I, and probably all of you, use Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc., to search Web traffic without giving it a whole lot of thought.
And, if you use search engines with any kind of regularity, you’ve either fat-fingered a keystroke or pulled on a search list that made you go, “Whoa! I’m sure glad my kids didn’t see me pull that up.”
Of course when it comes to controlling what your kids – or you, for that matter – see online, the Internet equivalent of flipping the TV remote to a different station or turning the radio dial is always the easiest way to go.
Another way now available is to go to a site such as seekfind.org which bills itself as a Christian search engine designed to filter out a bunch of junk you might not want to even come across in the first place.
Just as a test, I typed in the word “basketball” and came up with many Christian-based movie reviews, some on films such as “Alien: Resurrection,” in which I don’t recall Sigourney Weaver playing Horse with a 100-tooth slime monster. At any rate, the intent is in the right place.
