Utah Lawmaker Wishes He Wasn’t Forced to Watch Porn All The Time

A resolution that designates pornography as a "public health threat" was signed into law in Utah last week and now the state's conservative lawmakers will set their sights on banning pornography.

State Senator Todd Weiler, the author of the resolution, appeared on the Family Research Council's radio show and said he believes banning porn is the next logical step because its existence violates his right to not watch it.

“That’s what I think is often lost in the First Amendment discussion,” Weiler said, “because someone may have the First Amendment right, according to the U.S. Supreme Court, to view pornography, but what about my First Amendment right to not view it?

Yeah. What about Weiler's right to not watch porn every single night, sometimes even during lunch breaks? What about that? I wish everyone would stop forcing him to watch porn all the time, sometimes even on his cellphone at the office. If thousands of hours of porn wasn't readily available to stream in HD quality over public wifi, he wouldn't be forced to dutifully consume it.
