MY NEIGHBORS MADE ME WATCH THEM HAVE SEX WITH THESE HIGH-POWERED BINOCULARS. THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE WINDOWS
But that was not enough for "Billy Ford, vice president of a Georgia chemical company," or "Morality in Media, a New York-based group that targets pornography and other entertainment deemed indecent." No sirree, they need more! Ford apparently was "really upset," and "demanded to see the captain."
Doesn't he know that he could have asked the flight attendants to visit the cockpit when he got on the plane? Hey, maybe they'd have given him a miniature model of the plane too, if he'd behaved.
(Ever been in a Turkish prison, Billy?)
Meanwhile, according to Morality in Media president Robert Peters, an airplane "is a public place . . . not a private home where some adult pays extra money to bring HBO into their home."
Uh, ok. That's why the flight attendants pulled the broadcast soon as they realized their mistake. That's why they apologized. But . . . Mr. Peters soon gets us to the real problem in the minds of clowns like him. In addition to his concerns about "children" ordering adult-themed programming if they sit away from their "parents," or what could happen if "adults" are sleeping or not paying attention, or if "children" are exposed to "neighbors'" TV screens, the Morality in Media president also added:
"I often find myself watching someone else's screen. I typically read and write when I fly, but you get bored, you get tired and instead of turning on your own television, you look around."
Ahhhh, so that's how it works, Rob? And notice how the subject of the sentence changed from "I" to "You" once the sneaky, Peeping Tom-ery begins. "Peters" reads and writes when he flies, but "you" get bored and start touching youself as "you" stare at the porn on other people's televisions.
Once again, someone who's simply terrified of his own impulses, unable or unwilling either to (a) take step one to control the urges that are so scary, or (b) just give in to them if they're not so bad afterall, decides that all other people -- adult, child, male, female, weak or strong -- must give up 100% of that which tempts him so seductively.
I guess he's not just the President of Morality in Media, he's also a client.
