Skip to comments.Website Pulled on US Church That Wants to Burn Koran (pulled for "anti-Islamic messages")
Posted on 09/09/2010 10:36:01 AM PDT by kristinn
The small Florida church that has sparked global outrage with its plan to hold a Koran-burning event had its website pulled from the Internet on Thursday by its host.
Dan Goodgame, a spokesman for the San Antonio, Texas-based web hosting firm Rackspace, told AFP the evangelical Dove World Outreach Center church had, "violated the Offensive Content section of its Acceptable Use policy."
Goodgame said officials from the web hosting firm had spoken with Jones on Wednesday afternoon and informed him that he had until midnight to migrate to another site after complaints about "hate speech."
"It was a fairly short conversation in which we reminded him of the accepted use policy," Goodgame said. "He (Jones) said he intended to still post his anti-Islamic messages."

Freedom of speech my azz.
Religion of peace my azz
Well if he does burn the Koran in the spirit of brotherly love I’ll pass water on it.
This is no longer the USA.
Just 1st step in pulling church websites that speak against homosexuality.
Is saying “Death to Islamic Extremist Terrorists” Anti-Islamic hate speech? Is condemning Adolf Hitler “hate speech”?
I’ve no problem with this, as long as it’s not ‘selectively’ applied to their clients. The ISP has a right to deny service to someone who abuses their Code of Conduct contract.
Now, if this ISP is hosting flag-burning, bible desecrating and hate mongering websites - then we have a problem.
The church involved should ask WikiLeaks to host its site.
I am sure they would do the same for Christians.... um... okay never mind
So it takes the next step on censorship...Rackspace should be boycotted...
And we can all be sure that there would NEVER be anything that qualifies as ‘hate-speech’ on this website: http://www.buzzflash.com/

I don't like what the pastor is doing. But this kind of thing pushes me to line up behind him. Its the whole "don't like what you say, defend your right to say it" kind of thing.
One of these days very soon this very tactic is going to be used on us.
You don’t have freedom of speech. That depends on your terms of service with your web hosting company.
Just like FR. You speech is monitored by Moderators, private property, no difference.
I agree and I understand. But I expect to see this tactic used to shut down FR itself one of these days.
ya censorhip...no freedom of speech.
You’re missing the point.
I know who I am not going to buy hosting from now.
