He has often been referred to as the “Porn Czar” and Republican State Senator Todd Weiler admits he has a passion for getting rid of pornography, although it has nothing to do with his religion as some people claim.
On KVNU’s For the People program Thursday, Weiler was a guest and he said for each of the last four years he has sponsored legislation aimed at lessening the pornography problems in Utah.
“If a parent gets counseling or treatment or therapy for a child who has been exposed,” explained Sen. Weiler, “or who, they believe, is compulsively using pornography you can actually sue and try to recover the damages for that. We are the first state in the nation to recognize that.
“By the same token, the same legislation I passed this year also says that a distributor of pornography, if they do two things, can be immune from these types of lawsuits.”
Weiler said although this is very important to him, he is also focusing on other issues. He is passionate about such things as clean air and Medicaid expansion.
