Apparently, God is a little too involved with the internet for some people. In fact, God and His followers have become so ubiquitous on the internet that sane and reasonable people fear for the safety of their children. If only there were a way to shield their little eyes from the “often violent, sexual, and psychologically harmful material in many holy texts.” Well, now there is.
You can install GodBlock on your pc or mac today and rest assured that your children are not “being indoctrinated by any religion” while they’re surfing the net. If you sign up today you’ll also receive 10 free stickers (pictured below) for your children to proudly display. Sadly, this does not appear to be a hoax.
This is an actual website complete with a nice flash intro and pretty good web design. The whois registration information is marked private so who is actually behind the website is unknown.
Why You Need to Install GodBlock
Here’s why the website says you need to install this blocker …
In the last century, the United States has seen a resurgence of fundamentalist religion. Fundamentalist Evangelicals, Mormons, Baptists, and Jews have held back progress in science, human rights, civil rights, and protecting our environment. How can we reverse this trend and join the rest of the world in the gradual secularization of society and government?
Most deeply religious people are born into their religion, but even children raised in a secular household are vulnerable to content on the web. That’s why we’ve produced GodBlock.
Did They Put the Cart Before the Horse?
There is some bad news for all those ready to enjoy their God-free internet browsing. If you click on the link to install the blocker you get the following message …
We’re sorry! GodBlock isn’t ready yet. But please join the mailing and we’ll let you know as soon as it is. Include your mailing address and we will send you 10 free GodBlock stickers!
They sure are proud of those stickers! I decided not to sign up for the mailing list so I can’t tell you what happens if you decide to do so. No stickers for me I guess.
Want More Examples of God Gone Wild on the Web?
Okay, well maybe more like people who claim His name but use it in some really weird ways. I found out about the GodBlock website at Jesus Needs New PR where you can find daily examples of ways not to help God out.
P.S. I decided not to include any links to the website in this article. The website is clearly visible above in the picture if you decide you wish to visit it.
