Censorship?


#1

I was reading a history book and it just occured to me and this may be bumb but, I am still curious. Does the Catholic Church have a position on Censorship? Thanks and God bless.

It does regarding porn:

2354* Pornography* consists in removing real or simulated sexual acts from the intimacy of the partners, in order to display them deliberately to third parties. It offends against chastity because it perverts the conjugal act, the intimate giving of spouses to each other. It does grave injury to the dignity of its participants (actors, vendors, the public), since each one becomes an object of base pleasure and illicit profit for others. It immerses all who are involved in the illusion of a fantasy world. It is a grave offense. Civil authorities should prevent the production and distribution of pornographic materials.
