Christian Australia felt Adrian Lynes film of Lolita went too far - it violated Gods Laws by validating and encouraging paedophilia. The Christian Right gathered en masse to lobby the Australian Parliament to ban the film and in so doing place Gods Law above freedom of speech: religious morality vs.

human rights to freedom of information.Did they succeed?The case was one of the most hotly debated in Australian censorship history, polarizing the religious community and the civil libertarian / free speech movement in Australia, a country with no constitutional guarantee of free speech, unlike the USA. Yet, the ringleader of the anti-censorship push and a protector of public morals and true Australian wowser, was herself covertly embezzling taxpayer funds in a travel rort.

The case was to be the most influential in recent Aussie censorship law, ushering in a conservative creep that would make Australia categorically the most censorious of any so-called democracy.Featuring actual government documents and censor reports, Lolita vs. Gods Law is an actual case history extracted and augmented for ebook from former National Film & Sound Archive SAR Research Fellow Robert Cettls on-going research into Australias secret film censorship history: in ebook, the secret censors are secret no more!
