You want porn with that? Anti-porn group urges McDonald's, Starbucks to filter smut out of restaurant Wi-Fi service By Dustin Siggins

Worldwide, McDonald's and Starbucks have 25,000 locations, virtually all of them offering customers free access to the internet. And an American group dedicated to ending pornography, online sexual predators, and illegal use of pornography is urging them to use their size to lead the restaurant and cafe industries in filtering pornography on-site.

Donna Rice Hughes, CEO of the anti-pornography organization Enough Is Enough® (EIE), told LifeSiteNews.com that she sent letters to both McDonald's and Starbucks seven months ago, asking them to take the lead on filtering pornography for on-location Wi-Fi. Now, she's done waiting.

Rice Hughes told LifeSiteNews that both McDonald's and Starbucks responded to an appeal from British Prime Minister David Cameron to internet providers "to filter child pornography and pornography" in the United Kingdom. They led, and others followed.

"Here, we're discussing Wi-Fi providers, and Starbucks and McDonald's were theleaders in the UK. They're not doing it here,” she said. “We've been waiting for [these companies] to do this for seven months. What about America's kids? Chick-Fil-A is already doing it here, [as is] Panera Bread."

As a result, they started a petition.  To read more click here.
