Christian tech startup offers internet filter to block ‘dangerous LGBT + cult’ related websites to make the web a ‘safer place for souls’.
FreeFiltering was recently started by “a daddy who hates the devil” named Michael Lee Mason.
With Satan seemingly very up to date on modern technology, the tech startup’s goal “is to ensure that every Christian family has the capacity to protect their home internet from the” tricks of the devil. “
The Christian service promises to “block 99.9% of bad stuff,” which, along with LGBT + content, includes pornography and sites that mention abortion.
In one Press release Announcing FreeFiltering at the start of Pride, Mason said, “Christian parents are rightly concerned about how their children are routinely exposed to misconceptions about human sexuality in school.
“Then these ideas are all too easily reinforced by unhindered internet access at home. A few clicks can escalate into catastrophic physical and spiritual damage.
“As parents, we are responsible for training our children ‘the way they should be’. “
Mason said the job of “training” children becomes “more and more difficult with each passing day,” but his business can help parents “to fulfill their divine responsibilities.”
The Christian father from Georgia continued, “As the world celebrates pride throughout the month of June, we mourn that our nation has adopted the sin of pride as a virtue.
“We applaud those parents who make the enormous effort necessary to properly shape the conscience of their children in a culture that has become so hostile to holiness.”
Although advertised as free, Mason encourages users to “please consider upgrading to a Premium or Paid Patron membership”.
FreeFiltering also has another source of income. The “FreeFiltering Independent Evangelism Program” appears to be a multilevel marketing (MLM) program.
Users, known as “evangelists,” “earn commissions for referring paying customers to FreeFiltering LLC.”
The more money Evangelists earn for FreeFiltering, the higher their rank in the controversial marketing strategy.
The “FreeFiltering Independent Evangelist Program” was not mentioned in Mason’s initial press release.
