The president of a major cable television company urged Roman
Catholic bishops Thursday to find out why the Internet can be both
"an electronic pew" and a vehicle that is "stunningly immoral." To
underscore his point about the moral dangers of the Internet, he
talked about the "Jennicam" Web site (http://www.jennicam.org), where
a young woman lets a camera in her apartment chronicle her every
movement, including having sex. Tele-Communications Inc. President
Leo Hindery said the Internet can be powerful tool for good, easing
communications between church leaders and congregations and helping
parishioners communicate with each other in an "electronic pew." See

I wonder how long this blow hard sits in front of Jennicam in moral outrage?
