Yesterday, I uploaded video explaining Prabhupada’s position on homosex, and within 24 hours, youtube blocked my video because of “hate speech”.
Now, I clearly stated in the video, that homosexuals are free to do whatever they want, I clearly said that I don’t hate them. But I also said that as I learned from below quote, that they are lower than animals from the vedic perspective.
I didn’t advocate any violence against homosex people, but still some guy in pink t-shirt in silicon valley got offended.
So, in the 21st century, you are not allowed to quote religions scripture if it says that homosex people are not saints. Now, if I want to be youtuber, I have to say that gays are most spiritual people that ever existed. This type of censorship is worse than China and North Korea.
So, let me repeat, just in case anybody from youtube censors is watching this, from the vedic perspective, according to Srila Prabhupada, founder acarya of ISKCON, “homosexuals are less than animal”. This is the official position of the Hare Krishna movement.
The Prabhupada statement in particular that I quoted was that homosex people are lower than animal:
Prabhupada: Now the priestly order supporting homosex. I was surprised. They are going to pass resolution for getting married between man to man. The human society has come down to such a degraded position. It is astonishing. When I heard from Kīrtanānanda Mahārāja there is a big conference for passing this resolution. In India still, if there somebody hears about homosex (makes sound of breathing out). Homosex is there but nobody will support publicly. (indistinct) People are going down and this is the subject matter for priestly order? It may be subject matter for the legislator, priestly order, they are discussing for one week. Just imagine. Phalena paricīyate, one has to study by the result. Not that superficially you show that “We are very much advanced.” Phalena, what is the result? Phalena paricīyate, your, that is in English word also, end justifies the means. The end is this (indistinct) “We are going to support homosex.” Getting married. There are many cases the priestly order has actually got married. I read it in that paper, Watch, what is called?
Prabhupāda: Watchtower. They have complained(?). So we have nothing to (indistinct) them. The world is degrading to the lowest status, even less than animal. The animal also do not support homosex. They have never sex life between male to male. They are less than animal. People are becoming less than animal. This is all due to godlessness. Harāv abhaktasya kuto mahad-guṇā [SB 5.18.12], godless civilization cannot have any good qualities. Harāv abhaktasya kuto mahad-guṇā mano rathena asato dhāvato… They simply go to the untruth by mental speculation. (Conversation with the GBC, May 25, 1972, Los Angeles)
My God, some guy in pink t-shirts in Silicon Valley thinks he can censor Prabhupada. I think I will have to shift hosting my videos in unfree countries such as China or Russia. This american freedom of speech where you are not allowed to quote Prabhupada is something I can not digest.
Now, here is some real hate speech: “You(tube) morons, your freaking website is not the only way to host videos in 21st century, you achieved nothing by censoring Prabhupada and your phony anal freedom of speech ‘community guidelines’ are useless.”
At the end, I want to say that I don’t hate homos, I just don’t like them. There is big difference. I don’t like chocolate ice-cream, I like vanilla. That doesn’t mean I hate chocolate.
Here is my video again, everybody can judge if I hate homosexuals or I advocate violence against them, censor this if you can:
