Posted on 08/16/2013 6:35:33 PM PDT by Kaslin
There's a certain page on Facebook people of faith do not like.
Created in February, the Virgin Mary Shouldve Aborted Facebook page originally included this controversial description, presumably speaking from Marys perspective:
I'm here to explain what really happened in biblical times, since the bible is full of lies. My rapist's offspring has destroyed the planet and brainwashed millions. Rage-quitting is for loose buttholes.
Bible-believing Facebook users who are members of the group, Catholics & Protestants Against FB Religious Discrimination led the online fight to have the page taken down -- and succeeded. But, they didnt have long to celebrate. As the religious group reports, Facebook just reversed its decision. Now, the newly republished "Virgin Mary Should've Aborted" page has over 8,000 likes.
Cary Bogue, the founder of Project Wildfire, a pro-life group which combats mixed messaging from Planned Parenthood, called into the radio show "The Real Side with Joe Messina" today to weigh in on Facebook's decision to republish the VMSA page.
Facebook took the page down, but, two days ago they reversed their decision and the blasphemous, horrendous page is up....We're getting the short end of the stick.
Bogue went on to explain how 22,000 Catholics had asked the social media site to ban the group. But, considering the sheer size and power of Facebook, coupled with Zuckerberg's atheist beliefs, it seemed liked an uphill battle. That doesn't mean Christians are giving up without a fight, however. Bogue said religious social media users are taking part in a tweetfest Monday to condemn religious discrimination and boycott Facebook advertisers by using the hashtag #ChristiansWontBeSilenced.
I once posted a pro-life infographic on Facebook which, among other "incriminating" features, listed abortion facts and included animated pictures of babies. I was banned from the site for 12 hours. I couldnt even log in. The social network even brought me to its Community Standards page to inform me why I was banned.
Most interesting to me now is the hate speech section, which reads:
Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't it cross these Facebook administrators' minds that Christians would feel a bit "attacked" by the "Virgin Mary Should've Aborted" page? After all, Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior and to think He would've been "aborted" is quite unsettling -- not to mention life-changing.
There's nothing wrong with free speech. But there are certainly bright red flags when Facebook makes decisions that suggest it is more sympathetic to one side of the abortion issue than the other.
Messina asked Bogue how Christians can battle and win against the giant that is Facebook.
It's a David-Goliath story. But, if you get a pebble in the right place, you can knock 'em down.
So should’ve Ann Dunham.
Ann Dunham did have an abortion.
Worry not......Facebook will likely be extinct in 10 -15 years.
She should have had at least one more.
Then there would be TWO Barack Obamas.
someone should put up a page
the mother of the creator of the Facebook page “the virgin Mary should have aborted” should have aborted
Anyone who says such things about Mary, or any other iconic figure in religion REALLY, REALLY has a problem with Mary and/or that religion. Mary is the least acerbic of all figures in all religions. Why pick on her? FEAR.
The gates of hell cannot prevail against her.
A Fakebook group can say anything, what’s the big deal?!
This is the same spirit that possessed King Herod. He tried to destroy Jesus at birth. Told the wise men he wanted to go and worship the child.
Then had every child that was born that year ordered slain. And Jesus Mary and Joseph escaped into Egypt.
It’s no big deal. Just more grist for the mill.
Let's just enjoy the joyous. Honor the honorable. Love the lovely.
“Father forgive them for they know not what they do!”
These people have been coming after the church since the day it was born on the day of Pentecost.
Saul of Tarsus who became the Apostle Paul was one of them. : )
I don’t think Mary needs protection from Zuckerburg.
He be needing a little comfort from her son at some point in his life though.
Thank God that this facehooker page doesn’t violate any of their standards. Now let’s see the pages author make the same kind of page featuring mohamed.
