Atheists- I need your help! Please mirror censored YouTube video.

Greetings everyone. I am Francois Tremblay. You may remember me vaguely, given that I posted a survey on this board three months ago. The following, however, is a plea for help and action.

On April 7th, I posted a video on YouTube called "Our God is an Awesome God." This video sought to illustrate the absurdity of Christian doctrines by superposing a part of the famous song, with visuals such as deformed babies, natural disasters, the Inquisition and the Holocaust. This is a message I strongly believe in. 

A few days ago, YouTube censored this video completely. My short exchange with them can be seen on this post:

http://www.graveyardofthegods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=113651#113651

 

 Given this act of blatant religious discrimination (as my video does not break any of their terms or conditions), my only course of action is to ask fellow atheists and anti-religious to mirror this video, and make our message heard.

 First, download the video at the following URL:

http://rapidshare.com/files/26749617/Our_God_is_an_Awesome_God_2.wmv.html

This is a slightly modified version, with an extra title at the beginning and end to acknowledge the censorship that has been perpetrated. Watch it for yourself and see whether this is something that you wish to support.

If you do, then upload it to your YouTube account, and put it up on the atheist groups.

Together we can send a clear message to YouTube and the fanatic Christian minority that we will not be silenced.

Thank you.

Mirrors going down already

So far we have 3 mirrors, and one of them has already been taken down after only a couple of hours.

I started an official list here:

Thank you very much

Thank you very much American Atheist. Please post the URL when you're done so I can add it to the official list.

 I will not repeat my mistake and post the video on any blog, since that seems to put it in jeopardy almost immediately- probably from some Christian fanatic that reads our blogs.

I have 2 strikes on youtube, so I'm uploading it on 2 accounts. (Including the one I have the two strikes in.)

Hope that helps. Smiling

I would be happy to help, but I have no idea how to do what you are asking.  Send me some how-to instructions, and I'll pitch in.

Yes, I am an idiot.

Thank you daveyboy-

Thank you daveyboy- unfortunately your mirror is now down, at least for now (perhaps it is still loading).

 That makes the current tally 7 mirrors up and 2 mirrors taken down.

I need to watch it to make sure it's something Iruka Naminori and the Iruka Naminori Association for Godless Living® would endorse, but I'll give it a think.

I did "a little editing" so YouTube can't claim copyvio on the song, even though we're well within right of parody.

 

You will find my version of your video here:
