The Church of England Threatens to Pull Investments from ISPs that Support Internet Porn

To crush the ever expanding porn industry, the Church of England has threatened to use its financial powers.

According to an article in The Daily Mail, The church is considering cancelling millions of investments in Internet Service Providers (ISPs) unless actions to stop Internet pornography are taken promptly.

After it was discovered that Vincent Tabak, Jo Yeates's killer, had an obsession for websites that featured sexual bondage, violence and also strangulation, concerns over the availability of images demeaning women on the Internet, has greatly increased.

ISPs like Virgin Media, AOL, Sky, and BT Broadband are facing criticism for failing to protect kids from objectionable and shocking images over the Internet.

The Church of England invests millions of dollars in ISPs which are under review due to pornography related issues.

A spokesman for Church of England said that members of their ethical investment advisory group are working on new regulations concerning pornography by taking into account the fact that it is easily accessible these days.

The Church criticised the failure of a law introduced in 2009 that focused on eliminating images of torture, rape, and other extreme kinds of sexual violence including necrophilia and bestiality.
