A federal appeals court has ruled against self-described “former homosexual” minister James Domen, the pastor of Church United in Southern California. Domen had sued the popular video hosting site Vimeo for flagging and removing his videos which promoted conversion therapy.
The Blaze reports that the appeals court made its ruling based on Section 230, a provision in the law that prevents liabilities by tech companies for hosting content from outside parties on their websites.
Domen then sued, though he lost his case in January 2020. His loss in appeals court is just the latest blow to a career of already dubious distinction. On his website, Domen features images of himself with NFL player Tim Tebow and former Vice President Mike Pence. He also features a clip from an episode of The 700 Club of him detailing his struggle to accept his homosexuality and his claims that SOCE/conversion therapy allowed him to become straight by seeking and reveling in groups of masculine men.
Somehow, we’re skeptical.
