A religious cult in South America has launched its own version of Facebook named FaithFile, which has banned such content as: swearing and erotica.

FaithFile users regularly share biblical quotes, and priests are encouraged to post recordings of their services on the site. A 'Praise the Lord' button allows users to expressed their approval of a post.

To be able to create a profile on the social network, potential users must have: a biblical name, heterosexual parents, a reference from their local priest. The site also restricts terminology, with only 600 words approved by FaithFile administrators.

One of the founders of the site, Ezekiel said:"Our social network is superior. Our social network is superior because it is: the way, the truth, and the light. It is superior because we are Christian."

FaithFile has been criticised for expressing extreme conservative views and failing to recognise the diversity within the Christian community.

A number of users of the site have posted such comments as 'Sexual and homosexual propaganda promote incest' and 'masturbation paves the way to Hell.'

Administrators ise the slogan "To know the LORD look to FaithFile" to promote the site.
