Indonesia MP Watches Porn in Parliament Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Apr 11, 2011, 10:11 PM

Arifinto Porn.jpgA member of parliament from an Islamic party that promoted anti-pornography legislation was compelled to resign after being observed watching porn in parliament.

According to the BBC News, “Mr. Arifinto of the Islamic Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) was photographed looking at the images on Friday. He said he inadvertently opened an email link which led him to the images.”

In Indonesia, pornography has transformed into a testing ground of conservative Islam’s influence over politics.

Mr. Arifinto, who goes by one name, said at a news conference, “for the recent developing news coverage, I apologize to all members of the party and parliament. I will continue to work for my party. I’m also going to better myself, by repentance, reading the Koran and asking for guidance.”

Kate McGeown of the BBC in Jakarta, discloses that the PKS played a crucial role in pushing forward anti-pornography legislation, which would explain why when one of its lawmakers was caught out, he was granted no mercy.

As reported by the BBC, “if it is proved that Mr. Arifinto was indeed downloading a pornographic movie, as photography of his behavior appears to show, he could find himself charged with a law of his own party’s making.”

Hypocrisy in religion is not a new sin; it's as old as religion itself. However, most religions are not as fanatical as fundamentalist Islam.

Violating the teachings of Islam, in many countries, will earn you a death sentence or the most brutal of beatings and/or maiming.

Allowing encampments of Sharia law, in Christian Europe, has already polluted a number of legal systems. The attempt has been made in the United States, but has failed. I expect it will continue to fail until it's pointless.

One never hears a complaint when Saudi princes or other rich Arabs come to the United States, cavort with women, drink and smoke, and violent a number of chapters of the Koran. Appears to be a case of "When in Rome....or among the infidels".

Anyone with email has been spammed with pornography; it's just a sad part of the Internet experience. But, you have to be a special kind of stupid to be an anti-porn Muslim and download an entire movie while sitting in parliament in full view of other members of parliament.

Watching Obama lecture America on his economic voodoo message today...I seriously considered that porn would make more intelligent watching....at least as believable and convincing.

L'aménagement du musée a été très organique. Con?u Timberland Pas cherrelativement récemment (milieu des années 1990), les différentes civilisations sont regroupés et organisés d'abord par région géographique et chaussures Timberland chronologique. Les pièces passent par un long espace relativement étroit, le long des parois extérieures du batiment rectangulaire.
