Re: Remove Pornographic Apps from the "Apps available for download"


Yes of course, we should only ban/allow what you personally find (un)acceptable.That won't cause any problems in an operating system reaching the world with numerous cultures or anything.
Also as I said before, PornView isn't even a pornographic application

      Perhaps we should remove the Bible apps as well then. I find it
      seriously offensive. But maybe it's only nature that's unholy? USA
      are now making it illegal to teach the history of racism. They are
      also trying to make it illegal to teach non-theism. 


      We should not forbid other peoples wishes because of ancient
      beliefs in witches and weird stuff. If Ubuntu starts to sensor
      things, it will no doubt be my reason to not only drop out, but
      become an extremely verbal enemy. 


      What if we sell books, should Lady Chatterley's Lover be forbidden
      because it might not be perfectly suitable to children or
      fanatical christians? I will never, ever be a part of anything
      remotely similar to that. Present your next idea.

    I definitely agree with the idea that we should eliminate
    pornographic apps from "Apps Available for Download". That being
    said, I find it seriously offensive that you want to remove Bible
    apps. Nature itself is unholy. People are also unholy. I am unholy.
    No one but the Lord, Jesus Christ is holy. I find it seriously
    offensive that you wish to remove Christian Apps from that list. I
    am not just saying this because it offends me, I am saying this
    because (I understand that people from this list are from all around
    the world) people from other countries probably don't know this, but
    the United States was built upon Christianity. Now, the very people
    who built America would not recognise it because of all of the
    "politically-correctness" that is going on in America. A ton of
    public places (like public schools) try their best to keep
    Christianity out of them.


    I can also tell you that I cannot find the love and peace
    that I can in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is not just my God, he is
    also yours, and everybody's. You and everybody else can reject Him
    and tell me that He is not real, but how could I be an accident (if
    you are an atheist)? Give me just one time where you felt the love
    of your god. Just one. If you tell me that you are a Christian, you
    obviously are just saying that, because a true Christian knows how
    important it is to spread the Good News (which is that Jesus Christ
    was born in a little manger, died a horrible death on the cross
      for our sins, and ROSE FROM THE GRAVE. He did
    this all for us. He did this because He loved us. Nails were
    hammered into His flesh and through His hands and feet. His last
    words on the cross were "It is finished.". I hope that you and
    everyone else on this list has read this and sort of understands
    what I am getting at.


    If you want to follow Christ forever and stay with Him forever after
    you die, here is what you must do, but the choice is yours, not


    1. Admit to God that you are a sinner. "For all have sinned and fall
    short of the Glory of God." - Romans 3:23. This includes EVERYBODY:
    ME, YOU, EVERYBODY ON THIS PLANET). If you do not understand what
    sin is, you do it everyday without thinking about it, and so do I.
    It is basically anything you do that is wrong. For example (I am
    just stating these as an example, I am not saying that you have done
    them): murder, stealing, lying (a big one, we all lie), just to name
    a few, but there are a ton more.


    2. TRULY believe that God sent Jesus Christ to be your Lord and
    Saviour. Read the paragraph above. Adding to that paragraph: He also
    performed miracles to show how truly great He was and still is. He
    turned water into wine in literally A SECOND. Say you don't believe
    me, but you probably will once you read this: He made you and me. He
    made everything that is on earth (everything expect for man-made
    objects, including pornography which we all want to remove from the
    dash). Other man-made objects include all buildings.


    3. Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. This
    does mean publicly professing that you are a Christian and that the
    Lord has come into your heart and soul. It is hard to do for some
    people, but you need to do this in order to be saved. (The term here
    "saved" means saved from spending eternity in Hell, which is what
    people do when they choose to not follow Jesus.)


    Do this, and I guarantee you will feel a lot better. You will have a
    sense of peace come over you in the worst situations like no other.
    You will know it is Jesus. You will also be comforted knowing that
    Jesus is in your life. Christianity is like no other religion. Other
    religions require that you do as their god says or else something
    bad will happen to you and you will be punished. Christianity is a
    relationship between you and God. This will be a mouthful: Jesus,
    God, and the Holy Spirit are all the same, yet they are different at
    the same time. This is usually very complicated for everyone to
    understand. God sent His one and only Son, Jesus to die on the
    cross. Even though Jesus is God, they are still the different. All
    three of these (God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit) have different
    jobs. The Holy Spirit is the one who changes you and helps you to
    become a Christian by working in your heart. Jesus Christ is God's
    Son who died on the cross for you. God is both our and Jesus'
    Father. He is our Heavenly Father, meaning that He is not our
    physical "on-earth" father. You do not necessarily need to fully
    understand this before becoming a Christian, Jesus will help you
    understand after you become a Christian.


    Please be careful: some people believe that being baptised makes you
    a Christian. It does not. It is a way of showing others you are a
    Christian. You can do this after you become a Christian if you like,
    though it is not required. I hope you chose to follow the steps I
    provided. Please remember, it is a simple, yet complicated choice:
    do you want to go to Heaven or Hell? Do you want to live your life
    following Jesus and letting Him lead you to the places you need to
    be, or would you rather live your life in a cloudy environment,
    where voices all over tell you what you should do (but what is
    actually what will get you in trouble)? What will your choice be?
    Will you choose to follow Jesus? I did and was changed on the inside
    and out. I was a completely new person. All Christians still sin,
    since they are humans (read the verse above), but Christians sin a
    whole lot less. I hope you have taken time out of your day to read
    this and have also decided to follow Jesus Christ and to accept Him
    as your Lord and Saviour.


    In Christ,
