YouTube Bans “COVID Is Judgment For Sinning” Clip

The Christian Post reports:

“This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” reads a message on the now blocked audiobook video by theologian John Piper, the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minnesota and the founder of The video got over 187,000 views within roughly five weeks that it remained on the platform. It was released on April 8 and blocked on Friday.

The censorship came amid a call by 22 military chaplains to “discipline” and possibly court-martial a senior army chaplain for sending nearly three-dozen other chaplains an email containing a copy of the e-book, Coronavirus and Christ. The 22 military chaplains, some of whom are from the LGBT community, had a problem with the book because it says that “some people will be infected with the coronavirus as a specific judgment from God because of their sinful attitudes and actions.”
