Another one bites the dust for One Million Moms.
Last week, the Christian group raised a fuss after it realized that two gay men were on the cover of Parents Magazine. The cover included fitness trainer Shaun T. (of Insanity fame), husband Scott Blokker, and their one-year-old twins Silas and Sander. The inside of the magazine also included an interview with the dads about surrogacy and fatherhood.
After catching wind of this magazine issue, One Million Moms organized a petition to express their outrage at the gay inclusivity.
“Parents is using its magazine as a platform to promote the pro-homosexual lifestyle. Even if families do not personally subscribe to the publication, they should be warned that it could be displayed in waiting rooms of dentist and doctor offices, where children could easily be subjected to the glorification of same-sex parents,” wrote the group.
Unfortunately, more than 10 thousand people signed that petition to express their disapproval. But fortunately, Faceboook isn’t having it.
According to On The Top Magazine, Facebook has removed the petition from its social media platform. As you can imagine, the organization is not happy.
“Facebook is trying to silence One Million Moms!” Monica Cole, the group's leader, said in an email to supporters. “Social media is a free resource we use to let our voice be heard and share our message, but Facebook is now censoring 1MM and Christian voices.”
“1MM can no longer rely on Facebook and other social media outlets to share our warnings and messages with others,” Cole added.
Cole says that the group has requested an appeal for Facebook’s decision. Hopefully, Facebook doesn’t listen.
