OHIO – FEBRUARY 16, 2017 – Viral Activist Vlogger and mother of ten children, Elizabeth Johnston, also known as The Activist Mommy, is making headlines by lifting the veil on what she calls Facebook’s “censorship of Christians.”
The Activist Mommy, who has over 70 thousand followers and over 13 million video views, has been banned from Facebook three times for sharing what the Bible says about homosexuality. The post Facebook deleted this week included no name-calling, no threats, and no harassment. It was intellectual discussion and commentary on the Bible.
The Activist Mommy is asking Facebook to explain why the doctrine of tolerance only applies to those who subscribe to Mark Zuckerberg’s Silicon Valley leftist ideology.
“I am very appreciative of the platform Facebook gives us to promote family values,” Elizabeth sympathized. “If I were threatening people or posting slander, I could understand Facebook taking some type of action. But this is a classic case of censorship of Christians and our First Amendment rights to free speech.”

“I depend on Facebook to connect with my supporters,” stressed Elizabeth. “While Facebook has the right to set their own rules, they claim to be unbiased and thus should not be suppressing the comments and posts of conservatives and Christians who disagree with the views of their editors.”
In November of 2016, the Gizmodo controversy revealed the bias and manipulation of news trends by Facebook, which prompted the creation of new social media platforms such as Andrew Torba’s “Gab” which boasts the subtitle “Speak Freely” and already has a half million users.
“Our nation is divided. The American public disagrees vehemently on a countless number of issues. But do we want to live in a nation that suppresses freedom of speech and religious liberty?” questioned Elizabeth. “It is very disturbing that Facebook allows liberal trolls and bullies to silence the voices of Christians on social media through their ability to report posts they deem offensive. The First Amendment protects offensive speech.”
The Activist Mommy is asking concerned Facebook users to share this press release with the hashtag #FacebookCensorship.
