Question Posted Tuesday September 12 2006, 12:07 am
I found an absolutely disgusting website, www.truechristian.com. Among other things, it says that women are unclean and should be shut away during their period, that if a girl is raped it is her fault for not screaming loud enough but she can be saved if she marries her rapist. It also says the n word several times. I have nothing against christians but this website is horrifying, in fact I'm sure real christians would agree with me. How do I get this website shut down or deleted? I mean, even the kids page is awful: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location) I can't find the name of the host anywhere, so I don't know who to contact.

The owner probably responded the way they did, as to make you believe it's real. I mean if you made something like that, would you tell people it isn't? No.
And I'm 99% positve a pastor would NOT have wrote something so degrading about christians even if they weren't one. Read the FAQ's. None of them even make sense, it's sarcastic and mocking.
You'd probably have a better chance at just moving on and not worrying about it, then actually shutting it down. Anyone who actually believes it's real isn't very wise anyways.

Becasue if this page was for kids why would the womens breast be bigger that their heads? There are to many cus words in here. The background & the pictures look awefull too.If someone wants to learn something about their own religon it souldn`t be this site.

Xenolan answered Tuesday September 12 2006, 10:25 am: I'm guessing that this is a website set up by non-Christians who want to point out some of the absurdities of the Bible. There are indeed passages in the Bible that would seem to endorse things like what you describe, and it is common for those who disapprove of the Bible and its teachings to highlight these portions of the text.
But you might as well forget about shutting it down, because you won't be able to. The site does not seem to be illegal, it's just promoting ideas and opinions that you do not like. If the site were providing instructions for how to carry out a terror attack, or displaying pictures of children without clothes, or threatening someone directly, then you might be able to call the FBI or something - but they might not be able to do anything either, because the site could be hosted in some foreign country where the local authorities don't care.
The internet is Free Speech taken to almost the ultimate extreme. That means that there will be a lot of offensive stuff out there. In the absence of an internet censorship program like they have in China, we'll all have to live with it. [ Xenolan's advice column | Ask Xenolan A Question ]
