No premarital sex on television please, lawmakers urge

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A number of Idaho lawmakers are targeting a topic they say should be taboo on television - premarital sex.

And they're taking a symbolic stand.

Lawmakers are against references to premarital sex in dramas, comedies, reality and talk shows as well as advertisements.

"We need to take a stand and stand up for for the morality of what is best for the citizens of Idaho," said Rep. Darrell Bolz, (R-Caldwell).

The measure that easily passed the house state affairs committee would urge the federal government and the FCC to prohibit the portrayal, even implied, or even the discussion of premarital sex on TV between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The measure that's moving forward is not a bill. Under the rules of the Idaho Legislature, it's called a Joint Memorial and is simply a symbolic statement.

People KBOI News talked with call the effort a waste of time.

"I think its infringement on freedom of speech, don't want the government telling me what I can or cannot watch," Viola Hauck of Boise said.

Supporters say the Idaho Constitution requires government to protect the virtue and purity of the home.

Whoa! This will put a lot of sitcom writers out to pasture. They can't write anything that doesn't refer to trashy sex.

Let's name a show that has no connection to premarital sex!

"Iron Chef"!

And, uh.... damn, it's a short list.

Keep it up, crackpots - I just love it when you show just how out of step you are with the real world.
