Facebook shut down a Christian ministry’s page without explanation
Facebook has removed the page of Restored Hope Network, a Christian ministry that helps those with unwanted sexual attractions and gender confusion. While no explanation was given as to why the page was taken down, the ministry believes the social media giant's move is part of ongoing efforts in support of government prohibitions on the practice of what some refer to as "conversion therapy."
“It is a deliberately and misleadingly provocative term coined by the LGBTQ activist community that does not describe any type of actual counselling assistance offered to men and women who struggle with same-sex attraction,” explained Anne Paulk, executive director of Restored Hope Network, in a statement sent to The Christian Post on Thursday.
“Facebook is deciding they have the authority to silence the stories of those of us whose lives have changed,” she continued.
“Their dismissive action — canceling our page as if it never existed, leaving a vague ‘the link may be broken’ message in its place — is shameful. Not even extending us the courtesy of a notification, a chance to offer our side of the very politicised story, is unconscionable.”
“We existed before Facebook was ever around, we’ll exist after Facebook is around because we belong to the Most High God,” Paulk concluded.
