    Oh, well, I was just thinking about the posts condemning "food porn", but I was wondering, for the sake of argument, what made it any different from going to an art gallery and looking at depictions of other things.

    Art has the potential to uplift or drag down, depending on the use. Tantalizing people with the worst of human nature only propagates the worst in us all. But so, too, can looking at the best in humanity propagate the best in us. It's not for nothing that Paul tells us to ponder on the honorable and good of life.

    Yes, sometimes art shows us the bad we don't wish to see - but need to see in order to correct. But that isn't the same as making tantalizing, attractive and alluring the worst impulses in us all. One asks us to see the truth and change it; the other asks us to follow it to Hell.
