The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) released a report today which shows proof that social websites are censoring Christian conservative speech. The study found that any speech critical of the gay rights agenda is being stripped from Facebook, MySpace, Google, and Apple, according to Craig Parshall of the NRB. I know this to be true from personal experience.
However accurate the study is, they didn’t mention that even websites that are supposed to be Christian are also censoring Christian conservative speech. For instance, the Christian Post regularly drops comments of Christians who speak out against Obama’s policies or gay rights or Darwinism. How do I know? Because they’ve done it to me several times. The Christian Post uses Facebook for its comments. I have left reasoned, factual arguments highlighting the weaknesses of Darwinism, the harmful effects of the homosexual lifestyle, and the bad socialist policies of the Obama administration. All of them were sound and effective arguments against the barrage of comments left by atheists or gay rights activists and all of them were deleted.
In one comment I left, I replied to two gay rights activists who made comments stating that our Democracy was now owned by the gay rights movement and Christians should no longer be part of the conversation or in the public arena. My reply basically stated that they were proof of the ultimate goal of the gay rights movement, which is to violate the Constitutional right to free speech of Christians. I went on to state that Christians have always been part of the public forum in the U.S. going all the way back to when we were British colonies and the Constitution was applicable to everyone, including Christians who disagree with the gay rights movement.
So after noticing that my comments were deleted, I sent an email to the editorial staff of the Christian Post and never received a response. So the only logical conclusion I can reach is that the Christian Post and other so-called Christian websites who do the same are complicit in trying to silence many Christians who can give a reasoned factual refutation of ungodly worldviews. They gladly accept comments of those who give Christian opinions based on “feelings” and comments that can easily be torn down by those opposed to Christians. So I’ve found the Christian Post to be disingenuous at best.
The NRB’s study found that Twitter was the only site to allow genuine free speech to all views, including Christians.
