Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.

~ Mark Twain

A Civil Court in India has ordered 22 social networking sites, including Facebook and Google, to delete anti-religion posts. Why? Because it causes “irreparable loss and injury to the people who are offended by them”. Well guess what, I’m offended by their complaints and their disregard for my feelings. Can I take them to court? Sounds pathetic, doesn’t it?

It’s quite simple really. If you don’t like what’s on a website, then don’t look at it. Leave other people out of this. Stating one’s opinion about mythology never hurt anyone. Actually, scratch that; everytime someone criticizes one of the Abrahamic religions they get death threats.

You have absolutely no right to tell people what they can or can’t read. You can’t force people to think the way you want them to think. That’s called oppression.

If having your beliefs challenged terrifies you, then you’re either a close-minded twit or hold those beliefs without a good reason.
