Yes, Ads are Back at Protestia. Here’s How to Get Rid of Them (Easily).

After years of griping about advertisements at Pulpit & Pen (and now Protestia), we listened and went ad-free. First, we are super-super thankful for our hundreds and hundreds of Patreon supporters who make it possible to pay our writers, the tech, the Polemics Report, and all the necessary equipment, insurance, and etc to make an operation like ours work. You guys are awesome.

After more than a decade of being the most effective and active polemics ministry in the world, we dumped the ads because we reached the point of patronage it wasn’t necessary. But here’s the thing…it turns out the trans-mob doesn’t like us much and they’re litigious. And although we raised a ton of cash for our legal defense just by asking for it (thanks, guys), the Big Banks (thanks, Chase) decided to hold onto it for a while (we wrote about that here just a few hours ago). But we don’t give up that easily.

We still have fights to fight, and right now we’re scrambling financially. We hoped that by going ad-free we’d see a big jump in patronage out of sheer appreciation. But…not exactly. We have seen about a 20% increase, but not enough to do without the ad revenue.

And so, here’s how this is going to work. If you go over to Patreon and subscribe for $5.95 a month, one of of your benefits you receive is a free PAID subscription to The Insurgency news blasts. That’s on top of getting the full Polemics Report podcast and not just the truncated free version on the Bible Thumping Wingnut’s RSS feeds. A reminder: It’s not automatic; upon signing up at Patreon, you need to email Cheyenne@GideonKnox.com and ask to be added to The Insurgency.

If you’re wondering what the heck that is, Gideon Knox Group (our publishing organization) has established a team of “news hounds” that scour hundreds of sources for news links likely to be banned by Big Tech (Facebook, Google, etc) and sends 50 or so news links directly to your email three days per week (for free) or six days per week for $7 a month or $70 per year.

We’ve already done the work of “news-hounding” for years, which is why you often see exciting or new headlines at Protestia FIRST. So our thought was, “Why not just take all the links being banned by Big Tech and send them directly to people’s email directly?”

When some of our publications got banned for stuff like calling Bruce Jenner a man or pointing out all the wildfire arsonists last year were Antifa activists – and especially when election fraud “conspiracy theorists” started getting banned – we thought it was the least we could do to get you the news, and it helps pay the guys who do all the work (because I’m primarily a pastor and stuff).

It has already been a Patreon reward, which saves you a whopping $1 per month than if you paid for The Insurgency by itself (which would still be worth it if you care about what’s really going on in the world).

However, back to those ads everybody hates…

The Insurgency will now include the articles written and published by Gideon Knox Group publications, ad-free, divided into two categories; polemical and political. That means you’ll get the ad-free articles sent directly to your inbox as a part of your daily email six days per week for paid subscribers (sorry, we don’t make our guys work on Sunday). You won’t even have to type in our URL and can avoid the website altogether (this will kill our web rank, but we conquered that a long time ago and already got the t-shirt).

The email will be super easy to navigate; polemical news articles, political news articles, and then the regular 50-banned links, all categorized separately for your viewing and browsing convenience (all without an ad in sight).

Remember, you can sign up directly at Substack for The Insurgency, or you can get it for a buck cheaper at Patreon plus all the other benefits. So unless you’re bad at math (I’m with you; listen to my last sermon), and decision-making, it’s waaaaay better to just bite the bullet and become a patron. You can do so by clicking this link here.

And if you hate the ads and don’t want to support us financially, might the Lord bless you richly anyway. But if so, please don’t complain about the ads.



A CALL TO ACTION

Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com

But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.

Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.

And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.

Because JD gets banned in Facebook a lot, you can also find him on Twitter here And if you're into politics, check out Montana Daily Gazette. If you just want his sermons, check out his SermonAudio feed

  1. It’s amazing how fast things are going downhill. Just 20 years ago, if you said marriage is between one man and one woman, or a man in a dress is still a man, you were mainstream, middle-of-the-road, and part of the vast majority. Now if you speak those truths, you are considered a far-right extremist, and have a target painted on your back.

    I don’t understand how they can legally turn down business for reasons of “reputation” and conscience according to their own contrived morality, but we cannot do the same, according to God’s morality, our reputation with Him, and our reputation with those we must not lead astray by example. If we had the same rights to turn away business for reasons of conscience or reputation, I’d be fine with it – no problem, if you don’t want to have anything to do with us, we don’t want anything to do with you. As far as I’m concerned, that would be preferable. But it seems we don’t have those same rights.

  2. yea.. I use ad blockers. I am not interested in anything.. If I want something I will go look for it.. But – I know it works.. So.. I sit at the cross roads of the “world”.. I deny ads.. I never see ads.. Is this a rant? No! This is just a fact. I do not even own a cell phone..

  3. This site is a mess. It has two pop-ups, one saying the site has gone ad-free, then another that says “Ads blocker detected!” With ads enabled, the site is so horribly bloated and excessively slow to load. Many of the ads are duplicated one on top of another, and then some ads feature Mormons soliciting clicks to damnable websites. Other ads are sexually explicit. Shame on you!

    1. “Other ads are sexually explicit. Shame on you!”
      Mystery Babylon is strong and active. Christianity making excuses for income while hypocritically peddling filth.

      I will unrepentantly use ad-blockers on everything.
      They use as much personal information about you for their income… “literally” making merchandise of us.
      2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

      Also, if you knew anything about security online, the various ad servers are routinely compromised and used to steal personal information as well as dealing out malware.
      1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

  4. I use an ad blocker and will not disengage it. I am not sure I even like this site yet and use it when I need a topic to write about or to see what is happening in other parts of the Christian world.

    I remember contacting this website about writing an article about my books and a couple of other topics per their instructions. What I received in return was complete silence. We have almost converted them to print on demand now and will make an announcement when they are ready. You will find our list at our theoarch website

    1. Hall bragged about using manipulation as a former vacuum salesman… and hypocritically, he is doing it again.
      Coming from a design/ad background myself, I have sub-zero sympathy for such manipulation.

      I am though very much sympathetic to needing money to run anything.
      Yet when he creates the non-biblical, new church title of “discernment ministry” or “polemics ministry” or whatever (just call yourself a Theologian bro)…
      he needs to put his money (supposedly in the millions) where his mouth is, and take the monetary hit to run this site.

      Hall has guts and some excellent articles that expose wolves within the church.
      However, it is moves like this in the article above which make me question his true heart and mind.

  5. Here’s how to actually get rid of the ads easily:

    1. Open the browser console by right clicking anywhere on the page and selecting “Inspect”
    2. In opened console, copy and paste the following JavaScript to hide the popup, then hit enter:

    jQuery(“#chp_ads_blocker-overlay”).add(“#chp_ads_blocker-modal”).remove()

    1. Looks like the quotations got automatically replaced with the special stylized variant after posting. You’ll have to replace the curly quotations (“) with the straight ones for this to work.

    2. Alternatively, with the ublock browser addon, you can right click on the popup and block any elements preventing you from visiting the site.

      Last time I tried to leave a comment here it didn’t get posted so I’ll try again. I have a suggestion for the site that might help a little: your home page is very cluttered. Articles show up in ~3 different spots (two of which are annoying rotating carousels). I’d much prefer if your home page simply had the articles listed from newest to oldest. If you must have a trending section, do it like capstonereport (off to the side or bottom for mobile).

  6. I get paid more than $120 to $180 per hour for working online. I heard about this job 3 months ago and after joining this I have earned easily $100k from this without having online working skills. Simply give it a shot on the accompanying site: https://www.cheapscams.com

  7. Google is paying $27485 to $29658 consistently for taking a shot at the web from home. I joined this action 2 months back and I have earned $31547 in my first month from this action. I can say my life has improved completely! Take a gander at what I do………… http://Moneystar5.cf/

  8. I see you’ve updated your adblockerblocker script. Nice try.

    If you want to get around the new adblocker script, search this: how-to-block-blockadblock-manually-using-ublock-origin
    You’ll find instructions that work easily. You can probably also just disable javascript.

    I don’t think putting ads that have suggestive and worldly messages/images is a good way honor the Lord. Either find a God-honoring ad service, host your own ads (which, btw, are hard/impossible to block), or we will continue blocking your ads.

    1. Excellent, thanks. Yes, their use of ads dishonors the Lord, whose name they bear, and they needlessly expose His sheep to temptations which may arise from immoral or heretical ads.
