Porn Bill – No Worries

Talking Utah…

The ACLU is at it again. Despite the fact that pornography has been defined as out of the perview of free speech in many legal cases (talk to a good lawyer if you really want to know which one’s they are), The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is fighting HB 260.

They claim that this bill is a violation of the pornographers free speech rights. I personally would argue that you don’t have a right to pervert the world with your filth, but regardless of that. HB 260 is not a violation of your “rights” to put such filth on the Internet.

HB 260 is designed to protect my right to avoid such filth. The most important part of this bill is that this filtering be “Upon request by a consumer.” Thus, It is to protect those who wish to be protected. It isn’t about trying to thwart the legal business practices of pornographers.

John Morris, in a Salt Lake Tribune article, claims that this will cause problems because if one portion of a site is deemed pornographic then then the whole site will be blocked prevent access to decent content.

Morris needs to get up to date with today’s technology. Many filtering companies have overcome this hurdle, and it really should not be a problem.

The biggest problem will be keeping up with these perveyors of filth. They change thier web addresses frequently, because they are out to ruin our society and our children.

This is a good law. Governor Huntsmans should and will sign it. Lawsuits will be futile.

  • People have a right to live their lives without porn if they want to. Magazine covers have gotten more and more perverse and now some shops have started putting covers over the pictures which I think is a good thing, especially when youngsters are around.
    Porn stops you from searching for things or words that have double meanings or vague meanings which could bring up porn in your search when you didn’t want it too.
    I would be happier that it wasn’t there, but obviously that would upset some people — to think they’d have to use their imaginations for once!!
