How to use obscenity in a sentence?

  1. Sydney Leathers:

    Pornographers should be fearful of any Republican candidates because historically speaking, Republicans are the ones who come after us with obscenity charges, republicans care an awful lot about the Second Amendment but not enough about the first. Like it or not, porn isn't illegal and this is a First Amendment issue.

  2. Kristan Hawkins:

    The threats and vitriol must be stopped. Every day it seems like we hear of a new account of vandalism, threat of violence, or acts of intimidation towards peaceful pro-lifers, what happened Saturday shows us the worst of the worst of the pro-choicemovement;obscenity, Satan worship, and lewdness towards students. We firmly reject all acts of violence and intimidation towards our students.

  3. Bertrand Russell:

    It is obvious that 'obscenity' is not a term capable of exact legal definition in the practice of the Courts, it means 'anything that shocks the magistrate.'

  4. Jack Parsons:

    Remember that the Tarot is a great and sacred arcanum - its abuse is an obscenity in the inner and a folly in the outer. It is intended for quite other purposes than to determine when the tall dark man will meet the fair rich widow.

  5. Anaïs Nin:

    The violence and obscenity are left unadulterated, as manifestation of the mystery and pain which ever accompanies the act of creation.
