‘We Refused to Retract This Truth’: Christian Outlet Returns to Twitter After Ban For ‘Calling a Man a Man,’ Powerfully Explains Why It Wouldn’t Delete Offending Tweet By Billy Hallowell for Faith Wire
GNN Note – Gospel News Network will not participate, nor support, anyones delusion they have “transitioned” from one sex to another. This is not possible, nor is it Biblical, As a matter-of-fact, God flooded the world due to such insanity as this being so pervasive in the Days of Noah. The “trans agenda” is a delusion that requires professional mental health care. No one was “born this way”. Each one of us were born the way we are born – male or female – as God assigned us one of two genders. / END
The Christian Post has been reinstated to Twitter nine months after the social media giant reportedly punished the faith-based media outlet for tweeting a story about U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, a biological male who identifies as female.
“Our Twitter account has just been reinstated after a 9-month suspension because we correctly called Biden official Rachel Levine a man — and we refused to retract this truth,” The Christian Post announced Dec. 31 in a series of tweets.
The outlet went on to explain its reasons for refusing to delete the offending tweet, expressing the quest to stand by journalistic truth and Christian ethics.
“As journalists, we understand our ethical obligation to provide accuracy over narrative and truth over opinion,” a subsequent tweet explained. “Calling a man a man is a scientific truth, not opinion. Editorializing facts is called commentary, opinion, or, in some cases, dishonesty.”

More important than these realities, though, The Christian Post pointed to its “primary responsibility” — a love for the Lord and to “advancing His truth.” This devotion led the outlet to decline to backtrack on the truth or bow down to the “immoral demands of Twitter’s former leadership.”
“In this case, obedience to God meant judgment by man,” the outlet continued. “As living sacrifices to God, this was a small but necessary line for us to draw.”
