Yes of course, we should only ban/allow what you personally find
That won't cause any problems in an operating system reaching the

Sorry, I am just a little confused, was this email to me? Sorry about
the confusion! :)
Also as I said before, *PornView isn't even a pornographic application*

So yeah, an app called "Porn View" showed up while I was
demoing Ubuntu to a friend. Despite the brief embarrassment
and explanations, I doubt that person will
take Ubuntu seriously. We should probably restrict
pornographic apps to the store and keep the lenses PG.
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 mine:
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.
