Chance are they're good people who are just flat out running their own small business.  They probably will need the following explained to them.


They do have to accept delivery of assorted magazines but they can keep objectionable ones in the back room and send them back to the distributor (which is exactly what they do with all unsold newspapers) and the distributor refunds the money.

If a distributor sees that a particular newsagent always sends back all of the copies of Penthouse etc the distributor will see that it is in his best interests to no longer send those magazines to that retailer.

Once a newsagency or retailer removes pornography, encourage others in your community, church, business groups to frequent their shop.  Get the Mayor or MP to publicly present an award to the shop as a “Family Friendly” shop.  It’s so important to reward their good behaviour.

Then what?

Inform us here at AFF.  We love to share your stories and experience to encourage others just like yourself.

About A.F.F.

We have been full time lobbyists for Aussie families since 1983.  AFF is dedicated to upholding Biblical family values, promoting a Biblical Christian worldview, and educating and mobilising concerned individuals to positively affect their homes, communities, country and world.

We not only encourage Christians to be "salt" and "light", but provide credible strategies for doing so.  One of our specific goals is the removal of pornography from the family marketplace where children have access.
