Father Gordon has never seen his own FaceBook page but others post on his behalf. Content from TheseStoneWalls has been very popular on TheseStoneWalls FaceBook page. Posts from TSW have been very popular there especially with Catholic FaceBook “Groups”. There are people who post dozens of times a day elsewhere on FaceBook on their own pages, but nothing had been posted on my behalf for well over two days.
FaceBook blocked the graphic above from being posted on the following groups:
- Roman Catholic Republicans Faithful to the Church
- Catholic Pro-Life
- Priests for Life
- Catholic News Agency
- Catholic News and Discussion
- Sensus Fidelium
- Catholic Writers
- Catholic Media
- Catholic Fellowship on Facebook
- One Million Connected Catholics
- Catholic Strong
- Catholic Spiritual Warfare in Today’s World
- The Catholics Writers Guild
- …including many others such as FoxNews Groups, etc.
Even just two or three of the above have a readership of over 1/2 million followers.
The reason FaceBook gave is:
“FaceBook must place limits on how often you can post.”
FaceBook invited Father Gordon MacRae to make a rebuttal, which is as follows:
“FaceBook has been criticized for limiting or blocking conservative content. This is an example.”
The specific post being blocked in this very popular article by Father MacRae:
Was front page of The Big PULPIT on this Thursday past. However, we need YOU to share this as much as you can to get out the truth, those of you especially who have internet audiences.
Statement from Father Gordon J. MacRae:
- “I may be the only priest free enough to write this. The Leftist Mobs cannot throw me in jail. They can only block me on FaceBook.”
I was with our famous church secretary the other day (a witness!) when a call came in on my cell phone (an Android with all the google stuff) from friends of Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest (in the parish). Kilmer died young in World War I by way of sniper fire. He was perhaps the most famous Catholic poet of his day. The guy on the phone wants me to give a kind of eulogy for Kilmer on July 30 2018 coming up. I’ll meet up with him today.
After my phone call with him was over, like only about 30 seconds later, a notification came in my phone. Google location whatever it is wanted my opinion not just on Nantahala National Forest, but specifically on Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. Really?
So, they surveil all phone calls, turning them into text and shoving that txt through their algorithms. Wow. That’s information for sale, right? FaceBook lost over 100 Billion dollars overnight just now because of these kind of shenanigans. Let’s see what happens with almighty Google. Isn’t this wiretapping? But, as it is, this is much more valuable to that which Snowden was against. Google’s free to go, I would say. Heck, Google just hands all this stuff over just to do it.
Anyway, I don’t have tracking turned on. I don’t have location turned on. I don’t want to give any opinions about locations to Google. I certainly don’t want to give Google opinions about phone calls I make right after I make them. I don’t know how to shut all that off. It seems anything relevant is already off. They don’t seem to give the option not to give opinions except when Google asks the question.
Anyway, I don’t care so much for myself. My life is so very very very much an open book forever and ever. But other people might care for their own business models, and whatever. Information is gold as business people say. It seems the Constitution of these USA means absolutely nothing, not to business freakoids, not to law enforcement up top.
