Mitt Romney Criticized For Hardcore Hotel Porn

Tee hee -- that's the AP headline. The fundies are mad at the Mittster for not doing anything about Marriott Hotels offering in-room porn to its customers when he was on its board. (KUTV):
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, who rails against the "cesspool" of pornography, is being criticized by social conservatives who argue that he should have tried to halt hardcore hotel movie offerings during his near-decade on the Marriott board.
..."Marriott is a major pornographer. And even though he may have fought it, everyone on that board is a hypocrite for presenting themselves as family values when their hotels offer 70 different types of hardcore pornography," said Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values, an anti-pornography group based on Ohio.
...Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a leading conservative group in Washington, said: "They have to assume some responsibility. It's their hotels, it's their television sets."
Burress, you might recall, also owns the web site owns the web site CleanHotels.com, a listing service to alert travelers where there is no availability to order such pay-for-play content. Pay per view porn generates up to $500 million for the hotel industry, so it's not going away.

Never mind that a ChristiaNet poll last year found 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography. One assumes some of them are ordering up porn when they are on the road.
