Facebook is facing more censorship and bias allegations from a Christian group that opposes abortion.
The West Virginia-based ministry Warriors for Christ repeatedly has had its Facebook pages removed by the social media giant, according to the Christian Post. Its main page, which has more than 225,000 followers, was removed again last week, allegedly for “hateful, threatening or obscene” content.
Ministry leader Pastor Rich Penkoski told the Post that they missed out on vital opportunities to help people as a result.
“When Facebook pulled our page [for the first time], we were actually counseling with a young woman who was suicidal,” Penkoski said.
The biggest issue seems to be the ministry’s stance on homosexuality, Penkoski said. However, they also stand strong for unborn babies’ rights and sexual purity, he said…. more
This is an ungodly company. All you need to do is stop using facebook. If people would stop supporting companies and/or people who go against what they believe then they would no longer have a company. Remember they need you to keep the dollars rolling in. LHWM has stopped using facebook along time ago.
In George Orwell’s 1984, the oppressive rulers of Oceania use devices called telescreens to closely monitor and repress citizens. Now Facebook looks set to follow in the Party’s footsteps by putting its own firm’s microphones and cameras into people’s homes.
The social network is planning to release its first ever piece of consumer hardware which will be called Portal and cost a whopping $499 (£368), a website called Cheddar has claimed.
The device will feature a 15inch screen, a wide-angle camera with facial recognition and microphones to allow voice control. It’s expected to use facial recognition to allow people to log into their accounts without having to type in passwords and will be dedicated to video chat…. more
I can tell you now I will not have one. We have no excuses or complaints for we are the ones who go out and buy these technologies. We make it so easy for the enemy to destroy us.
The world’s largest social network has just rolled out a new feature of its facial recognition technology that will notify users when someone has uploaded a photo of them even if they haven’t been tagged in it on Facebook.
The new feature sprang into action Tuesday. Facebook says it will “help people better manage their identity” on the platform “using face recognition.” Though not all of the network’s over 2 billion users will be able to avail of the new feature as those in the European Union and Canada are excluded due to privacy laws which prohibit Facebook’s use of facial recognition.

The threats to freedom of thought aren’t coming from the government these days, but from corporate America, says a columnist in the Wall Street Journal.
Kind of a groupthink, which Psychology Today speaks of as the result of members of a group valuing “harmony and coherence over accurate analysis and critical evaluation.”
“It causes individual members of the group to unquestioningly follow the word of the leader and it strongly discourages any disagreement with the consensus,” the group explains.
It’s Mark Epstein who is noting Google and Facebook account for 84 percent of all digital advertising outside China. This, he claims, gives the companies enormous leverage to censor content… more
Do not fear! Just get off these social medias and stop sharing your life on the internet. If your relationship with Jesus Christ is strong and then you know who you are in Christ. You know NO ONE will be able to tell you different or who you are. Jesus is bigger than them! Know who you are in Jesus the Christ!
Facebook has been attacked by one of its founding members for “exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology” and putting children’s mental health at risk.
Sean Parker, the former president of Facebook who joined Mark Zuckerberg’s company in its first months, said the company’s founders intentionally built the site to consume as much human attention as possible.
Parker, who has made billions as an early shareholder in the social network, also criticised Facebook’s effect on children. “It literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” he told newsite Axios. “It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”
“The inventors, creators… understood this consciously. And we did it anyway,” Parker said…. read more
Evangelist Franklin Graham has weighed in on the sexual harassment scandal surrounding actor Kevin Spacey and accused the Clinton and Obama administrations of giving Hollywood a “free pass” and allowing it to “pollute America’s youth with moral corruption.”
On Monday, actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey, one of Hollywood’s biggest names, tried to sexually molest him when he was just 14. Amid backlash, gay comedian Rosie O’Donnell likened Spacey to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein and tweeted that “we all knew” about the “House of Cards” star’s alleged behavior.
In a heated Facebook post shared Monday evening, Graham, the CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, asked, “Well, if everybody knew, why did they remain silent?”…. read more
Psalm 37 1 Do not be agitated by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong. 2 For they wither quickly like grass and wilt like tender green plants. 3 Trust in the Lord and do what is good; dwell in the land and live securely. 4 Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires. 5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act, 6 making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.
7 Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him; do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way, by the man who carries out evil plans. 8 Refrain from anger and give up your rage; do not be agitated—it can only bring harm. 9 For evildoers will be destroyed, but those who put their hope in the Lord will inherit the land. 10 A little while, and the wicked person will be no more; though you look for him, he will not be there.
11 But the humble will inherit the land and will enjoy abundant prosperity. 12 The wicked person schemes against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him. 13 The Lord laughs at him because He sees that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn the sword and strung the bow to bring down the afflicted and needy and to slaughter those whose way is upright. 15 Their swords will enter their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.
16 The little that the righteous man has is better than the abundance of many wicked people. 17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken, but the Lord supports the righteous. 18 The Lord watches over the blameless all their days, and their inheritance will last forever. 19 They will not be disgraced in times of adversity; they will be satisfied in days of hunger. 20 But the wicked will perish; the Lord’s enemies, like the glory of the pastures, will fade away— they will fade away like smoke.
21 The wicked man borrows and does not repay, but the righteous one is gracious and giving. 22 Those who are blessed by Him will inherit the land, but those cursed by Him will be destroyed. 23 A man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. 24 Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand. 25 I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned or his children begging for bread. 26 He is always generous, always lending, and his children are a blessing.
27 Turn away from evil and do what is good, and dwell there forever. 28 For the Lord loves justice and will not abandon His faithful ones. They are kept safe forever, but the children of the wicked will be destroyed. 29 The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it permanently. 30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom; his tongue speaks what is just. 31 The instruction of his God is in his heart; his steps do not falter. 32 The wicked one lies in wait for the righteous and seeks to kill him; 33 the Lord will not leave him in the power of the wicked one or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.
34 Wait for the Lord and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land. You will watch when the wicked are destroyed. 35 I have seen a wicked, violent man well-rooted like a flourishing native tree. 36 Then I passed by and noticed he was gone; I searched for him, but he could not be found. 37 Watch the blameless and observe the upright, for the man of peace will have a future. 38 But transgressors will all be eliminated; the future of the wicked will be destroyed. 39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord, their refuge in a time of distress. 40 The Lord helps and delivers them; He will deliver them from the wicked and will save them because they take refuge in Him.
The rise of social media has shown how the barriers between public and private are falling fast. Fueled by a climate of anti-Christian leftist bias, the devoutly-held Biblical beliefs of Christians are now under attack by private companies, labor unions and universities across the world.
Workers and students who express their opinion in favor of Christian principles or in opposition to the LGBT or abortion agendas now risk being fired from their jobs or expelled from academic programs.
In four recent cases, Christians were persecuted for expressing personal opinions, without a hint of hate speech, on social networks in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries were once considered leaders in freedom of speech, but now it is only left-leaning speech that is protected.
First, the case of a young woman named Madeline. In Canberra, Australia, an 18-year-old contract worker for the company Capital Kids Parties was let go after she put up a Facebook filter expressing her opposition to a same sex marriage vote. Her message read simply, “It’s OK to vote no“…. read more
Looking back, I think that Facebook decided that they had to do something about me after I wrote the article on Mark Zuckerberg’s tight relationship with SNOPES. That really hit a nerve, and since then my experience on FB has been quite stormy.
They began by banning me from sharing in any FB groups for a week or more. After my sentence was served, I would share only one time and immediately would get a warning that I somehow “Used sharing in an inappropriate way – even if I didn’t mean to.” It would then say “You may not share for 11 hours.”
A few days ago, FB friends were telling me that my comments on their pages were being flagged as “Spam.” I had never seen such a thing on FB – nor had my friends. That is when I realized that when I would attempt to just visit one of the many Christian groups to which I belonged, all I would see was a white page with no comments, with circles going round and round…. read more
