My filter classifies this blog as "Indecency" so I can't read it.

Probably because of the post title. Can you open this? http://www.lbauman.ca

When I try to open either of those two links, my filter (Covenant Eyes) blocks the connection.
If I copy the link and then change to https rather than http, CE will allow the page to load.

It is a secure site. I use Covenant Eyes as well, and I don't think it has ever coughed at this. When I go to lbauman.ca, or http://www.lbauman.ca, it starts going to http:// then automatically switches to https://.

So I guess in the future, I should rename the page if I'm talking about something like that. And enter the url as https://www.lbauman.ca

I can get into your site but get blocked when I click on the date. That is my problem, not yours.

it’s hard to grasp what a huge problem it is, and, i agree with you, it can lead to horrible treatment of others, in addition to self-inflicted hell.

i know little about these measures, but, the problems are so widespread, governments are attempting response! (for me) this gives a clue about the high costs associated with it.

i don’t believe that gov mandates are the answer, we can pray they don’t make everything worse, which seems to be a frequent unintended consequence. :( lester is on a good path in his blog.

porn has existed throughout history.
with the advent of “techie devices in everyone’s hands,” the readily-available, hard to ignore, MASSIVE QUANTITIES have exponentially worsened the problems.

i just don’t believe the human brain was designed to cope with these (infinite) quantities.
add to that, lester’s point about how the male brain processes images, the visual.

i believe we are still infants in understanding how to handle technology; so far, there are some very rough edges. we can hope, in future, people will look on this period and think, “how ghastly! - what were they thinking?!”

however, many have complained for decades about shoddy tv programming, which has generally only worsened, to the degree many no longer view any of it. (not only those with religious convictions.)
different organized measures have been attempted to control tv programming (similar to these anti-porn measures?) .. but, results are not spectacular.

lester is on the right path, it’s about personal convictions, self restraint, understanding the high costs+dangers. understanding sin is not innocuous. personal choices have community costs, even when not intended.

refusing temptation can be deeply painful in the moment.
a person must be convinced the rewards are greater.

What browser do you use? I believe Chrome generally auto-redirects from http:// to https:// as part of their "Secure Everywhere" initiative. I used IE to verify that CE was blocking only the http:// for me and not the https://.

My normal browser is Chrome. I use Edge when I need a "second opinion". I very seldom use Internet Explorer.
