That’s right. A peaceful image and poem is considered by the social media giant as “graphic content.”
An additional warning beneath the obscured image states, “This photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it.”
Users can uncover the image by clicking a button, but many people are asking what sort of Godless liberal decided that the nativity and Santa equal violent content?
“We also know that people have different sensitivities with regard to graphic and violent content. For that reason, we add a warning label to especially graphic or violent content so that it is not available to people under the age of eighteen and so that people are aware of the graphic or violent nature before they click to see it.”
“We err on the side of allowing content, even when some find it objectionable,” declares Facebook’s community standards.
A number of people want to know how that definition applies to the baby Jesus and Santa.
The image in question, of mankind’s Savior and a popularized version of St. Nick, was originally posted on December 1, 2015, with this poem:
My dear precious Jesus, I did not mean to take your place,
I only bring toys and things and you bring love and grace.
People give me lists of wishes and hope that they came true;
But you hear prayers of the heart and promise your will to do.
Children try to be good and not to cry when I am coming to town;
But you love them unconditionally and that love will abound.
I leave only a bag of toys and temporary joy for a season;
But you leave a heart of love, full of purpose and reasons.
I have a lot of believers and what one might call fame;
But I never healed the blind or tried to help the lame.
I have rosy cheeks and a voice full of laughter;
But no nail—scarred hands or a promise of the hereafter.
You may find several of me in town or at a mall;
But there is only one omnipotent you, to answer a sinner’s call.
And so, my dear precious Jesus, I kneel here to pray;
To worship and adore you on this, your holy birthday.
Lifesite news reported, “Facebook has a long history of censoring faith-based organizations and individuals. The social media giant has been forced to apologize for numerous instances of improperly flagging conservative or Christian content as ‘hateful’ or otherwise inappropriate.
“Facebook has censored a Christian theology professor after he criticized a video selling LGBT ‘pride’ to children. It has suspended the account of Elizabeth Johnson, a Christian who goes by the name of Activist Mommy, after she called gender confusion a mental illness.”
Such blatant censorship is only increasing, and the people who continue to use Facebook solidify the push to control world culture.
Blocking the nativity scene with Santa added, many people recognize, is only violent and offensive to evil people.
