Jesus said the world would hate him, but the World Wide Web? Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Blocking Jesus from the Internet sounds like something out of a communist country, but try a Connecticut school. Andrew Lampart, an 18-year-old at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury was using the class computer to research for a project on gun control -- or at least he tried to. Every conservative website he visited was blocked. He couldn't get to the NRA, the Second Amendment Foundation, the Connecticut Republican Party, or even Christianity.com. But the same censorship didn't apply to Planned Parenthood, the state Democratic Party, and pro-gun control websites. "I knew it was important to get facts from for both sides of the case," Andrew said. Too bad his school doesn't feel the same way. When Andrew complained, the administration said their school wants to promote "balance in the instructional process." But if this is balance, I'd hate to see what imbalance is! Free speech should be exactly that: free.
