David Limbaugh Repeats Discredited Claim About Military Blocking Church Website
Topic: WorldNetDaily

David Limbaugh wrote in his April 25 WorldNetDaily column:

America’s political and cultural left is, step by step, demonizing and marginalizing Christians and Christian values, to the point that even the congenitally apathetic should be concerned.

Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports that the U.S. military has blocked access to the Southern Baptist Convention’s website on an undetermined number of military bases because it supposedly includes “hostile content.”

Just one little problem: It's not true.

The Tennessean reports that the reason the SBC website was blocked was because military software filters had detected potentially harmful malware on the site, and that the site was unblocked after the malware was removed.

Will Limbaugh correct his column and tell his readers the truth? Don't count on it.
