Hello.  Who would I talk to about this newsfeed in Logos Bible Software?

Hi Gary. In all honesty, I can't answer your question as to who to speak to, but, if you (like me) are unhappy about some of the news you are seeing, you can turn it off. 

In the upper right hand corner, click the gear cog and deselect "Faithlife News" (see picture below).

There was a recent discussion about this but am unable to find it.

EDIT: Found: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/121352/793971.aspx 

Peace  Smile

Romans 14:19 (NRSV)
19 Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

Hey Rick,

Yea, that was my original post.  Seems there would be some sort of mindfulness of what is allowed in Logos.  Meaning if it links from within, it should not point people to unedifying sites.  One goes to Christian Post, which is not Christian.  I had to click away from an article, due to seeing a photo of a woman on top of a guy in a car.  Simply, not edifying.

Gary George:
 One goes to Christian Post, which is not Christian.


In the broader world, the Christian Post is considered to be:

wikipedia:

The Christian Post is a nondenominational, Evangelical Christian newspaper based in Washington, D.C. Launched initially as an online publication, the newspaper was founded in 2000 to deliver news, information, and commentaries relevant to Christians across denominational lines and to bring greater attention to activities of Christians and Christian groups in United States and around the world. It moved its headquarters from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C. in 2006. Contents include Church news, ministries news, mission news, education news, Christian entertainment news, health-related news, opinions, U.S. news, and international news. Also featured are devotionals, cartoons, and videos. The Christian Post has offices in Washington, New York, and San Francisco, as well as internationally, in countries including Indonesia, Singapore, and Mexico.

The newspaper's Honorary Chairman is the late Dr. Ralph D. Winter, founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission. Its chairman is currently William L. Wagner, a former second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention. William Anderson is its Publisher and CEO.

To expect Faithlife to filter it is inappropriate - you did the correct thing: you clicked away from something you personally found offensive. All of us must do this although what we find offensive differs.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I spoke with Bob concerning this, he was apologetic.  Will see if they are able to offer a news feed that comes from a greater Biblical world view.

The way I, as a mature person, see it is - If I see inappropriate content, first: I'd click away from it, and second: I wouldn't blame Faithlife for it or expect them to do something about it - is not their fault. But everyone is different sensitivity wise and how they think.

No blame. Just making them aware.
