An Indonesian member of the Islamic Prosperous Justice Party known only as Arifinto has become the latest religious hypocrite who does not practice what he preaches. Arifinto, 50, is one of the leaders of the staunch Islamic party and helped lead the fight to pass a tough anti-pornography law. Arifinto, however, is shown in the articles below, watching sexually explicit videos on his computer on the floor of the Parliament during a debate.
Arifinto apologized and stepped down. Under his own pornography law, a person can go to jail for up to 15 years from such acts as kissing in public or the exposure of a woman’s “sensual” body parts or displaying “erotic” artworks. It also includes storing or possessing pornographic material.
The Islamic party has led such movements as stopping dancers from gyrating to bring the population into forced adherence with morality standards.
