A sermon delivered by Pastor John MacArthur has been labeled “hate speech” by YouTube.
MacArthur is pastor of Grace Community Church. His sermons are broadcast on hundreds of radio stations around the nation. He is a best-selling author and a beloved member of the evangelical community.
Pastor MacArthur delivered a message Sunday about Biblical sexuality – part of a nationwide campaign to draw attention to Canadian legislation that would silence pastors on LGBT issues.
Five years in prison for pastors who preach against the LGBT agenda.
So Pastor MacArthur encouraged pastors around the nation to stand in solidarity by preaching from their pulpits about biblical teachings regarding LGBT issues.
“There is no such thing as transgender. You are either XX or XY, that’s it. God made man male and female. That is determined genetically, that is physiology, that is science, that is reality,” MacArthur said from the pulpit.
“This notion that you are something other than your biology is a cultural construct intended as an assault on God. The only way you can address it, honestly, is to say, ‘God made you and God made you exactly the way He wanted you to be. You are not only fighting God in His physical creation, you are fighting God in His sovereignty. You are fighting God in His spiritual relationship to you,” he explained. “This is a war on God.”
MacArthur said they must be met with love and affirmation to be all God created them to be.
“On the one hand, the reality of that lie and deception is so damaging, so destructive, so isolating, so corrupting that it needs to be confronted, but on the other hand, that confrontation can’t exaggerate what already exists, which is a sense of feeling isolated in relationships.”
And it’s true.
But YouTube removed the clip and sent me a message saying the pastor’s sermon was hate speech.
“Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our hate speech policy,” YouTube wrote to me. “We’ve removed the following content from YouTube: ‘There is no such thing as transgender. You are either XX or XY. That’s it. – Pastor John MacArthur.'”
In other words, YouTube affirmed the Canadian law by banning any opposition to transgenderism on their platform.
And it won’t be very long before the sex and gender revolutionaries target the source of our beliefs – the Holy Bible. I foresee a day in American history where Bibles could be confiscated or rewritten to affirm the LGBTQIA lifestyle.
Jenna Ellis, special counsel for the Thomas More Society Special Counsel, successfully represented Pastor MacArthur with Los Angeles ordered his church to shut down during the pandemic. She condemned YouTube’s censorship of the pastor’s sermon.
“The big tech oligarchy in the United States is implementing the equivalent of Canada’s insane law by censoring truth and the right of pastors to teach the Bible,” she told me. “If Americans don’t stop big tech, this new Regime will circumvent the Constitution to foreclose our fundamental rights to speak and exercise religion and the impact will be devastating.
“I stand with John MacArthur and all pastors across the world who are simply standing firm and teaching biblical truth and I will continue to fight to protect the Church in America,” said Ellis who is now a Newsmax contributor.
Americans should be preparing for a time when pastors and religious leaders will face persecution for teaching the Word of God.
As I wrote in my book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” there’s a very real possibility that one day Democrats and their godless minions will imprison people like John MacArthur for doing what the Canadian pastors are doing — preaching the truth.
Regardless, as for me and my house, we stand with Pastor MacArthur.
