Ex-Rabbi Co-founder of a private equity firm explains why he acquired Pornhub

234
89030

Solomon Friedman is one of the new owners of PornHub. He is an attorney and rabbi (some reports say he is a former rabbi). His private equity firm took over Mindgeek, the umbrella company of virtually every porn site.

He vowed to save PornHub from ruin and make it a better place. What he means by a better place might not be what most people think is “better.”

In the clip below, Solomon coaches defense attorneys of pedophiles on how to get lesser sentences for their sex offender clients. When the prosecutor next to him argues that the 30-day sentences for pedophiles back in 2009 weren’t enough, Solomon jokes, “the good old days.” (No one laughs…)

Nothing against rabbis since he’s rogue; we have rogue priests in my religion, but how do people reconcile this with religion? It’s not funny. It ruins children’s lives.

According to Yahoo Finance, this is why he bought it:

“When a potential MindGeek acquisition became available, we took an open-minded, unbiased look at it,” says Friedman. “What we found absolutely blew our minds. We found a company that had created the best-in-class online trust and safety automation tools. … We’re of the belief that these tools must be shared with the larger internet.”

The tools, he says, are designed to verify the identity of the people in videos, as well as their age and consent to posting, using both human and automated checks. They also create digital fingerprints to flag pre-existing content to combat piracy and have a portal designed to help law enforcement officials collect necessary data.

“We see enormous value beyond the adult industry for those tools,” he says. “We see enormous value in the online trust and safety tool. I have no doubt that people are going to be hearing more about that and its applications well beyond adult. We feel we have a responsibility to develop those tools beyond their current uses.”

He’s also looking at it going mainstream:

While ECP sees value in the technology behind Pornhub and other MindGeek properties, it’s not discounting the substantial revenues in the content itself. Friedman notes that just a few years ago, cannabis was a taboo subject in Canada and much of the U.S., but has since become one that is openly discussed. The private equity firm believes adult entertainment is on the cusp of that same sort of mainstreaming.

“We’re of the view that there’s real potential for adult audiences,” he says. “Adults need a place on the internet. And the opportunity for creating those spaces and ensuring those are safe and stigma-free has real potential.”

So, it’s for money, the tools, and mainstreaming porn? Didn’t Sodom and Gomorrah happen because this stuff went mainstream?

 

Correction: Mr. Friedman is only a partial owner. The headline was changed to clarify. Also, he rejected the teachings as a rabbi.

The Bible is the book of Christian mythology. Really. ‍♂️‍♂️‍♂️ Isn’t it weird how gods never write books – only men do. Why is it that the supposed all-powerful creators of everything, can’t write? Gods can supposedly create universes with their magical powers – but they just can’t write!!! YHWH didn’t write the Torah – men did. Allah didn’t write the Quran – men did. Brahma, Vishnu, and the other Hindu gods, didn’t write the Bhagavad Gita or the Vedas – men did. Zeus didn’t write any of his holy books – men did. And your god didn’t write the bible – men did. you’re not a critical thinker.

“Jewish” came about from:

A) Yehuda a Son of Jacob

and

B) from the Rump Israelite state of Yehuda that besides the majority were from Judah / Jews ( Judeans/ Yahud/ Yahudim) contained Benjamin, Levites, AND refugees and returnees from the 10 Tribes ( that is they were not 100% “lost”).

In the Scroll of Ester is where one sees a Man form Benjamin ( Mordochai Bilshan) referred to as a “Yahudi” ( Jew / Judean ).

Not murder, put on trial. You need to warn the person first, and then you need 2 witnesses who see the act after the warning.

So anyone who would have been put to death by a Jewish court back then did so out of spite.

Basically anyone who did not want to keep the Shabbat could just pick up and go to Tyre or Egypt…

The Tablets of the Ten Commandments WERE written by God himself, but it was just the basics.

Then Moses wrote down the words of God in a scroll, but that too was just the basics…the real understanding of the Torah was taught from God to Moses, from Moses to the elders…

The elders ( Zkanim) tought the rest of the people along with Moses and set up courts and police…a system of Justice. Maybe not what you would want to do…but that is how they lived up until the Roman Empire and it’s Byzanitne fragments.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Isn’t it interesting that the Ten Commandments are the ONLY part of the bible your god actually wrote himself – well, carved himself (or so the fictional story goes). Can you just imagine god chipping away at that stone with a heavy mallet? His brow all sweaty. His hands blistering. I am sure he was taking his own name in vain the whole time for undertaking the ridiculous task. And to add insult to injury, the whole carved stone thing turned out to be a very poor ideas: not only did Moses break the most important 10 laws humanity would ever know (which required god to pick up that cursed hammer and chisel again) but the second copy were lost, never to be found again. ‍♂️‍♂️‍♂️ Even more disastrous though was the fact that your god wrote the commandments in a language that would soon die off, and he wrote them for a mostly illiterate population who could not read them in the first place! I hate to break it to you you simpleton, but gods aren’t real. And you’re god is no exception. Don’t be so gullible.

HA HA, THANK YOU. You admit the story is God wrote something…

Moses was a Levite, and while a very good person, um he had a real temper…as a Levite I understand.

Our tradition states the letters were floating in the tablets, to make it obvious it was from the “finger” of God. Now his breaking of the tablets meant he had to carve the next set, and then God inscribed on them once more.

God was not really all THAT angry at Moses for doing so…in fact Moses Moses was rewarded with NOT taking a deal whereby he would become a “great nation” instead of the others…but God blessed Moses in any case from his son Eliezer and his son Rachavyah…from them came the whole 12th division of Levites ( See Talmud Brachot 7a and Chronicles).

Hebrew never died.Scholars leaned it, and wrote books in it even when it was not spoken commonly.

Israelite in most generations were very literate people.

My only concern with that is how many people will perish this time ( yet again) because they did not uphold the Torah.

God spoke to the people who heard the words at Mt. Sinai.

Prophecy will return, but that timing is not up to me. Still I pray for it to return…then you and so many lost individuals will understand.

Until then you will just be hurling insults at people who intend you no insult…

Isn’t it interesting to think that there have been thousands of early questions about our universe that were once explained as “the work of god”. But as we became more educated and learned more about our world, those supernatural answers were replaced with real world answers. The interesting part of this however, is that during this time, NONE of those early questions were actually found to be the work of a god; “God” has NEVER turned out to actually be a correct answer to any question – EVER.

The god of the bible is no different then the thousands of other gods we now classify as mythology. It really is that simple.

Isn’t it interesting to think that, over the past 2,000 years, BILLIONS of Christians have believed that Jesus would return during their lifetime. And EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM have gone to their graves COMPLETELY WRONG. And just as they have ALL been COMPLETELY WRONG, so will you. Jesus was just a man who is STILL dead. And dead people don’t come back to life. Believing that they do is a superstitious belief that has ALWAYS been wrong. Keep pretending that your reality will some how be different then the BILLIONS of Christians that have come before you. But know that you are just fooling yourself.

Detailed historical records document that during the early Roman Empire, THOUSANDS of people were crucified. And of those THOUSANDS that were crucified, only ONE body has EVER been discovered. If a missing body is evidence of resurrection, then THOUSANDS of other people have also rose from the dead.

You’re projecting again.

An obsession is when youre convinced of an idea and refuse to consider evidence to the contrary. You know, like religious beliefs.

Isn’t it interesting that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines “delusional” as “A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence.” Superstitious religious beliefs like yours fit precisely within that definition. But under pressure from religious organizations, the editors made a specific exclusion for religion. But crazy is still crazy.

Did you know there is as much evidence supporting the existence of pink fairies circling the moon as there is supporting the existence of your god? But I guess that is why they call it faith, right?

Here’s a SIMPLE TEST to see if you’re a brainwashed cult member. Tell me how you do:

If you have the most BASIC critical thinking skills and you truly studied religious claims with an open and objective mind, then there are facts that can change your mind. As an example, there are an INFINITE VARIETY of things your god could do that would immediately and unequivocally convince everyone, INCLUDING ME, of his existence. Yet your god chooses to NOT do ANY of them. But if your god did ANY of them, my reaction would be, “Well look at that, I was wrong.”

So now let’s see how open your mind really is; let’s see what kind of critical thinking skills you really have. Tell me what I could show you that would convince you that your god is identical to all the other gods you could choose to worship, but are CERTAIN are not real? Just ONE thing? Because their are an INFINITE variety of things you could show me that would instantly and unequivocally convince me that your god is actually real. Brainwashed cult members can never think of ANYTHING.

Jesus didn’t die for anyone’s sins. That is just a 1st century superstitious belief. From purely a logical point of view, you can’t hurt an all powerful god. And you certainly can’t kill one. If you weren’t a brainwashed member of a doomsday cult, this would not be difficult to understand.

Jesus was not a god; he was just a man. That is why he is STILL dead after 2,000 years. How many more thousands of years have to pass by before you accept the fact that he is STILL dead and will NEVER be returning?

Lol! “SATAN!!!???” I bet you are also REALLY afraid of black cats aren’t you. Let’s stay focused for a moment and discuss one very particular aspect of your superstitious beliefs: the devil.

I would like for you to do two things for each question below: 1. answer the question. And 2. state the source of information you relied on to answer the question.

1. Where does the devil live?
2. What does he eat?
3. How does he travel around?
4. Why don’t scientists study devils and their habitat?
5. Why aren’t devils discussed in any science books?
6. Why are devils only mentioned in fiction and books about mythology?
7. Who do you think would know more about devils: a witch doctor from the jungles of Malaysia who has had no contact with western civilization, or the entire science faculty from MIT?
8. How do devils reproduce?
9. What life form have devils evolved from?
10. Do devils get sick?
11. How long do they live for?
12. Do they have brains like humans?
13. What type of circulatory system do they have?
14. Has anyone taken a photo or video of one?
15. What language do they speak?
16. How do they communicate with one another?
17. What languages do they understand?
18. How large is the devil population?
19. What is the life expectancy of a devil?
20. How long do Devils care for their young?

Now go back and change the word “devil” to “leprechaun” and answer all the same questions again. See any difference???

I thought that a Christian’s ultimate goal was to be with Jesus. If you really believe that is true, then shouldn’t you think that it is just wonderful that babies are aborted and get to go to heaven immediately? Don’t they get to spend more time living with Jesus? Isn’t that better then waiting around here on this horrible earth (the devils domain) for about 80 years first? I suspect that the uncertainty is because most Christians doubt the truth of their faith – which is actually a good thing. For some reason, Christians all want to go to heaven – but none of them want to die. But as faith is just wishful thinking, I can understand why.

If you think that heaven is actually a real place but you go to doctors when you are sick – you know your gods not real.

If you think that your god plans to murder all those that don’t think that he’s real by burning them in a lake of fire – and youre kind of okay with that – you’re a deranged psychopath.

WHY DO YOU THINK YOUR GOD NEEDS YOU to DEFEND HIM AND SPEAK FOR HIM??? Because ALL the other gods that you KNOW are not real have the EXACT SAME PROBLEM your god has.

Let’s see you use some CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS to explain that to me. I’m waiting….

I just can’t figure out why anyone would choose to worship a god that threatens to torture you if you actually use the mind he supposedly has given you. Most people are opposed to sadistic dictators; you claim to have a “relationship” with one – and to love him.

There are thousands of other gods you could worship but choose to reject. But your rejection of these other gods comes at a cost: all of these other gods intend to punish you when you are dead. So tell me how concerned you are about their impending wrath? Because that is the exact same level of concern I have about the impending wrath of your god. Pretty laughable isn’t it.

When you can’t figure out why your god doesn’t answer your prayers, just remember, your god is imaginary. And that’s why he also doesn’t answer prayers to save aborted fetuses. How many abortions did Jesus stop today? Oh yeah, ZERO!!! Just like yesterday. And the day before. Gods aren’t real. Dont be a superstitious fool.

People look to Revelation as a doomsday scenario, which it is. However, most fail to see the romance part of it.
Revelation is a warning to the people of what’s to come or what we’re living through right now.
If one turns from evil, sin, wickedness, etc., one will be rewarded with an eternal freedom.
A freedom from evil, sin, wickedness, etc.
To some, it seems too good to be true. Maybe it is but I will say even if it isn’t true my life has been for the better since I surrendered my life to Christ.
I was heavily into porn, drugs, drinking, foul language and now I’m not.
I tried to prove the bible wrong and could not.

“I was heavily into porn, drugs, drinking, foul language and now I’m not.“

Jesus didn’t help you. He’s STILL dead. You just finally decided to take personal responsibility for your life like most people do. Most people just do that at an earlier age than you did. It’s not hard math.

As for the Bible – The Bible is a collection of contradictory myths and folk tales, mixed in with a little history, originally written in an obscure and now dead language, translated differently over a hundred different times just in English, reinterpreted, modified and amended on numerous occasions over a period spanning at least 5,000 years. Nonetheless, the text is regarded as the written manifestation of your gods ethics. Due to its hopeless ambiguity, it is and has been subject to endless debate regarding its interpretations. (Unfortunately, your god never speaks and thus, your god does nothing to clarify the ambiguity. Oddly that is a problem all gods suffer from. Zeus and Thor never speak either. They always need people to interpret their words and speak on their behalf, just like your god.) As a consequence, there has been an endless parade of interpretations of the Bible with more than one hundred different translations of the bible producing over 40,000 different Christian denominations, each with their own unique interpretation of the Bible. And you think this is the work of a god!? That’s Hilarious!

I thought that gods were just fictional characters in ancient superstitious beliefs. Isn’t your god just like Zeus? Here, I’ll show you what I mean:

Please tell me what your god actually does that Zeus doesn’t do? Let’s start with a list comparing Zeus with Jesus.

1. Jesus doesn’t heal christians because if he did, they would have longer average life expectancies than similarity situated non-Christians – and they don’t. Zeus doesn’t heal Greeks because if he did, they would have longer average life expectancies than similarity situated non-Greeks – and they don’t.
2. Jesus doesn’t prevent bad things from happening to good people. Zeus doesn’t prevent bad things from happening to good people.
3. Jesus doesn’t stop priests from raping young boys. Zeus doesn’t stop priests from raping young boys.
4. Jesus doesn’t stop anyone from having an abortion. Zeus doesn’t stop anyone from having an abortion.
5. Jesus never defends his ethics himself but relies upon his followers to speak on his behalf. Zeus never defends his ethics himself but relies upon his followers to speak on his behalf.
6. Jesus never makes TV appearances to clarify his book. Zeus never makes TV appearances to clarify his books.
7. Jesus never talks and instead, needs his followers to talk for him. Zeus never talks and instead, needs his followers to talk for him.
8. Jesus never writes anything. Zeus never writes anything.
9. Jesus needed men to write his book for him. Zeus needed men to write his books for him.
10. Jesus’s book is overflowing with ridiculous stories and obviously false claims. Zeus’s books are overflowing with ridiculous stories and obviously false claims.
11. Jesus is invisible. Zeus is invisible.
12. There is no clear and objective evidence supporting the claim that Jesus was magical. There is no clear and objective evidence supporting the claim that Zeus was magical.
13. Jesus’s book is filled with bizarre superstitious rituals such as sacrificing animals to appease their god. Zeus’s books are filled with bizarre superstitious rituals such as sacrificing animals to appease their gods.
14. The existence of a magical Jesus is only documented in an ancient book written by superstitious and primitive men. The existence of a magical Zeus is only documented in ancient books written by superstitious and primitive men.
15. There are a million things Jesus could do that would immediately and unequivocally convince everyone that he is real, but he does none of them. There are a million things Zeus could do that would immediately and unequivocally convince everyone that he is real, but he does none of them.
16. Jesus doesn’t stop Christians from having their heads lopped off by Muslim extremists. Zeus doesn’t stop Christians from having their heads lopped off by Muslim extremists.
17. Jesus doesn’t feed starving children. Zeus doesn’t feed starving children.
18. The followers of Jesus don’t think that he does anything himself but claim that he has to “work through” people. The followers of Zeus don’t think that he does anything himself but claim that he has to “work through” people.

So what do you think your god actually does?

Isn’t it interesting to think that there have been thousands of early questions about our universe that were once explained as “the work of god”. But as we became more educated and learned more about our world, those supernatural answers were replaced with real world answers. The interesting part of this however, is that during this time, NONE of those early questions were actually found to be the work of a god; “God” has NEVER turned out to actually be a correct answer to any question – EVER.

The god of the bible is no different then the thousands of other gods we now classify as mythology. It really is that simple.”

If you have the most BASIC critical thinking skills and you truly studied religious claims with an open and objective mind, then there are facts that can change your mind. As an example, there are an INFINITE VARIETY of things your god could do that would immediately and unequivocally convince everyone, INCLUDING ME, of his existence. Yet your god chooses to NOT do ANY of them. But if your god did ANY of them, my reaction would be, “Well look at that, I was wrong.”

So now let’s see how open your mind really is; let’s see what kind of critical thinking skills you really have. Tell me what I could show you that would convince you that your god is identical to all the other gods you could choose to worship, but are CERTAIN are not real? Just ONE thing? Because their are an INFINITE variety of things you could show me that would instantly and unequivocally convince me that your god is actually real.

So when Jesus finally returns to dispense his 1st century barbarism, do you think he is going to go door-to-door and shoot non-believers in the face, or do you think he will really want to get his hands dirty and hack off heads with a dull knife like the Muslim extremists like to do?

More importantly, are you going to just sit by and watch the slaughter unfold, maybe enjoy a little popcorn and a cold drink, or do you think you will join in on the religious cleansing?

Isn’t Jesus just like Hitler? Hitler murdered all those that didn’t believe in him. But he took good care of his friends. And just like Hitler, Christians believe that Jesus will murder all those that don’t believe in him. But he will take good care of his friends. So if you are a sane and rational person who would never follow Hitler, why would you follow Jesus?

Actually God did speak to a whole nation At Mount SInai…600,000 plus males over 20, The Levites ( counted separately ), All the Ladies, the Children, males under 20…plus a large amount of Converts who Left Egypt…millions of people heard.

After that it became the domain of the prophets to receive messages…

I know you think that’s poppycock, but one day should you live long enough, you will see things that will help you to understand a deeper truth.

Science is wonderful, understanding the reality we live in is admirable. Many an Israelite and People from other nations as well, figure out just how complex this world is on a Micro and Macro scale.

Whether or not you believe in any book is really irrelevant. In the USSR most people were not raised in a religion, religion was basically banished from society. Because of that they did not need to counter with ( Neo) Darwinism, and actually taught people in University that it was just a theory and not the ultimate truth.

Once enrolled in higher science many people became convinced there must be a creator of some sort…the world, Galaxies ( and beyond) are too complex to explain ( macro). And when one looks at the cellular level it’s the same complex.

While not born in the USSR, Albert Einstein grew up a eating Pork, not religious at all. However he became convinced of the same thing, there must be a Creator.

Could be. It would be helpful if he gave more background on what motivated him in his life to come to such conclusions.

Some people see the evil done in the name “Religion” and decide to ignore ultimate truths. Other people were either raised that way, or possibly hurt by evil people who exploit religion to gain money, illicit sex and in the past Power.

I will tell you this Solomon Friedman was never a real Rabbi. The real chain of becoming a Rabbi started with Moses appointing the 70 Elders. That chain of tradition ( the 40 generations) ended in the Byzantine era.

Now we only have our texts written by the 40 generations to guide, and those who study them. Rabbi’s of today are supposed to be teachers of the law, and not deal in Sexual exploitation or anything of low moral character.

So I went to his Bio on the ECP page:
http://www.ethicalcapitalpartners.com/solomon-friedman

Here they brag about him receiving ordination in 2005 in Israel. I hope the Rabanut ( state sponsored Rabbinical court) or his private institution cancels his little piece of paper with a big title.

They also brag how he helped write some of Canada’s Gun Laws…has this person no shame?!!? The right of self defense is clear in the Torah. Unless we want to act like the Philistines and prevent people from having weapons! ( except themselves of course). Just look how that played out in Israel recently…it never goes good when we go off the path.

This Unethical person is Busha ( Embarrassment) to God and his own people…

Isn’t it weird how gods never write books – only men do. Why is it that the supposed all-powerful creators of everything, can’t write? Maybe the rabbi just knows that gods are just fictional characters found in ancient superstitious beliefs, so he didn’t view his “holy book” as a good standard to find moral values. And rightfully so, if he followed something like the 10 commandments, he would be out murdering everyone who was working on the sabbath.

Isn’t it odd that if are born in the US you are probably a Christian. But if you are born in a different country, there is a very good chance you worship a completely different god? But both groups of believers are equally certain that their god is the “right” god. So geography is the most important factor in determining religious certainties. That should make a reasonable person question their “beliefs” don’t you think? Maybe you shouldn’t be so certain of yours.

The author is very clear she does not want to hear Jew bashing.

Israelites have been without a proper central religious authority for 1700 years, and have not had the power to punish evil doers for even longer.

Will others harp on this, YES, but a fact is a fact. It’s up to us to Yahudim ( Jews and other tribes) to Keep the Torah…at this point it’s a minority who are religious, but that will change. Look at what is transpiring now in Israel…while more people turn to God, we have a long way to go.

It also does not help that Reform and “conservative” movements reject the Torah and embrace abominations. These congregations of rabble Apostates are not accepted in to the “Orthodox” camp without a deep look into if they are actually Jewish by Torah Law. Most of the reform and “conservative” actually need to convert before being counted for a prayer “Minyan” or Marriage. This is due to the large numbers converted by them against Torah law ( Halacha) and their use of Patrilineage, accepting only the father being Jewish as “OK”.

The Men of the City also wanted to “know” the guests…that is they wanted to rape them…they refused the offer by the not so great Lot of his Virgin daughter to play with….they wanted the Men….

So yes worse than Heterosexual Porn…but Pornography is not wholesome by a long shot.

I don’t see that, and I am an Orthodox Levite. Please see my comment under M Dowling . There is a lot of REAL anti Jewish material out there, this does not even get close to that…

Just remember Ezra ( known the Scribe, the Kohain, and the Chassid) had to collectively slap the Israelites in the face by using his power granted by the Persian King…this is nothing new. If only we had the leadership that could bring the Children of Israel back to the proper path…

The Concert for Peace” close to Gaza should never have been allowed for security purposes…let alone from a religious standpoint it was on Shabbat ( Sabbath) AND a holy Festival ( Shemini Atzeret) So a lot of Violating Shabbat there.

I still feel bad for those people, just like I feel bad for the Bedouin in Rahat that were attacked as well ( and many tried to help those fleeing the Concert)….over 22 communities inside 1948 Israel over run, 2 cities infiltrated, at least 2 IDF bases taken over…young soldiers ( new recruits slaughtered in their bunks with grenades, etc.).

The Sate of Israel violated NUMEROUS principles of the Torah…Not letting most of it’s people have personal arms…and letting the concert happen on the Sabbath and Holiday Violations…and with all the warnings they got before from Egypt, from their own IDF Spotters, etc., etc..

Stupidity on both the Tactical and Spiritual level will be punished.

Quick reaction “Tequila teams” were dispatched 4 hours before the attack, but no one else was warned…not the New army recruits on the border asleep in bed, and not the party goers. Those Tequila teams were mopped up by Hamas..and masses of Gazans that followed them.

#1 Sin: Not caring enough about their own people ( Not loving your fellow as yourself!). Pulling Jews out of there homes Gaza in 2005, denying communities along the border weapons, not warning soldiers and party goers….even if it was just 4 hours warning…that is plenty of time to be on alert and would have saved some lives.(!)

#2 Sin: Violation of the Shabbat/ Sabbath and Festive combined day.

Yes this is where “Gods plan” comes in…but we all get a piece of the punishment…”All of Israel are Partners in everything” is one of our principles. That means when someone does something wrong, and gets no rebuke from the masses, we all get punished.
