‘Pornaments’ Make Way Onto Shelves

November 10th, 2009 by

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (news4jax)– They’re festive and X-rated, and now they’re back on store shelves locally in time for the holiday season.
But some people are not happy some stores are once again peddling “pornaments.”
The ornaments are sexually graphic. One ornament has two reindeer and another has a couple of snowmen, and all are in compromising positions.
The box they’re sold in calls them “holiday ornaments.”
Three years ago, Channel 4 did a report about the then-called pornaments. They were different then. There were six, and they prompted a protest outside the Regency Square Mall where they were sold.
Clint Wilder, the pastor of the Arlington Family Church, organized that protest then. Now, he said he’s even more disgusted.

“It’s offensive to me. It’s highly offensive,” Wilder said.
The ornaments cost $10 at Spencer’s Gifts in the mall. There is a warning on the back of the box now that says they’re not intended for children.
On the front of the box, it says “for adults only.”
Channel 4 tried to contact Spencer’s corporate office Monday, but there was no answer.
“These are pornography,” Wilder said. “They should not be in the eyes of children, and they should not be where children shop.”
