WASHINGTON, DC, July 11, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) Days after Google announced a plan to promote the homosexualist agenda worldwide, a spokesman for the leading U.S. organization opposing obscenity and indecency has drawn attention to the fact that the tech giant is promoting sexual immorality in other ways as well.
Patrick Trueman of Morality in Media pointed to Google TV’s recent partnership with Vivid Video, “the top commercial pornographer in the country.”
Trueman said Google’s launch of the Vivid for Google TV channel late last year means that families must be ever more vigilant about what their children access on the internet.
“Google TV, with its connection to porn, will allow kids to get hardcore porn on their big screen TV’s unless parents take charge and get good blocking software to prevent their computer broadcasting or accessing pornography,” Trueman told Focus on the Family’s radio host Stuart Shepard.
Trueman added that parents should not only be concerned about how another avenue to easily access porn may affect their children, but also themselves.
“We don’t have to just worry about the kids,” Trueman said, “we all have to be worried about ourselves having the restraint to avoid this material.”
Trueman said Google has a long history of involvement with porn and this is just one more troubling development.
In May, Google announced its opposition to a proposal by the UK government whereby Internet service providers (ISPs) would be tasked with creating filters to automatically block online pornography.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron expressed interest in passing legislation that would require ISPs to provide such filters, which would prevent access to pornographic sites unless the Internet user opts-in to access such sites.
However, a Google representative said that the search-engine giant doesnt support Camerons idea, saying that the onus should fall on parents to monitor what their children are viewing.
We believe that children shouldnt be seeing pornography online. We disagree on the mechanisms. Its not that easy, said Sarah Hunter, Googles Head of UK Public Policy, according to a BBC report.
Morality in Media has a large amount of information on the harms of pornography and has links to parental control and internet filtering software.

I've always liked that little stunt; put the responsibility on the parents, while at the same time making it more and more difficult for them.
Google’s new motto would appear to be, “Plenty of guns, but no firearms.”
I go through my registry daily and delete google.
Even though I hate porn and yes it is bad, it will be worse when the Government does something about it.. They will block more than porn..
