Facebook has announced it is banning posts from former homosexuals describing their personal faith-based journeys to a straight life.
The social media giant has adopted a policy banning any statement that promotes or discusses what is derisively known as “conversion therapy” in an online post.
Among other political victories, homosexual activists have denounced so-called “conversion therapy” and successfully lobbied sympathetic state legislatures to ban it on the grounds it harms homosexuals, especially teens, who are vulnerable to suicide and depression.
Anne Paulk, a former lesbian, tells OneNewsNow she and her ministry, Restored Hope Network, are a specific target of the Facebook policy.
It is no secret that ministries similar to Restored Hope have been rocked by Christian leaders who “came out” and denounced their own beliefs, but Paul says her ministry exists for people who want to change. She does not go looking for them.
“It’s people who actually seek out our help and we are happy to provide it,” she says, “because I personally experienced this in my own life.”
What the Facebook ban is accomplishing, Paulk says, is banning a person’s personal freedom to seek help and, in the end, that harms the Church.
“What they’re focusing on is removing the right for those who have unwanted same-sex attraction to get help and healing,” she says. “And so it does end up impacting the body of Christ and the gospel itself.”
