Investigation reveals that most demands for bans on adult manga and anime are coming from radical evangelical Christian groups within Japan, yet less than 1% of Japan’s population is Christian.

Some of the groups involved in supporting UNICEF Japan go so far as to publically decry pre-marital sex and homosexuality as moral degeneracy, to say nothing of their opposition to pornography as a whole, a far cry from the pro-child women’s rights agenda they would have the world believe they espouse.


UNICEF Japan (independent from, but endorsed by, the UN’s UNICEF) itself admits it receives support from a host of religious extremists, in addition to a variety of feminist groups who perhaps would be aghast at the agenda espoused by some of these mostly evangelical protestant groups:

Japan Christian Women’s Organization (日本キリスト教婦人矯風会)

“The growth in pre-marital sex, adultery, divorce, homosexuality and sex crime threatens to destroy healthy family life and create social chaos.”

Committee to Tackle Prostitution Issues (売買春問題ととりくむ会)

A group formed to ban “sexual exploitation,” whose membership overlaps with the above.

ECPAT / End Child Prostitution in Asian Tourism

A network of groups formed to stop the “sexual exploitation” of children, with much of its support and membership coming from churches. The Japanese arm lists the Japan Christian Women’s Organization as one of their supporters.

YMCA Japan / YWCA Japan

“The Young Men’s Christian Associations seek to unite those young men who, regarding Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and Son of GOD, according to the Holy Scriptures, desire to be his disciples in their faith and in their life and to associate their efforts for the extension of His Kingdom amongst young men.”

World Vision Japan

“[Our objective is] to follow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.”

Soka Gakkai Women’s Peace Committee (創価学会女性平和委員会)

The Soka Gakkai, a large Buddhist cult, notoriously interferes with Japanese politics through its “independent” political party the Koumeito, Japan’s third largest, and generally supports highly moralistic policies.

Big business also likes to support UNICEF Japan for the favourable PR it can yield; conspicuous in the list of supporters are Microsoft and Yahoo, presumably unaware that they are supporting an organisation opposed to freedom of expression together with groups which consider gay rights and even sex out of wedlock to be an abomination…

Of course, the anti-freedom of expression camp’s literal poster child Agnes Chan is herself a Chinese Catholic who now badgers Japan’s elected politicians into abrogating the Japanese constitution to appease extremist churches.

Some of the groups listed possess an extremely radical agenda; for example the 130 year old Japan Christian Women’s Organization (in Japanese they call themselves a “moral reform” organisation) boasts about being behind Japan’s 1956 Prostitution Prevention Law.

However, this group is a radical Christian moralist group as one of their own published proclamations clearly demonstrates:

A Statement on the Morals of Sex and Marriage:

The growth in pre-marital sex, adultery, divorce, homosexuality and sex crime threatens to destroy healthy family life and create social chaos.

We are aghast at this, particularly with regards to pre-marital sex. We wish for a healthy Japanese society.

Evidently, for many of these groups a ban on “loli” is merely a way of attacking the softest available target.

Their real objective is nothing less than Christian theocracy, with bans on pre-marital sex, prostitution, pornography and homosexuality all fantasised about even as they exploit the credulity of politicians and the mass media about threats to children.

    I'm a Christian, and I believe that premarital sex and homosexuality are wrong. I also enjoy yuri and shota. Hentai does not involve actual people. Drawings have no soul. Attacking something like loli only redirects a valid concern onto an issue which has no ostensible connections to actual instances of immorality.

    On a side note, a theocracy would be extraordinarily bad for Christianity. Sure, the list of nominal adherents would rise, but when you make religion the state, the state becomes the religion. Soon, you lose sight of what you originally believed in.

    My brother, you have fallen to lust and sin. Yuri and Shota, even as ideas, defile the name and sanctity of God. Do you think God is forgiving to our imaginations? If so, he would forgive Atheists and heathens for simply "thinking" in a different way. I hope and pray that you will come to your senses and return to the true path. that almost sounded authentic there, kind of scary O_o

    You may have been joking, but you carry an element of truth. I do believe that I sin in thought, but I think it is more dangerous to be imagining such things with actual women than with drawings. I consider hentai my catharsis for the natural propensities I have as a man.

    Nada .. Rab Yeshua was/is a Jew in a Jewish context speaking that which all Jews around Him related to. Essentially all women less than 12 on up were married in the Levant. So not only were almost all sexually functionable females any eye encountered already someone's wife (not like the 95% phony "wives/marriages" Today); but He was informing them the Apocrypha story of the 2 man setting up someone's wife for Adultery by lecherously stalking her were already guilty in heart. Rab Yeshua was only talking about real being looking (if you could commit adultery with her you would) on someone else's REAL Wife based on the Apocrypha story/Talmud. Not an Image of anyone seperate from that sentient being

    The Bible mentions lust, which applies to hentai. Basically, you're taking the easy way out by perverting the origin of your own belief.

    Either believe it all or believe nothing. Don't think you can just stay in the middle and hope you get something out of it, unless you want to be a coward.

    So let me get this straight, you are against homosexuality but enjoy yuri? Homosexuality contains males AND females, incase you didn't know.

    And no, they are not real people isn't a valid argument.

    Yes, I am fully aware of what homosexuality entails. If I had the choice, homosexuality would not exist. It does, however, and I enjoy yuri hentai. Hentai, however, has no immortal soul. It is not created in the image of God.

    Like all groups, some people just give really bad names to the majority. Christians, and other religious organizations, have done many good for needy countries.

    I agree with your post, however. I don't get why people in general waste time arguing over stupid stuff like this, which is comparable to what UNICEF is doing, when we can instead devote our energy into doing something else. Hypocrisy, much?

    Haaaay, there are more pressing issues aside from meddling with Japan's culture notwithstanding having the lowest sex-related crimes in the world.

    Why not focus on other countries?

    I say, these meddlers have ulterior motives to sabotage the otaku culture because it keeps Japan's economy and creativity afloat.

    I just hate it when the Catholics get dragged to issues outside of Christian teachings.

    Hello Radical groups!? Why not combat divorce and abortion being legalized in the US? Afraid of other Christian/Protestant/Atheist factions that have a stronger voice and influence in the West?

    The Knights of Columbus are way better identifying what moral issues need focusing [and they like Japan].

    In bible, God had ever said to Adam to "become many and fill the world" or something like that...

    Now, think.
    To be able to become many and fill the world, we need to do sex to produce children.

    The NON-sin way to achieve this is through LOVE, right?

    and one of the many factors that can make us Love someone is their appearance right? So if even the desire itself is prohibited, then just how in the world we will be able to do love the right way...

    I thought they have their own religion like Thailand...
    Wee... I'll join their church when I get a chance to move to Japan :)

    Japan is majority atheist.
    Their own religion when they are religious tends to be a fusion of native non-Chinese Animism which I hypothesize as Altaic; and Chinese, mostly Buddhist influence.
    There is a small handful of Christians in Japan. And they are mostly Catholic. Christianity is much more common in Korea than Japan.

    what I am curious about is that what they are trying to ban is for all intensive purposes cartoons, drawings, no real people involved except the artist. so where is the problem? who cares what religon you are or are not. I enjoy anime of all sorts but draw the line at toddlers, drawings or not it is a little disturbing to me. but that is my preference. just for the records most wars were generally due to religious beliefs. they don't worship as we do so we have to kill them. just look thru history and you find this to be true.

    And no, religion isn't a reason for war.

    Religion is a tool for the elite to manipulate the masses to think that a war of conquest, plunder, and profit that would only benefit the societies elite is actually a good thing for the masses, a righteous thing, their calling in life that they can't ignore.

    They use the other whatevers beliefs as an easy scapegoat to make their people hate the others, kill and torture them, massacre women and children, so the elite can make a profit off of the bloodshed.

    Religion was/is a tool to manipulate the gullible to keep the people on the side of the church and incite rebellions against kings that are sick of being robbed and told what to do by priests.

    I am Christian and I cannot see anything improper in admiring pictures and drawings depicting cute girls. Of course, the pictures should be decent and cover what should be covered.
    I like cute girls the same way somebody likes art, paintings or music. It ABSOLUTELY does not mean, that I could in reality (and even in my imagination) have any sexual activity with girls below legal age. This is ABSOLUTELY not cute. A flower is beautiful before we throw it to the mud. Not after.

    Use your imagination. You don't walk around naked do you? Loli in and of itself isn't wrong but it treads a thin line. An unhealthy fascination with little boys and girls and cuteness just makes you creepy. However when loli crosses that line into child pornography - when it appeals to base carnal desires and fantasies, that's surely wrong. I don't see how anyone can argue against that. The problem is loli crosses that line too often.

    So sex is something filthy, dirty and disgusting you save for that someone you love the most?

    Curious, in some places the age of consent for females is 21. Certainly you're not inferring that marrying an underage girl of 20 and having sex with her is filthy, dirty and throwing her in the mud?
