As for Gagnon’s “hate speech” posts, they involve a philosophical disagreement with LGBT pride. The most recent involved Gagnon’s response to the upcoming Revoice Conference, a meeting in St. Louis, Mo. focused on “supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.”
(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) On Saturday, Robert A. J. Gagnon, a prominent Christian scholar on the topic of Bible sexuality, spoke out about being blocked on Facebook for a second time. Both times, he posted about how LGBT activism pushes sexual perversion, as defined by the Bible. Both times, he was blocked on Facebook for “hate speech.” He spoke with PJ Media about the overarching issue: redefining “hate” to silence conservative views on sexuality.
“The greatest threat to our free speech and free exercise of religion comes from zealous advocates of the ‘LGBTQ’ agenda who appear to rule FB, Google, and Amazon,” Gagnon told PJ Media Saturday.
Gagnon, who holds a Ph.D. in Pauline theology and sexuality from Princeton Theological Seminary, has published “The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics.” As his church, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has moved toward the LGBT side, Gagnon split with Pittsburgh Theological Seminary — where he was an associate professor of New Testament for 23 years — last September.
Gagnon was put in “Facebook jail” on Friday evening in what he described as “my second 24-hour ‘hate speech’ block.” While Facebook said it would block him for 24 hours, the block lasted about 15. This followed a previous block on June 14 that lasted 23 hours before being rescinded.
