Nearly Arrested Elish Elijah Amos Thiel is using the tragedy in Orlando as a warning that his church will soon be persecuted. How he arrives at that silliness is because he is upset that several Facebook pages and Twitter accounts have been shut down over the last few days because of their content, in regards to Orlando and Muslims.
Amos Thiel feels that he too will be persecuted for speaking boldly about all kinds of topics in the very near future.
Here are some of Facebook’s policies from its Community Standard’s pages:We remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety. …People use Facebook to share their experiences and to raise awareness about issues that are important to them. This means that you may encounter opinions that are different from yours, which we believe can lead to important conversations about difficult topics. To help balance the needs, safety, and interests of a diverse community, however, we may remove certain kinds of sensitive content or limit the audience that sees it.
While the above may seem reasonable to many, the reality is that internet censorship is a real threat as how the above is interpreted can lead to inappropriate censorship. Can you see how telling the truth about other religions and even proclaiming the solution to the world’s problems is the Kingdom of God could be a ‘violation’ of Facebook’s ‘community standards’?
Well, we in the Continuing Church of God can.
This censorship issue is so serious that we in the Continuing Church of God decided, because of a YouTube censorship incident last year (in which we ultimately won), to come up with an alternative to YouTube if we were faced with its censorship.
The USA no longer has the type of ‘freedom of religion’ or ‘freedom of speech’ its founders envisioned. And while neither Facebook or YouTube are part of the government of the USA, they do not support the agenda or the morality of the Bible.
The time will come when the USA, and likely some private companies, will apparently stop the efforts of websites like this one. As well as our numerous video channels on the internet.
