After Receiving a Scathing Letter From Senators, Facebook Doubles Down on Anti-Christian Censorship
Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Braun issued a scathing letter to Facebook on Wednesday, calling them out for their anti-Christian censorship against the pro-life activists at LiveAction.
“Your company, like Twitter, Google, Pinterest and so many of the other major social media firms in Silicon Valley, has repeatedly been presented with evidence of bias against those with conservative viewpoints, especially on the issue of abortion,” states the letter, which is addressed to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The Senators and the primary victim of Facebook’s censorship campaign, Live Action President Lila Rose, demanded that the social media provider reverse their arbitrary distinction of “fake news” and issue an apology.
“The platform should be a place for the free exchange of ideas, not one where only pro-abortion arguments are allowed. Live Action has asked Facebook to rectify this situation by rescinding their fact-check, sending a new notification to all users about the change, and apologizing, as well as reforming their “fact-check” process,” Rose wrote.
However, Facebook has done the exact opposite of the responsible thing to do. They are thumbing their noses at the federal government, and doubling down on their censorship campaign against LiveAction and by extension the pro-life community.

Previously, LiveAction received a demerit from the Big Tech monopoly platform despite the fact that they accurately reported on the Dublin Declaration, a document signed by over 1,000 OB-GYNs, doctors and other healthcare experts proclaiming that abortion is never a medically necessary procedure.
Big League Politics has also had problems with the biased fact checking system used by Facebook to restrict independent content on their platform. We received a demerit for writing a factually correct article about camera malfunctions that prevented footage of Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide from being seen by investigators. Even after our report was vindicated weeks later by the mainstream media, the fact checker – a former CNN hack – refused to admit fault and rescind the “fake news” designation.
The bias at Facebook is out of control, and Sen. Hawley, who signed onto the letter, has introduced legislation to cut them and the rest of the Silicon Valley monopolies down to size before they can enact Big Brother.
“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship. Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain,” Hawley said in a statement about his “Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act.”
“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”
It has become clear that Facebook and other villainous Big Tech entities will not change their abusive business practices unless they are forced to do so, as their bigoted hostility toward Christians becomes personal.
