Oklahoma state senator and Southern Baptist pastor Dusty Deevers and “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon have been sparring online over the topic of pornography. Deevers has proposed anti-sexting legislation, and Fallon mocked the attempt during his late show monologue. Deevers recently fought back in a video message on X (formerly Twitter).

“Wherever there’s a phone, an iPad, or a screen, you and your children are only two clicks away from the most vile, disgusting filth that the depraved mind has ever imagined,” Deevers said.

Dusty Deevers Responds to Jimmy Fallon and Americans Who Oppose Banning Pornography

After “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon heard of the legislation Deevers proposed, the topic of banning pornography was featured in his opening monologue. Making light of the topic, Fallon proceeded to offer fictitious comments from Deevers. “Wait, I just realized that my name sounds like a porn name,” Fallon said as he read an image of the fabricated statement. “Which is ridiculous. If I had a porn name, it’d be the name of my first dog and the street I grew up on. My dog’s name was Dusty and I lived on 32 Deevers Street. So my porn name would be…’Dusty Deevers.’ Oh f—🍆.”

After a few weeks, Deevers took to X to respond to Fallon in a video message. “There is nothing good about pornography. It’s harmful to individuals. It’s harmful to families,” Deevers said. “It’s harmful to society at large. It is an acid. It’s corrosive, and it is destroying families. It’s destroying lives. It’s destroying education. It’s wicked. It’s corrupt. It’s worthless.”

Throughout the video, Deevers painted a bleak picture of the nature of pornography. “And Satan would want you to have porn brain. He wants you caught up in an addiction that you can’t control,” said Deevers. “He wants your mind re-wired and that’s what pornography does.”

To add a depth of depravity, Deevers quoted serial killer Ted Bundy about pornography. Back in the 1970s, Bundy was arrested after he was stopped for speeding in a stolen vehicle. He confessed to 36 instances of kidnapping, rape, and murder and was executed for his crimes in 1989.

“Like most other kinds of addiction, I would keep looking for more potent, more explicit, more graphic kinds of material,” Bundy once said. “Like an addiction, you keep craving something, which is harder, harder, something which gives you a greater sense of excitement until you reach the point that pornography only goes so far.”

Deevers continued to share Bundy’s assessment of other prisoners and their involvement with porn. “I’ve lived in prison a long time now. I’ve met a lot of men who are motivated to commit violence just like me,” Bundy said. “And without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography, without question, without exception, deeply influenced and consumed by addiction to pornography.”

“Did you know that the average age of first exposure to porn is 12 years old?” Deevers asked in the caption accompanying his video. “It is a corrosive acid that is destroying lives and families, and our society is drowning in it. Sorry, @jimmyfallon, but pornography must and shall be abolished.”
