Facebook rejects Jesus Crucifix Ad saying it was shocking and violent

A Catholic university in Ohio is not appeased that Facebook rejected an ad depicting the crucifixion of Jesus saying the image of Christ hung to the cross was ‘shocking and violent’.

Franciscan University, in Steubenville, said it had recently posted several ads on Facebook to promote its online theology program but one ad was rejected by the social networking site because its content was ‘shocking, sensational, and excessively violent’.

According to Daily Mail, The ad in question, according to the school, was Jesus nailed to the San Damiano Cross.

This is what the monitors at Facebook consider excessively violent, sensational, and shocking, the school responded in a blog post titled ‘He was rejected’.

‘And indeed the Crucifixion of Christ was all of those things. It was the most sensational action in history: man executed his God. It was shocking, yes: God designed to take on flesh and was ‘obedient unto death,’ even death on a cross’. And it was certainly excessively violent: a man scourged to within an inch of life, nailed to a cross and left to die, all the hate of all the sin in the world poured out its wrath upon its humanity.’

‘He could have descended from the cross at any moment. No, it was love that kept him there. Love for you and for me, that we might not be eternally condemned for our sins but might have life eternal with him and his Father in heaven,’ the school wrote.

Facebook has not returned a request for comment.

Last month, a woman who runs a religious blog complained that Facebook was censoring her ads depicting Jesus being crucified.

Sylvia, who runs the blog Passion of the Christ, said in a blog post that she received messages from the site saying her religious ads were either violating ‘advertising policies’ or were too violent.

‘Facebook is calling photos of the Passion of Christ violent, and indeed the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus was violent. But it is deeply troubling to me that a Christian advertiser I am being limited in what images I can share,’ she wrote.

A 39-year old woman, Iwuagwu Onyinyechi, has been apprehended by the Ogun police command after she defrauded a Christian church the sum of N100m, under the disguise of assisting the church to raise fund for her charity programme. Onyinyechi was able to defraud the church with forged documents three good times.

The police command in a statement read by its spokesman on Sunday Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Onyinyechi’s arrest followed a complain filed by a lawyer of the church, Godswill Ojakovo, to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, in which he said that his client, the church, was defrauded by Onyinyechi through an act of forgery.

According to the spokesman, Oyeyemi, the suspect claimed to have obtained a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a property company and pleaded to the church to help fund the LPO, after which a sum of N33.118m was successfully transferred into to her bank account.

While the church was awaiting the repayment of the loan, Onyinyechi came with another two LPOs she claimed she got from a Catholic Hospital, Iju and a private school in Ikorodu, Lagos State. Another sum of N77m was given to her, after convincing the church with relevant documents and proofs to back her claims.

But as soon as Onyinyechi got the last payment in September 2018, she went loose and this prompted the church to make discreet inquiries about the LPOs she submitted and found out that they were forged.
