A battle won

From WorldNetDaily:

Adelphia, the large cable company that began this month to offer hard-core pornographic movies on its system, has stopped the practice and backed off its plans.

"Some concern has been expressed over this type of adult programming. Adelphia will remove it from all of its systems," the Denver Post quotes Adelphia spokesman Paul Jacobson as saying.

Earlier this month, Adelphia, the fifth-largest cable provider, began offering the porn to its Southern California markets. In response, several pro-family organizations, including the American Family Association and Concerned Women for America, began campaigns to target the company. Those groups now are declaring victory.

It's surprising that Adelphia didn't deny that the pro-family groups had any affect on their decision. These types of businesses usually do that right after responding to the pressure, so as not to encourage more people to get involved in protecting families.
