A pastor says, “Facebook is blocking almost everyone from seeing John 3:16, ‘The Old Rugged Cross,’ the resurrection of Jesus Christ and my other posts.” Pastor Steven Andrew has a sizeable audience, with 467,000 people liking his page. Yet, Facebook showed these posts to only hundreds of people each.
Andrew said, ‘I am being silenced by Facebook. Christianity is being silenced!”
“These posts are filled with God’s forgiveness and truth, which is the greatest message of love,” he said.
Andrew is called the “Facebook pastor” and spent thousands of dollars with Facebook advertising to build up the followers. Before the censoring, he reached 5 to 8 million people per month, with an average post going to 30,000 to 60,000 people. Some posts reached a million people. However, after Facebook said they were cracking down on fake news in 2016, they shadowbanned Andrew, blocking about 5 million people per month.
“Christianity is not fake news,” he said.
Andrew contacted Facebook about the censoring earlier, but they did nothing. He also requested Facebook remove the fake accounts impersonating him that scam his followers for money, but Facebook refused. There are over 70 impersonating accounts.
Andrew said, “Facebook caused the loss of millions of dollars in donations and the ability to grow my website traffic.”
Because of this Andrew is building a new social network called USA.Life so people can share freely about life, liberty and happiness. “There is no censoring of Christianity and our American rights at USA.Life,” he said. Andrew is a Silicon Valley internet leader, who has run multi-million dollar Fortune 500 initiatives.
“People are signing up as soon as they hear about www.USA.Life,” he said.
Andrew set up a crowdfunding page to fund the new project, which is expected to launch this fall.
“Freedom and privacy could be lost forever without USA.Life. However, we can save the Internet if 62,000 people give $10, or if 6,200 people give $100. If Christians want to share freely, it is at USA.Life,” Andrew said.
