Facebook Bans Catholic Ad Featuring Crucifix for Being “Excessively Violent”

Franciscan University of Steubenville says Facebook wouldn’t allow them to run a particular ad on Facebook due to it violating their prohibition of ads that are “shocking, sensational, and excessively violent.”

The ad in question? It featured a San Damiano crucifix.

The twitter account for Franciscan University of Steubenville wrote, “An ad we placed was rejected by Facebook today for content that is ‘shocking, sensational, and excessively violent.’ We must agree with them.”

The ad was likely deemed “excessively violent” by either an algorithm automatically or a person whose job it is to view and approve/reject a very large number of ads.
To Facebook, Christ is offensive.
