Stressed over December 25th?

Fun fact: celebrating Christmas is a wonderful tradition, but is not a biblical requirement:


'One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.

The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord ... while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God ...

the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

-Romans 14:5ff

A Selected History of Twitter Censoring

InterChurch News

from the Marketplace of Ideas

In 2020, Twitter censored a reasonable observational tweet from InterChurch News, yet continued to oblige a Shaun King tweet inciting Black Lives Matter supporters to commit hate crimes and tear down statues of Jesus -- associated with church properties -- which according to King, are a form of white supremacy:

Twitter censored 'Mueller Report' conclusion favorable to Trump ... 


Tweeting texts favorable to president Trump in the 'Mueller Report' were also censored prior to election:




Mueller Report



The book excerpts tweeted were attributed facts from the 'Mueller Report' -- fair and favorable to president Trump prior to the 2020 election. 




When Twitter users put words 'election fraud' together, Twitter censored. Yet, for four years, Twitter was the platform for false accusations against president Trump and his 2016 win fueling the Mueller investigation and two lynch mob-like House-only impeachments.


Stop the Steal



Legal Standing


When the US Supreme Court said Texas lacked 'legal standing' in its General Election lawsuit, InterChurch News slipped in under the Twitter censorship wire:



Photo: Temecula Public Library with 'legal standing' voters on November 3, 2020.


Baseless rants, destroy statues of Jesus

Twitter, allowed on their platform hateful, baseless claims -- especially harmful to impressionable children -- about president Trump for over four years.

Here are some sample pre-election tweets by actor-director Rob Reiner:  

Rob Reiner's tweets were constant, many were rantings and filled with cursings not reprintable here:



'Racist Sociopath' 



Twitter allowed Reiner to tweet Trump-MAGA supporters were a 'White Supremacist Cult:'


InterChurch News canceled our account with Twitter. Removing president Trump's account and many other conservative voices who questioned election integrity and other issues -- yet retaining voices like Rob Reiner and Shaun King -- was too much of a double standard:
