From Raymond Levesque re pornography in hotels.

Greetings in the Lord! Please accept my congratulations and heart-felt thanks for the magnificent work that you and your publication have been doing, over the years, for the Catholic Church in Canada.

I have been a subscriber for quite a while now, and, in my estimation, Catholic Insight continues to be the best Canadian Catholic newsmagazine available today.

With this letter I am enclosing a letter that I sent to Choice Hotels International, less than a month ago ... While we have been snoozing, pornography has quietly become a huge, dangerous beast, lurking in our midst. As my letter to the hotel chain relates, I was flabbergasted to discover that porno films were openly and casually offered to hotel patrons, along with other more "conventional" fare. Such a thing would have been unheard of, even ten years ago!

Perhaps it's time for Catholic Insight to do an in-depth study on the scourge of pornography ... The proven scientific facts concerning the harm that pornographic images can do to the human psyche, the inroads that the multi-million dollar porno industry has made into the mainstream culture, and its new, open "respectability" in more and more areas, such as hotel chains. How our government is permitting all this to go on, under our very noses, etc.

Once again, Father, many thanks for the great job you are doing. Catholic Insight continues to be a voice for the voiceless.
