Bravo: we need more of this. InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), which includes Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza, has firmly told all of its hotels: "No porn--or else."
Life Site News reports that, "InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), which has 4,900 properties in 100 nations around the globe, had an existing policy not to show films rated NC-17 or above, but it strengthened penalties for hotels that refused to comply with its standards."
Dawn Hawkins, the executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, said, “Increasingly hoteliers are recognizing that pornography is an exploitative means of profit, partly due to pornography’s link to prostitution, sex trafficking, and sexual violence.”
She applauds the hotel group's decision: “We are grateful to Intercontinental Hotels Group for the priority the company placed on working with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation in order to ensure that none of its hotels profit from sexual exploitation."
We're applauding it too! How great would it be if more people and companies took a stand like this! Do you agree?
