Screw Copilot, God's Driving

So, the big players of the religious right have set aside targeting reproductive freedom, safe sex, and happy gay people and set their sights on a new target: hotel porn. Kathy Shepard, of the Hilton hotel chain, speaks to truth about what this issue's really about:

Both Kathy Shepard of Hilton and Roger Conner of Marriott said the bulk of their hotels are operated by franchise-holders who make their own decisions about in-room programming. They made clear, however, that their companies consider adult movies to be an acceptable option because they can be ignored or blocked out by guests not wishing to view them.

"Really ultraconservative groups try to target the hotels in their zest to eliminate porn," Shepard said. "In their zest to have their personal morals prevail, they're eliminating choice for others."

But Kathy, don't you know that when humans have choices, they will always choose the sinful, debased one? That's why God's Chosen Busybodies must block out all matter of choice, in order to make us all really bored yet really righteous!

Like I said last June, when a self-appointed "moral crusader" talks about actively avoiding, if not trying to kill, something that provides possible beneficial and negative choices, they are admitting that they, ironically enough, have no moral fiber of their own. They cannot look at an issue objectively and decide whether it is right or wrong, and God forbid they let anyone else make that choice. They truly believe that they could not figure out that actively snuffing out another human being's life is wrong, without having God to tell them so.

And the last thing I want is someone who can't figure things out without having someone to tell him so tell me what I should be doing with my life.
