I'm Noticing a Trend

Via The Museum of Left Wing Lunacy. The story goes that Google has denied a Christian website for undisclosed purposes saying it does not fit with their policy of accepting websites for Google advertisement.

Despite accepting advertisements for such groups as homosexual singles sites, Google is coming under scrutiny again for allegedly banning commercials for a Christian organization., the group looking to have like-minded people move to one state to help restore godly values to government, says it's been rejected from placing ads on Google AdSense.

An e-mail from the Mountain View, Calif.-based company cited "sensitive content" as the reason for the rejection, though it was not specific in what specifically was considered sensitive.

"After reviewing your application, our program specialists have found that it does not comply with our policies," the Google AdSense Team wrote. "We have reviewed your site and found that many of the ads that would appear on your site would not be relevant to your site's content. As the ads would not provide a valuable experience for your site's users or our advertisers, we feel that your site isn't a good fit for the AdSense program at this time."

Interesting, isn't it? Homosexual groups can have their butt party websites get Google advertising, but a Christian site is "sensitive content." Please.

This isn't the first time Google has subjectively dictated who can and can't have access to the Google gold mine(see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, there is a lot more if you want to type "google news" and search his website). LGF has continually asked to be put on as a news source, but has been rejected for one reason or another while extreme leftist blogs have obtained "news source" status.

Google has never been clear on how they pick websites. It's fairly obvious though that they have left-wing people working there to stonewall those opinions they don't agree with while promoting those they do.
