Jay Sekulow: Obama gave control of Internet to UN, will 'censor the church'

In a March 28, 2014 email to members of the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow warns that "the President wants to hand over control of the Internet to a multinational group, including corrupt dictatorships in China, Russia, and Iran."

As was already reported when American Taliban conspiracy theorist Pamela Geller made this claim, it is a big fat lie.

In fact, it is the exact opposite of what actually happened. Politico reports that the administration rebuffed calls from Russia and China to give authority to the United Nations-led International Telecommunication Union, and instead concluded a sixteen year transition of Internet oversight to a US-backed nonprofit.

Yet just like Geller, Jay Sekulow is not only perfectly comfortable flat out lying about what actually happened, but is also comfortable promoting ridiculous conspiracy theories in relation to his big fat lie.

Just like Geller, Seklow insists that this will lead to censorship of Christianity.

There is simply no excuse for the Obama Administration’s latest move.

The President wants to hand over control of the Internet to a multinational group, including corrupt dictatorships in China, Russia, and Iran.

Why?

China, Russia, and Iran have all signaled they want greater control over the Internet, including control over what we see and write.

Does this mean censoring the Church if it reaches out to Islamic lands?

Does this mean exposing our own computers to greater risk of fraud and other cybercrimes?

America has kept the Internet free for a generation; let’s keep it free. Stand with the ACLJ and stand against the Obama Administration’s latest attack on your liberty.

Rest assured Sekulow, it IS being kept free. Now if only we could keep it truthful in the process.
