Keep the internet Christian!

*The site that inspired this post is very likely a parody.  But just in case it isn't.....

Again touching on the topic of religious people attempting to silence dissent, I found this website, on which the author, Jim Carlson, makes an attempt to claim the internet as a tool to spread Christianity and to suppress opposition. Here is a quote:

The Internet was created by the United States of America - a Christian nation - and should not be used to spread anti-Christian, secular, or non-Christian propaganda and hatespeech. This is our Internet, and we should exercise our position as its owners and as the guardians of civilization to stop its misuse. (emphasis in original)

So Jim Carlson, does that same rule apply for all types of communication and for all religions?

The Blackberry, which I understand is quite popular these days, was invented by a Canadian company called Research In Motion. So I'm sure Canadians would appreciate it if you would stop using Blackberrys to spread anti-Canadian, American, or any non-Canadian propaganda or hate speech. You may use it to heap praise on the Canadian government and their decision to avoid the disaster in Iraq, or just to send hockey scores to your friends. It would be wrong to make any implication that the American hockey team is better than the Canadian one using a Blackberry.

Moving on, I did some quick research on Wikipedia for the origins of the mail system. It appears to have been invented thousands of years ago, that's before the United States was even born, in the Middle East, perhaps Persia. I don't want to research the origins of mail very hard, so I'll just take this as truth. Now, the Middle East certainly wasn't Islamic back then, as the great Muhammad had not been born yet. They were probably busy worshiping cows or the sun or some other un-Christian figure. But because they are now Islamic, I'm sure they would appreciate if you did not use mail to spread anti-Islamic, Christian, or any non-Islamic propaganda or hate speech. You may use it to heap praise on Muhammad or Allah, or just to send photos of ladies' bare ankles to your friends.

You may not believe it, but speech was probably invented hundreds of thousands of years ago by our ancestors in Africa. I'm sure that those ancestors would appreciate it if you did not use speech to insult or deny their memory by spreading anti-evolution, creationist, or any other non-evolution propaganda or hate speech. You may use it to thank them for having the smarts and foresight to evolve and lay the foundations for human civilisation.

The net being Christian, probably explains why there so much child porn.
