Facebook Bans Fox Commentator Over Conservative, Christian Content

Popular conservative Fox News commentator Todd Starnes (shown) was banned for a short while by Facebook June 28 and 29 after he posted content the social media site's administrators said violated its community standards. The posting on his Facebook fan page that supposedly earned Starnes a 12-hour sit in the website's penalty box read: “I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gaither Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.”

The Facebook police responded by removing the post and temporarily locking up important features on Starnes' fan page, explaining to him: “We removed this from Facebook because it violates ...

"community standards"

What "standards?" From Sodom and Gomorra?

Facebook and Twitter are ran by the government. Stay away from them.

To be fair about this issue I didn't report it but a few times and gave thinking anythng goes so to speak and we are allowed to post comments, jokes about diffent things including religious..that's why I like it..I can use it to help hurting people..who ask for prayer..to bring encouragement.to me also. Like someone said maybe the squeaky wheel gets the most attention..Madelan O'Hara is a good example of that.

jpw, you should realize that The Church in the Political Process is that it shouldn't be. Yes, if so-called Christians are so interested in politics instead of spreading the Word, let them start up conservative branches of the Unitarian, UCC, or United Methodist Churches -- by the way they won't conservative for long, because they have strayed from God!

Brother US -- its the evangelical church who will not cover the beheadings... once it is out and Christians begin to realize this show has been at their expense for years.... they will begin to make account to their own spiritual leaders...hence the exodus of many churches. one by one people are seeing what is happening... meanwhile I'm hearing of Christians watching their beloved ones getting beheaded, still praying that the American church will repent and that there is hope for us.

by the way, more media blackout...many beheadings going on in Egypt. Praying for the true church of Christ.
I would say the story, which is not a Fox News story, only makes the New American because the guy is some popular guy on Fox News. I have no idea, I never heard of him before. I don't watch Fox News. It seems to me a story about Facebook blocking a person using their service does NOT rank up there with stories about journalist being tracked or killed. (more like Chris said, slow news day) It is a shame that the media does not cover the many beheadings going on in Egypt more than likely to not make Islam appear to be what it is. Someone must be or jpw could not make a comment about it.

Likely the admission of a "mistake" was brought about by sufficient noise made by "friends." Squeaky wheel and all that.

I would venture to guess that worse things get posted on fb with extreme frequency, but probably most people just delete or ignore such things, as Delores did, instead of flagging them for the fb police. I agree fb should be given the benefit of the doubt when they say it was a mistake. There is no reason not to believe them. But I think it is sad that this is actually a story. Must be a slow news cycle

It is the facebook site and they indeed set the rules, but he didn't violate any of the rules they stated. So, yes as Chris points out they were in their rights to do what they did, but as Dolores points out far more offensive statements appear on the website that does violate their rules and is not censored by them. They did apologize and said it was a mistake, so think we should give them benefit of the doubt, but do wonder if others have faced the same issue and just don't have a national following to point it out.

This is unbelievalble!! I can't tell you how many times I've had to delete remarks which included the f word and b word and games that used such sexual innuendos that I no longer could play them! I've dropped friends that would use such vile language as they would argue with their friends in anger over personal things that were posted to read by all their friends. David Whilkerson talked about Persucation Madness in one chapter of his book called The Vision written in 1972 and I'm watching all the events he said was coming happening now right before my eyes.He also wrote The Cross and the Switchblade...Pat Boone played him in the movie.

My preemptive strike, before folks start howling about the first amendment. Ahem, "CONGRESS shall make no law....." So unless Facebook = Congress, they were well within their rights.
