Morality in Media, Inc. (MIM) is an American non-profit, interfaith organization that was established in New York in 1962. MIM battles pornography and other forms of what it considers obscenity in the media.
In 1968, Father Hill, a president of MIM until death in 1985, was appointed to serve on the Presidential Commission on Obscenity and Pornography by President Lyndon B. Johnson. A report was submitted in 1970 that said all "adult" obscenity laws should be repealed. Fr. Hill co-authored a minority report describing the Commission's report as a "Magna Carta for the pornographers" with another Commission member, Dr. Winfrey Link. The U.S. Supreme Court recognized the Hill-Link minority report in upholding obscenity laws in 1973.
Under current president Robert W. Peters, MIM's current campaigns include:
Annual U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) grants of $150,000 in the 2005 and 2006 federal budgets funded MIM's review of citizen-generated obscenity complaints submitted to MIM's ObscenityCrimes.org website. 67,000 of the complaints deemed legitimate under the program had resulted in no obscenity prosecutions as of August, 2007. The grants were created by Congressional earmarks by U.S. Representative Frank Wolf of Virginia, and awarded through the DOJ's Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
