Editor, the Times:
Front page porn makes him burn?
It's not often that an article I come across motivates me to send a response but I found myself compelled to respond to Mr. Friesen's Nov. 29 letter where he calls a front page picture in the Nov. 20 Abbotsford-Mission Times "pornographic."
I have lived in Abbotsford for over 25 years and over that time, I have seen many front page headlines and pictures.
The picture which Mr. Friesen felt compelled to "burn," and which took hours for him to erase from his mind, was nothing more than a photo of a Lingerie Football player in her uniform. She wasn't posing, she was merely in the middle of a play and her photo was taken. If a mere glance at a photo of a lingerie football player in uniform required Mr. Friesen to use the tools he learned in his Valiant Man course so as not to succumb to impure thoughts, then I would suggest Mr.
Friesen stay indoors during our spring and summer months as he may come across young women dressed in their summer clothes, which includes shorts, tank tops and even bikinis if at the beach.
I would like to suggest to Mr. Friesen that 99.9 per cent of the male population in Abbotsford wouldn't jeopardize their marriages or moral codes by acting in undesirable ways by simply glancing at a photograph, a photograph of a Lingerie Football player in her uniform.
