Update: Facebook blames ‘technical glitch’
(CNA/EWTN News).- In the last 24 hours more than twenty Catholic pages, some with millions of followers, have been blocked by Facebook for unknown reasons.
Of the known affected pages, 21 are based in Brazil, and four are English-language pages, with administrators in the U.S. and Africa. Most of the blocked pages had significant followings – between hundreds of thousands and up to 6 million followers each.
One of the blocked English-language fanpages was “Jesus and Mary”, which had 1.7 million followers. The page’s main cover photo was of the sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Page administrator Godwin Delali Adadzie, a Ghanaian, told CNA he was on Facebook around 8 p.m. Central July 17 when he was asked to upload a photo of himself because his personal account had been “suspected of suspicious activities,” he said.
After several minutes, he was allowed back into his personal account, which had notifications informing him that his “Jesus and Mary” page had been disabled. He said every person who was approved as an editor on his page had to go through the same process.
Adadzie said he reviewed Facebook’s policies “and, honestly, I do not see any that I have violated in order for my page to be withdrawn.”
He has sent two appeals to Facebook but has yet to get a response.
Another blocked English-language page is “Catholic and Proud”, which had 6 million followers. Page administrator Kenneth Alimba of Nigeria told CNA his page was also blocked without explanation.
He has sent appeals to Facebook but is “not optimistic” about a response. He also told CNA that he noticed other Catholic Facebook pages that he runs, with fewer followers, are still online.
Pathetic! Google’s featured WRONG result for the search “Ten Commandments” last Friday night and early Saturday morning making reference to “The ten commandments mentioned in the Quran,” not the Bible.
Btw, Quran has NO Ten Commandments. It has Hadith – the alleged sayings of Muhammad compiled more than hundred years after his death.
After getting complaints, Google’s Featured Result for “Ten Commandments” has changed, and no longer refers only to the Quran.
Below is Featured result at the top of the Google search page:
God and patriotism: two predictable things that would trigger a liberal into a frothing in the mouth episode anytime, any day, anywhere. And the rogue President Trump is doing both – full display of patriotism and full display of his prayer warriors praying for hi inside the oval office.
From Fox News:
( Fox News ) An intimate moment during a meeting between President Trump and evangelical leaders earlier this week is now going viral.
Photos posted by some of the attendees of the Monday meeting show the group during a prayer session, laying their hands on Trump’s shoulders as his head is bent in prayer.
The picture was posted by Johnnie Moore, a former senior vice president at Liberty University, a large evangelical university in Virginia.
“Really wonderful visit with President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Pence after a hugely productive day-long-meeting with evangelical leaders and the Office of Public Liaison,” Moore posted on Facebook.
Vatican police have broken up a gay orgy at the home of the secretary to one of Pope Francis’s key advisers, it has been claimed.
The flat belonged to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, or Holy Office, which is in charge of tackling sexual abuse amongst the clergy.
Reports in Italy claim the occupant of the apartment is the secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio – a key aide to the 80-year-old Pope.
Coccopalmerio heads the Pontifical Council for Legislative texts and was said to have once recommended his secretary for a promotion to bishop.
The claims about the police raid last month were made in the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano.
The flat involved is a short distance from the Vatican itself.
According to the paper, neighbours became suspicious before complaining about irregular behaviour of those coming and going at the flat.
When police showed up, they reportedly found drugs and a group of men engaged in sexual activity.
It is the latest scandal to hit the Vatican and comes after its finance chief Cardinal George Pell was charged with historical sexual offences.
- Pastor Shahram Hadian: “The next time I give a presentation, if someone gets offended, are they going to report me?..Obviously it’s moving toward Shariah compliance. This is what Europe has done.”
- Hadian said the Minneapolis officials will seek to target Christians with the new snitch line.
The city, which will operate the “service” through its 3-1-1 helpline, is targeting any “harassing behaviors motivated by prejudice,” according to a press release. Those wishing to report a hate crime from outside the city may dial 612-673-3000.
According to the local newspaper, the Star-Tribune, “the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.”
The city’s Department of Civil Rights clearly states on its website that it only enforces hate crimes against certain “protected classes.”
A city official further indicated the impetus for the hate-crimes hotline was the election of President Trump and that the targets would be his supporters.
“Since the general election, many of us have experienced, witnessed firsthand or heard of actions of: racism, xenophobia, sexism and bigotry directed at people here and in cities across the United States,” Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights Director Velma Korbel wrote in a statement posted on the city’s website. “In no uncertain terms, hate-motivated speech and actions have no place in Minneapolis nor will they be tolerated.”
….Shahram Hadian, whose family fled Iran in the run-up to the Islamic revolution in 1978, said he was aghast at the Minneapolis hotline.
“This is ultimately what they got passed up in Canada. But this is the backdoor approach to eventually setting up hate speech laws … hate crimes morph into hate speech,” said Hadian, a former law enforcement officer turned pastor who heads Truth In Love Ministries.
Hadian said he has no doubt that the Minneapolis officials will seek to target Christians with the new snitch line.
“Obviously it’s moving toward Shariah compliance. This is what Europe has done,” he said. “You have people arrested there, various examples of it, and charged with crimes for something they said about Islam. So this is a back-door attempt to get hate speech laws on the books and to create the environment of normalcy where you’re going to see Christians turned in to the government because we are either speaking about Christianity or because we’re speaking factually about Islam.
“It’s a violation of our fundamental rights under the First Amendment. That’s chilling, and it’s so disturbing and underhanded what they’re doing, to say, ‘Let’s start turning people in whom we don’t agree with.’”
Hadian said the hotline will have a chilling effect on pastors and lecturers in Minnesota.
“So what, the next time I give a presentation, if someone gets offended, are they going to report me?” he said. “That’s where we’re headed with this.”
Outside of Minneapolis-St. Paul and Duluth, every county in Minnesota voted for Trump in the November general election.

VIDEO: IMAM TAWHIDI: “Do not lie to the nation – our books teach the beheading of people. We have a religion of war.”
The world needs this kind od Muslim, not the radical jihadists! Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi appeared on Australian television to blast the liberal narrative that Islam has nothing to do with extremism.
“How do these young people get radicalized?” asked the Sunrise host.
“For 1400 years we have a religion of war. How did Islam spread from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia all the way to Bosnia? All spread by the sword”
“We need to be very realistic when dealing with this matter,” began Tawhidi, who has frequently come under fire from his fellow Muslims for his pragmatic view of the religion and call for reformation.
In reference to Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, Tawhidi continued, “you have a 22-year-old who gets radicalized over two, three sermons, within a Friday mosque gathering.”
“Now, this age, is an age when someone would expect people to be going out, having fun, but no we have a large number of youth that are being radicalized.”
“This happens because of the books that we have – the Islamic scriptures that we have,” continued Tawhidi. “They push the Muslim youth to believe that if you go out there and you kill the infidel how you will gain paradise.”
Last month, Iman Tawhidi backed controversial Muslim critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s demand that Islamic schools should be closed for security reasons.
Tawhidi is the official Imam of the Islamic Association of Australia. He’d been receiving threats for criticizing Islam, calling for shutting down Muslim schools and allowing only one mosque in Australia. He said he would never have come to Australia if he knew a ‘mosque on every corner’ was being built ( click link – The Daily Mail )
