As all of us know, that all of our emails, phone calls, text messages and searches are stored in a huge computer by our government. We traditional Catholics have nothing to be ashamed of because (hopefully) we are not searching for pornography or other sinful things.
But, the big internet servers, like google and wikipedia, have their political, social and sexual agenda. So, as Catholics, who love Jesus and are working for His Kingdom, we need to go the extra mile to avoid supporting evil powers.
The internet is a new power that can be used for good or evil. All of you intelligent, tech savvy youth, put your talents to use to come up with ways of using this system for Jesus’ good and not the evil politically correct agenda of the devil.
So, on my favorite pages, I have Duck Duck Go. I very rarely use Google any more. When they put rainbow colors on at the Moscow Olympics, I switched to Duck Duck Go. Its motto is “The search engine that doesn’t track you.” or “To give you a great search without tracking you”.
Another search engine is ixquick. They also do not track and they have information on how the government and other entities are tracking you.
As you know, the government has already classified Catholics, Evangelicals and al qaeda in the same category as extreme religions and dangerous. Now, you can just imagine how they must classify traditional Catholics. I am sure we are on the top of their list as fanatical dangerous christians. So I am sure that they especially will be tracking us.
I visit a lot of families here in my parish. I am still learning how to get around Phoenix. So I put the address in Map-quest to get directions. What I do, is put in the address a few digits different from the real street address. Maybe I am being a bit paranoid, but with what Snowden revealed, government surveillance is absolutely real.
We traditional Catholics should not be afraid, Jesus said over and over; “Be Not Afraid”. But He also said; “Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves.” St. Matt. 10: 16.
