  •  It's already been done... (9+ / 0-)

    ...except that it's called Christian-Net instead of Jesusnet.

    There are also already alternative Christian video sites, social networks, news sites, etc.

    They've been at the "parallel Jeebus versions of eeeeevil secular culture" game for decades now.

      •  The difference is that in those countries... (0+ / 0-)

        ...you don't have a choice. It's censored internet or nothing.

        That's why it's so important that the FCC implement net neutrality in the US. In most parts of the country there's only one real broadband option, and if Comcast and Cox decide they're going to censor the internet or give preferential access to one streaming service over another, the choice is between them or dialup.

        But if the rest of us have other options for connecting that aren't going to censor what we can access, I don't mind that services like Christian-Net exist. If people really want internet access that is filtered at the ISP level and are willing to pay for it, it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg that they're doing it, so long as there are unfiltered options.
