YouTube pulls plug on Christian videos


www.wnd.com

The author of a soon-to-be-released book on Christian apologetics, “The Magic Man in the Sky: Effectively Defending the Christian Faith,” is questioning the motives behind the termination of the immensely popular PPSimmons Ministry account on YouTube.

Where once one of the more popular God and Country YouTube Channels – with more than 23,000 subscribers, 530-plus videos and 21 million views – could be accessed, now a barren page is found, save for a message. The message reads: “This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or

I used to peruse this guy's site every now and again, and I was very surprised today to read that YouTube had terminated it. It was, without a doubt, extreme, but also extremely interesting.

He always seemed to come at things from a very non-chalant viewpoint, always including disclaimers that what he was finding was most likely coincidence that deserved attention, but the findings themselves were damned interesting!

In one, he discerns that Christ identified Satan as "lighting from the heavens" (it's a direct verse from the Bible in which God says that Satan fell as lightning from the heavens). He then goes back to the original Hebrew, all documented, and translates the phrase 'lightning from heaven', and guess how it translates...Barack O'Bama.

Calling that # Christian is something only extremists and the assholes at WND would do.

well, hopefully this is the beginning of the forced dechristianization of America. it's about time we really drove home the whole separation of church and state!

but really, you don't see anything wrong with religious fundamentalists calling our president "SATAN." what do you think most "christians" would want to do to "Satan?" the worst i ever said about bush was that he was a mass murdering war criminal, but SATAN?! come one, gotta draw the line somewhere.

This is a good idea. Seperate the religion from the government. They Put too much power in religious people's hands.

Actually, YouTube pulled a single account that happened to post Christian videos. There are still plenty of Christian and other religious videos to be found on their servers. If the account holder continuously sought to go against YouTube's Terms of Service, then it's his own fault that his account was terminated.

I think you're missing the point here. Firstly, he never called the president Satan, he made a startling discovery relating scripture to the original Hebrew, and in doing so said that it doesn't mean anything, but should just be seen as a tremendous coincidence. However, you don't get to choose what does or does not constitute free speech. Remember the old patriotic line, "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." C'mon, where did we lose that?!

You know, I post things on here sometimes that I don't agree with. I'm not taking a position when I do, I simply find the topic to be interesing, and I'm trying to raise a forum for people to talk, debate, discuss, speculate, imagine, and yes...HAVE FUN! Don't you think ATS is fun? I do. I enjoy the hell out of it. It's not for another to tell me I can't discuss the things I want, to infringe on that liberty.

In other words, the thousands of videos with gross infringements upon the Community Guidelines, videos of death, sex, nudity in a non-artistic fashion, racism, and what others may consider "offensive material" is quite alright to leave on Youtube (one video I saw not only included graphic sexual activity, but also buckets of gore, and had almost two million views).

I personally am not offended by any of this, at all. I only ever report the really, really bad stuff. But this is, in my opinion, very questionable. Taking down a Christian channel for breaking Community Guidelines (which are curiously not specified) while leaving the oodles of pornographic material raises my brow.

Now, if all Christian channels were removed, then you would have a valid argument. But that is not the case.

I still like my YouTube alternative idea.

We need to give it a catchy name.

Hmmm.......

About time people need to stop with the religious talk and move on to stuff that involves the current times.

I used to run a forum and we wouldn't allow any religious talk on it, you know why because it just creates arguments.

Free speech it isn't free speech its preaching, forcing something they have no proof happened.

Its would be like me running around trying to force everyone to believe in M-Theory, Because in the end religion is just a theory.

Sorry if you don't agree but thats my opinion.

The number of hits a channel may have is neither here or there. If the account holder purposely defied their user agreement with YouTube or disregarded their requests for compliance, then the fault is on him -- not the site for the shut down.

YouTube is a privately owned company, is it not?

we don't force people to believe in science theories, people explain them and theorize on them, its whether your mind can believe them or not, because like I said its just a theory.
nothing against the M-theory or any other science theories.

YouTube doesn't have to adhere to the whole "free speech" thing. They aren't a government, they are a website with their own policy. They can ban whoever they want for whatever reason without owing anybody an explanation.
