BOSTON – "Internet content providers have asked a judge to stop Massachusetts from enforcing a portion of an expanded obscenity law that includes electronic communications that may be harmful to minors."
You know, at some point we have to ask ourselves just what are we protecting our children from? The less they know about the world the more trouble they get into. Don't teach them about drugs, they go and do drugs. Don't teach them about sex, they go and have sex. Just banning information that is arbitrarily designated as "harmful to minors" is ridiculous. The only way that this could be accomplished is to remove the Internet, TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, everything.
One other thing about this that angers me is the lack of responsibility that parents are taking for their children. Instead of raising and teaching their children, they want the government to do it. Now, I'm not going to claim I'm the best parent ever, but I'm not going to pass off my responsibility as a parent to anyone else.
