Stellpflug, a retired cancer nutritionist with a pastoral career who now teaches Bible study and Sunday school at Sunrise Baptist Church in Custer, Washington, told The Christian Post in an interview that he received an email response from Twitter on July 3 telling him that his tweet "has not been approved for use in your Twitter Ads campaign."
The tweet in question states: "One Man One Woman is about God's original design for marriage carried from Adam and Eve in the garden through today." The tweet also includes a photo of the book and a link to the WestBow Press online bookstore.
The July 3 email that Twitter sent to Stellpflug, which was shared with The Christian Post, explained that the tweet violated Twitter's ad policy.
"This determination is based on the following Twitter Ads policy: Hate," Twitter's email to the pastor reads....
"Confusion regarding gender, sexuality, masculinity, and femininity is rampant in our Western culture. But our God is â€śnot the author of confusion but of peaceâ€ť (1Cor 14:33), and He has â€śgiven to us all things that pertain to life and godlinessâ€ť (2 Pet 1:3). He has not left us wondering about something as basic as our identity as male and female.
When we follow our culture, confusion results. As this issue of National Geographic clearly shows, gender roles and even the concept of gender itself are radically different across cultures and generations. Here in the West, what is accepted now, for better or worse, was hardly fathomable to previous generations. But Godâ€™s Word provides us with answers that donâ€™t change with the culture.
Created Male and Female Scripture is plain that we, as male and female, were created with distinctions:
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them (Gen 1:27).
Our culture is trying to erase, ignore, or downplay the differences between male and female. They would have us believe men and women are basically the same, an opinion not supported by science. But the Bible is clear: God created two genders, male and female." (answersingenesis)
Ok twitter, then how come you're not banning the President's tweets banning transgender people from serving in the military? Wouldn't that be "hate" speech? It's the Christian source that Twitter is going after seeing that the author is an outspoken Christian author.
May the Lord rebuke those atheists and satanic Liberals who manage policy of "Twitter" - They must be real twits.
Jude :7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities." V9 ...... but said, The Lord rebuke thee."
This is not the first time that Twitter has been accused of rejecting an ad campaign promoting a social conservative value. In June, it was reported that Twitter is not allowing pro-life organizations like Live Action and the Susan B. Anthony List to procure ads that warn against abortion, show unborn baby ultrasounds and fact-check claims from the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood -- "My book is not hate! It highlights conservative Christian marriage values â€” therefore it is 'hate.' Have we stooped so low in our country that my freedom of speech is squelched because I promote my Christian beliefs? I'll tell you where the hate is. It is flaunted against the majority by the few as a tool to promote liberal agendas."
Another topic the book touches on is the use of everyday chemicals that cause hormone disruption. Stellpflug argues that use of such chemicals is causing a "hormonal evolution."
"The fact is we are helping cause the hormonal evolution of our species at breakneck speed because of the everyday use of powerful hormone disruptors," the book states. "Add to this the societal shift of acceptance and even an encouragement toward homosexual exploration and the simple hormonal evolution expands to include sexual revolution -- So?hate his speech?
