Facebook has been suspending accounts of some who speak against the transsexual agenda. On Jan. 26, Facebook suspended Robert Gagnon for a week for speaking against Joe Biden’s new transgender military policy, claiming that he violated Facebook’s “Community standards on violence and incitement.” Gagnon, author of The Bible and Homosexual Practice, responded, “There was absolutely no incitement to violence on our part. We abhor violence done to any person. This is just a thinly veiled and pathetic excuse for censorship of any critical views toward trans-tyranny over our consciences, religion, and reason. Only one point of view is being allowed. Trump was not the great danger to the Republic. Left-wing canceling is” (“Disagreeing with Biden’s Transgender Policy is ‘Incitement,’” PJMedia, Jan. 26, 2021). Pentecostal preacher/news commentator Michael Brown was locked out of Twitter for 12 hours on Jan. 20 for saying, “Will I get punished by Twitter for saying that, in God’s sight, ‘Rachel’ Levine (nominated by Biden to be his assistant secretary for HHS) is a man?” Apparently this came under Twitter’s ban on “hateful conduct.” Brown commented on the suspension, “When biological truth conflicts with transgender activism, biological truth is banned. When biblical truth conflicts with transgender activism, biblical truth is banned” (“Locked out by Twitter,” Townhall, Jan. 25, 2021).
