Will Blogger be Silencing Pro-Lifers and Christians?

I noticed this flag button on my blog this morning and hovered over it. I got this help page explaining the "NEW" button.

Well it seems if you don't like what someone is saying, like maybe immigration issues, or better, issues involving sodomites you can be flagged for hate speech?

The "Flag?" button is a means by which readers of Blog*Spot can help inform us about potentially questionable content, so we can prevent others from encountering such material by setting particular blogs as "unlisted."
Unlisted? Which means what exactly?

What does the 'listing' blog setting do?

The Add your Blog to our listings setting determines whether or not your blog will appear on blogger.com — more specifically, for the blog list on your profile page and the Fresh Blogs list on the Dashboard.

Special Case for Hate Speech

When the community has voted and hate speech is identified on Blog*Spot, Google may exercise its right to place a Content Warning page in front of the blog and set it to "unlisted."
GROUP THINK!
Can you just see the wars going on now with people who disagree with you? You blog flagged because someone doesn't agree with you? I know first hand how one person will get a whole group to vote for or agaisnt when there is an agenda at hand!

You know, I got a blog so I can have a place to clear my head, scream and rant all I want, and whether you want to listen or not is up to you. But I will be damned if someone flags "MY" Opinions as hate because you don't agree with me.

I can see a real problem with people of faith who express their opinions which is usually faith based or biblical based, as being hate speech, especially with the influx of CHRISTIAN BASHING in this country as of late!
