The internet has opened up a vast world of knowledge and experience. It has also enabled the harassment of people for their views, experiences, appearances, or demographic backgrounds. Pew Research reports that, “Fully 40 percent of online users have experienced bullying, harassment, and intimidation.”
The distance and anonymity the internet affords gives harassers the courage they need to attack others.
Of course the Christian, living to please our Heavenly Father will avoid using the internet as a tool of unkindness towards others. —Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
