Justice Thomas’ Shot Across the Bow

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that effectively dismissed a case that had been brought regarding President Trump’s practice of blocking followers. But it wasn’t the case’s outcome that made the biggest news – instead, it was Justice Clarence Thomas’ words that put Big Tech on notice for continued infringements on free speech. 

Thomas indicated that he feels social media companies should be seen more as “carriers,” or almost as utility companies, that ought to be regulated as such. He also questioned the constitutionality of Section 230, a portion of federal law that Big Tech has been reliant upon in defending their curbs on speech. 

“…[I]t seems rather odd to say that something is a government forum when a private company has unrestricted authority to do away with it,” Thomas wrote.

Legislative Update

Please pray for Maine’s pro-family legislators in Augusta who are being confronted by some really bad public policy proposals. Pray that they would be guided by God’s wisdom and would stand firm in their principles as they fight back.
