Facebook’s Hate Speech Ban, Bans Jesus Christ.
Excerpted from https://revealingfraud.com/2019/07/political/my-feedback-on-facebooks-community-standards-part-iii/
Tier 1 appears to be no dehumanizing comparisons.
Tier 2 appears to be no statements of inferiority, with specifics about things like IQ and morals.
Tier 3 appears to be no calls for exclusion.
All three of these types of bans violate Facebook’s own principle of not discriminating against the protected class of religious orientation, specifically Christianity, which is hypocrisy.
Tier 1 violation: Jesus compared people to animals. Jesus compared King Herod to a fox, which is an animal. “Luke 13:32 He replied, “Go tell that fox, ‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.’” Jesus compared the Pharisees to a snake, a viper. Matthew 23:33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape the sentence of hell?”
Tier 2 violation: Jesus directly attacked the morals of the Pharisees in the same chapter: Matthew 23:23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You pay tithes of mint, dill, and cumin, but you have disregarded the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. … 28 “In the same way, on the outside you appear to be righteous, but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. “
Tier III violation: Jesus explicitly said they will be excluded from the kingdom of heaven: Matthew 23:13 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let in those who wish to enter. Jesus explicitly rebuked the Pharisees for their hypocrisy seven times in that chapter. Jesus defined hypocrisy at the very beginning of Matthew Chapter 23: “they do not practice what they preach”.
The first day that I noticed how Facebook’s community standards on “hate speech” would ban Jesus Christ, and I mean all three of their Tiers would ban Jesus, I thought how odd that Facebook would have somehow insulated themselves from Conservative and Christian voices so well that they don’t even know that their standards would ban Jesus. As if they don’t even have one single Christian or Theologian on staff to help guide them? Also, I’ve known Atheists who know the text of the Bible better than they seem to. They must be in quite a bubble of their own making.
The next day, I began to wonder, perhaps it’s not a coincidence or outcome of their liberal bias at all. Perhaps it’s deliberate? But what kind of influence then, does this suggest that they would they be under? I can think of three possibilities, but it’s pointless to speculate. Very peculiar. The big point, and it’s big enough, is that their “community standards” require a ban on Jesus, but also require not banning Jesus!
I guess I can’t really be too upset that Facebook gets this wrong. I’ve been banned from countless religious forums for quoting the Bible. People really just get upset when you tell them they are wrong. That’s human nature.
One of the things I’ve been accused of over the years is “At least he practices what he preaches!” Kind of ironic.
