As Christians, God has instilled in us a firm knowledge of what is right as well as what is wrong. Censorship, in concept, seems right and just. However, by allowing the government to permanently remove something, we are not dealing with the root issue: sin, lust, and deception. Censorship of explicit lyrics,pornography, and security threats is just sweeping sin under a rug. We know what is right and wrong; thus we need to exercise this gift by avoiding all of these. God gave us free will for a reason, and it needs to be our own choice to avoid these things. In the end, I disagree that the government should completely censor people’s access to inappropriate music, movies, and books because this is not a content issue, it is a heart issue.
