One of the other reasons I started a thread "Is it time to ditch the bible?".

I get the impression Christians don't like to be "questioned". Wonder why?

Anyone else think this is ridiculous.


I do. They do not want to hear from you, what you have to say may disturb their faith, and they may learn something, and Christians are forbidden to learn anything not Biblical. In this same vein, I got a similar surprise yesterday. I have been using this search engine for years now: clusty.com... Recently Clusty sold out to Yippy, and now they have little filters on the search engine, so it will not load anything porn, non Christian, and other things....

I contacted the owners, and got this in return...


Dear Xxxx
We are defaulting to filtering pornography only from our searches, and do not allow that filter to be turned off. However, we are erring on the side of caution until the filtering is perfected. Anything that could be considered anti Christan will also be filtered automatically. If you let me know which other search terms you used which were blocked, I can unblock them.

Thanks for your feedback - each email helps us build a better product.
Thanks,

This is censorship in a very bold form, is it not? What if I want to surf for porn, that is my right as an American, right? Did I wake up in china this morning? Anyway, I found a secure search engine, for all you google junkies....us2.ixquick.com...

another and another and after 35 posts i find they will not accept my opinion,

Can you give us just a little more information?

Like, did your post contain profanity? Did your post bash Christians? Or, was your post respectful and insightful?

Maybe you will cut/paste your original post on that site here?

Now, as for 'them' 'not allowing' you to post, that's a bit misleading.

Did you have to agree in the terms of use in that forum you are a Christian? Did you have to agree to become if you used their site?

No? Then that means you're allowed to post, but, they didn't like what you had to say and the title to this thread is misleading.

Sorry, but, it sounds to me like you joined just to bash their opinion of Harry Potter. Just sayin...


peace

EDIT: html - And to say: Your title should reflect the site in question is a Christian BLOG! That makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE...

I honestly don't remember my original pst very well biut i do know it was very clean and had no bad words nor in any way made a pot shot at Christianity,

Basically i debated the fact that they seem to have the wrong definition for the occult, like i said earlier they think its about killing babies and worshiping Satan. I also told them i think its sad that they are allowing the site to brainwash them into thinking bakugan is of the devil and how it has demonic symbols.

The answer is in the title of your thread. "Christian site" of course they will not allow other opinion. and its their right. Does christian radio allow Deicide to play on their channel? kind of common sense really

Try questioning Democrats in the Democratic Underground forum and you will be tossed faster than a salad at Barney Franks house.

"Redstateonline" will boot you even faster if you so much as suggest a fact or truth. This thread is about a Christian blog and you found a way to both insult Democrats and make a homophobic slur. Good job!

I certainly hope that you are joking.

The GOVERNMENT should not be censoring you. If a private enterprise doesn't want to allow their constituencies access to something, use a different private enterprise.

They are not obligated to run their business the way that you want it run.

ATS wouldn't allow me to post pornographic photos here. Is that censorship? Yeah. Are they within their rights? Absolutely. If I don't like it, I can go somewhere else.

You are absolutely right. Strange that people start a thread or blog to debate an issue but get all bent if someone disagrees.

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that websites on the Internet are "public forums," which is an erroneous assumption. Websites are private platforms. Meaning, they're not obligated to accept opposing opinions for "debate"... The Christian websites can exclude anyone they want, just as atheist and racist websites can exclude anyone they wish.

If you want a "free speech" forum, create your own website.
