Facebook Censors Santa kneeling at the manger, Jesus Christ, as ‘violent’

Facebook censorship made a bizarre turn recently as a reported post with over 11,000 shares dating back to 2015 was given a blackout notice with this warning: “This photo may show violent or graphic content.”

The image in question?

A painting of Santa Claus kneeling at the manger, worshiping the newborn baby Jesus.

When the photo was uncovered, the caption read, “This photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it.”

Check it out below.

Two Facebook users posted the painting within the last 4 hours, and both times the image was covered up.

Facebook Community Standards give reasons for putting a warning screen on certain posts. “We include a warning screen so that people are aware the content may be disturbing,” say the guidelines. “We also limit the ability to view the content to adults, ages eighteen and older.” The images censored include, “Imagery featuring mutilated people,” “photos of wounded or dead people,” “dismembered animals,” “animal abuse,” “child abuse,” “violent death,” “torture,” “physical bullying,” and “grievous injury.” Images of fetuses and birthing are also labelled “so that people are aware the content may be sensitive.”

At the time of this publishing, it did NOT happen to me as I republished said photo, so maybe the issue has been resolved.
