GoogleTube’s double standard

GoogleTube’s double standard

When an atheist commentator was posting videos to YouTube disputing Christianity, that was just fine by the Google-owned company.

But he started posting similar videos about Islam, that was when the stuff hit the fan.

[Nick] Gisburne had been posting videos with logical arguments against Christian beliefs; but when he turned his attention to Islam (mirror of Gisburne’s video by another user), YouTube pulled the plug, saying: ‘After being flagged by members of the YouTube community, and reviewed by YouTube staff, the video below has been removed due to its inappropriate nature. Due to your repeated attempts to upload inappropriate videos, your account now been permanently disabled, and your videos have been taken down.’

Google is a private company, not the government, so it’s not illegal for them to censor contributors. However, the public can and should hold them accountable for unfairness and arbitrary standards.

Apparently Christians are fair game because there aren’t any Christian terrorists beheading people and blowing stuff up, nor do they riot in the streets and burn in effigy and have death threats issued by their religious leaders.
