Text:A Parliamentary committee wants censorship laws changed so material such as fundamentalist Christian films inciting hatred of gays can be banned. A government select committee has issued a report critical of a 2000 Court of Appeal decision that upheld the right of a fundamentalist group, Living Word, to distribute two controversial American anti-gay videos. The report was issued on the day of a planned Parliamentary debate over a bill by United Future MP Marc Alexander that sought to change the law after the court allowed the French film Baise Moi to be screened with an R18 certificate and warnings of its violence and graphic sex content.
