Catholic Internet Filter?
Access to the internet is essential for most families in the modern world, but with the devil & his demons lurking behind every corner of the internet, wouldn’t it be great if there was a Catholic internet filter?
While we don’t claim to be an internet filter strictly for Catholic families, you probably won’t find another filtering service so closely aligned with Church teaching. In a world where wolves in sheep’s clothing often infiltrate the Church, we strive to be faithful to traditional Christian teaching on morality.
That’s why FreeFiltering blocks websites devoted to promoting pornography, LGBTQ+ lifestyles, and abortion. Many of these stances are unpopular in today’s sinful world – that’s why so many of our competitors are afraid to mention them publicly.
The very fact that we’re telling you up-front on this page that we block this type of content could very well mean that someday soon, the major search engines decide to block all of our pages from their search results. If that happens, people won’t even be able to find us – even if they’re looking for us!
We are constantly faced with a choice: do we compromise and hide the truth to try to fit in with the world? Even though our service is free for home wi-fi, we do offer some paid services. We need to make a living, after all. If we get blacklisted by the major search engines for speaking the truth, it could mean fewer people being able to find us, and fewer people being willing to pay for our premium services. But we’ve made the choice not to be silent in speaking the truth, regardless of the cost. Eventually, it may come to the point that the only way you’ll be able to find us is through word of mouth. In fact, we’d appreciate it if you’d take a moment to tell your friends and family that you’ve found an internet filtering service that aligns with traditional Catholic values.
We are reminded of the prophet Isaiah, when he told the inhabitants of Jerusalem:
Too many people today are timid. They would rather call evil things good and live a comfortable life, than risk the consequences of “speaking the truth, in love”. The truth is, that we are created in the image of God the Word (the Logos). Because we have a Creator, it is our responsibility to live according to His design for our lives. God is full of mercy toward us. He does not want to leave us in our sin, falling short of what He created us to be. He calls us to repentance. He calls us to be bold and courageous; to let those around us know that what they are hearing from the world is untruthful. He calls us to protect the “little ones”. Woe to us if we become a stumbling block for the children in our lives! Will you join us on our mission to make the internet “safer for souls”, while speaking the truth in love?
