Former "Playboy" model Pamela Anderson joined ultra-conservative Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in writing an op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal claiming that pornography will destroy future generations of humanity -- just as it did the marriage of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.

"[I]f anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedin," they wrote, even though that separation had nothing to do with the consumption of pornography.

"From our respective positions of rabbi-counselor and former Playboy model and actress," the pair continued, "we have often warned about pornography’s corrosive effects on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband and, by extension, as father. This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness."

But it's not just disgraced former politicians who are risk from the evils of pornography -- it's the children, who are being raised in an "environment of wall-to-wall, digitized sexual images."

"They are," Anderson and Boteach argued, "the crack babies of porn."
