Anti-porn MP caught on sex websites

An Indonesian MP who helped pass a tough anti-pornography law has resigned after being caught watching sexually explicit videos on his computer during a parliamentary debate.
So..., let me get this straight, he was tired of debating and begun to mast-ur-debate? *wink*

*cough*

Continuing on...

A photographer saw the man, a member of the staunchly Islamic Prosperous Justice Party, gazing at the porn sites last Friday.

The blurred images have been published on the front pages of newspapers and commentators said the MP, who has uses the single name Arifinto, should be prosecuted under the terms of the law which he helped pass.

Arifinto, 50, has apologised to his constituents and said he is stepping down from parliament immediately.

"It's my decision," said the father of five, insisting he was not acting on the orders of his party. "Nobody tried to coerce me."
The shocker of this article is this:

The anti-porn law was used in January to sentence Nazril "Ariel" Irham, lead singer of the country's most popular band Peterpan, to 40 months in jail after two home-made sex tapes found their way to the internet.

The editor in chief of Playboy Indonesia was last year sentenced to two years behind bars.
Who the hell would name their band 'Peterpan'? Oh... yeah, the getting jail time for having a sex tape is pretty messed up, too. :cute:

What I want to know is WHY? Why bother being against something if you yourself enjoy it/are going to do it? If you yourself have no problem looking at porn, why did you bother to help pass a bill against pornographic material? It boggles the mind!!

I think the most disturbing thing about this (if I'm reading it correctly) is they made the law AFTER the fact, and are still using it to charge him.

Why would he be stupid enough to browse through porn sites at work, considering his job? :dork:

Ooh I just checked Indonesia's anti pornography law. It's VERY strict: (source wiki)

Bill on Pornography.[1] The bill states that anyone engaging in pornography and pornoaction is punishable by law, pornoaction being a self-invented word that means "actions deemed indecent." This includes, but is not limited to, public acts such as spouses kissing[2], women showing their navels or shoulders, and people sunbathing in bikinis or swimwear.
Oh wow, I'd be guilty of pornography over there!
