Jerry Barnett from WeConsent.org successfully defends pornography on an ITN online debate against Gail Dines.  Watch it here.

Beijing: In a new crackdown on online pornography, China has shut down 225 websites and other content sharing and social media sites, the government said.

More than 30,000 blog or microblog accounts were also closed during a campaign that started late last month, according to a statement released by the State Internet Information Office (SIIO).

Among the websites were several photo-sharing, video-sharing and gaming websites that were not registered with the government, state-run Xinhua news agency quoted the statement as saying.

Over 79,000 tips regarding more than 450 websites were received during the campaign, the statement said.

The SIIO, together with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the Ministry of Public Security, is investigating enterprises that illegally allow providers of obscene content to obtain Internet access, as well as people who run pornographic websites, according to the statement.

Pastor Craig Gross and porn star Nina Hartley met Thursday evening in the Student Center to debate the merits and demerits of pornography in front of 450 students.

The event, hosted by the Kennesaw Activities Board, was initially supposed to feature porn star Ron Jeremy, who is recovering from recent operations to correct an aneurysm near his heart.

Gross asked porn actress Nina Hartley to stand in. He and Hartley debated the event once before.

Gross is the founder of xxxchurch.com, a website dedicated to helping people overcome pornography addictions. He started the website after realizing that many of the people he knew struggled with porn in their personal lives.

He and Ron Jeremy started The Great Porn Debate about five years ago, and the two began touring the country speaking at churches and universities.

The government of Iceland has opened a consultation process into whether violent pornography should be banned completely. VoR's Tim Ecott asked Halla Gunnarsdottir, political adviser to the interior minister, why the Icelandic government was so concerned.

With a population of just over 300,000 people, the island has a reputation for high levels of social care and a tight-knit sense of community.

This at the matter of concern because the mainstream porn Internet today it’s not just a sexually explicit material or a set of images of people having sex but it’s a very violent and degrading material.

So it’s very much the idea that the Government in Iceland is wanting to consider - whether this very violent, what you would call hard-core pornography, is likely to be affecting the minds of young Icelanders?

The Atid Echad ("One Future") party informed Central Elections Committee Chairman Elyakim Rubinstein that it is withdrawing its candidacy from Tuesday's general election. Yehzkel Schetlzer, the party's chairperson, was also its sole Knesset candidate.

The party's platform focused on battling online pornography, which it dubs "the new drug." After the party's withdrawal, the number of parties vying for a seat in Israel's 19th Knesset on Tuesday's election is 32. (Telem Yahav)
