U.S. citizens should not believe claims by some that the U.S. Congress could
merely pass a law requiring all porn companies to leave the .Com for the
.XXX. Any law attempting to force pornographers to relocate to .XXX would
likely be declared unconstitutional because under the First Amendment, all
pornography is “presumptively protected” by the U.S. Constitution until it
has been determined to be “obscene” or “child pornography.” Just as the
Department of Justice cannot force porn stores to move or go out of business
because it believes that such stores are operating illegally, the Department
cannot force pornographers on the .COM domain to move or go out of business
without first charging them with a crime and having a court make a
determination of illegality.
I urge you to stop the proposal of the .XXX domain from moving forward. In
addition to strong opposition from both sides of the argument, this new
domain would only increase the amount of pornography available on the Web,
easing accessibility to hard core pornography to minors and adults alike.
Pornography is a widespread, ever-growing crisis, polluting the minds of its
viewers and negatively changing attitudes towards women and children. Please
do NOT participate in the destruction of marriages, the abuse of children,
and the demise of our culture.
A more appropriate goal should be to STOP the distribution of this
destructive material by prosecuting those responsible for it, not to protect
pornography on the .XXX domain.
Again, please kill the proposal of the .XXX domain.
