An advisor to United Kingdom's Prime Minister David Cameron urged the Church of England to withdraw their investment in Google as part of the leader's anti-child pornography campaign.

Conservative Claire Perry told the Church of England today that they should pull out their money from the giant search engine firm to pressure the company. Prime Minister David Cameron recently urged internet firms such as Google to support his drive to stop child pornography on the world wide web. Perry serves as Cameron's adviser on sexualization and commercialization of childhood prevention.

Companies such as Microsoft expressed their willingness to do actions in support of Cameron's drive. Google has yet to confirm any statement regarding their stance on the issue of content blocking on the internet.

"They (referring to the Church of England and other English private investors) have a role to play, they have questions to ask themselves. They are moral leaders," Perry said. "If they are going to opine on things then putting your money where your mouth is is an incredibly powerful tool," she continued.
