Censors rejoyce

Regarding the recent settlement in Minneapolis, Family.org has this to say in a recent article:

“I would think (the Minneapolis settlement) would make libraries more cautious about when to disable the filtering,” Burt said. 

Phil Burress, head of Citizens for Community Values – a Cincinnati group which operates the national Family Friendly Libraries program – agreed the settlement should give pause to all libraries. 

“How do you know that it’s not a pedophile that’s coming in and saying, ‘I just want to do some research, will you turn the filters off?’ ” Burress asked.

He said if turning off filters should ever lead to harm to a child or a worker being exposed to offensive material, another lawsuit is bound to follow.
