Some Brazilian Evangelicals Created a Sin-Free Facebook Where You Can Click 'Amen' Instead of 'Like'

Around 20 percent of Brazil's population is Evangelical, and Faceglória is a place for them to connect and talk about God without worrying about foul language or someone's bikini pics.

According to the Telegraph, four Evangelical Christians in Brazil just launched a sin-safe version of Facebook called Faceglória. The site's creators met while working at the mayor's office in Ferraz de Vasconcelos, near Sao Paolo, and banded together over their shared loathing of the vile, pornographic filth Zuckerberg allows on his social network. Around 100,000 users have signed up in the first month.

Around 20 percent of Brazil's population is Evangelical, and Faceglória is a place for them to connect and talk about God without worrying about foul language or someone's bikini pics. The site is primarily marketed to Brazilians (the whole thing is in Portuguese), but anyone with a valid email can sign up.

Faceglória is under constant surveillance by more than 20 moral police, whose job it is to detect and dispose of posts containing sexy photos, violent videos, or just one of the 600 banned words. Again, since the site is in Portuguese, you might be able to slip in a "shit" or "fuck" without getting immediately nabbed, and you can still find a few rogue profile pics of Magic Mike or a couple of hot model-type dudes kissing.

The whole thing bares a pretty striking resemblance to Facebook, but with a few key differences. There is an overwhelming amount of cloud imagery, to really drive home the "heavens" thing, and instead of "liking" posts, users give them an "Amen."

All the while, a looping stream of holy music like "Ressuscita-me" rings out through an embedded Soundcloud widget on the page. If you are tired of all that obscenity and porn on Facebook and wish there was a constant playlist of worship songs playing whenever you socialized online, you can sign up here.
