Facebook Bans Blaze TV Host for Issuing Call to Prayer

Graham Allen is an 11-year Army combat veteran turned podcaster and vlogger.

Allen's program "Rant Nation" is on Blaze TV and his audience is growing as he addresses a number of today's issues from a veteran's perspective.

Allen issued a call to pray for President Trump and then something unusual happened with Facebook.

"I'm known for being kind of blunt in my videos," Allen said during an interview on Monday's CBN Newswatch program. "It's interesting that this video caught so much attention, because it was a very low-key video. And it was in response to some heat a pastor got for praying for President Trump when he attended a church in Virginia."

"And so, I just felt the need to address the hypocrisy of Christians being upset for praying for our leader in America, whether you agree with President Trump or not," he explained. "The video was pretty much just if you believe that Donald Trump is this horrible, racist, bigoted person, isn't that the type of person that you should want to pray for?

"And so I made a video and basically captioned it, saying "Real Christians Pray For Everyone," Allen explained. "And a couple of days later, I got a notification from Facebook that I had violated their community standards for hate speech. So they took the video down. They removed it. I got no appeal process ... no anything. And I just found it incredibly, incredibly sad that calling for pray for the president of the United States was considered hate speech."
