A family ministry was attacked for their Christian values when well-known IT platform, Eventbrite, canceled their service. Eventbrite is a widely used event management and ticketing platform that canceled the event services of the Palmetto Family Council (PFC), a South Carolina nonprofit Christian policy organization.
According to a recent podcast with Justin Hall, the Communications Director at Palmetto Family Council, PFC was set to host a discussion forum featuring Chloe Cole, a teenage detransitioner, that uses her experience to warn others about the dangers of transgender surgeries.
Once Eventbrite learned of the nature of the event, they canceled their services on the grounds of a corporate policy violation, claiming the event was “hateful, violent, and dangerous.”
Mr. Hall stated they were de-platformed by Eventbrite because of the stance that they are taking against the LGBTQ+ progressive agenda.
“We are still holding the event,” Mr. Hall stated.
Back to Jerusalem used Eventbrite for our Voice of the Persecuted Church meeting in Dallas Texas last year and planned to use them again for next year. However, in light of recent events, BTJ has chosen to look for another vender and encourages other ministries to do the same.
It is arguable that Eventbrite’s actions were not merely displays of ethical beliefs, but instead, as pointed out in the podcast, are a collective effort of aggressive policies that were set forth in Maxism to isolate, ostracize, and punish those that do not adhere to progressive agendas. In this podcast we point out Eventbrites actions that can be clearly connected to common trends during the rise of the Communist Party in China.
