(CNN) -- Iceland is working on banning Internet pornography, calling explicit online images a threat to children.
'"There is a strong consensus building in Iceland," Halla Gunnarsdottir, an adviser to the nation's Interior Minister, told England's Daily Mail. "We have so many experts, from educationalists to the police and those who work with children behind this, that this has become much broader than party politics.
"At the moment, we are looking at the best technical ways to achieve this. But surely if we can send a man to the moon, we must be able to tackle porn on the Internet."
Such a step is somewhat surprising among Western nations that, for the most part, champion free-speech rights. But the move wouldn't be unprecedented in the island nation.
Iceland has had laws banning the printing and distribution of pornography for years, but those laws haven't been updated to include the Web. And two years ago, the nation's parliament banned strip clubs, saying they violate the rights of the women who work in them.

They may not have the astronauts or space program they believe they have, but they appear confident that they have "experts, from educationalists to the police" confirming that porn is a threat to children. Whew! I thought it might be a bunch of idiot politicians trying to fix the world with a piece of legislation. They may want to Google "prohibition" while they're at it - provided they haven't banned Google yet.

As Hunter Thompson said, when the going gets tough, the weird turn pro. Evidently they haven't heard the term fish porn.
