Facebook Removes Post About Jesus, Calls It ‘Hate Speech’

Facebook took down a post reading, “Jesus died so you could live” describing it as “hate speech.”

The post came from former Blazer journalist Billy Hallowell, who has since appealed the “hate speech” label.

The post was made on April 2, a week before Easter, making the statement timely.

Facebook rejected the appeal, claiming, “We are unable to show content that goes against our community standards on hate speech.”

Reporting from Reclaim the Net:

So instead of justifying the extreme downrank of the – factual in that sense – post with, “we have these (hate speech) standards so that everyone feels safe, respected and welcome” – perhaps a non-mindless Facebook “moderation” system would have understood it was precisely reactions like these that made Christians feel neither “safe, respected, nor welcome.”
