There will be no mention of gay pride on Christian Facebook site Facegloria, as it will exclude any and all content that is not in line with God’s word.
The internet is a wondrous thing, as it is filled with a great many things for each and every type of person, regardless of religious beliefs, sexual orientation and hobbies. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that there now is a religious version of Facebook out there.
It is called Facegloria and it was developed by Brazilian Christians who wanted to have a social media platform of their own that would abide by God’s rules. So imagine a Facebook-like platform where there is no nudity, nu pornographic content, nothing about violence or any other thing that is not line with Christian belief. This however includes all content related to the LGBT community as well.
Therefore, there will be no mention whatsoever about the legalization of same-sex marriage, or about Caitlyn Jenner and the amazing progress in the acceptance of transsexuals. Nor will there be any LGBT members who want to say anything regarding their sexuality or their lifestyle. Essentially, they might have to lie in order to create an account.
And while this is quite a clear sign of discrimination, Facegloria is designed to include only Christian-friendly content. And regardless of the social implications, the members of the LGBT community remain on the Christian black list indefinitely.
However, the fact that gay-related content is not allowed on Facegloria is the least grave fact about it. It might sound like a good idea to have a specialized domain where people can log in and discuss matters related to God’s word, and it most definitely it, provided that this is not the only social media platform that they use.
In order to achieve a proper view of the world, it is crucial that people avoid surrounding themselves with only the things that they like, that they agree with. This leads to the alteration of the proportions that things have and the importance that they bare. Furthermore, it is unhealthy because it prevents people from being informed.
Brazil was a perfect place to develop such a social media platform, as it has an atheist population of only 1%. Therefore, Facegloria was a local hit, gaining 100,000 users in just one month if activity. Web designer associated with Facegloria, Atilla Barros told AFP that they are expecting an even more impressive increase next month, as they have created a mobile phone app for the platform.
“Our network is global. We have bought the Faceglory domaine in English and in all possible languages. We want to take on Facebook and Twitter here and everywhere,” said Mr. Barros.
Therefore, it looks like we will be seeing a lot more of Facegloria once it reaches world-wide proportions with its English version. So get ready to switch Facebook’s Like button with Facegloria’s Amen button. That’s right, Amen!
