A friend of my husband’s named Mike Kupari pointed out that it seems YouTube has taken down most of the Mormon Channel’s videos. I have no idea why. This was the media channel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. If you go to their website, you can find them there. This is where they shared their inspirational videos and messages. Mormon.org is still up, but The Mormon Channel seems to be gone. You may not be Mormon, but all of us should be alarmed by this.
A message came up, “This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.” I don’t get it at all. They did not deserve this in the least. As I understand it, this occurred around midnight last night. It was probably reported by a number of trolls and YouTube then banned them. A few of their videos are left but only a couple of them.
YouTube is a private company and has the right to remove whoever they see fit, but this is blatant censorship on their part. I don’t understand what the Mormons could have done to violate any of their policies. First, it was Alex Jones, now it’s the Mormons? What the heck is going on here? They will most likely walk this back and soon, calling it some kind of error, just like they did with the gun channels. But anyone who believes that is delusional. I warned last week that Alex Jones was only part of the beginning of all this. If you see the channel restored or an explanation on all this, please let us know.
We will keep you posted.
UPDATE: One video has come back online. Watch them restore this and say it was a glitch.
UPDATE II: It now looks like the channel has been restored. I sure would like to know why it was deleted in the first place.
