    No doubt, the fact that an act is legal, does not make that act virtuous. While it is not legal to coerce anyone into condoning the engaging in or affirmation of indecent acts of any nature, unfortunately, there are those who lack the ability to discriminate between acts that respect decency, and in this case, the spirit of The Communications Decency Act, and acts that do not. What does it profit anyone, while attempting to engage the world, "to lose their very soul", when we can know through both Faith and reason, that choosing an act that is decent, over that which is indecent, will always result in an increase in virtue. Perhaps Facebook, for the sake of decency will reconsider. Only good can come from that which is decent.
