Apple, Google, Facebook Censoring Christian Speech
We have commented before on Apple’s decisions to remove the Manhattan Declaration and Exodus International from its App Store. Now The Christian Post has published a story about similar actions by Google, AT&T, Comcast and Facebook. (See the link above.)
The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) has taken the issue to the National Press Club with a written report, outlining several recent anti-Christian incidents.
One example cited is Google, which “initially prohibited the English Christian Institute from purchasing space for an advertisement about abortion. It also allegedly blocked a Massachusetts pro-family website because of its conservative Christian content. Google also has also excluded churches and other faith groups from free or discounted use of its web tool Google for nonprofits.”
The NRB has stated that they may pursue legal remedies with the FCC if these organisations continue to censor Christian speech. (We posted a story on the legal basis for such an action, here.) In the growing climate of confusion and misunderstanding about “tolerance,” which has come to mean tolerating those with whom one agrees while attempting to silence those of other viewpoints, we believe such an action would be good for America.
