You must have a much better opinion of "the people's representatives" than I do.
I don't want any government official, agency or department telling me what I am forbidden to read, listen to, or see.
We used to do the same thing...censorship of movies and books according to the prevalent moral code of the people was always present in our country.
And it was stupid nanny-statism then, just as it is now. How about we let the market decide?
Our ancestors were smart enough to know the difference between protected POLITICAL SPEECH and immorality. And gutsy enough to enforce it.
Of course, the First Amendment covers more speech than just POLITICAL.
And given such things as the Alien and Sedition Acts (among numerous other examples), I wouldn't say the founding fathers or other ancestors got it right, either.
I’m with you on this one. Too bad they don’t have a strong constitution that prohibits censorship of ideological opposition. I don’t have any use for turd burglars but I don’t have to take part in their depravity.
On the other hand, I think a constitutional case can be made against promoting homosexuality in schools and other taxpayer funded venues.
