A UK-based media organization, OpenDemocracy has claimed responsibility for the suspension of Popular YouTube channel own by Prophet Temitope Joshua’s ministry, the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) which had over 1,800,000 subscribers and 600,000,000 views.

OpenDemocracy, which describes itself as an “independent global media organisation” whose projects include championing “women’s and LGBTIQ voices”, revealed they reported Joshua’s activities to Facebook and DSTV, which hosts Emmanuel TV on satellite in Africa.
The Organization in an article published on its website titled, ‘YouTube closes African channel promoting televangelist’s violent conversion therapy’, Kerry Cullinan explained how the American video-sharing site terminated Emmanuel TV.

According to the report, the channel posted at least seven clips showing “the charismatic Christian televangelist engaging in exorcism to ‘cure’ gay and lesbian congregants of their sexual orientation by casting out ‘the demon of homosexuality’.”

Cullinan, however, acknowledged that after the Nigerian cleric’s prayers, the individuals concerned all testified that they no longer experienced same-sex attraction.

“YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit hate speech and we remove flagged videos and comments that violate these policies. In this case we have terminated the channel,” a YouTube spokesperson told openDemocracy after they reported Joshua to the social media giant.
