Christians set up ‘gay-free’ version of Facebook

Faceglória is a 'sin-free' version of Facebook

Christians have set up a social network, similar to Facebook, where any mention of homosexuality is completely banned.

Facegloria, which has attracted 100,000 members since its launch last month, forbids swearing and any erotic content. It is intended to be the first ‘sin-free’ social networking site.

Instead of posting ‘like’ on posts, users press an ‘Amen’ button.

While Facegloria, based out of Brazil, is currently only available in Portuguese, other language services and a mobile app are being planned.

‘On Facebook you see a lot of violence and pornography. That’s why we thought of creating a network where we could talk about God, love and to spread his word,’ web designer Atilla Barros told AFP.

The network is policed by a team of 20 volunteers, aiming to hunt down any content that could damage the fragile hearts and minds of Evangelical Christians. 600 words are automatically banned.

Their aim is to attain 10 million users in the next two years.
