When we shorten the flex of an electric kettle to keep it out of a small child's reach we do not call that interfering with civil liberties. We do it, even if there is only the slightest risk of harm.
If we are prepared to protect children from bodily harm, why should we be squeamish about protecting them from moral and spiritual harm?
The injuries, though mostly invisible, are deep and real. If I were given the opportunity to burn every video nasty in the land tomorrow, I'd do it. There, I've done it. I've come out. I am a nanny.
