Now even the word 'Christian' is too hot for YouTube

Many expressions of Christian belief have been censored by YouTube, which is owned by Google.

But on Tuesday, even the word “Christian” ran afoul of the social-media giant.

Chad Robichaux reported an ad for his ministry to veterans was rejected for including the word “Christian.”

Robichaux was instructed to “please remove the unacceptable content to continue.”

Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars said it appears the world’s largest religion is a “dirty word to Silicon Valley.”

Robichaux explained: “We ran a @YouTube ad for our veterans ministry outreach for those in need & it was denied for the word ‘Christian.’ Insane! #Censorship should terrify every American, conservative or liberal, Christian or Muslim. This bias is a dangerous course for America.”

Suggested Watson, “Perhaps if Robichaux had used the term ‘Easter worshippers’ instead of Christian, his ad would have been accepted.”

The snarky comment was in response to Twitter messages from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and others referring to the victims of the terrorist bombing at an Easter service in Sri Lanka as “Easter worshippers.”

Columnist and talk-radio host Dennis Prager commented at the time: “Here’s what’s critical: Neither used the word ‘Christians.’ And in order to avoid doing so, they went so far as to make up a new term – ‘Easter worshippers’ – heretofore unknown to any Christian.”

Prager said that when Jews were murdered at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Clinton mentioned the synagogue in a tweet.

“But in her post-Sri Lanka tweet, despite the bombing of three churches filled with Christians, Clinton made no mention of church or churches. In a tweet after the massacre of Muslims in New Zealand, she wrote that her heart broke for ‘the global Muslim community.’ But in her latest tweet, not a word about Christians or the global Christian community.

“Obama similarly wrote in his tweet about New Zealand that he was grieving with ‘the Muslim community’ over the ‘horrible massacre in the Mosques.’ But in his tweet about Sri Lanka, there is no mention of Christians or churches,” he said.

“These two tweets tell you a lot about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. But far more importantly, they tell you a lot about the left.”
