Army combat veteran turned podcaster and vlogger Graham Allen says Facebook banned a recent post of his which slammed critics of President Donald Trump’s prayer photo-op at McLean Bible Church.
The conservative speaker, who now has a program called “Rant Nation” on Blaze TV, has garnered an audience by sharing his “rants” on a wide range of issues. After addressing the controversy over Pastor David Platt praying for President Donald Trump after Trump unexpectedly showed up at a June 2 worship service, Facebook labeled his comments “Hate Speech.”
“I’m known for being kind of blunt in my videos,” Allen told CBN after the social media platform banned his video this month. “It’s interesting that this video caught so much attention because it was a very low-key video. I just felt the need to address the hypocrisy of Christians being upset for praying for our leader in America, whether you agree with him.”
He added, “The video was pretty much just if you believe that Donald Trump is this horrible, racist, bigoted person, isn’t that the type of person that you should want to pray for?”
The video was titled, “Real Christians Pray For Everyone,” and criticized members of McLean Bible Church who reportedly felt hurt by Pastor David Platt’s decision to invite President Trump on stage during the worship service to pray for him.
In Allen’s video, which is still available on Allen’s Instagram account, he says in part, “Now this pastor who prayed for our president has come under fire because apparently Christians [holds up finger quotes] within the congregation are horrified that he would pray for the president. What kind of hypocritical low-life non-Christian having, whoah, Lord Jesus, help me … Christians, ha! Make me sick, man. What kind of Christian would get upset for praying?”
While Allen used demeaning language in the video regarding members of McLean Bible Church, he told CBN that he was only calling for praying for Trump.
