**A Tennessee law restricting adult entertainment for minors has been deemed unconstitutional, while youth rights continue to be disregarded in the pandemic. When will we restore sanity and common sense to our society?**
In a startling turn of events, a Trump-appointed judge has decided that the state of Tennessee has no business banning adult performances in front of minors. Yet, these same authorities force children to wear masks and restrict their breathing in the name of public health. The line between parental rights and state authority has become blurred, leaving the average citizen to question the validity of bureaucratic decision-making.
Just last week, Judge Thomas Parker declared Tennessee’s Adult Entertainment Act to be “unconstitutionally vague and substantially overbroad.” Despite the fact that the law appears to fall within reasonable lines, Judge Parker has effectively defended the right of minors to be exposed to adult content.
While the judge’s ruling may have been targeted at homosexual-themed performances, it exposes a greater issue: the erosion of moral values in our society. Across the nation, laws prohibiting public displays of lewd and lascivious behavior are routinely challenged by those seeking to push the envelope. Worst of all, the same legal system that defends public adult entertainment for minors simultaneously undermines parental rights to protect their children from such exposure.
Furthermore, it is both ironic and disheartening that courts continue to impose mask mandates for children under the pretense of “public health.” The balance between a child’s fundamental rights and the state’s overbearing grasp seems to have been lost in the shuffle.
Moving forward, it is crucial for the next president to appoint judges like Justice Thomas who will uphold traditional values and protect our children from the dangers of adult entertainment.
