Google’s Done With Porn

Google’s Done With Porn

When I think about what my daughter will be exposed to in high school, it honestly freaks me out. Our culture is so sex-saturated that it seems we’ll never get out of the muck. Then this happens:

Google has released a new policy against pornography in it’s advertizing, searches, and sites.

PornHarms.com listed Google on both our 2013 and 2014 Dirty Dozen List because of their involvement in and profit from pornography in Google Play, Google Ads, YouTube and more.

In response, Google sent an email out alerting their advertisers – particularly pornography and other adult themed websites – that they will be implementing their new advertising policy which eliminates pornographic and sexually explicit ads. In addition, it seems Google will also no longer link to sites that contain such materials, no matter how benign their advertising.

What an amazing victory! This is a cultural feat and most certainly a spiritual one. Unfortunately, many of us have seen what the dangerous web of pornography can do to the Church. It’s accessibility has only magnified our addiction. Of course Christ’s strength is made perfect in our weakness, so it’s never impossible to overcome the trappings of porn… But THIS is a great step forward in eliminating this undercover narcotic.

Praise God. Let’s continue to pray that more stances like Google’s will continue to push forward.

Now go download Google Chrome web browser. And while you’re at it (for extra security), install Covenant Eyes. Not only will it send weekly reports, but it also functions as a web filter. It’s worth the investment.
