UK ISP Asks Religious Groups To Set Parental Controls 205

Barence writes "A British ISP is inviting religious groups to help set parental controls for its customers. Claranet says it is recruiting volunteer 'Guardians' from a number of different organizations — including religious organizations, schools and child safety experts. A press spokesman for the ISP said that an 'Islamic advisor' was among the first batch of Guardians, but refused to identify them. The Claranet Guardians will be asked to choose whether they think 140 different categories of internet content are appropriate. Within those categories, the Guardians can choose to add or remove individual websites from the blacklists, which are created by a third-party company that Claranet also refused to name."

    Religion is like bath salts. Sure, it's a fun fantasy world at first but next thing you know you're stripping naked eating some guy's flesh and drinking his blood.

    unless they're a priest f*king children

    Priests faking children?

    No, of course not! It's "priests forking children". Spawning child processes via fork() is the only way they can reproduce.

    It's a tenuous existence, though, because the children are clones of the parent, share all the same memories as their parent up until the time they were forked, and *die* if their parent dies.

    As to your last comment, you do realize that abstinence and self control is proven to be the best birth control one could use right?

    It is the worst type of birth control. The last time someone used it, she gave birth not only to a child but to 2000+ years worth of drivel and gibberish.

Logic is the chastity belt of the mind!
