Mobile Cause, a California-based tech company, has been accused of religious discrimination and censorship of conservative voices. The company unexpectedly terminated its service with a Christian organization called the Family Research Council just an hour before a major event.
FRC used Mobile Cause to reach its thousands of supporters via text messaging. However, they were abruptly informed that they would only reach their supporters through social media and their website. The cancelation happened just an hour before the broadcast of the Pray, Vote, and Stand event.
Speaking to CBN, FRC said that “the termination, based upon Family Research Council’s religious views, prevented the broadcast from reaching thousands of Christian voters with information about the 2020 election.”
FRC had been using the Mobile Cause text messaging service for about three years. The Christian organization has used the service to inform supporters about other events such as Arise and Stand.
According to the FRC, the cancelation is more evidence of censorship of conservative voices by Big Tech.
“Mobile Cause has not only provided yet another example of big tech censorship, but in their desperation to silence those they disagree with, they have now added religious discrimination to their portfolio,” said FRC President Tony Perkins.
According to Perkins, it was no coincidence that Mobile Cause terminated the contract an hour before the event.
“Is it a coincidence that a big tech company pulled the plug on us one hour before the second installment of one of our most extensive evangelical voter education and mobilization efforts in this election cycle?
“The Left’s determination to silence voices with which they disagree should make clear to every evangelical voter what is at stake in this election and why they need to pray, vote, and stand! Big tech, Hollywood, and the elites intend to decide this election, and they will resort to religious discrimination, censorship, and bullying to get that mission accomplished. We cannot, and we must not allow them to succeed.”
