Facebook, other new media censor Christian viewpoints
October 03, 2011
A report recently issued by the National Religious Broadcasters has found that Facebook, Apple iTunes, and other new media platforms censor Christian viewpoints, particularly about homosexuality.
“Of the 425,000 apps available on Apple’s iPhone, the only ones censored by Apple for expressing otherwise lawful viewpoints have been apps with Christian content,” the report found. “Facebook has partnered with gay rights advocates to halt content on its social networking site deemed to be ‘anti-homosexual,’ and it is participating in gay-awareness programs, all of which suggest that Christian content critical of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, or similar practices will be at risk of censorship.”
