Answers in Genesis website hijacks web history!

Answers in Genesis website hijacks web history!
This was originally reported by the BBC as a story on porn sites that track users by accessing their browser history (via a browser bug). It is a massive invasion of privacy.

However, reading the actual paper, I found that the website Answers in Genesis is listed as one of the non-porn sites that hijack a user's browser history.

Epic fail! XD

What is the purpose of porn?
Its ok to have doubt, just dont let that doubt become the answers.

You dont hate God, you hate the church game.

"God is not what you imagine or what you think you understand. If you understand you have failed." Saint Augustine

Your mind works very simply: you are either trying to find out what are God's laws in order to follow them; or you are trying to outsmart Him. -Martin H. Fischer

To be a source of evil and hate and to hold humanity back from achieving it's full potential for thousands of years...o wait, no that's the other one. Silly me.

What about youtube, financial, movie and plenty of other websites do you single out the religious one. What's the harm in gathering information about your audience. When you have a message isn't who your audience is important information to have. Why assume it's nefarious in nature? Especially when religion is nota bout keeping secrets, but sharing openly.
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post

Because none of those other sites sell themselves by pretending to offer special insight into an imaginary fount of probity.
