Notorious anti-LGBT activist Michael Brown is EVER so pissed that the content-sharing platform Vimeo is apparently rejecting all submissions that support ex-gay torture. Today he screeches in a post for the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow:
If Jesus has changed your life and set you free from homosexual practice, your testimony is not welcome on Vimeo – not now, not ever. And if you see homosexuality as another aspect of sexual brokenness, something for which Jesus died and something from which you can be healed, your opinion is not welcome on Vimeo. Case closed, door shut, end of subject. In the words of Dr. David Kyle Foster, director of Pure Passion Ministries and himself a former homosexual, “This is pure religious bigotry and censorship.” [snip]
By this logic, Alcoholics Anonymous would not be welcome on Vimeo, since their videos demean alcoholism; or weight loss videos would not be welcome, because they shame the overweight; or testimonies of Christian converts from Islam would not be welcome, because they shame Muslims. In reality, all these videos are welcome on Vimeo, because none of them cross the forbidden line of saying: If you’re not happy being gay (or bisexual or transgender), God has a better way.
You can see why Foster described this as “pure religious bigotry and censorship.” Vimeo is forbidding you from agreeing with the Bible when it comes to human sin and brokenness. Vimeo is forbidding you from preaching the gospel of transformation when it comes to homosexuality. Vimeo is engaging in blatant, unapologetic, aggressive anti-Christian censorship.
According to Brown, a Vimeo moderator sent this message:
Your statement equating homosexuality to “sexual brokenness” betrays the underlying stance of your organization. To put it plainly, we don’t believe that homosexuality requires a cure and we don’t allow videos on our platform that espouse this point of view. Please remove any and all videos that discuss homosexuality as a condition requiring healing. We also consider this basic viewpoint to display a demeaning attitude toward a specific group, which is something that we do not allow.
Brown is calling on his followers to deluge Vimeo with complaints. I recommend that you THANK them for protecting the lives of LGBT youth by using Brown’s link above or via their Twitter account.
