Facebook friend Aaron Shafovaloff, who writes at the excellent Mormon Coffee blog, recently had his Mormon Research Ministries Facebook account blocked for 30 days. The images above are screenshots of the warnings he received.
Note, he was replying to a Mormon explaining a Christian perspective on an aspect of salvation. As you can see, all he wrote was:
“God, I promise you nothing. Help me.” Jesus prefers that over temple vows.
That’s all it took to get him banned. There are many more offensive items on Facebook than Aaron’s statement. I’m not even sure how that is offensive and violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Someone mention on Aaron’s wall in a comment that he is not alone in his Facebook ban over Mormonism. Someone calling himself The Obstinate Christian wrote a post titled: FB-The Selective Enforcement Squad. He explains:
I have experienced my first threat from FB. On an ex-Mormon page, I had posted a question to the Mormon apologists (who were actually trolling and not giving any credible argument) asking them, “Where in the Bible does it say Joseph is above Jesus?”
That did it – banned from Facebook!
Is Facebook becoming the Mormon police? Or is it just a bias against Christianity? What am I missing here?
