I dislike Facebook. I have a page, or whatever you call it, but I don’t like it. I don’t understand why anyone does.

They did, after all, just ban Franciscans from using the San Damiano Crucifix on their page, calling it a violation of terms of service… thus giving new meaning to “he was despised, rejected”.
From the cite of Franciscan University:

One ad was rejected, and an administrator of our Facebook page noticed this rejection today. The reason given for the rejection?
“Your image, video thumbnail or video can’t contain shocking, sensational, or excessively violent content.”

Our ad was rejected because it contained:
- shocking content
- sensational content
- excessively violent content
What was the offending image?
