(CTV/ Worthy News)– The Conservatives are cracking down on johns and pimps because legalizing their activities would be unacceptable to Canadians, says Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

In defending new government legislation on prostitution, Harper said Monday that activities related to the sex trade are outlawed because they are harmful to women and society in general.

The legislation is the government's response to a Supreme Court of Canada decision in December that struck down chief elements of the country's prostitution laws.

Under the old laws, prostitution itself was actually legal but almost all related activities — including communicating in a public place for the purposes of prostitution, pimping and running a brothel — were criminal offences.

    To many Stop Signs are Run Already Galatians 5which are: adultery,[a] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders,[b] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. If one enjoys Living!
