YouTube has banned the trailer for Ray Comfort's 'Audacity' (YouTube)

On the weekend Americans celebrated freedom, YouTube censored the trailer for "Audacity," an upcoming movie on homosexuality by filmmaker Ray Comfort. In less than three weeks, the trailer garnered more than 130,000 views, but was suddenly removed on July 5 "as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content."

"This is such an irony," Comfort said. "Last year YouTube sent us a trophy congratulating us for surpassing 100,000 subscribers. Yet, now, because someone didn't like what they saw, YouTube is denying our freedom of speech and religion, and engaging in illegal viewpoint discrimination." 

According to the New Zealand-born filmmaker, whose movies have been seen by millions, "Audacity" shares the biblical view of homosexuality. 

"The foundation for the gay argument is that people are born that way, and that sexual orientation, like race, can't be altered," Comfort notes. "The trailer shows a number of people—both gay and straight—changing their minds about homosexuals being born that way, after I asked two simple questions. It's apparently unnerving for those who think people can't help being gay, and so YouTube decided to censor us. They're discriminating against us because of our religion."

Comfort added, "Watch the two-minute trailer and see if you can find anything that's 'spam, a scam, or commercially deceptive.' All we want is to be treated fairly." 

Comfort is asking Christians to respectfully request YouTube put the trailer back up by emailing press@youtube.com and copyright@youtube.com.

The trailer can be seen in another format on www.AudacityMovie.com.
