Abstract

In this piece, the author deconstructs several main motivations, limitations, and rules regarding censorship from a Catholic standpoint. It appears the author is okay with censorship if it is used sparingly and within certain guidelines, but appears more to favor personal discretion. He also states that protecting children is a worthwhile aim but that this can be achieved by making restricted areas for children in libraries or newsstands, so materials stay available to mature persons.
