Kirk Cameron's Religious Film 'Unstoppable' Banned by YouTube and Facebook

Kirk Cameron, former star of "Growing Pains" and devout Christian, now knows what it feels like to be persecuted. Cameron claims Facebook and YouTube have censored the trailer for his new movie, "Unstoppable."

Somehow, Cameron wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday, both Facebook and YouTube flagged the trailer as "abusive, unsafe and spammy" (Facebook) and "spam, scam and deceptive" (YouTube). He couldn't upload the trailer to YouTube nor post links to its official website on his Facebook page.

Cameron was baffled by Facebook's decision, writing "This is my most personal film about faith, hope, and love, and about why God allows bad things to happen to good people. What is 'abusive' or 'unsafe' about that?!"

Desperate, Cameron appealed to his fans, asking them to "please help us encourage Facebook to unblock our website soon by sharing this post with your friends so more people can see this transparent, faith-building project."

In his free time, it appears, Cameron modeled for symbolic photos that sure looked a lot like that "No H8" campaign that Cameron's anti-gay past comments would suggest he's not a fan of.

Blessedly, by Friday, Cameron's own No H8 campaign worked. "Victory!! Friends, you did it!" he posted. "Because of your firm, loving, and clear voice, not only did Facebook welcome us back, YouTube also removed its block on our Unstoppable movie trailer. We are back online with full access."

    The RIGHT WING, HOMOPHOBIC ‘CHRISTIAN TALIBAN’ is at it again, I see. Why can't they just accept GAY ORIENTATION & stop telling ‘SHEEPLE’ it's a “choice”???!

    And he still has a right to his opinion. I realize that may upset your hypocrital liberal way of thinking, but it's true. Why don't you just over your whiney ass self?

    there is no god
    i am not trying to argue with you but that is the cold hard truth
    common sense
    people use moments from their own life to force religion on people
    for example my ”father” had a heart attack
    he said there IS a god
    he saw a white light etc
    garbage
    stomach turning garbage

      Gerard I'm sorry to hear u feel that way. My question is, “when did human beings become so smart to think that their “common sense” was so superior than a belief of a higher power? It all comes down to faith. You have faith in your common sense and I have faith in my God in Heaven. One of us is wrong, but I would rather be wrong and on my way to nowhere when I die than be wrong and end up on my way to Hell. I think I'll choose my faith instead.

    I'm just going to ask you, have you seen this movie at all?

  • Joseph Grutt

    I was under the impression the Romans in the time before Christ committed most of the horrific acts. That being the case, those acts clearly weren't done in his name. He didn't exist yet.

    Calm down people… Remember it isn't for us to persecute others for their sins etc… God did not give us the right to judge others, instead we can spread his word in a kind and loving way and if they still won't listen then God will deal with them later. and remember… how many times we should forgive…
