    FR C Praises Bush Administration Effort to Block '.XXX' Domain
    August 17, 2005 - Wednesday
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 17, 2005
    CONTACT: Amber Hildebrand 202.393.2100

    "The '.XXX' domain proposal is an effort to pander to the porn industry and offers nothing but false hope to an American public which wants illegal pornographers prosecuted, not rewarded."
    ~ Patrick Trueman, Senior Legal Counsel, Family Research Council

    Washington, D.C. - The Family Research Council thanks President Bush for calling a halt to the '.XXX' domain. Patrick Trueman, FRC's senior legal counsel and former chief of the U.S. Department of Justice's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, released the following statement:

    "Selling hard core pornography on the internet is a violation of federal obscenity law so the Bush Administration is right to oppose the '.XXX' domain. The Bush Administration should not, in any way, be seen to facilitate the porn industry which has been a plague on our society since the establishment of the internet. The '.XXX' domain proposal is an effort to pander to the porn industry and offers nothing but false hope to an American public which wants illegal pornographers prosecuted, not rewarded.

    "The '.XXX' domain was never intended to force the porn industry to leave the '.com' domain, which has been a cash cow for pornographers. Indeed, any law attempting to force pornographers to relocate to '.XXX' would be constitutionally suspect and not likely to be effective. Instead, if the '.XXX' domain were established pornographers would keep their lucrative '.com' commercial sites and expand to even more sites on '.XXX, thus becoming even more of a menace to society. Pornography violates the dignity of the women and men involved, destroys marital bonds, and pollutes the minds of child and adult consumers.

    "The Family Research Council supports Attorney General Gonzales' major new prosecution initiative against the porn industry, announced in May. We are confident of his determination and of his ultimate success. The pornographers, instead of expanding their presence on the internet, would be well advised to get out of business all together right now before they are called to court to answer for their crimes."
