House Backs Library Filters 63-7

Idaho libraries would be required to filter Internet access for adults, under legislation that just passed the House on a 63-7 vote and headed to the Senate; they're already required by federal law to filter Internet access for children. Rep. Mack Shirley, R-Rexburg, said a group called “Citizens for Decency” brought the idea to him. “As a result, I've done a lot of personal research into this topic,” he told the House. “My personal research has convinced me that pornography poses one of the greatest destructive forces … on the youth”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Do you agree with Rep. Mack Shirley that "pornography poses one of the greatest destructive forces ... on the youth"?
