Planned censorship of esoteric websites and web forums!

Postby FrostyRose » Sat Sep 28, 2013 3:06 am

Hi everyone

I'm sorry, I didn't know where else to put this.

I wanted to share with the community here an important issue that's going to affect anybody interested in free access to spirituality or web forums online: The UK Internet censorship bill. Its been launched as a censor against child pornography websites to protect our children, however what is not known about it is that esoteric websites and internet forums are also included in the bill - without being publicly announced... Spiritual, occult and esoteric websites are conveniently being categorized to the same degree as pornography, terrorism, violence, suicide etc…!

This means that all paranormal, supernatural, occult, new age, spiritual, alternative religion websites etc... will soon be banned from public viewing in the UK (and it may very well be an example for other countries to follow, as Canada and Australia have already announced similar plans) if we don't do anything about it. If this matters to you please help spread the word so we can all group together and stand up to this bill. 

Please sign the petition and read more info at http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/u ... web-forums

The info-graphic below summarizes in a simple way what's going on. Feel free to add it to your website if you wish to raise awareness about this issue. It is a courtesy of reachinglight website and you can get a free copy here: http://www.reachinglight.com/infographi ... lications/

Thank you and blessings!

I've signed it and posted it to many friends.
There always has to be something going backwards doesn't there? We progress so much with certain things like women's rights, gay rights etc... but as one thing moves forward it seems like we just have to pull something else back to keep some kind of twisted balance!

With as progressive as the UK and other European nations can be, this is a huge step backwards. :evilwitch:
