(KSL News) The topics of pornography and homosexuality were subjects of discussion tonight at the Alpine City Library.

Citizens for Families and the Standard of Liberty showed a film about dangers of pornography that recruits children into gay and lesbian lifestyles. They say parents need to pay attention.

John Gunter Jr., of Citizens for Families, said, "Get involved. Speak up. Don't be afraid to comment on what you think's right and what you think's not appropriate for your children. Watch what they're doing on the Internet, on their cell phones, texting, what movies they're watching."

Gay rights activists attended the meeting and took exception to the claim that homosexuals are being recruited. Yana Walton, with the Utah Pride Center, said, "Absolutely not. There is no gay agenda, but we do have a goal, and that goal is to make sure that every kid feels safe and is safe."

The meeting had originally been sponsored by the local PTSA of American Fork High School but was canceled and rescheduled with the new sponsors.
