My business has recently become a web hosting reseller. In addition to creating sites, we will also have customers signing up online and uploading their own web sites to our servers. As a business run by Christians, this could lead to some ethical issues.
We may end up hosting customer web sites that promote activities that we as Christians do not want to be associated with. My specific example is a stripogram service, but there will be other examples.
My first thought is that as a company we should not pick and choose our customers, nor dictate what is acceptable to place on web sites that we host. As long as the content isn’t illegal, we should not be involved. Unfortunately this argument does not hold up very well. In the case of the stripogram service, I do not want to earn money that has come from such behaviour. I could solve this problem by giving them the service for free – except that then I would be subsidising the service too.
