'One Man, One Woman' campaign shut down on Twitter
Logos Post News Desk - A new book promoting the traditional Christian view of marriage was labeled "hate" and was blocked from advertising last month on a social media site.
One Man One Woman, a new book published by Westbow Press, was shut down on Twitter from a promotional campaign run by the author Craig Stellpflug and told he could not promote the book on the social media site, an action Stellpflug believes violates his free speech and freedom to hold to a biblical view of marriage.
"Christian values have once again taken a back seat to liberal views to the point of squelching my freedom of speech," said Stellpflug.
"The book is not about hate toward any groups, but the acceptance of Christian values," continued Stellpflug.
Rather than hate, Stellpflug believes the book offers hope to all people. "People are going to sin, and God has a plan, even for the sinner."
"Take the woman at the well for example in the Bible. She had been through 5 marriages and was shacked up with another man. Jesus didn't tell her to get her life right so we can get you born again. He said let me teach you about the Holy Spirit."
Stellpflug quickly moved on from Twitter and is finding success promoting his book on Google and Facebook, but hopes that his views are not shut down in the future, especially since a majority of the population identifies as Christian and supports the traditional Christian view of marriage.
In response to Twitter Stellpflug reiterated that people should never judge a book by it's cover.
"I would say, 'Never judge a book by it's cover! You should read the book before you label it hate against any group. This book is about conventional Christian marriage. It is also about fornication, adultery, incest, homosexuality, divorce, and remarriage after divorce. It is about oneness with God and what breaks that oneness.'"
