“NO” TO CHILD PORN

Catalyst June Issue 1998

The Catholic League typically sticks to anti-Catholicism, but there are occasions when we feel that straying from our major objective is critical. Such is the case with the Child On-Line Protection Act.

The legislation, which has been introduced by Congressman Michael G. Oxley of Ohio, is designed to restrict children’s access to pornography on the World Wide Web. The law reflects the guidelines in last year’s Supreme Court decision striking down the Communications Decency Act. Because the bill merely requires that commercial Websites take steps to screen out children, it in no way constitutes censorship.

The Catholic League has wholeheartedly lent its support to this bill.
