The Catholic Defender: Facebook Should Lose their TAX EXEMPT Status Now Part II
How many people out there has Facebook sought to intimidate using their Marxist/Communist tactics in pushing their agenda. They are right down the line with the radical Left pushing Socialism. Remember, to the Socialist, the end justifies the means. As Catholics, we agree there should be standards that all of us can abide by. Pornography is a great example, there are those who have no values who will try and push porno on anyone they can crash their perversion on. That is something that any valid platform should prevent.
Facebook would be right to prevent stalkers who pray on victims including children to keep them off the platform. Anyone who is using Facebook to push violence and threats, that should be avoided as well. There are things that Facebook clearly as a platform, can protect others from those who would use the platform for doing wrong.
However, Facebook, who is suppose to be a "Neutral" platform, uses their platform as a political entity violating free speech rights. If you disagree with their indoctrination of "climate change", President Trump, Pro-homosexual unions, you get black-balled in a hurry. Facebook obviously have "fact-checkers" who watch for anything against their agenda. Even on Catholic groups Facebook warns people about their "Community Standards" which is a veiled threat to block anyone who defends Catholic teaching.
Facebook is not suppose to be a representation of the Government running and picking what side they want. At least not silencing those who have a different view on things. Facebook is acting more like a publisher which is their right, but they should not get TAX EXEMPT status being a Government run entity who uses their platform for a political agenda.
Facebook is getting "Legal Protection" while at the same time they slander those they disagree with. They block those using "Community Standards" has a tactic to go after those they disagree with. They will accuse you of spamming when in truth, that is not happening. I've been blocked when simply placing one post in one group without any kind of warning or a reason why they are blocking you. You attempt to reach out to them but there is no way that I have found to get a response from Facebook. This morning I was blocked again even thought I posted in one group and the group I happen to manage.
I just cut and pasted the following:
Donald Hartley commented on DT D Devaroson's post: "I also like Acts 2:17-19! “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below,"".

About your comment "Only you and the group admins can see this post."
Clearly, I am marked as an Admin on the Rosary Patrol, "Donald Hartley, Admin, Central Texas College, The Rosary Patrol, Private group, 1.4K members." Yet, I get blocked posting there. I might get blocked if I go there and post on one other group. BTW, 99.99% of any posting I have done were in groups I am part of.
The Pew Research Centre Report, which analyses religious freedom in 198 countries and territories, reveals that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world today. Persecution is becoming more prevalent in the United States and Facebook is working towards this one inch at a time.
I defend Facebook's right to support what ever political entity they choose, but they should not have the TAX EXEMPT status while claiming to be a Neutral platform respecting the various groups who have a political position, a religious position where people come together in the freedom of ideas. Quoting a bible verse in a debate focusing on the bible should not be something Facebook should interfere. Facebook has lost customers over this. I had close to 5,000 friends and now I am under 4900.
As Christians, as Americans, you lose what you don't use and it is time that we stand up for our faith and our country against those who seek to tear it down. Socialism has never worked where it has been forced on the people. Listening to the News tonight, it is clear that we must ride the storm out.
