In Theory: Would an end to net neutrality stifle religious speech online?

[Commentary] Does the elimination of network neutrality threaten religious speech? Should Congress cement into law the right to equal access on the World Wide Web?

Yes, the elimination of net neutrality threatens religious speech. In particular I believe that Google is already using its corporate clout to stand against conservatives on issues of faith and morality, and the elimination of the regulations will only strengthen them to promote their biased agenda even further by eliminating access to websites that contradict it. No doubt other internet service providers will follow suit, especially if there’s a buck to be made. Yes, Congress should enforce the right to equal access on the World Wide Web. It’s become too essential to modern communication and commerce to let any company restrict or hinder access to it.
