YouTube censors video of pro-marriage group harassed at Brown U.


Kathleen Gilbert at LifeSiteNews:

A conservative group demonstrating support for traditional marriage met with violent opposition in Rhode Island last week.

Volunteers from the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) visited Brown University during their statewide tour for traditional marriage in Rhode Island on March 23. While peacefully demonstrating on the Ivy League campus, their pro-family banner was vandalized and a volunteer was spat upon in the face.

“What we faced at Brown University, an Ivy League university, had the flavor of a religious persecution,” said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. “Dozens of pro-homosexual students screamed, spat, taunted, and even attempted to destroy our traditional marriage banner.”

... Days after the videotaped incident was posted on YouTube, the video sharing website pulled down the footage, leaving a message stating: “This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

Youtube ... which is owned by Google Inc., has consistently declined to provide explanations for why such videos were removed.

    There are other video sharing formats on the web as well as multiple pro-family web pages with there own video sharing & viewing software.

    Could NOM or another group not post this video if they could obtain it?

    I for one would like to see it.

    So not only does the promotion of gay marriage cause government intrusion and coersion, but cencorship as well. Nice.

    Their movement consistently demonstrates hate and a close-minded, secular absolutism with a fundamentalist fervor. Not the kind of people you want running a pluralistic society.

    The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. It's obvious to see where the true hatred and bigotry lies.

    It's sample:
    a) post the video on NOM website;
    b) download the video;
    c) post the video on youtube and forward it to your friends asking them to do point c) again (recursively...!).

    btw... there was an article today how the ceo of google asked to have his campaign donations taken off google. funny coincidence that he donated to obama...? I guess google, youtube, other liberal controlled media mediums will conform to the left.
