Some good news is that Joanna Angel, one of the top 7 Jewish porn stars, has not been disowned by her Orthodox parents. Instead, they support her in her career choice.
“There were a few distant aunts, uncles and cousins who got angry at my mom and dad for not disowning me, but all it did was make us closer,” Angel told the newspaper, adding, “They were like: ‘Don’t tell us how to raise our daughter!’’”That's pretty cool of them - refusing to disown their daughter.
In an interview last year with Vice, Angel (her original name is Mostov) told of growing up observant and attending Jewish day schools and summer camps. While she is no longer Orthodox, she told Vice she still fasts on Yom Kippur and avoids eating bread during Passover.
Meanwhile, the Russian Orthodox church is offering clean WiFi in its churches - without porn or any mention at all of homosexuality.
“We’re not planning to limit access to any internet resources, just delete everything that brings evil to people under the guise of goodness,” Bogdasarov said.Oh they're not planning to limit access to any internet resources! It's just that all this stuff is going to get deleted, that's all! Much of it isn't even porn, by the way - it's just a normal sexual orientation.
One thing that users won’t be able to access is any mention of homosexuality.
According to Alexei Protopopov, director of child-safe internet vendor Crystal Protection which is setting up the new network, only information that religious leaders decide does not “disturb believers’ feelings” will be accessible.
News articles that are “seamy” – such as those mentioning a “nontraditional sexual orientation” – will not be available over the Wi-Fi networks, Protopopov said.
It's because the internet contains many threats to users, including recruitment materials for Christian sects and Islamic State, pornography and “distorted versions of history”.
Oh yes, time to block any distorted histories. Official State Church Sanctioned versions of history only please.
It's funny that people need this sort of filtering. Curiously, I'm able to browse the web at work for hours without running into any pornography at all.
