Hotels asked to dump porn

(CNN)–In many hotel rooms, finding adult entertainment is as simple as a click of the remote. But that may change.  A Christian scholar and a Muslim scholar are teaming up to ask hotels to stop selling in room adult entertainment.  CNN's Susan Candiotti reports.

    christians can't be expected to live by their morals and choose not to watch p.orn; they have to have the option removed so they aren't tempted. lol.

    This isn't just about the por.n case. Christianity and many other religions are fundamentally anti-American when one looks at many of the national values most of us claim we hold. Such religions are anti-capitalism since they oppose a free market and optimal pricing of goods, and they are anti-free speech. True conservatives should oppose Christianity, as should reasoning liberals. Christianity is also racist and bigoted, given that it presents a "chosen race" and is unfair to women, among other reasons.

    Christianity, particularly that flagrantly practiced and grossly over-preached by evangelists, is also anti-science and is therefore putting our young people and our future workforce at a disadvantage relative to competing nations that now have better science education without religious bias and without the ancient supersti-tions that block modern understanding and technological and medical progress.

    Therefore, if we want to keep our great country the greatest in the world, a status that is increasingly questionable and under threat, Americans need to overthrow the power that Christianity has in the US, and ultimately get past religion entirely. We need to take our freedom back from the power-holders and practi-tioners of Christianity, and push back hard against the idiocies that religion represents.

      >>>”Christianity is also racist “

      Interesting, since there are minorities as heads of churches and even in the Catholic church there are a few Cardinals who are minorities.

      >>>”and is unfair to women,”

      Another interesting claim. We have women ministers and pastors. A few denominations have even elected women Bishops.

      >>>”among other reasons. “

      I guess we will have to wait for those claims. 🙂

      >>>”is also anti-science and is therefore putting our young people and our future workforce at a disadvantage relative to competing nations that now have better science education”

      And, still they teach students in their schools science and math to a level that they often out pace the secular public schools. They also have a greater number of students that go on to higher education than the public schools.

      “Some 93 percent of private school students went on to a four-year college, compared to 35 percent of all public high school students in 1999-2000” National Center for Education Statistics.

      While not all private schools are Religious in founding they do consti'tute the majority of them. Accord to these figures...if you want to make America more competi'tive you might want to enroll your kid in the nearest Arch Dioceses. 🙂

      Sigh.... you want the key to saving our country. It is to leave fossils like you behind. The ones that want us to overthrow and look to divide our society. You are the klan, you are the black power movement. You are the radical feminist and you are Rev Terry Jones and Al Sharpton all rolled up into a big egg roll of hatred.

      Bob, society can not afford your types anymore. History has shown that, over and over with death on top of deaths. Its the Blacks holding back the country ...no its the educated women.... no its the evil White man.... no its a Hispanics stealing our jobs. No, its the Muslims. No.. its the Atheist. No its the Gays and Lesbians

      Good grief … Do you not get tired of following in the footsteps of the goose-stepping people of history. It a burden and you need to lay it down. We won wars together, We won rights together...heck, one of the Rev Martin Luther Kings inner circle was an Atheist. When Christopher Hitchens died it was his Christian friend who eulogized him in a article.

      If Martin Luther King, a Christian, and Christopher Hitchens a Atheist, were able to find a way to coexist ... why should we in society even take you seriously?

      E pluribus unum, friend....

"Mohammed consu'mates marriage to nine year old girl, ped'o'phi'les cheer at reception" .. think that would get a fatwa issued against me? Some imam who is too cowardly to do it himself will send some poor uneducated illiterate fool to blow himself up coming after me.

    "are you so sure there are any 'HeavenSent' posts here today that are not parodies?"

    hat was the point of all we fake HeavenSents from the beginning. Make her irrelevant. We are rapidly approaching the point where it is pointless for that nutbag christard HeavenSent to even bother posting. Nobody will know which one it is, and nobody will care. For the religious nutters, that is a fate worse than hell.
