  • So I get a message from Facebook today that I am banned for 12 hours because of a post I made and the post was removed. What did this post say? Well, I will do my best because I am working off of memory here...

    "Being ____ly violated is not an act of love. It's an act of violence whether or not it is done with consent or not. This is why we need to treat homos as the sexual perverts they are and not treat it as a normal life style."

    I had several "likes" on this comment but since I offended the homos on Facebook, they see fit to ban me for 12 hours. The ban is not that big of deal...it's just the principle of it. If it wasn't for the fact that I have family that I talk to and there are a few really good trad groups on there I would say goodbye to Facebook.

  • You seem to have a penchant for being banned. FE, SD, and now FB.

    I keep saying, "Family only" (family grows to "alumni family" who are indeed like family, and then friends)... we should quit, you know.

    I had an attitude that, FB is a publically-traded company, so we use their service and follow their rules, and maintain a modicum of privacy.

    My problem is NOT that your comment was banned, but that FB allows far worse offensive comments, pages, pictures, you name it, against Catholics, our Lord, the Holy Mother (things I won't repeat) and even when there is a campaign to remove such offensive posts (which again makes anything you said look kindergarten-mild), Facebook has claimed the offenses we report break no rules. (So I just blocked the offensive pages and people, and kept to myself.)

    But given your ban, I find that there is such a double-standard on Facebook that I'm not sure I can justify maintaining a presence on FB. I wonder if there's a different service (not Google +, as they're just as bad if not potentially worse) that my friends and family and alumni might entertain abandoning FB for.

    Of course, the same problem of FB being standard on elderly family members' "cable boxes" — those things with Netflix and apps on them, but they're not cable really — makes FB their only real means of "staying in touch." I'm truly at odds with myself here. I know of Diaspora, but I'm not sure such things are available on those cheap little Netflix boxes.

    And saint Paul tells us not to associate with the sexually immoral.

    "Love the Sinner hate the sin" is derived from St Augustine who actually said (translated) "With love for mankind and hatred for sin".

    That really does not sound like "Go up and give someone a hug, now does it ?

    In fact if you have true hatred for sin, you are not going to accept the gay lifestyle nor those who are involved in it.

    If it will somehow help to lead them away from sin I would do it.

    You will go around hugging homophiles to lead them away from sin ?

    If you say so.

  • "In fact if you have true hatred for sin, you are not going to accept the gay lifestyle nor those who are involved in it."

    If you have true hatred for sin you would pray for the conversion of teh sinner. You would also not hate the sinner. The same lawgiver who said "Thou shalt not commit sodomy." also said, "Thou shalt not judge." and "Love thy neighbor as thyself." and taught us the prayer which said "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us."

    Here we go with the "Thou shalt not judge" slang again.

    Jesus told us to admonish the sinner, St Paul told us not to associate with the sexually immoral. How do you suggest we do that ?

    When the Bible itself tells us it is a sin it is called discernment.

    When you encounter Jesus on the road to Emmaus then your opinion of what is proper I will hold in as high a regard as I hold St Paul's.

    "Love thy neighbor as thyself" is the same lawgiver who fashioned a whip and used it against those who offended his Father's house.

  • If one posted the typical mush one sees on Facebook here, would it not get one banned here also?

    I know what you mean...a couple weeks ago I was banned for a full 24 hours because I spoke out against Muslims. I said that Mohammed was a pedophile and is burning in Hell for eternity and that earned me a ban. I would have no problem with the ban if they would also ban people that blaspheme God and Our Lady, but of course, it's open season on Christians...particularly Catholic. Of course what do you expect when you have a Pope who, if he saw my posts, would tell me I am not humble enough and that I am "self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism of those who ultimately trust only in their own powers and feel superior to others because they observe certain rules or remain intransigently faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past."

  • Traditional Catholics should no take Facebook seriously.  It's even a bad idea to have a facebook account, although I can understand that some people use it as a means of keeping in touch with others.

    With the internet, and all the sources available to people who seek knowledge in 2013 (soon to be 2014), we must come to grasp with the very scary notion that some people have rancid souls and like a dog to it's vomit, they love doing sinful things for the pleasure and it pleases these rancid souls that their actions offend decent people.
