Our take: The hotel industry at large seeks to make profits where ever they can, even if it means allowing for the consumption of unsavory, pornographic material. This letter written by Robert P. George and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf is a call for the hotel industry to rise to a higher standard and stop catering pornographic material in their establishments.
Furthermore, we trust that you need no reminding of the fact that somethings being legal does not make it right. For example, denying black men and women and their families access to hotel roomsand tables in restaurants, as well as other amenities and opportunitieswas, for countless shameful years, perfectly legal. In some circumstances, it even made financial sense for hotel owners and operators in racist cultures to engage in segregationist practices even when not compelled by law to do so. However, this was deeply morally wrong. Shame on those who denied their brothers and sisters of color the equal treatment to which they were morally entitled. Shame on you if you hide behind legality to peddle immorality in the pursuit of money.
