Recently a new way for Catholics to use Google came
This is from their about page.
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
Cathoogle is powered by Google using "safe
search" technology, it produces balanced results from all
perspectives, from sites all over the internet with more weighting to
given to Catholic websites and sites containing content relating to
Catholics and Catholicism. At the same time our search engine
eliminates sites and web pages containing adult themed and explicit
sexual content from web search results.
The site is not
associated or affiliated with Google.com, we work closely with Google
to help ensure that the ads are not objectionable in nature, however,
some of the results and ads that are displayed may not be in line
with Catholic doctrine and we do not endorse of any of the results or
ads displayed on Cathoogle.
If you looked up something like contraception or aborion using
Cathoogle you get quite different results as the top hits weighted
towards orthodox Catholic sites for the most part.
As you can imagine this search service does not sit to well with
some Catholics of a progressive persuasion. I just got word about
another new search service using Google that provides quite different
hits then those provided by Cathoogle.
Are you tired of using search terms that give you a bunch of results that you don’t want? That you have to go through page after page of results to find answers that match what you want?
If so then liberalcatholicgoogle.com is the site for you!
Our specialized search algorithm will give you the results you want without a bunch of search chaff. No more will you find such sites as catholic.com, Catholic Encyclopedia, etch cluttering up your search results. Though one problem is that even among us progressive Catholics there are people who accept one so-called "dogma" and not another. When we pick and choose what we accept from the hierarchical Church it is not surprising that others pick and choose a different set. But we are a big tent Church and to accommodate this LiberalCatholicGoogle will further filter your search results based on your theological prospective.
When you go to our configuration page you will see a selection of check boxes such as for example:
Just check off the items that best match what you accept.
Or you can just check off
And the checkmarks will be checked accordingly.
After then after answering a short questionnaire you’re off to search results matched perfectly to what you already believe!
No more will you be bothered with pesky Vatican documents such as Humanae Vitae or annoying quotes from the Church Fathers in your search results. You will find plenty of content from the National Catholic Reporter, Commonweal, America, and other great Catholic sources such as the New York Times and the Washington Post.
Now sometimes you actually want something from a source such as the Vatican or Scripture. In these cases simply checkmark
With Vatican Safe Search on – we have a special search algorithm first developed for Cherie Blair. The search will go through Vatican documents using the specialized search pick also known as the Cherie pick to return passages of documents that best match your search preferences and search terms. The Cherie pick also works perfectly wellwith Scripture Safe Search – on. You will be sure to get scripture such as"judge not’ without results such as "go and sin no more" or mean passages from homophobic St Paul. Within seconds you will have select passages to prove to other Catholics whatever you want!
