This will piss off Shane Jones

Andrew Sullivan

This is going to seriously piss off Shane Jones, but ont he other hand if hotel porn was banned then he could well be looking at a serious tilt at the Labour leadership:

I wondered how long it would be before many leading theocons realized that their view of politics was remarkably similar to that of many conservative Muslims. Now theocon-in-chief, Robbie George, is allying with a Muslim intellectual in a crusade for banning porn on hotel TV. In an open letter to hotel owners, this campaign against freedom is framed as a battle as important as, yes, civil rights:

We trust that you need no reminding of the fact that something’s beinglegal does not make it right. For example, denying black men and women and their families access to hotel rooms – and tables in restaurants, as well as other amenities and opportunities – was, for countless shameful years, perfectly legal. In some circumstances, it even made financial sense for hotel owners and operators in racist cultures to engage in segregationist practices even when not compelled by law to do so. However, this was deeply morally wrong. Shame on those who denied their brothers and sisters of color the equal treatment to which they were morally entitled. Shame on you if you hide behind legality to peddle immorality in the pursuit of money.
