Well last week we encountered something pretty amazing... the USA government was able to pass through a law that allows them to get a judge to issue a warrant that allows them to shut down a website.
While this may be good and all - I am not saying those websites should not be taken off-line, they were violating the law after all, but it scares me to think of where this could lead.
Could this law eventually lead to a website such as ChristianBlog.Com being taken away from its owner because it is used to post 'Christian' content that might be viewed as 'unacceptable' to some segregate of the nation?
I am not some dooms-day-sayer by any means, but this is one law and set of actions that have involved websites operated in the USA that really does make me wondering what might the future hold for religious websites.
How long until we are at a point were websites are forced offline because they are not "open to all types of religions". If it can happen to the Ten Commandments being displayed, how much weaker of a case in the court of laws does a single website have?
That is a very sobering thought which serves to remind me of the importance of praying for this website as well as some others.
Well, I heard through some sources here that someone predicts such events will happen and some websites would be closed around 2012. Seems like it is going to happen and it will generally affects websites that tells the truth of the Gospel.
Sad to hear such news but may be part of the devil's plan to stop Christians from using the internet for evangelism.
Thanks for sharing, Brother John
