Freedom from Porn

It might not seem like a big deal to some, but I have complete respect for Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, for not approving Porn apps on Apple products.  In an email exchange with a technology/media journalist Steve Jobs offers users of Apple products "freedom from porn" as a revolutionary idea.

The Journalist, Ryan Tate, just doesn't seem to get the double standards and moral relativistic attitude he proposes by the ideas in his emails.  Tate also fails to see how porn can harm families.

As a teacher of teenage boys, I  see how teenage boys -- who many look at porn on too regular of a basis, commonly view girls more as objects and things to use as a means to the end of physical gratification.

How does a person learn to love if all they are exposed to is people who use each other as things?

Perhaps the real problem Tate has with Jobs is that Jobs made an objective moral decision, something the relativistic mind cannot comprehend as is evident in Tate's emails,  and has decided that he (Jobs) will not participate in the distribution of porn by means of apps for the iPhone and iPad.

Be sure to read the comments that follow the article.  Nearly all make far more rational sense than the journalist does in his emails to Jobs.

I also am happy that Porn apps are not allowed in the app store. Though of course the built in browser can be used to surf porn. Though it would be about impossible for Steve Jobs to do anything about that. Well at least people can view porn in Flash format.

True. Jobs can only do some much. At least he is making a moral stance against something that is highly degrading to humanity.
