US military blocking Southern Baptist web site?
Catholic World News - April 25, 2013
Access to the web site of the Southern Baptist Convention has been blocked on US military bases, because of an official judgment that the site carries "hostile content," Fox News has reported.
It was not clear how many military bases had blocked the Southern Baptist site. A member of the military reported that he had been unable to reach the site, and had been warned that his attempt to access material from the Southern Baptist Convention had been recorded.
The Southern Baptist Convention represents the largest single Protestant group in the US, and generally takes conservative positions on issues such as homosexuality and abortion.
The report of blocking of the Southern Baptist site comes shortly after a report that a Pentagon official had classified Catholicism as a form of extremism.

I wonder at the wisdom of more young men and women supplying the cannon fodder for our excursions into the Middle East. When their access to select internet sites is denied,they might as well be Communist Russia or China,where freedoms are curtailed.

When will the USCCB and Church learn that this administration is at war with the Church and Christians. We should all let our Congressman and Senators know that this is unacceptable and they will pay if this nonsense does not change. I am retired military and who ever is doing this should be fired regardless of grade. If not we should call for the impeachment of Obama as he is acting like a dictator.
