Dove World Outreach Center Website Removed by Host

Thursday, September 9, 2010
Rackspace, the web host for Dove World Outreach Center has done what no one else can; make them disappear, well at least removed from the Internet.

While the church is crying censorship, Rackspace's argument that maliciously setting fire to a holy text violates the "no hate speech" clause in Dove World Outreach's contract is pretty inarguable. Pastor Terry Jones has until midnight to gather up his Internet flock and move them to another host. The First Amendment protects Jones's right to express his beliefs as he pleases, but it doesn't mean Rackspace has to put up with it—especially if it violates a binding legal agreement between the two.
