Powerful companies rule our world today, but stories are coming out about how they're out of touch with the world views of millions of Christian and conservative Americans, even as they're censoring the messages you're allowed to read and watch online.
The latest case: This week, social network powerhouse Facebook came under fire for a survey asking users whether pedophiles should be able to ask underage girls for photographs. The questionnaire read: "In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook's policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures?"
The users were given multiple choice answers, none of which included "calling the police," but were instead: "This content should not be allowed on Facebook, and no one should be able to see it" to "this content should be allowed on Facebook, and I would not mind seeing it."
Evangelist Franklin Graham called the survey "ridiculous and shameful" in a post on his own Facebook page.
"Why Why would Facebook ask such a question? Graham wrote. "They surveyed users asking if pedophiles should be able to ask children for sexual pictures. It just shows you how low our moral standards in this country have fallen. Many people today don't seem to recognize right from wrong. I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan were appalled. Facebook now says the question was a mistake—well, to say the least, I firmly agree. To have a survey asking this is ridiculous and it's shameful. Pedophilia is just wickedness. The Bible says, 'For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts. (Mark 7:21).'
