I want you to help me pray for my YouTube – TB Joshua beseeches
The father of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor TB Joshua, has urged his church members to pray for the rehabilitation of the vetoed YouTube channel, aso Naija reports.
This was after the streaming giant banned the Emmanuel TV channel over allegations of hate speech against LGBT people.
“I want you to help me pray for YouTube,” said Temitope Balogun Joshua, known as TB Joshua, in his Sunday service shared on Facebook.
Last week, YouTube closed the pastor’s channel with more than 1.8 million subscribers and 600 million views.
The UK-based rights organization OpenDemocracy said it was behind the closure.
“In response to our inquiries about TB Joshua´s controversial exorcisms, YouTube terminated his channel,” it said on its website.
In one of his YouTube videos, watched more than 1.5 million times, a woman is seen being hit violently to “cure” her of her sexual orientation.
“Between 2016 and January 2020, the channel posted at least seven similar clips showing the charismatic Christian televangelist engaging in violent exorcism,” OpenDemocracy wrote.
Joshua has already mobilized his followers to inundate YouTube with protests and appeals.
