Facebook, Oh Facebook XVI.


Facebook banned God, who has over 3 million followers, for the above post. Facebook God is a progressive sort of god, and I guess that got up some FB angel’s nose.

While God might not be safe from the wrath of Facebook, his swift reinstatement shows that hell hath no fury like millions of social media fans who want their deity back.

Last week, God – the verified Facebook page with more than three million followers – posted the following: “Dear Americans, Stop making your military so damn huge and give people medicine and education because you’re sick and stupid. Thanks, God.”

Two days later, God was slapped with a 30-day ban.

God, being God, wasn’t having it though. “I posted this opinion on the day it was announced that Obamacare will be defunded and 24 million people will lose their healthcare,” he said in an article on Good. “The opinion goes viral, gaining over 100,000 likes and 15,000 shares. A few hundred people disagree with the opinion. Rather than move on, or even use the ‘angry’ reaction face, what do they do? They report the opinion as being offensive.”


“Today I was notified by FB that My Account has been restored! THANK YOU, HUMANS! I am sure that the huge response from you yesterday was the difference in achieving this so quickly,” God wrote.

    Facebook’s doing a great job at the Gleichschaltung* in vorauseilendem Gehorsam**

    *Historical term for how the Nazis made each and every institution a Nazi institution: schools, sports clubs, professional organisations…

    **German term meaning “complying with an anticipated order that has not actually been given yet”

    Oh, I’m sure irreligious billionaires will be just fine without having to convert. If anything Trump has shown that all you need to be a darling to the Christian right is a big wallet with a few loose bills and some kind words for their crusades against women, children, poor people, …

    … Obama, …

    … other faiths, …

    … and you’ll do just fine.

    Perhaps it would have been shorter to write, ‘say something vile and hateful’.
