Apparently it's against Live's ToS to express faith in a specific religion.

I received a 48 hour ban for a text message I sent with a Bible verse. I called and they told me I am not allowed to express my faith with Christianity, or any religion for that matter. How is that even legal for them to censor someone's beliefs?

I'm not going to renew my service with Live once it expires next month. This is unbelievable. I'll go check out what PSN has to offer. Hopefully they don't have idiotic rules that push a ridiculous agenda.

God Bless.

What does legal have to do with anything? You are confusing what the government (in the US) is restricted from doing. When you are in a private business, using their service you agreed to their terms, and there is nothing illegal about what you describe.

Also, I have no doubt that your story is a lie. And lying is a sin, you know. But it's not illegal.. And on gamefaqs the mods certainly don't care if you lie or troll. They do it themselves.

Did the recipient report you? Perhaps they felt offended.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I think we should worship the sun and moon as powerful gods, and fear them.

Why do you think it'd be illegal for them to censor you?

They aren't the government, so the fifth amendment doesn't apply and you agreed to the ToS when you joined XBL.

Why do I have the feeling we're not getting the whole story here and TC was most likely quoting the bible for anti-gay reasons or something similar?

Post the message that got you banned or get out.

I hope you get permabanned.

People who force their religion on others is the very reason there are so many people who don't have faith.

Have you ever had a turkeyburger? Is that a fried turkey leg wrapped inside a burger? Because if so, then yes. Delicious.

Didn't read the TOS? Don't know where and/or when Freedom of Speech CANNOT be used?

My views on DLC, if it takes longer for me to work to pay for it than actually play it, it's not worth it. Don't buy Capcom games! GamerTag - RE2LeonS
