Google VP Stepped In to Ban Christian Political Advertisements About Traditional Marriage When Employees Began Complaining That Lawful, Respectful Political Disagreement Was a "Microagression"

The control of information is like the command of the skies during a war -- a nigh decisive advantage -- and the corporate pets of Conservative, Inc. are almost giddy about it being put safely into their leftist allies' hands.

Google barred a Christian video on same-sex marriage from advertising on YouTube after backlash from employees, internal communications show.

The video said gay people are welcome as Christians but are called to follow Christian teachings on sex and marriage.

A Google VP agreed the video was too offensive to air as an advertisement.

Google HR highlighted the video and response in an internal newsletter dedicated to policing "microaggressions."

Google banned a video explaining Christian teaching on same-sex marriage from advertising on YouTube after backlash from upset employees, according to internal Google communications reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The video was flagged in June 2018 in an internal listserv, "Yes at Google," which is run by Google's human resources department, according to those communications and other internal documents, which a source shared with TheDCNF on the condition of anonymity.


The listserv has more than 30,000 members and is devoted to policing "microaggressions" and "micro-corrections" within the company, according to its official internal description.

The internal backlash to the video grew large enough to merit a response from a Google vice president, who said the video would no longer be eligible to run as an advertisement, the human resources team announced to the listserv. ople are welcome as Christians but that, like every other person, they are called to follow Christian teachings on sex and marriage.

Brown has spoken out in the past against “homo-hatred” and “ugly rhetoric” directed at gay and lesbian people by fringe groups like the Westboro Baptist Church.

In the video, he describes same-sex relationships as "like other sins, but one that Jesus died for."

The belief that sex is meant to take place in the context of a male-female marriage -- as argued by Brown -- is central to most major Christian denominations' marital teachings.

...


"I cannot see how this can be allowed when the specific idea of LGBT videos is to allow the creators to feel free to share their content and be comfortable that anti-LGBT advertisers would not be attached to their content," the employee wrote. "This seems very counter to our mission, specifically around PRIDE 2018 timeframe."

Google's vice president for product management and ads, Vishal Sharma, agreed that the video was too offensive to air as an advertisement.

"Thank you for raising this very important issue. It means a lot to me personally and those of us working on this across the Ads and YouTube teams. YouTube is an open platform and we support the free expression of creators with a wide range of views," Sharma wrote in his response, which was included in the listserv.

"But we don’t allow advertising that disparages people based on who they are – including their sexual orientation – and we remove ads that violate this basic principle," Sharma continued.

The Daily Caller News Foundation then recounts the story from a few months ago when Google employees melted down over someone's use of the word "family," finding that the word "family" unfairly suggested that those without families did not have families.

Well, sure it looks tough for us that the entire information battlefield is controlled by a seven-headed dragon of coordinating monopolies ruled by leftists, but you know what will win the day for us?

Just a couple of more David French columns, turgid with sanctimony, that "blame both sides." That should do the trick!
