SAN JOSE, Calif., June 28, 2018 /Christian Newswire
/ -- USA.Life
is a new social network being built by a pastor to provide an alternative to the liberal leaning social media outlets. This site doesn't censor Christians and is for all people who love "life, liberty and happiness."
"Christians can't be censored, because we have the most important message of God's grace and truth," said Steven Andrew, the founder. As a pastor, he understands the urgency to share God's Word. He is also a Silicon Valley technology leader, who has led initiatives for Cisco, Better Homes and Gardens, Sega and Stanford.
"People are signing up fast at www.USA.Life to get preferred usernames and updates," Andrew said.
He also is building a search engine, 1776Free.com, to "provide better results with links of Christians and ministries that have been censored by the left-leaning tech giants." USA.Life and 1776Free are the core parts of the 'Christian Internet.'
Both sites hope to launch later this summer. Andrew set up a crowdfunding page
with a goal to raise $778,000 to fund the completion.
"We don't have the billions of dollars the tech giants have, so we need Christians who want freedom and privacy to contribute whatever they can," he said.
Supporters get a special reward, such as their name credited in the computer code with a keepsake PDF to print and other perks depending on what they give. For larger donations, individuals and ministries can get their name on the founders wall on both sites.
"USA.Life is needed to protect our Christian free speech granted by the First Amendment. Our goal is to unite the nation, because Facebook and Twitter divided the country by restricting Christians," Andrew said.
Users can share photos, updates, news, videos and messages. There are groups and "people can connect with those most important to them."
He is working to have a community in the hundreds of millions of users. People from all over the world have gotten their accounts.
"Freedom and privacy could be lost forever without USA.Life and 1776Free. However, Christians can save the internet if everyone gives $10 or more today. The campaign has already generated over $156,000 toward the $778,000 goal," Andrew said.
He provides an overview, assessment of risks to the project and answers frequently asked questions on the crowdfunding page at www.USA.Life
