"People are contacting me saying, 'I cannot access your page at all--my app shuts down when I click on your page.' They say, 'I cannot share your page--there are no share buttons on your videos' or 'I cannot like your page--when I like your page and I go back the next day it is unliked,'" she said.

Johnston went on to accuse the site of censorship and said that there should be a congressional hearing on the matter.

Facebook said that they were looking into the issues raised by Johnston.

In February, Johnston had her account frozen for seven days after she re-shared comments she made about homosexuality which were previously removed by Facebook.

Johnston, who has nearly more than 83,000 followers on Facebook, said: "Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13 similarly call homosexual sex 'detestable' and an 'abomination'."

After the incident, a Facebook spokesperson said the post had been removed in error.

The spokesperson added: "Our team processes millions of reports each week, and we sometimes get things wrong. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."
