If a religious-based group released a Dirty Dozen list of the nation’s worst porn facilitators, you’d probably expect some names like Hugh Hefner, Larry Flynt.

But Eric Holder?

Morality in Media thinks so. Its Dirty Dozen list puts the U.S. attorney general at the top of its list because of what it calls his refusal to “enforce existing federal obscenity laws against hardcore adult pornography, despite the fact that these laws have been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and effectively enforced by previous attorneys general.”

In a letter to Holder, the group said, “After careful consideration, we have decided to include you Number 1 on that list because you, more than any other person, have made the distribution of illegal adult pornography possible in America.” The letter said Holder appears to have “no regard” for the children, families, women and men who suffer harm from the free distribution of adult pornography.

Holder closed the Department of Justice’s Obscenity Task Force in 2011. The task force began under George W. Bush administration in 2005.

Holder put the unit into the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section. Lawyer Patrick Trueman, president of Morality in Media, headed up that division between 1988 and 1993.

Holder was the only individual named to the group’s Dirty Dozen. The rest of the list includes: Comcast, Facebook, Google Play, LodgeNet, Hilton Hotels, Twitter, the American Library Association, Wikipedia, Cosmopolitan magazine, Barnes & Noble and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Comcast was cited as the largest of cable and satellite TV providers providing premium channels that include “hardcore pornography.” Other groups made the list for doing nothing to combat pornography, such as Wikepedia, social media sites and the American Library Association.

The Defense Department was cited for doing “next to nothing” to combat the widespread availability of pornography to U.S. servicemen and women. “In fact,” Morality in Media said, “it seems to be embracing pornography.”

The group’s website doesn’t explain how the list was compiled, but does include ways for users to contact the Dirty Dozen and voice their feelings.

Morality in Media was founded by an interdenominational group of ministers in the early 1960s. Its current letterhead lists a number of lawyers, academics and businesspeople.
