The parent filter of the Internet service provider Claranet seems to be built upon the advice of religious groups. Local media confirm that the broadband provider wanted to develop a filter which would keep kids safe, so instead of simply using common sense to determine what should be in a filter, the ISP turned to religious groups to decide.
Besides, it also allows schools and kids safety experts to help. The only problem is that it is for some reason consulting people who fight for a worldviews claiming “the world was created 6,000 years ago” and “women should be dressed like Satan’s pillar box”.
Worse still, the ISP is going to use volunteer guardians in order to decide the filters, which means that it won’t even be recognizing people from churches or religious groups – only those who want to have a go at filtering.
Meanwhile, in religious groups, the kind of people who volunteer for such things are usually a special breed that largely believe that their own religious leaders have got it wrong. In other words, they think that Jesus tells them to filter all references to ankles, and that other religions are run by demons.
The ISP announced that it was recruiting volunteer guardians from various outfits, although it won’t identify them. Claranet issued a statement saying that it had an “Islamic advisor”, and kids safety campaigner Sara Payne was among them. The ISP’s guardians will be asked whether they believe 140 categories of online content are appropriate for the modern children. The volunteers will be able to add or remove certain online services from the blacklists created by a 3rd-party company whose name is currently kept in secret.
In other words, any guardian may decide that Bebo has been blessed by God, or Jeff, or Xenu in the category of social networking, but at the same time decide to block Facebook as its users are the spawn of Satan and will burn in hell, Hades or Slough for all eternity.
Hopefully, the subscribers will be allowed to choose to set up and customize their own filters, or accept a pre-selected list from one of the volunteers and edit it themselves if they want.
Apparently, most people who opt for a religious filter are those who want to be told about sex or relationships by someone who has sworn not to have done either.

|When oh when is this plague known as religious fundamentalism going to die the world round?|
|Religions should not be in control of content filters nor ISP`s it should be the province of Parents to say what ,where , when and by whom in regards their children's development and to do otherwise irrespective of doctrine whether,catholic,Islamic or Other is just wrong.|
|i wish all porn video get deleted from internet every single of them|
|Religion should be stopped.|
Its just stupid to believe what someone has written in a book.
Why are people so scared to accept the truth ?

|You forget that according to Mo(hammed) being a pedo is OK. So having an islamic priest filter objectionable material is akin to asking Dahmer to look after the kids for a bit.|
|Ddraig64 get your facts right i know Orientalist like your self fantasize about having sex with young girls and so believe the lies that Mohammed pbuh was married to a 7 year old when basic maths would show you she was 17 get your facts straight first as you just come off as a paedophile projecting his vile tendency on others|
|and i believe you will find according to the christian church and jewish church having sex with girls under 3 is legal and so to cover up their own dogma they try and lie about islamic dogma|

|as my father once told me "religion is a man made doctrine to pacify his fears and control the masses. " with this being said i choose to live my life by the moral code i learned just from interacting with fellow human beings . If you doubt this ,read the poem, Everything I ever needed to learn ,I learned in kindergarten.|

|@madderdanIts: "Its just stupid to believe what someone has written in a book" so if because the bible says not to kill your fellow man you are not to believe it? LoL|
@edddy: "don't forget to filter pedophile priest" ya exactly y religion needs to be left out of this. as they have done no better.
@klkeklller: 17 year olds are considered miners. and "christian church and jewish church having sex with girls under 3" is NOT legal, btw there is no such thing as a Islamic christian or Jew. "now having sex with you own kin @ a legal age (18+) is legal" its just morally incorrect.
but ya because religion is so corrupted just as everything else this is not a good idea.
|@ Ddraig64.....You are an ass hole who knows nothing or is a freak who in spite of knowing doesn't want to believe in the truth( the Islam)....be honest in ur thoughts and think again about Islam and its teachings.....|

|Although don't believe in any God I'd rather people be brought up on the 'New Testament' than some of the stuff I've read on here and in partic one person who said (paraphrased) 'we as parents have no right to censor what out kids watch'. Oh Great! Snuff films all round.|
The problem with Religions is that people use them as an excuse for something else eg read the New Testament and its about love & forgiveness and yet it was used as a Reason for the Crusades to kill people!
|WTF!! what next|

|Its OK for them to do it. Not OK for the rest or us eh manofkent?|
and i believe you will find according to the christian church and jewish church having sex with girls under 3 is legal
Unless you meant to say "illegal" where did you get such bullshit information from? That isn't true for any legitimate Christian church.
