Documenting The Moral Decline That Threatens To Destroy America

Porn Wins A Major Victory At The Supreme Court Of The United States

Do you remember ten years ago when Congress passed a law that many people said would be doomsday for porn on the internet? Well, that law has now been officially killed by the Supreme Court of the United States in a major victory for porn.

More than 10 years ago, Congress overwhelmingly approved The Child Online Protection Act. That law would have made it against the law for websites to make pornographic material available to minors over the internet.

But now that law had died a quiet death as the Supreme Court of the United States has rejected the government's last attempt to revive the law. It turned away the government's appeal without comment.

Perhaps the Supreme Court justices did not want to damage the economy. After all, porn revenue is larger than all of the COMBINED revenues of all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises in the United States.

Or perhaps the justices were concerned about a revolt among young men. More than 70% of all men between the ages of 18 and 34 in the U.S. visit a pornographic site in a typical month. How would they react is their porn was suddenly restricted?

Meanwhile, a federal judge has ruled that an Illinois law that requires a moment of silence in public schools across that state is unconstitutional.

Now keep in mind, that the Illinois law had nothing about prayer in it.

It was about a moment of silence.

So let me get this straight.....a moment of silence is unconstitutional while porn to minors is perfectly constitutional?

What a wonderful system we have, eh?

Yes, a thinly veiled attempt to bring religion into public schools is unconstitutional. What purpose does a moment of silence have? If an individual wants to have a moment of silence, there is nothing stopping them. When a *real* moment happens that deserves silence, no laws are needed.

Yes, telling people that they cannot do something because a child might witness it, is also unconstitutional. Ever see live surgery? It is far more shocking and revolting than anything pr0n could produce. A child could potentially walk in on surgery, could see it online, etc. Should we ban surgery? Maybe that is too absurd of an example. Hmm R-rated movies with any amount of nudity could possibly be held liable under such a law.

Really, do you want your actions to be limited by what some puritanical individual deems inappropriate for other people's children?
