Catholic YouTube

Here’s another niche YouTube clone, this one a a Catholic alternative called A previous entry was the Christian, but not necessarily Catholic, GodTube.

There seems to be a variety of videos up, ranging from talking heads to music videos to captures off the TV. And they all seem to be loaded by the one user, who I presume is the site’s owner seeding the library. Only time will tell if success will drive a wider variety of videos, including homemade videos, to the site.

I’ll be curious to see how this develops and how stringent their control over the content will be. I presume they’ll take down any spam or obscene material, but what about material that expresses opinions that dissent from the teachings of the Church? On other end of the spectrum, what about videos like the recent one that showed Archbishop Niederauer giving Communion to some blaspheming gay activists? It will be very interesting to see how they walk that line.
