Trashed Idea – GodBlock

Thanks to Niel for finding this gem of an application. Tired of religious smut taking over your screen? Have 20 porn blockers on your web browser but none to keep out the evils of overzealous Bible thumpers? Fear only a little longer as there is a web-blocker in development to keep it out.

GodBlock is a web filter that blocks religious content. It is targeted at parents and schools who wish to protect their kids from the often violent, sexual, and psychologically harmful material in many holy texts, and from being indoctrinated into any religion before they are of the age to make such decisions. When installed properly, GodBlock will test each page that your child visits before it is loaded, looking for passages from holy texts, names of religious figures, and other signs of religious propaganda. If none are found, then your child is allowed to browse freely.

While I recognize religion can be fuel for propaganda fires, this seems like a wasted effort. Thus, your Trashed Idea. You can read more here.
