It's no secret that social media sites like Facebook and Youtube have been censoring conservative and Christian voices for quite some time, however, even we never thought they would take it this far.
Breitbart reported that Facebook just vetoed a photo of the Vatican's annual nativity scene saying the image violated it's policy against “sexually suggestive or provocative” images. Yes, you read that correctly, Facebook has dubbed the nativity scene "sexually provocative."
The ad featuring the image was rejected with Facebook giving the following explanation: “Your ad can’t include images that are sexually suggestive or provocative.”
While the man in the image is indeed naked, he is covering all of the areas that one would think would violate Facebook's policy. When scrolling down a Facebook newsfeed, there are plenty of bikini-clad women and men wearing short-shorts that are showing off far more skin than the man in this painting. On top of that, we can't imagine anyone getting "turned on" by this image, which is meant to show a sacred moment of Christianity.
We have a feeling that Facebook knew exactly what it was doing here, and that vetoing this image actually had nothing to do with nudity.
