"Chad Robichaux, founder of the Mighty Oaks Foundation - a charity providing support and discipleship to those suffering from wartime trauma, was told he could not use the label 'Christian' to boost his advert on the Google owned platform as it violated the site's advertising policy."
"We ran a YouTube ad for our veterans ministry outreach for those in need & it was denied for the word 'Christian'".
"The YouTube team responded to Mr Robichaux's tweets, maintaining that targeting users based on their religion was in breach of their advertising policy but that adverts can include the term 'Christian' in them and still hope to reach a Christian audience."
"We know that religious beliefs are personal, so we don't allow advertisers to target users on the basis of religion. Beyond that, we don't have policies against advertising that includes religious terms like 'Christian'".
"Mr Robichaux has called out the tech giant for religious discrimination, saying that he posted the same ad with a target label of 'Muslim' and was not asked to take it down."I have no doubt that the social media and mainstream media providers are working to promote non-Christian values, and they are actively suppressing any Christian message.
"We ran the exact same ad with the keyword 'Muslim' it was approved but 'Christian' was not. Additionally, we've ran ads with the keyword 'Christian' for years. This year alone we had 150,000 impressions on that word in our ads. As per your support line this is a new restriction"
