Mark Zuckerberg Reverses Decision On Free Speech

"Only two weeks after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a strongly worded #JeSuisCharlie statement on the importance of free speech, Facebook has agreed to censor images of the prophet Muhammad in Turkey — including the very type of image that precipitated the Charlie Hebdo attack.

It’s an illustration, perhaps, of how extremely complicated and nuanced issues of online speech really are. It’s also conclusive proof of what many tech critics said of Zuckerberg’s free-speech declaration at the time: Sweeping promises are all well and good, but Facebook’s record doesn’t entirely back it up.

Just this December, Facebook agreed to censor the page of Russia’s leading Putin critic, Alexei Navalny, at the request of Russian Internet regulators. (It is a sign, the Post’s Michael Birnbaum wrote from Moscow, of “new limits on Facebook’s ability to serve as a platform for political opposition movements.”) Critics have previously accused the site of taking down pages tied to dissidents in Syria and China; the International Campaign for Tibet is currently circulating a petition against alleged Facebook censorship, which has been signed more than 20,000 times."

Christian Blogger Shuns Yoga Pants To Avoid Lustful Thoughts

"Veronica Partridge, a Christian blogger, has caused a stir online after publishing a blog post about her decision to stop wearing yoga pants or leggings publicly because they cause men other than her husband to think “lustful thoughts”.

Partridge blogs frequently about her family (she’s a mother of one and is married to Dale, a CEO and motivational speaker), her Christian values, and her life in Central Oregon.”

If Jesus Returned

When people depict your religion as being violent and barbaric, the worst way to prove them wrong is with violence and barbarism.

Bill Nye — Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation

Sparked by a controversial debate in February 2014, Bill Nye has set off on an energetic campaign to spread awareness of evolution and the powerful way it shapes our lives.

In his new book, "Undeniable Evolution and the Science of Creation," Bill Nye explains why race does not really exist; evaluates the true promise and peril of genetically modified food; reveals how new species are born, in a dog kennel and in a London subway; takes a stroll through 4.5 billion years of time; and explores the new search for alien life, including aliens right here on Earth. With infectious enthusiasm, Bill Nye shows that evolution is much more than a rebuttal to creationism; it is an essential way to understand how nature works—and to change the world.
