 US Hotels Urged to 'ban Porn Content in Rooms' By Christian And Muslim Scholars

An appeal to ban adult entertainment in rooms was made to big hotel groups by a group of Christian and Muslim scholars in the United States.

In a jointly authored letter, Christian and Muslim scholars called on the CEOs of Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Choice and Starwood hotels, to stop adult entertainment as 'a commitment to human dignity and the common good.'


"Instead of trying to move people by protest and demonstrations and threats of boycotts, we make a simple appeal to the consciences of the corporate executive whose businesses have gotten into pornography," the letter said.

According to Fox News, Dr. Robert George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf wrote the letter from Zaytunga College.

Hilton Hotel, in a statement, pointed out that 'all adult content is only accessible to adult guests who request access and choose to view it.'

Starwood and Hyatt Hotel have made no comment on the matter.

Hyatt Hotels had earlier said that they make it 'easy to block adult content in the room, which must be selected and paid for separately from all regular television channels.'

"We also take steps to ensure that guests will not be inadvertently exposed to this programming," they had added.
