When I was a kid, we would get up around 7 am on Sunday to go to church when we would visit my grandparents in North Carolina in the summer. 9 am we would be in church and by the time we were out of the church we would be sitting there figuring out what to put on our hotdogs for lunch.

We would go get lunch and settle down in the living room to watch whatever baseball game happened to be on television. We wouldn’t bother anyone, we’d just sit there and watch baseball.

I had no idea that things like this would be considered abhorrent behavior in the eyes of liberal social media.

It’s one of the reasons why I do not have any personal social media accounts because when you really think about it, why the heck do you care about the opinions of people you don’t know.

Attacks against free speech by big tech companies have quickly escalated into a full-blown censorship campaign as social media giants are now regularly targeting and silencing Christians and conservatives. Their latest target? Focus on the Family.

The Christian organization has just been censored by Twitter. The platform locked the global ministry’s “Daily Citizen” publication for allegedly violating their rules against posting “hateful” content. Focus on the Family CEO Jim Daly said this accusation is absolutely untrue.

The Daily Citizen tweeted a quote on Jan. 19 from one of its articles acknowledging that the Biden administration appointed a transgender woman to serve as Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of HHS.

The tweet read: “Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

Daly argued that the comment was simply defining what a transgender woman is and had nothing to do with Levine’s “trans” identification.

Twitter wrote in an email, “Hi The Daily Citizen, your account, @FocusCitizen has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against hateful conduct. You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Twitter urged the ministry to remove the tweet or appeal the decision. They challenged the move and sent a letter to the platform requesting an explanation for their action, Premier Christian News reports.
