    Unless I've misunderstood our friend Ignatius, I believe the point was more along the lines of shouldn't both either be allowed to say such things or both be punished, rather than how it is now where only one is 'hate speech' or whatever, while the other is hilarious political satire to be enjoyed restriction-free? (Note: I know nothing of any of these people, since I don't have TV and don't watch political YouTube channels; I've heard the name Stephen Crowder before, but I assumed he was the internet version of a radio shock jock, and hence have avoided watching anything he has done, since I don't like that kind of thing.)

    Or envy speech, which is a form of hate. Or lustful speech. Or proud speech. Or lazy speech. Or any other of the Seven Deadly sins. We should probably ban pride rainbows, since pride is the most evil of all of them.

    We should also ban violent games and movies. Hate speech begets hate as much as violent speech begets violence. Sorry Avengers, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, you gotta go -- it's your fault we have school shootings.

    One more thing: anyone with a conscience knows the opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy. We should definitely treat insufficient caring speech ad AT LEAST as harmful as hate speech.

    If racists , sexists and homophobes wouldn’t verbally and emotionally abuse people under the guise of religion (or not.), this wouldn't be necessary . They also egg on stupid weak people to commit these abuses. I’m in favor of banning them because they just won’t live and let live

    You're straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel there. It wouldn't be a problem if we didn't permit violent speech like in movies and video games. Hate, wrath, envy all you want. Without the violence all problems become more manageable. We should ban movies, games, and books that depict violence because violent expression begets viilence. I'm sure we can agree on that.

    ... The “right wingers” I know oppose things like abortion and sexual immorality, are they driving us away from it’s true roots?

    I was unaware that a cardinal sin was dependant on the others to be valid.

    Either we have free speech and freedom of the press, or we have state controlled media. There is no way to force media to be unbiased.

    And you really suppose that the people at YouTube actually responsible for filtering content are concerned about Christians or the Christian worldview being misrepresented? Youtube is in fact currently demonetizing right-leaning content that should not be demonitized.

    Division between the truth and a lie is inherent in the Gospel message.

    The social media giants' foolishness in their ongoing biased censorship is stirring up interest in changing Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. They are too blind to understand that the public will only tolerate so much of their Left-leaning activism and abuse of power. Consider that you might be indirectly supporting such possible change by supporting Youtube's current censorship practices.

    I do think the public can do a better job of keeping the media honest, though. We should not support biased journalism. This requires significant cultural change but the Fourth Estate should serve without fear or favour.

    Yes, but American politics, conservative or otherwise, is not the Gospel. Ridiculing someone for their race/heritage is not part of the gospel. Encouraging harassment is not the gospel. I would say that mocking someone for their sin, whatever it is, is not part of the gospel. One's ability to make money from those pursuits has nothing to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ either (source).

    Yes the OP.

    The fact people are trying to spin the reality to the narrative that fits their persecution complex doesn't change the facts.

    No one is saying not to be the salt and light of the earth. Regardless of the level of moral decay our societies are in, we should remain diligent in our relationship with God and in following his word. Be careful about accusing others of being nihilists because of their views on the end times. My faith and ambition in Christ is not reliant upon the current or future state of the world. I'll not get into the rapture debate but regardless of you view on this, do you think the world will be in a state of this great awakening and then, POOF, everyone's following the Anti-Christ? No, the world must decline to that point over time. Using the great awakening during John Wesley's time is a perfect example actually. He lived in the 1700's. Compare that to today. Britain was somewhere in the lower 90% Christian already. The rest of Europe was probably somewhere around that. We had entire Christian continents and empires. Can you say that about today? A previous sitting U.S. President stated in front of the world that we are no longer a Christian nation. Members of our own congress have argued that Christians should not be able to hold public office because they say Muslims will go to Hell unless they accept Jesus as the Christ. Also, if you think Donald Trumps election is some sort of great awakening, it is, but to nationalism, not to Jesus. Being a conservative doesn't make you a Christian. Even if it did, Trump lost the popular vote, so America would STILL be less than have Christian. Again, I'm not promoting nihilism. It's a great time to go out and lay up treasure in Heaven by preaching and teaching the good news to a world in decline, but I'm not going to deny the world declining, and fast at that.
