Indonesia flips over internet rock star smut clips
Naughty vid precipitates deletion/restriction frenzy
An online celebrity sex video is giving Indonesia's authorities an opportunity to try and restrict internet use.
Two explicit web clips showing Jakarta rock star Ariel in action with two models/television presenters has upset yet proved strangely enticing to the population, which is mainly Muslim.
Several schools have been raided for mobile phones so the offending clips could be removed.
The stars involved could face a lengthy jail sentence if convicted under an anti-porn law passed in 2008.
One of the clips shows Ariel (real name Nazril Irham) in bed with his girlfriend Luna Maya, who following the scandal has lost her job as the face of Lux beauty soap.
Meanwhile Communication and Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring, from the Muslim-based Prosperous Justice Party, is using the issue to revive his plans to block Web access to morally suspect sites. An earlier plan was blocked by heavy opposition.
He has told reporters: "We want to minimise the negative impact from the Internet as it will destroy this nation."
Sembiring wants teams to immediately set out and deploy firewalls for more than 2,000 internet cafes around the country. He's said it was a "race against time" to protect children from harm. ®
Then people wonder why I'm an atheist.
There is an element of who cares and if that is all he has to worry about then he needs to get a life.....from somewhere......from anywhere really.
Nice to see no matter the religion, when they want to crack down on freedom they all use the "think of the children" argument
Oh yes. Porn Will Destroy Your Country.
Especially amateur porn. I mean, look at Germany...
Oh, what? Germany is still there? Oh. Damn, there goes that theory.
Well, look at Sweden then...
Er, Switzerland then. Or Italy. Or...
C'mon dammit! Throw me a bone here! Someplace, somewhere must have been smote down by God because of nekkid boobies! Muslims everywhere can't be covering up every possible patch of skin for no reason at all!
New Orleans then. Yeah, that's been smote, right?
Oh, it's *still there*? DAMN! Those sinners are sure tenacious, aren't they?
