Dear friends,

I wanted to share with the community here an important issue that's going to affect anybody interested in free access to spirituality or web forums online: The UK Internet censorship bill. Its been launched as a censor against child pornography websites to protect our children, however what is not known about it is that esoteric websites and internet forums are also included in the bill - without being publicly announced... Spiritual, occult and esoteric websites are conveniently being categorised to the same degree as pornography, terrorism, violence, suicide etcÂ…! This means that all paranormal, supernatural, occult, new age, spiritual, alternative religion websites etc... will soon be banned from public viewing in the UK (and it may very well be an example for other countries to follow, as Canada and Australia have already announced similar plans) if we don't do anything about it. If this matters to you please help spread the word so we can all group together and stand up to this bill.

Please sign the petition and read more info at http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/uk-prim...

Doesn't the UK have laws protecting religion? I'm just wondering because I know the Wicca religion originated from the UK. We don't have much of a problem here in America because of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and various other laws. Though many Christians do try to have our sites and various other things banned/censored; it always get quashed.

I didn't read the petition before writing this post, so I do apologize if I get off topic. I highly recommend speaking to an attorney regarding this issue, see what kinds of laws [if any] there that protects religion and reference those laws within the petition.

Pagan religions, and the like are NOT a danger for children. Unlike child pornography, those other things are not a real threat to society.

I wish you a plenitude of luck on your campaign.

Blessed Be,

I live in the UK and we have discrimanatory laws supposed to protect gender, race and religion. As a pagan i have not personally felt any negativity towards myself. However, because of the minority of extremely evil and vile humans in this world, the good majority always suffer. Esoteric gives the uneducated and unenlightened a scare. All we can do to combat the ignorant is to rise above it and teach and tell the truth about the universe we live in x
