What could go wrong?

Utah campaign against porn marches on with phone filter plan

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Conservative lawmakers in Utah have fired another salvo in their longtime campaign against online porn with a new requirement that all cellphones and tablets sold in the state automatically block pornography in a plan that critics call a significant intrusion on free speech.

…Combating porn is a perennial issue for Utah lawmakers who have previously mandated warning labels on print and online pornography and declared porn a “public health crisis.”

The entire state is going blind.

    The only thing the porn filter is going to accomplish is to drive Uthahns to use more and more outré search terms for their spank material. Within two months, the entire population will be furry vore fetishists.

    …leading to a surge in laptop and desktop computer sales.

    Seriously, though, what, then would keep the state of Utah from requiring blocking of all non-Moron Church religious content?

    Sounds like a crisis of faith, as in “The lord will help thy keep thy hands to thyself, especially away from thyself.” If that be true, what could be the problem?
