As we reported Tuesday, Facebook, the social media site once described as the “world’s most dangerous censor,” yanked the page for “Warriors for Christ” without offering any real reason for the action. The page was restored, but it appears the company isn’t finished harassing the site and its owners.
On Thursday, the West Virginia-based organization said on its backup page that two of their administrators received a notification that day claiming the site removed something they posted. But, they said, NOTHING had been removed from the page.
A couple hours later, the group said Facebook deleted a live video that was streamed on Thursday.
Fortunately, they said, the video was streamed to both YouTube and Facebook.
Here’s the video Facebook deleted:
Pastor Rich Penkoski, owner of the site, further said in the video that Facebook is severely curtailing their reach — something that many conservatives have experienced since the November 2016 election.
While the main page is back up, Penkoski says he is still banned from posting due to the site’s profile picture of a warrior angel dressed in armor.
As a result of Facebook’s censorship, Penkoski started SocialCross, a social media site geared to Christians. That site now boasts over 12,000 users.
Writing about the situation with Warriors for Christ, the Washington Times’ Cheryl K. Chumley observed:
The Bible tells that those who stand with Jesus will face persecution, and that those who stand strong in the faith will receive their kudos from Christ. As for those who persecute?
Beware. A judgment day is coming.
We couldn’t agree more.
