There’s Now an Evangelical Christian Version of Facebook in Brazil

Readers of this site know that there are Christian versions of everything that’s secular and popular. For every YouTube, there’s a GodTube waiting to convert you. For every Facebook, there’s Faithbook. And for every “Thrift Shop,” there’s… whatever the hell this is.

But Faithbook just isn’t growing fast enough, I guess, so some folks in Brazil created a new Christian version of the social networking site. It’s called Faceglória and, well, you heathens are never going to appreciate it:

Facegloria, which has attracted 100,000 users in its first month, was set up to serve those who find billionaire entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg’s version sinful.

There’s no “liking” on Facegloria. Here, you click “Amen.”

“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,” one of the founders, web designer Atilla Barros, told AFP.

I don’t understand that logic at all. If you want to “spread His word,” you’re gonna need some unbelievers on the network to spread it to… but there’s just no good reason an atheist would join the network.

It’s just another crappy evangelical version of something the secular world did much better the first time. That’s not new. It’s been happening for decades.
