Pinterest Categorizes Pro-Life Messages with Pornography: Free Speech Too Risky

Pro life movement is too dangerous for Pinterest

Recently I received an email from Live Action, a fantastic pro-life website I subscribe to, that informs the public about the atrocities of abortion. This newsletter included a video link that shocked me.

A former employee of social media giant, Pinterest, divulged the horrific truth that Live Action and other Christian sites are being systematically removed and stifled. New posts are prevented from seeing the light of day because Pinterest administrators place posts by Live Action on a blocked list reserved for pornography or conspiracy theories.

Why is this happening? According to Pinterest, the ideas are just far too damaging to people. In order to protect the undiscerning public, unapproved thoughts must be filtered out. Pinterest’s behavior is patronizing and disgusting, possibly diabolical. North Korea or George Orwell’s 1984 should be coming to mind right about now.

As a Christian blogger, Pinterest’s behavior is hair-raising. It makes me wonder when Christian doctrine will be banned from the internet. What if WordPress decides that Christianity is inappropriate and starts shutting down our blogs? I encourage you to set aside 20 minutes and watch the video. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

  1. I believe that WP is already starting to do this. I have so much trouble reblogging and replying that I sometimes feel frustrated. So sad. Satan is working furiously.:(

  2. Unfortunately, this is not at all surprising to me. The world we live in is downright infatuated with evil.
    May we continue to shine like stars (Philippians 2:15) amidst the dark depravity!

      1. Yes. I must agree with you there. It is discouraging to see us slipping further and further away from truth, goodness and beauty.
        I’m grateful that God remains steadfast, though!

  3. Wow, this doesn’t bode well for free speech- but is also damaging for opening up any dialogue or debate (I feel like I almost imagined a time when people actually debated the issue- but now it seems like there’s only one acceptable view). Systematically shutting down one side of the debate won’t make it go away or prove it wrong- if nothing else, this is a downright stupid move.

    1. No, it doesn’t bode well for free speech. I’m surprised at the inability of people to have conversations about any topic without it devolving into name calling. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  4. Unbelievable that this right is slowly being taken away. I have been reading a lot about how much influence the government and liberalism has on our young generation. Social media definitely has an agenda, as does the school systems and it is affecting younger and younger children in our schools. Gender, marriages, religion (and the list goes on) are all being re-defined. It is sickening to see it happening.

    The ‘Christian’ word is being blocked also. Say what? Saying it is sensitive?

    We are being totally brainwashed and desensitized. And accountability… what is that anymore?

    While in my reading and listening to some wonderful Christian podcasts, I am learning that I, and we all, need to start sending letters out. Get off the bench and stand up for our rights and beliefs. The Bible warns us of these things and we are supposed to be a light. It is hard in todays world because this is what sadly, defines us as the bigots, “pushing” our beliefs on others.

    So the end of the video of the link says that it isn’t blocked any longer since they reached out, is that still the case. Thanks for the post and information by the way. Knowledge is key.

    1. I agree. While Christians still have the means to contest censorship of our faith we should. Social media has an agenda and they most definitely are brainwashing unaware people with repeated messaging that Christianity is “dangerous”.

      I don’t use Pinterest, so I’m not sure if the links have been fixed and remain so.

      I had to pass this video along, I was stunned when I saw it. Glad it made an impact. God bless! 🙂
