Our Vision and Mission Our Vision and Mission

The vision of the Religious Alliance Against Pornography is a culture free from pornography.

RAAP's  mission  is to create a broad interfaith effort to alert, educate, and mobilize all people to understand and combat pornography.  

The primary purpose of RAAP remains the education of our own constituents.  Our goal is to produce through education changed beliefs about pornography and its broad negative impact; changed behavior eliminating the use of pornography within the faith community; and movement toward lives of sexual purity as understood and defined by each of our members.

We believe the exponential growth of pornography in America and around the world is undermining faith community leaders, marriages, families and children.  The impact on congregations is devastating and costly.  We believe this is a crisis of immense proportions.  It is impacting every denomination, faith group and nation, and all are equally vulnerable.  We have learned that if people do not stand up against this scourge and stand together in this effort, the avalanche of pornography and the sexualized messages of the culture will get worse and worse.
