Paypal cuts cash to gay hate churches


Lance (Group Sects) writes…

Payment services companies including PayPal have cancelled accounts operated by Christian preachers who praised the Orlando gay nightclub shooter.

During a sermon after the Pulse nightclub shootings, Pastor Roger Jimenez told his congregation at Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento, California,  “I’m kind of upset that he didn’t finish the job.”

“I wish the government would round them all up, put them up against a firing wall, put a firing squad in front of them, and blow their brains out,” Mr. Jimenez preached.

Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona said the killings were  “good news” and “there’s fifty less pedophiles in this world.”

Both pastors describe each other as good friends.

Mr. Anderson has revealed both he and Mr. Jimenez have now had their accounts suspended by PayPal.

“So then we switched to another company called Givlet. They shut that account down. We switched to Qgiv. They shut that account down. They also shut down our BitPay account which is where we were able to receive Bitcoins,” Mr. Anderson said in a video message.

He has told supporters they should mail a cheque directly to his church address while they find a company which will allow them to do their “great work for God”.

“The only way to stop me would be to kill me and even that wouldn’t stop me.  Killing me would only make me even that much more popular, because my videos and sermons and audio would just live on and take on a whole new life of their own,” Mr. Anderson said.

PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy states its service may not be used for the ‘promotion of hate’.

  1. I don’t agree with Paypal’s action – its a restriction on free speech, and he can claim victim status against the status quo. His views are pretty vile though and if they amounted to inciting violence against gays I think he should be prosecuted – but by the government not by a financial services company.
