Facebook bans Saint Augustine quote as ‘hate speech’



A decision by Facebook to ban a peace-loving quote by St. Augustine of Hippo, a Catholic theologian and philosopher from the 5th century, has one Catholic writer scratching his head.

Noticing that two priest-friends had been censored by the social media giant for posting the saint’s pastoral advice, Massachusetts pro-lifer Dominic Bettinelli published the same words to his Facebook wall on Friday. Then he, too, got a warning that the post went against Facebook’s “Community Standards on hate speech.”

The quote Facebook deemed so offensive is as follows:

Let us never assume that if we live good lives we will be without sin; our lives should be praised only when we continue to beg for pardon. But men are hopeless creatures, and the less they concentrate on their own sins, the more interested they become in the sins of others. They seek to criticize, not to correct. Unable to excuse themselves, they are ready to accuse others.

Well, pretty much the same 'facebook jail' happened to me, although I was not quoting st. Augustine, but merely provided a historical reference to swastika use in Soviet Russia, after 1917 and up until 1924.

So the recent history is a "forbidden knowledge" according to our corporativist overlords and their helpful algorithms. Why exactly is it forbidden? I guess it casts a shadow upon socialism as such - socialism that our ruling elite tries to promote for the masses, not for themselves, sure.

Bettinelli told LifeSiteNews that he may have found the crux of the problem.

“A friend posted just ‘men are hopeless creatures’ and that got banned, so that seems to be the relevant part that is hate speech,” he said.

Yep, it goes against the grain of Leftist teaching that men are perfect as they are and should merely engage more in navel gazing. Moreover, narcissism is protected under the leftist agenda.

Stupidity is not in the Leftist lexicon nowadays. They are openly proclaiming they are fighting the root cause of bigotry - THE FEAR, by repeatedly normalizing all the feared objects - muslims, gays, black people, gay black people, fat black women etc.

хорошая цитата, однако
и причина того, почему её забанили, очень хорошо её иллюстрирует

The only thing that wonders me is that someone can still be wondered by their activity. However, the feature of this issue is that f-c-book clearly attacked Christianity by it, which should be remembered (and, as for me, obviously condemned).
