Pastor appealing to US Supreme Court after Vimeo deleted testimony of his exit from gay lifestyle

by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent

(Worthy News) – A California pastor who was homosexual before giving his life to Christ is asking the US Supreme Court to intervene in a case he brought against Vimeo, after the platform deleted video testimonies of his successful exit from the gay lifestyle. Claiming unfair discrimination and a violation of his right to freedom of expression and religion, Rev. Jim Domen of United Church in Newport Beach filed papers with the US Supreme Court last week.

Domen grew up in an evangelical home, but entered the gay lifestyle as a young adult, he writes on his website. However, he endured a number of traumatic events, and this ultimately led him back to seek the Lord.

“God changed my life forever on June 8, 2002, when I lost all my worldly possessions and distinctly heard God’s voice telling me to come back to Him,” Domen writes. “I told God, ‘I’m yours again,’ and I began to realize that His strength is made perfect in my weakness – even in someone as broken as me.”

Domen went on to seminary and married his wife Amanda in 2009. The couple now have three children. As part of his pastoral ministry, Domen uploaded to Vimeo video testimonies of how he came to Christ and about how he changed from being a homosexual to being a heterosexual, NTD reports.

Vimeo wrote to Domen, telling him he was in violation of their terms of use, NTD reports. The platform announced they were deleting not only videos of Domen’s own story but a total of 89 videos on pastors sharing their stories. Moreover, they were terminating his account.
