Andrew Torba, CEO of free speech oriented social media platform Gab, says his company will not respond to any journalists aside from Christians and those who work for "a Christian media company."
"New PR policy at Gab until further notice: if you're not a Christian reporter or from a Christian media company you will be ignored," the platform announced on Twitter Tuesday. "All other press statements will be published on our blog for pagan propagandists to pick from."
On Wednesday, Gab's Twitter account posted screen shots of an email interaction between the company and a writer for The Daily Dot. In response to an interview request emailed to Torba, a screen shot shows Gab responding with a single question and a link to the company's new interview policy. The question read: "Is Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior?"
Gab also noted on Twitter that conservatives don't just need an alternative on social media, but they "need to build [their] own economy."
