The ban of internet porn

The Nigerian federal government is planning to introduce a law that will ban all porn websites in the country. In Britain, Talk Talk became the latest internet provider to introduce a digital filth filter.
Government is planning to ban and block websites that inculcate negative attitudes in our children but we need a law to support such move," said National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki at Sunday's closing ceremony of the three-day workshop held in Kaduna, according to the Abuja Premium Times.
“Because without a law, people can go to court and claim infringement on their rights,” Dasuki explained.
Critics of the decision are saying the government has no business censoring the internet. However, the Nigerian government as well as the country's religious leaders are ready to take the flack the move may generate.
When Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan signed a new law banning same-sex “marriage” in 2014, western nations, including the US and Britain, condemned the legislation.
However, the Nigerian government has said that if the cost of accepting foreign aid is to allow same-sex couples to “marry,” that’s a price the country is unwilling to pay.
[Same-sex ‘marriage’] is alien to our society and culture and it must not be imported,” said House Majority Leader Mulikat Adeola-Akande. “This practice has no place in our culture, religion, Nigeria or anywhere in Africa. It is immorality and debasement of our culture, we condemn it in totality.”
Nigeria is a strongly religious nation whose population is split about equally between Christians and Muslims. The legislation against same-sex relationships enjoys widespread popular support.
Nigeria’s Catholic bishops praised the country’s senate for its “courageous and hope-inducing decision” to pass the bill outlawing same-sex unions and public displays of homosexuality.
The Nigerian bishops insisted that forbidding even public displays of homosexual affection is essential to the country’s moral health. “Far from being a denial of the fundamental right of some Nigerians who would engage in it, such a prohibition protects our society from the usurpation of its right to moral health and cultural decency,” they said in a statement.
“The Senate took this courageous and hope-inducing decision in the face of considerable internal and international pressure to do the exact opposite,” they explained.  “Nigeria has in fact since then been directly asked by some Western countries to reverse this decision or forfeit certain aids and support.”
In their statement, Nigeria’s bishops joined numerous African leaders in decrying Western governments’ efforts to “impose” their values on the continent.
“We declare that no country has the right to impose on another such conditions as are likely to upset its common cultural and societal values just to satisfy the exotic desires and tendencies of a few,” the bishops wrote.

Nigerian gvmt plans to ban porn websites: official Jan 26, 2015

Almost one in six British homes will no longer have automatic access to online pornography after Talk Talk became the latest internet provider to introduce a digital filth filter.

Any customers who want to watch porn will now have to ask for the smut screen to be pulled off their account.

Sky has already vowed to implement a blue movie ban which will come into force this week, with a mandatory opt-in required from anyone who wants to see naughty content.

This leaves BT and Virgin as the only major internet providers which offer access to sex flicks as standard.

Both Talk Talk and Sky's bonking barrier was introduced following David Cameron's call to rid British homes of porn.  

Alex Birtles, head of external communications for Talk Talk, said that "nearly all" of Talk Talk's customers have made the decision about whether to allow porn into their homes.

"Filters will only ever be applied if the customer has consented and they’re able to change their mind or edit their level of protection at any point," she wrote.

"In fact, we actively encourage customers to amend their settings, because what level of protection a family needs will change over time as children mature or move away.

The porn block has already provoked accusations of censorship.

"Censorship should never be turned on by default," said Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group.

"Filters block all kinds of websites, including some that provide useful advice to children and young people."

According to ISP Review, Sky has 5.3million customers and Talk Talk has 4.2 million.
