Censored internet
STOP! You've attempted to learn about homosexuality.

A Christian tech startup is releasing an internet filter that’s going to straighten out the internet – literally. 

Here comes FreeFiltering, created by internet evangelical entrepreneur Michael Lee Mason. His Christian tech startup is hoping to make the internet “Safer Place for Souls™” by blocking any and all LGBT-related content from the internet.

Installed with just a few simple adjustments to your home’s wifi router, FreeFiltering blocks some two million+ websites to prevent “indoctrination” into the “dangerous LGBT cult.”

Will it work?

Saving Souls One Click at a Time

Warning that “a couple clicks can spiral into catastrophic physical and spiritual harm,” FreeFiltering is a brand new internet filter promising to save your child’s mortal soul.

Concerned that other parental control and internet filtering companies weren’t doing nearly enough to block off content he deemed harmful, Mason set out to create a truly evangelical internet filter. Other filters ban violent images or pornography, but this one goes even further “to make sure every Christian family has the ability to protect their home internet from the ‘wiles of the devil.'"

"While the world celebrates Pride for the entire month of June, we mourn the fact that our nation has embraced the sin of pride as a virtue,” Mason says. He continues:

“We applaud the parents who are putting in the enormous effort necessary to properly form their kids' consciences in a culture that has become so hostile to holiness. Christian parents are rightfully concerned about the way their kids are being systematically exposed to false ideas about human sexuality at school. Then, those ideas are all-too-easily reinforced with unfettered internet access at home.”

It doesn’t stop just at blocking off a few corners of the internet, though. They’ll also block access to two million+ websites that promote “evil causes” – not only LGBTQ sites, but pornographic websites and anything discussing abortion as well. Eventually, the company plans to block out any websites that “promote values contrary to the historic Christian tradition.”

Pride and Prejudice

We've seen this play out time and time again: faith groups butting heads with the LGBTQ community. From the ever-controversial Drag Queen Story Hour, to faith-based adoption agencies deciding whether or not to allow gay couples to adopt

Heck, even the fast food industry can't see to stay out of this fight. 

And each June during Pride month, these clashes seem to grab even more headlines – just look at the intense reactions to Disney’s Pride-themed ‘Rainbow Merch’ line this year. 

A Christian internet filter seems a logical next step for those seeking to prevent their children from being exposed to anything LGBT-related.

But some think this battle is just getting started. They ask: If a country like China has the technology to control what its 1.4 billion citizens see on the internet, what's stopping powerful faith groups from leveraging similar technology to shelter kids from online content deemed "unbiblical"?

What is your reaction? Will the future of the internet be fragmented into "safe spaces"?

    Just another reason why folks have no interest in Christian churches any more. The more you tighten your grip, the less people you will find left to control. Princess Leia warned Tarkin of the same concept. And that was a long, long time ago. Just wanting to make folks laugh today. :)

    Oh boy, here we go again on the gay bashing bandwagon by a bunch of crazy religious bigots. It is wonderful to know that more and more people are waking up to the cult of Christianity and other religious organizations and refuse to join their cults. How boring, ridiculous, childish for anyone to believe there is some white guy in the sky. Grow up and get over yourselves fake christians. There is no white guy in the sky looking out for you over anyone else. Homophobia, racism, misogyny are the "sins" they refuse to acknowledge in themselves.

      But this may reduce problems in that it will give them something to do, and they'll be busy getting slowly, subtly, compromised and corrupted and never even know it, they'll be watching and looking and constantly testing and being wrapped up in it, eventually becoming addicted by the constant run of temptations, and if they don't constantly look and sniff, then they will just have to use substitutes so that even more will be preoccupied and out of commission with being distracted...like boiling a frog one degree at a time, since the Devil is so much smarter than humans...unless this is some kind of computer program AI automated routine doing all the sniffing. Time well spent in my opinion, and then they can try their had at convincing St. Peter how they spent all their God-granted miraculous live time hunting for grains of sand hounding others of God's creation instead of improving their own sinning ways.

        Your stats aren't accurate actually. Suicide is not the #1 cause of death for people under 18, nor is the suicide rate of post gender reassignment surgery patients anywhere near 60%. I have no idea where you came up with that number.

    Does religion enhance your life or dictate it? I believe this religious based software company wants to dictate it.

    This company is telling us they will stop what we don't want to see. If my cell phone company can't stop all of these marketing calls, how will a software know they are blocking out gay material? I can't even get away from it when watching the Smithsonian channel. Seems no one is willing to put up American flags during May Military appreciation month but they all have to put the rainbow flags all over during June everyone should be gay month.

    We all know there is a gay community and everyone has their life and personally I don't want it shoved down my throat. Seeing two men kiss just does nothing for me and actually makes me uncomfortable but it does not bother others so why should my beliefs stop what is actually happening in the world?

    If people want to sign up for this service, then let them. It is their choice. As for me, I won't be signing up for it because I am a man and can take reality.

    Now I can't wait for the homophobe, gay hater, blah, blah, blah, you are racist responses.

    1. Linda Salavarria's Avatar Linda Salavarria

      Naaah, not a gay hater blah blah blah. Just recognition that you are denying your erotic and sensual nature. Watching ANYONE kiss in a romantic sense (as in two consenting adults) is erotic by nature. If any particular combination of adults kissing makes you uncomfortable, then you are just denying yourself the full range of sensuality. No bashing here, just sort of...pity.

      Don't know about the agenda or engineering behind the name change from Gay Pride month, to just Pride month. My only suspicions are that the intent is to encourage everyone to 'celebrate'. Imagine how some people would react to Straight Pride month, or Atheist Pride month, or Nonagenarian Pride month. I'm certain those same people would find some prejudice in there somewhere, some type of phobia. I don't eat parsnips because I don't like the flavor, not because I have a phobia, or hate them. Bandwagons aren't for me either, I have just enough energy to manage my own behavior.

      Why would any one appreciate the military? You can not point to one action taken in more than a century by the U.S. armed forces that actually served the broad spectrum of interests of the majority of the people of the U.S.

      Veterans are to be pitied, and treated like the traumatized and life long threat to society they represent. The mental trauma that being indoctrinated into a miltiary order causes is so severe and lasting, that the price for serving should be a bullet in the brain when it comes time to discharge them from service.

      Unlike gay people who have had to fight just to exist, and live in fear and doubt that those who they call friend and neighbor may turn upon them and do harm to them and their loved ones because of who they choose to be intimate with in a consenting manner.

      What you are is ignorant, and less than nothing. You seem to think your gender makes you something. It does not. To be something worthy of respect or even basic human civility, you need to seek to ascend from the place of nothings you have always existed in.

      1. Ronaldo's Avatar Ronaldo

        Just because you hate those willing to lay down their lives to serve their nation and others does not mean people should not appreciate the military. Apparently you have completely forgotten about, or never learned about, the atrocities that would have been meted out on the free world had military forces not won World War I and World War II. I am a veteran, an ordained minister, scientist, and engineer. I don't feel shame for being any of these, and I do not require pity, nor have I ever been traumatized or a life-long threat to society, unless your society is self-centered, godless, and unfair to anyone that does not believe as you do. If so, then yes, I am a threat to your society, but not to mine, nor to America's.

          A thought for Ilmenheru Terikson...

          To paraphrase Voltaire, "I disagree with your opinion entirely, but I will defend, to the death, your right to express it!"

          Or, a modern version, "If you don't want to stand behind our troops, please, feel free to stand in front of them!"

          I spent ten years in the RCN, and I can assure you, there is no person on Earth who hates war more than those who have served. Until you have done as much, I suggest a little more compassion and understanding for those who have been there.

        Holy Moly Ilmenheru Terikson! I am truly shocked by your ignorance and lack of understanding of military obligations. FYI, I come from a long line of US Navy and USMC military family members who took an oath: "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." My father fought against FASCISM in WWII, My husband USMC during Vietnam, My grandson, USMC Iraq. As a civilian military therapist, I have treated thousands of active duty members and veterans over decades. FYI, Not everyone suffers from PTSD who was in combat. "Lifelong threat to society"? Where does that come from? "To be pitied"? Why? Whatever your political views or ideology about war (I hate war) our troops are to be respected for their sacrifices as well as their family members. The post 911 bill which replaced the original GI bill, provides education and training for veterans. Instead of pitying our troops, maybe your could make some difference in the lives of homeless vets who got out with nothing after protecting you and me.

    4. Teej Johnson's Avatar Teej Johnson

      Don't agree with the bullet in the brain stuff that Ilmenheru guy said, that's batshit crazy. But this is all just positioning. If you truly cared about military, people like you would try to fund the VA as much as possible. Instead, you people have done everything you can to reduce that funding because bootstraps. Whenever you people see someone supporting a cause you're not comfortable with, the first thing you do is virtue signal about veterans. These same people do everything they can to cut benefits to veterans and reduce VA funding when people are not looking.

      They do the exact same thing with refugees and homeless veterans. These same politicians start to rant about homeless veterans in our country. Yet behind the scenes, they refuse to give these veterans the social service and the mental help they cannot afford. In my opinion, both you and these politicians are truly terrible people for hiding behind veterans in order to shield yourself from something you're uncomfortable with.

        When it becomes illegal to be heterosexual and you have to fight for your right to love your heterosexual partner as a homosexual couple does, we can talk about a "heterosexual pride month." Since that has never been the case in our modern global society, there isn't a need for such a month but for those who have been persecuted, assaulted, and even killed because of their sexual preference, taking pride in who you are is an important step of gaining personal self worth and acceptance in our world.

      2. Teej Johnson's Avatar Teej Johnson

        If sin is what you're worried about, why don't you focus within yourself instead of judging others for who they are. I know this must be a foreign concept to you, but to be honest, I really don't think you care about sin. If you did, you wouldn't wear mixed-fabric clothing. No, you're just uncomfortable with gay people and just using your religion as a mask

    I wonder what the outcry would be from the evangelicals if a Christian filter were developed to filter out all religious content on the internet.

  1. Robert A Stiff's Avatar Robert A Stiff

    And yet christians are constantly trying to bend others to their religious beliefs by demanding religious images and concepts be placed in public schools (prayers), court houses (Ten Commandment plaques), on currency (In god We Trust), ringing strangers doorbells to claim their particular belief system, and on and on. Not to mention the sordid history of burnings and torture meted out to non-believers over the centuries. Perhaps a better example is today's cadre of rabid christian anti-abortionists who kill, threaten and advocate to deny others the right to exercise their own free will. christians ALWAYS attempt to bend others to be like them. ALWAYS!

        Lol he just gave a series of examples that Christians forcing their religion on others happens more often than should be the case. If a muslim demanded these things (required prayer every single day in public schools, muslim sayings on the courthouses, saying allah hu akbar on dollar bills) Christians would definitely not agree. If you want an example of this look no further than Fox News. Apparently blasting Christian prayer over the school's intercoms every morning is perfectly fine, and is the righteous thing to do, but all of a sudden when muslim children just want a private classroom to pray in, now it's an abomination. It's the same with atheists, hindus, buddhists, basically any other affiliation other than Christianity. These Christians have some of the worst fake persecution complexes I've ever seen.

    Well ya can cut it any way you want but it isn’t natural in that you can not procreate! Personally I can careless what someone does in the privacy of their bedroom but if a person insist on telling everyone that they are gay then does that not make it everyone’s else’s business?

      Procreate? The world would be a better place if less people didn't procreate especially when I read stories like this one. These misdirected and ignorant people shouldn't have any children. Faulty genes not needed. Not everyone should have children anyway, regardless.

      By the same standard of some form of sexuality's not being natural when it doesn't allow people engaged in it to procreate, infertile straight couples who also can't procreate would be "unnatural".

Break their rules and suffer the consequences. That includes codes of conduct and topics of discussion while on their platform.. But they open up lawsuits after lawsuits, especially if codes are unconstitutional. the companies could lose billions of dollars.

        1. Teej Johnson's Avatar Teej Johnson

          The companies win these lawsuits because the constitution says the government can't persecute you. A company is not the government, so the case is very easily winnable, if you break their TOS, you get kicked off. That being said, I disagree with this and think that speech on social media should be treated like protected speech. However, nothing in the constitution says that must be the case because they are private entities, not the government.

          1. Woodrow's Avatar Woodrow

            I never said anything about the government. Nice twist to your reply, but the cases are winnable. Billions have been paid already by big business and small business. Facebook is facing Billions of dollars, if not Trillions by now, in lawsuits. Don't use those web services any more.

            1. Teej Johnson's Avatar Teej Johnson

              Facing trillions of dollars in lawsuits is not the same as winning those lawsuits.

              The line from the first amendment is: "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech"

              It's not Congress making these laws, there are no governmental laws in place saying you don't have free speech. These are the rules of private entities, rules that users agree to when they sign on to the Terms of Service. So no, the plaintiffs can't win this case because there is no direct violation of the first amendment.

                Really? That's it? Why don't you refute my point? If there's something wrong with what I said, tell me, I'd be open to hear it. But from my understanding, social media apps are private companies and by using them, the user agrees to the TOS, where they are liable to receive punishment within the context of the app if they do not abide by these TOS. It's not within the context of other apps and other companies, it doesn't affect your right to say whatever you want without fear of persecution, you just can't say it on the specific social media app.

                I've quoted you the part in the first amendment that deals with free speech and expression, and it has nothing to do with private companies. If you want to prove I'm wrong, the onus is on you to give me proof, not me to read more on the subject and to look for proof that I'm wrong. Sorry, the world doesn't work like that.

But I'm also skeptical because, even if this is true (and this is me giving you the benefit of a serious doubt here because you really don't seem knowledgeable on this at all) there are a variety of reasons companies would settle out of court. One example would be trying to avoid press, as whether or not the case goes in their favour, their stock will still suffer. McDonald's did this with the woman who got 3rd degree burns.

    Many people in the military have come out with problems and it is sad. But, the people who are and have served in the military are the ones keeping the US free so gay people can be gay. Now you obviously see the military as a threat and I am sorry. You are able to say what you are saying because the military did the things they have done to keep the US free and the Constitution alive and well.

    Gay people have been ostracized because their lifestyle is not normal. If it was normal why would they have to "come out"? Why does it have to be announced they are gay? If someone is gay then they are gay, fine. Live your life but, thank the military for keeping America the land of the free.

    As for me being ignorant, your insult means I struck a chord and you did not like it. The truth hurts and you can't accept what I am saying. You are the one lacking knowledge and wisdom so, I suggest you open your eyes and see the world and not just what you want to see.

      You also seem to forget as a member of the service you are for life a slave to all free citizens of the U.S. your words mean less then nothing as your only puropse and place is to serve your betters which is anyone who has never sold themselves into the life of a slave soldier. Even pedos and rapists and serial killers on death row are more than you on the social scale.

      The hilarious thing about those who buy into military elitism is they can never grasp how even the most adorned general looks like a pathetic whipped field hand in chains to those of us who understand the truth are did not sell ourselves into bondage.

      Now be a good little bit of federally owned property( as all who sign the contracts to serve are legally for life as any can in emergency be forced back into service) and go back down stairs and eat the scraps of the society that is so generous as to allow you to serve us.

        Yes, Tejas, it takes forever to get through the VA system to get rated, as well as receive services. The DOD and Pentagon are poor planners and never anticipated the high number of vets who survived Iraq and Afghanistan with horrific wounds. In previous wars, they would have died. That combined with antiquated computer tech, (it's getting better) so many vets who finished their contracts were left with no support and no income. When I hear someone say, "thank you for your service" I want to slap the crap out of them because they are empty words. No veteran or anyone else should be homeless in the USA.

    With more than 1,500 species of mammalian populations on this little blue marble, how can they say homosexuality & LGBTQ is against nature when it is so prevalent?

    I do not understand these poor fearful bigots.

    This bigoted Christian religion will go away in the near future. That tells you how messed up, manipulated and re-written this Bible book really is... I estimate about 10% truth the rest is just to control and wrestle his message away for political and power purposes. He said just 2 rules. The shortest sermon ever! 1 - LOVE GOD. 2 - TREAT OTHERS WELL. Church is out. Go have a nice Sunday now living his truth.

    Yeah, about China's ability to block internet content...they also block religious prosthletizing, right?

    Can I get THAT? I'm soooo sick of seeing evangelical and hyper religious booshoo (you know the REAL word) all over ads and internet content. Can someone tweak a filter so we can rid the internet of this crap? Keep your religion to yourself. I just don't care.

    Good morning! My opinion is that Sodom and Gomorrah is still in its existence and haven't disappear after all its destruction weather on the internet or in person, after research about creation and life given to each individual they have their on way of living their life. So it be! We will all be judge by the Creator no and if or buts judgment is coming for all of us. May blessings be upon us all.

      Sodom & Gomorrah was an example of a city that was rampant with gang rape. It was a violent city to extremes. Homosexual relationships were not the issue here. It was violence.
      No one has the right to rape and violate another person ever. The verses that have been taken out of context here and other places refer to sodomy rape as being abhorrent. My opinion. There is not one reference to a woman being prohibited from being a lesbian. The closest reference would be to dress as a woman not a man. However many people believe these verses were to be interpreted in light of the culture at the time and now that we have changed as a culture wearing pants for a woman is widely acceptable where as not at that time. I think we have to live with an understanding of each other. Science can teach us a lot and we’re learning. There are chimeras who are twins that joined in the womb who became one person. It happens when one twin knows the other can’t make it so it absorbs that twin. It happens early and many mom’s never know. The chimera ends up having two sets of dna in various parts of their body. As it relates to the article, although the chimera may have female parts the dna in that area can be the male twin. There have been dna tests where a child’s biological parents are both male because mom was a chimera and the dna passed to the child was from moms absorbed twin brother. I mention this to say that we have to be understanding. It’s not so simple to say a person is male or female. Science teaches us that fact.
      We have to let people be who they are and not be so mean and teach our kids the same. All children need monitoring with the internet and with their phones to keep them safe.

      Thank you for you opinion Eugene. My opinion, based on logic, reason, and lack of archaeological evidence of pretty much anything in the Bible, especially supporting the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, adults who want to fall in love with one another is totally ok. Thank you for your opinion though.

      So Eugene, are you saying that it's impossible to love someone that you cannot have children with??? Well aren't you precious! Does that include your mom?

        David - If that is the case, then senior citizens can no longer get married, let alone become romantic! Men with low sperm counts are out of luck as well! Oh, no! What is the world to do!

      Re: the historical bible. I would suggest a good read: "The Gods of Eden" William Bramley. You will never look at the story of Sodom & Gomorrah the same way again and will gain a clearer understanding. Do some digging into the original Sumerian texts of the history. Constantine and his scribes did one heck of a job writing their bible stories based on ancient texts and passing them off as "words of god." You have been brainwashed to remain 3rd graders in biblical scholarship. Have fun reading the book. Then move on to Zechariah Sitchin's research.

    There are MANY parental Filter DNS & Firewalls. The internet and TV is full of, well, everything & anything. Much of it Not Good for adults & not good for kids. Every family needs to install filters to match their beliefs. Also teach the moment, WHY are some websites harmful ? Why is Hate & Sin harmful, vs the goals of Love & Kindness ?

    Does God follow restrictions or his promises, we are to live like Jesus "here" honoring God with every word we speak, every step we take and every action of ourselves. You and I are just as much a child of God because we are believers not by works was it obtained but by what Christ had done for us on the cross, others are to see it in us and want the same, NOT US POINTING FINGERS AT THEM. It has and always will be a long road for anything and anyone for that matter and not for us to critique anyone but to guide them first or second hand. We have to remember if God has us "All" in his hands who are we to say anything otherwise, it is his will be done never ours. Pray about everything and in all things gove thanks to the Father in Heaven who knows the ending and the beginning, leave it at that, but most of all bring it before him in Jesus name, Amen.

    Forcing homosexual content upon those who DO NOT approve of it is an unconscionable violation of human rights. It is also a violation of God given free will to FORCE anyone to bow to the will of another. It is the RIGHT of all to believe as WE choose! Any and everyone who attempts to FORCE their will upon another should be struck down as an enemy of God.

  1. Marina Leigh Catalano's Avatar Marina Leigh Catalano

    To force one to bend to the will of another is a violation of God's law, as well as a violation of each person's human rights. If I do not approve of homosexuality it is my right under both God and man to feel that way and noone should be allowed to force it upon me or into my life.

    I believe there are many more people today that want to understand God on their own and not join a religion that attaches so many prejudices and rules. I admit that I must be careful when I advocate this principle because there are some who would be lost if they did not have their religion to guide them. If I find someone of a like mind, I then try to encourage they keep seeking their own understanding of God.

    God’s law or the law condemns homosexuality according to 1 Timothy 1:8-15 that explains God’s law in the Holy Bible that is not made for the righteous ones. The law is made for law breakers and rebels,the ungodly and sinful,the unholy and irreligious,for those who kill their fathers or mothers,for murderers,for the sexually immoral,for those practicing homosexuallity. The internet is worldly and satanic.I,Archbishop Yanel Jay Laroche Jr., saw so much bad stuff online.Not just people practicing homosexuality. Christians should guard their hearts whenever they are going online.

      Unless you are referring to the first 3 books of the New Testament, you are not dealing with the words of Yeshua ben Yousef, you are (in all probability) quoting Saul of Tarsis, who wrote most of the books contained in the NT (all but 5). Yeshua's responses were mostly along the lines of "Love everyone."

    2. Ilmenheru Terikson's Avatar Ilmenheru Terikson

      You see very confused Jr. the earliest versions of the NT do not cite any issue with homosexuality, and in fact not even is mentioned in the OT until in translations no earlier than the 13th century. Considering homosexuality was very common among all the cultures that the Abrahamic faith traditions rose out of, your entire claim lacks any substanital evidence to support it.

      Oh also, I am not sure what you think you are an Arch Bishop of, but such things have no meaning when you deal with your betters. You walk in a place now with gods, devils, and titans themselves wandering aborad. Mere mortal slaves to less gods have no substance to offer.
