    first off, the aclu is probably answering a complaint here JB

    say what you will of them, they'd back Satan himself if he had a b*tch about his civil rights

    2ndly, not all prisions operate the same, for instance down in biblethumperville, i'm sure porn is a no no. In my correspondence to an incarcerated individual in NYC, i'm hearing the closed circuit tv changes from daily nascar to nightly porn

    i guess someone figured out doin' themselves is less hassle than doin' each other...

    You realize that the linked article in your OP makes no direct quote from the ACLU about porn.

    Here is one directly from an ACLU representative...

    ""The latest thing they have come up with in response for preliminary injunction was the notion that we are trying to allow pornography into the jail. Absolutely nothing could be further for the truth," ACLU spokesman Will Matthews told the Daily News." LINK


    In addition here is the actual complaint

    The Detention Center has a policy and practice of allowing detainees to order from a publisher, and receive by mail, a soft-cover Bible – but no other books, magazines, or newspapers. On July 12, 2010, First Sergeant K. Habersham, Berkeley County Detention Center, sent the following email to Paul Wright, Editor, Prison Legal News:
    "Our inmates are only allowed to receive soft back bibles in the mail directly from the publisher. They are not allowed to have magazines, newspapers, or any other type of books."​

    http://www.aclu.org/files/assets/2010-10-6-PLNvBCS-Complaint.pdf



    Sounds like a misrepresentation of what the lawsuit is about. If the Jail was allowing Bibles but rejecting all other magazines, newspapers, and softback (non-stable) books, then ya - I can see that as an issue.

    Criminals give up thier civil rights.

    They should be happy to get to read the bible, instead of sitting in thier cells with nothing to do.

    I would assume that most prisons have libraries. The inmates are not allowed their own subscriptions to magazines for obvious reasons. This is not just about porn. There are many other "objectionable" materials that are prohibited in jail. And yes, they do give up rights in prison - namely - freedom. Hopefully the ACLU will lose. Otherwise, we'll see copies of "Al Qaeda Times" and bombmakers handbooks.

    It would be easier to list the ones that don't have libraries. Prisons or jails.

    Mags have staples in them, thats metal. Theres not a lot you can do with it, unless you are a criminal, then there's lots of things that can get done.

    so really this is a issue with only being allowed to buy bibles and not other religious books, magazines or whatever then?

    the jail is not "only" full of bad Christians I would guess, so they may as well allow everyone to order what suits their own beliefs

    If inmates buying and paying, then I see no problem.
