Submission + - French Deputy Aims to Block Porn At ISP Level (owni.fr)

Alarash writes: French Deputy Christian Vanneste wants to submit a law (Google translation) where French Internet users would have to explicitly ask their ISP not to block pornographic websites. He claims it's to protect the children because parental control software "doesn't work" and is "easy to disable." He also says that pornography is a "form of terrorism." Mr Vanneste has been condemned to a 3000€ fine in 2006 for claiming during a Parliament session that "homosexuality is a threat to humanity" and is "morally inferior to heterosexuality." His official blog cannot be reached at the moment.
