Holy Crap: Catholic Google

Catholic search engine powered by Google striving to provide an easy to use resource to anyone wanting to learn more about Catholicism and provide a safer way for good Catholics to surf the web.

CatholicGoogle is powered by Google using “safe search” technology, it produces results from all over the internet with more weighting to given to Catholic websites and eliminates the vast majority of unsavoury content, such as pornography. The site is not associated or affiliated with Google.com, we work closely with Google to help ensure that the adverts are not objectionable in nature, however, some of the results and adverts that are displayed may not be in line with Catholic doctrine and we do not endorse of any of the results or adverts displayed on Catholic Google.

The best way for good Catholics to surf the web

One thought on “Holy Crap: Catholic Google

  1. I’m very interested in these types of websites. On the positive side, they highlight the bias inherent in any search engine. Some might not think of the normal Google results as being any more or less biased than Google + Catholic filter, since even Google has to weed out hundreds or thousands of possibly relevant responses in order to deliver up a top 10 list of results.

    On the other hand, if filters prove popular here, they are also going to be more attractive to policymakers eager to censor the web.

    I guess I’m in favor of Catholic Google if we know the filters it’s using. For example, are sites critical of Pope Benedict knocked out? It would be interesting to see if the Vatican itself endorsed such a filter, as a digital Index Librorum Prohibitorum:
