A group of LGBT activists has launched a petition asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take down a Christian mom's account on the social media because she regularly posts videos about her Christian beliefs on homosexuality, gender dysphoria, and other related topics.
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on June 8, Elizabeth Johnston, aka "The Activist Mommy," said she had already been banned from Facebook three times for sharing the Bible's teaching on homosexuality. She just recently found out about the LGBT activists' petition against her page.
"I've been banned three times from Facebook for just simply stating what the Bible says about homosexuality and just found out yesterday that a Change.org petition has been started to attempt to petition Mark Zuckerburg to delete my page from Facebook," Johnston told CBN in the interview.
Johnston's latest post about homosexuality has since gone viral with over 3.7 million views and thousands of shares and comments. In her recent video blog, the Activist Mommy talks about how the gender trend in the U.S. has gotten out of control to the point that the LGBT acronym has now become LGBTQQIAAPP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, allies, pansexual, and polysexual), The Christian Post detailed.
The Christian mom lamented that criticizing members of the LGBT community will result in accusations of being racist, homophobic, bigot, or misogynistic. She also said both Hollywood and the media are pressuring the public to celebrate homosexuality, and insisted that she is not caving in.
"No, I'm not going to celebrate your mental disorders," said Johnston in her vlog. "I'm not going to celebrate your sin. I'm not going to celebrate your departure from reality."
Earlier this year, Facebook suspended Johnston's account after she said the Bible condemns homosexuality, telling her that her post violated the social network's Community Standards. Johnston maintained that her post did not contain any form of threat, name-calling or harassment and was merely a discussion on the teaching of the Bible.
After widespread backlash, Facebook apologized to Johnston and reinstated her account. The Activist Mommy, on the other hand, continues to use her voice to boldly discuss the important issues facing Christians nowadays and encourages her co-believers to be as courageous in standing up for their faith.
