If there’s one thing you should know about Michael Lee Mason, Christian father of three, is that he does not like the Devil. That’s why he created FreeFiltering. It’s a free Christian internet filter intended to keep what he believes is perverse and threatening content off your browser.
If Mason has anything to say about it, the Father of Lies will leave your WiFi the hell – I mean the heck — alone.
Birth of FreeFiltering
Mason says LGBTQ Pride Month inspired him to protect children from the “dangerous LGBTQ cult.” His goal was to block all content that would be a bad influence on kids, starting with “LGBTQ+ propaganda,” pornography, and information about abortion.
But mostly, Mason doesn’t like LGBTQ+ stuff. I mean, he really doesn’t. No, really, he does NOT.
“While the world celebrates Pride for the entire month of June, we mourn the fact that our nation has embraced the sin of pride as a virtue,” Mason said in a press release. “We applaud the parents who are putting in the enormous effort necessary to properly form their kids’ consciences in a culture that has become so hostile to holiness.”
Mason also said he was unhappy with other parental control companies that he felt were compromising on Christian values. He wanted to make sure “every Christian family has the ability to protect their home internet from the ‘wiles of the devil.’”
“Christian parents are rightfully concerned about the way their kids are being systematically exposed to false ideas about human sexuality at school,” Mason said. “Then, those ideas are all-too-easily reinforced with unfettered internet access at home.”
How Does FreeFiltering Work?
According to Mason, all it takes is a “simple adjustment” to the settings on your WiFi router in order to stop your home network “from accessing nearly two million websites devoted to promoting pornography and other evil causes.” (Gee, I hope Parentology doesn’t fall into that group.)
The New York Daily News says the service is free (hence the name FreeFiltering). But if you’re really stoked about kicking Satan’s ass right out of your WiFi, you can pay for a premium plan that will give you “more advanced controls over the experience.” FreeFiltering users will be rewarded with “ongoing residual commissions” if they refer their porno-hating buddies who then decide to upgrade to the premium service.
“We adopted this type of affiliate marketing business model from the beginning, because we anticipate being censored by the major digital ad platforms because of our commitment to historic Christian values,” Mason said.
If you’re on the fence about signing up for FreeFiltering, think about your children. Mason says kids are exposed to ideas at school that you might not appreciate, and that you probably have no control over. Then your kids come home, get on the Internet, and within a few seconds they “spiral into catastrophic physical and spiritual harm.”
