Ultraconservative Group Says: Eliminate Hotel Porn

It's "nice" to know that, despite all the things that are wrong with the world today, some folks will still find time in their busy schedules to infringe on the liberties of others.

See:

First they came for the smokers....

To crusading, busybody do-gooders, I would suggest: There are far more pressing issues for you to address than the rights of individuals in their own homes -- temporary or permanent. Go after the polygamists in your midst first. Or is polygamy too much of a family value?

If religious oppression of liberty begins at home, then what better task for you than to start with your own?

I'm with you. I'm pretty much a libertarian when it comes to what people do in the privacy of their own homes, as long as it's between consenting adults. I find what the extreme right wing does to limit liberty almost as threatening as what the left does to forbid us from defending it.

Someone I knew was in a hotel room in South Africa, as he was flicking through the channels he came across "Disabled Porn". Strange? Well yes, but not so freaky as items like Animal Farm etc etc.

Anyhow, being alone down route and not having been successful in the hotel bar, he warmed up his hands and selected the channel. The TV screen went blank and he waited in anticipation. However nothing came on.

He went back to the menu system to look for the porn channel again but couldn't find it. Thats when it dawned on him... "Disabled Porn" was "Disable Porn" and he'd turned off the adult channels!

Far too shy to ask reception to re-activate the channels, he spent 2 weeks alone with no blue movies haha!

Most of the hotel chains are public stock companies. Some stockholders in them may include religious organizations or religious based investment and retirement funds. While they see hospitlitaly companies as good investments, they do not want to support porn or gain profits from it, as it is offensive to their faith and that is understandable. Of course, the cable and satallite tv service companies which include public stock companies like Time Warner and Comcast, offer plenty of porn channels (pay-per-view or suscirption) or HBO which has some nudity and sexual content as well. Why not go after them too?

"Really ultraconservative groups try to target the hotels in their zest to eliminate porn," Shepard said. "In their zest to have their personal morals prevail, they're eliminating choice for others."

That about says it all right there. If they don't want to watch it that's fine. Trying to eliminate it to "protect" me is stepping on my right of choice. Just as bad as any radical muslim telling me I have to die because I don't believe in Allah.

In all fairness.. Muslim Fundamentalist Terrorost would blow up the hotels.

(Political Correctness Disclaimer: Notice my wording. I am not calling all Muslims Fundametalist "terrorists". I am certain that there are plently of amazing peace loving Muslims even if they are fundamentalist. I am also certain that there would be the posibility of Chirstian Terrorist groups - so i am not by anymeans pointing fingers at a particular group. I am just pointing out the potential differences in their methods of protest)

If I only knew that then.

I had a former boss that thought it was funny to turn on the porn in your hotel room when you were not looking, just so it would show up on the bill and some prude in the finance department would gag when she reviewed your expense report.

Yes, hotels will happily print two receipts for you (One with the movies (of any type) and one with the room charges). This way you can pay for the movies separately from your room charges and only submit the room charges on your expense report. I have done it multiple times.

BTW, these are the same people the gay rights movement have been fighting for years. Yes, they want to control your life and no I don't think it is American. It is unfortunate that the Republican party has served as their mouth piece for so long.

You're only partly right.

A Muslim Fundamentalist terrorist would first watch the porn, THEN blow up the hotel.

Dumbasses. If they don't agree with it, don't watch it. It takes a good few buttons to push to get it, and in some hotels i've stayed in you need to ring reception to get it. If you don't want to watch it, don't spoil it for the porno-holics who do. It's like the people who complain in site related about certain types of threads (a few that comes to mind, the US election threads, or the world cup ones). Don't read/watch it. Does this mean that all the dirty magazines and DVD's in newspapers in the centre ad's page have to be removed?
