Facebook's Anti-Conservative Bias: Christian Homeschool Mom's Account Suspended Over Posts Citing Bible
Homeschool mom and self-proclaimed "Activist Vlogger," Elizabeth Johnston and the Facebook censorship team haven't been seeing eye to eye. Johnston claims that Facebook closed her account over anti-homosexual comments she had made in previous months.
Johnston's comment was in response to an atheist who mocked Christians for condemning homosexuality but readily ate forbidden biblical foods like shellfish and pork. Johnston left this comment over half a year ago.
The post was deleted on February 9th, and Johnston’s large Facebook page, The Activist Mommy, with over 70,000 likes, was temporarily suspended. Facebook notified The Activist Mommy that her comments on homosexuality breached Facebook Community standards.
“I responded with just scriptural commentary and that is considered ‘hate speech’ by Facebook. It was just very intellectual and it was just a commentary on what the Bible says. There was no name calling or anything like that.”
Johnston was absolutely unashamed and unwavering in her belief. Once her Facebook page was unsuspended, she re-posted the same biblical anti-homosexual commentary. Unsurprisingly, Facebook removed the comment and froze her account for seven days.
“Last Sunday, I posted something about the ban, explaining to my followers where I had been the last three days and reposted the screenshot and wrote #FacebookCensorship. That ticked them off and they didn’t like that at all. It was going viral. Just within a few hours, they had banned me again and they were going to make it more painful.”
Over and over again, Facebook has shown bias against conservative Christian viewpoints. Facebook employees have admitted to "routinely" suppressing conservative news.
"Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending," said a former curator who was one of very few conservatives on staff. "I'd come on shift and I'd discover that CPAC or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or popular conservative topics wouldn't be trending because either the curator didn't recognize the news topic or it was like they had a bias against Ted Cruz." added the individual.

Most likely, Johnston's post was lumped into the category of “hate speech,” although Facebook has not released a clear statement.
Raise awareness for Johnston by sharing this.

No surprises here. None at all. Reddit has been making mistakes in their censoring too. Most of the internet is censored and we don't even realize it.
The neuroscientists and geneticists are slowly starting to catch up to the ancient wisdom that men wrote down in the Bible with quill and ink over thirty-five hundred years ago, and they're finding out that indeed, something is genetically and detrimentally mutated with the genetic code of a man who is sexually attracted to other men. And to a lesser extent the woman who is sexually attracted to other women.
Homosexuals are people and deserve all the same rights as Heterosexuals. The presumption that the big problem in the world is that Men can't marry other men being "The big problem" is missing the mark. Deep down Homosexual men know that something is wrong, but they can't put their finger on it, so they're lashing out to other aspects of reality they can control that point out its wrongness. The gay man feels wrong, because it gets reminded of it all day every day, he knows something is amiss, so he asks why? And he looks and says: Aha! Those meddlesome Christians and their Man-Woman nuclear family! That was the problem all along! No, it wasn't the problem at all, and when that gay man get what he wants, total equality in Men in creating a "Nuclear family" with another man (what does that even mean?) then that deep-seated feeling that something is wrong will still be there. You didn't solve the problem, you simply changed others perceptions of your behavior. He will find something else that points out his wrongness and try to get that eliminated as well. But the problem is, you can only go so far, you can't eliminate the science and the facts. Eventually you will be in a position where it's not people calling you defective, it's reality itself calling you broken. You'll rail against reality, but you will fail, because you will be like a man with a blue shirt on that insists people believe he has a red shirt on. His delusion is tiresome and an indulgence.
I predict that when Men marry other men becomes so commonplace nobody even cares, the scapegoat of the problem will have to find some other release point because the problem is still there. Maybe it'll be something along the lines of restricting the rights of the Man and woman nuclear family from presenting themselves in public and having children because obviously, those children are pointing out some problem in the gay family, and that's not okay. The reason there is a problem will shift.
Of course, the problem won't ever be solved until you address the facts of the matter and address that Evolution fucked up, you're a mutant and it's damaged one of the most important components of life, and you're less likely to procreate. While it sucks, it's a necessary part of evolution by natural selection. Evolution is trying something new, and it failed on you. And now you have to either try to technologically correct it, resign yourself to your fate, or try to suppress it by yourself.
The problem automatically self-corrects though, because men who marry other men tend to go childless, and in an advanced civilization, they provide goods and services where mothers and fathers would be putting that energy into offspring. So men who form so-called "nuclear families" with other men are missing the mark, but at least they're removing themselves from the gene pool and evolution by natural selection gets things back on track, slowly. That is, until we perfect cloning the mutants. In which case Gay men are the future of civilization, sexual desire is useless baggage if we can just replicate ourselves and intelligently design our DNA.
So all this rabble rousing and argumentativeness will be totally moot in another few hundred years. The future of the species is intelligent design, designer babies, specialized abilities. Enhanced cranial regions for the intelligent, increased number of limbs and upper body strength for the construction workers etc., etc.
Mother of 10?! Please stop procreating.
Facebook has the legal right to suspend ANY page or account if they choose. No matter how big or small. No evidence needed. Nada.
SO even if they did, I don't care. Mike, this really wasn't worth re-hashing on here. Maybe you wanted to, but seriously... come on.... Corporations have a right to decide whether they will allow certain types of opinions and beliefs free reign. It's the government that doesn't.
