Giant Tech Firm Cancels Key Tech Services Contract Just Prior to Major Evangelical Voter Outreach Event
Sep 10, 2020
MobileCause, a major tech company whose technology facilitates company’s ability to text their customers and constituents, has been accused by the Family Research Council (FRC) of abruptly terminating its contract with them just one hour before the scheduled start of an episode of its Pray, Vote, Stand event. With no time to implement a back-up plan, FRC was prevented from sending out text invitations to tens of thousands of our followers to join the broadcast. FRC considers the tech company action as an act of discriminating against its religious beliefs.
Tech Company Accused of 'Religious Discrimination, Censorship' for Blocking FRC
The tech giant contends that it wrote a letter on August 27 notifying FRC that it had received nearly 100 complaints of text spam by FRC, which it vehemently denies and contends all its recipients opted-in. MobileCause also noted that it began investigating FRC after the complaints and found that the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed FRC as a hate group, which is what really led to the contract termination.
According to a statement issued by the FRC’s president, Tony Perkins, “MobileCause has not only provided yet another example of big tech censorship but in their desperation to silence those they disagree with, they have now added religious discrimination to their portfolio.” He also noted that it is no coincidence that this action took place just an hour before the second installment what he described as “one of our most extensive evangelical voter education and mobilization efforts in this election cycle.”
