GodBlock: Keep That Pesky Religious Stuff Off Your Computer!

For everyone that’s intimidated and upset by random religious messages and sites on your computer, finally there’s “GodBlock” – an app to filter all religious content so you don’t have to see it.  As the website says:  “GodBlock will test each page that your child visits before it is loaded, looking for passages from holy texts, names of religious figures, and other signs of religious propaganda.”

In an age where sexuality, violence, and obsenity have reached all time highs, it’s great that these wonderful people have focused all their time on keeping God off our computers.  Where some people get their priorities, I’ll never know….

  1. the logo is not only fantastic, but will preach

    there are many people who do their very best to keep their hands firmly around God’s wrist. if we’d just get out His way and let Him move in our lives, directing our paths, we’d be better off

    (am I overthinking that?)

  2. The humor in this pertains to the fact the creators of the app most likely don’t believe in god, so why create an app to hinder something that does not exist? In the end, I can see a few nerds gloating over the idea their computers are now God free.

  3. my heart actually breaks…. its just as you said where do some people get their priorities from…. however some of the fault lies at our door, we are not living as we should, hence making the most beautiful story ever told of minimal impact. as i read this the letter Paul wrote to the church of Rome, because they refuse to acknowledge God, He gave hem over to their “reprobate” mind. my paraphrase, but every time i read that letter, i wonder if are not reliving the past….

  4. Odd man out as I often am, not to mention some 5 months behind, I would like to offer a view from the other side of the fence. I consider indoctrinating any belief, secular or spiritual, in a child, to be akin to abuse. Lead them toward values, surely, toward inquiry, toward tools that will make them grow and learn. But to wish to shield them from sexuality before religion seems perverse to me. We would not have religion if we did not reproduce. Casting Victorian principles aside, not a single person reading this blog would exist were it not for sexuality. Sexuality is a part of nature. Pornography on the other hand is some peoples way of exploiting sexuality for financial gains. Take care not to confuse the two.

    Provide the child with the values and ideals that you find virtuous, and let them find their way to the religion that they discover best fits those things instilled in them rather than leading them to water and forcing them to drink. If you have done your job well. If you have not only expressed your values, but have actively displayed those values in your actions and conduct, the odds are good that upon maturity the child will find his or her way to the religion or philosophy which best reflects the values that they grew up seeing put into practice daily. They do come around to seeing the wisdom of parents, eventually. To quote Samuel Clemens “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.”
