Whether commissioned as a mural or independent street art, obscene designs and illustrations are more than just a blemish. When we allow the obscene and vulgar to be prominently displayed in public spaces, we are harming families and devaluing these places.
"We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God." - 2 Corinthians 10:5
No one should be forcefully subjected to graphic or indecent images. Instead, we should support positive, uplifting and wholesome art that brings out the best in our communities.
Speak the Truth in Love
We do not support or condone the destruction or defacement of any building or display. Instead, we call on our neighbors take action the way Christ would. Let us come together as a community to promote wholesome art and remove indecent displays the right way.
Promote American Ideals with Positive Art
Protecting Decency in Our Communities
We believe public art adds value to our communities and culture. Art can uplift a community, foster pride, enrich the culture and create a strong sense of identity.
We support public art and attractions that convey a positive message and promote respect, integrity, love, morality and positive ideals. Obscene, vulgar and indecent displays that promote crime, violence or sin disparage our communities and should be removed from public spaces.
Take Action the Right Way
While we strongly support the removal of inappropriate displays, we believe it should be done the right way and through legal channels with respect for the owner and our neighbors. We do not support acts of vandalism or defacing art, billboards or property of any kind.
I’ll Know It When I See It
We understand art is subjective, but we also believe individuals should feel protected from the obscene while in public spaces. As a society, we understand the need to regulate television and radio with regulations like the Safe Harbor Hours. Public spaces should be given the same protections and subjected to the same regulations that limit indecency and vulgarity.
