AFA of Indiana can't handle debate, scrubs my comments and blocks me

by Jeremy Hooper

If you go to the post, you will see that it says there are fifteen comments:

But there are not fifteen comments. Not anymore. And why not? Because after a lengthy debate in which the fact that we were even having a debate seemed problematic to the anti-gay organization, the American Family Association of Indiana has scrubbed all of my (and their) comments from the post, as if the whole thing never happened.

Unfortunately, I only got a partial screen cap of the exchange (sadly, I forgot to click on the "see more" links before taking pics); but here is what the AFA of IN doesn't want people to see. I think you'll get the gist:

[The now-scrubbed thread: AFA of IN]

***

**UPDATE: The AFA of Indiana just went ahead deleted the thread after people started calling them out for what they did. They are also doubling down on the truly weird, hilariously telling, and proudly discourse-stifling ideas that public Facebook forums are "fan pages" meant for only their own echo chamber and that it's "rude" to have political conversation with a political group on the other side of an issue. Oh, and of course they are claiming that they are now being victimized by violence, but of course that's all happening privately, where none of us can see it.

That subsequent conversation is playing out here.
