The following comes from an August 19 OneNewsNow article by Bill Bumpas:
Pro-family groups are rejoicing over a major hotel chain’s decision to remove pay-per-view porn from its rooms.
Hilton Hotels & Resorts has decided to change its policy and will now remove all on-demand pornographic videos from all of its properties, worldwide. Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, says his organization is excited that Hilton is finally getting out of the “adult” porn business after they and other pro-family groups have lobbied the hotel giant for more than 20 years to do so.
“Hilton says they have listened to their customers and they’ve determined that this is not a part of their business program going forward,” Sharps shares with OneNewsNow. “It’s important for us as customers and consumers to let Hilton know how much we appreciate their decision. It’s important to say thanks when a company does the right thing, just as it’s important to [point it out] when they’re doing something wrong.”
Sharp says pro-family groups will continue to monitor other hotel chains across the nation. “One that is of particular concern now and we hope will follow in the footsteps [of Hilton] is the Holiday Inn brands,” he describes. “Holiday Inn and many of their hotels continue to offer the adult video pay-per-view programming.”
Just like they did for decades against Hilton, Sharp says they will urge Holiday Inn to take a stand against sexual exploitation.
Hilton Hotels had previously been listed on the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s “Dirty Dozen List,” which names 12 mainstream organizations contributing to sexual exploitation.
Other hotel brands that have dropped pay-per-view pornography in their outlets include Marriott, Omni, Drury, Ritz-Carlton, and Nordic Choice.
