing."
The Illinois pastor is hopeful the ad spurs his fellow Christians to get involved in defending the lives of unborn children. "It's something that needs to become contagious; it needs to grow, it needs to become a burden for the believers," he states.

The phrase "practice what you preach" might be a simple idiom to some, but in Todd Greiner's case, it's something he and his congregation are putting to task.
Greiner, pastor of the Community of Faith Church, located just south of Herrin on Route 148, is urging his church members to approach local gas stations and movie stores, including many in Herrin, in an attempt to remove pornographic materials from their shelves.
The movement, known as Citizens Against Pornography, started about four months ago when Greiner began to preach about what he saw as the ills of pornography. He said the addictive nature of pornography is something that can destroy families and marriages.
"It's an enormous problem in this country and all over the world, and there is very little said about it," Greiner said. "Pornography is every bit as addictive as drugs."
Greiner said that as he has researched the statistics on pornography, he has been surprised by how unnoticed it goes in society.
"Nobody is saying anything about it," he said. "It goes unresisted and unchallenged."
The group doesn't expect to put an end to all pornography, and Greiner said the group's impact mostly will be local. He added that as long as the church makes a small difference, it will be doing its part.
"We are going to put a full-page out in The Southern Illinoisan, and we are going to list the businesses who do sell pornography, and we are going to encourage people not to patronize those businesses," Greiner said.
