Facebook Bans Christmas Ad From Christ Centered Games
Christmas Guide

First they came for the big anime titties, then they waged war on the lolis,  followed by an attack on free speech, and now they’ve come for Christmas.

The culture war seems to be expanding faster than Jim Sterlings’ pants during Thanksgiving dinner, and now this disastrous calamity has extended its blight-drenched grip to Christ Centered Games.

That’s right, you can’t even be a good, moral, God-fearing gaming outlet without being dragged into the trenches of the menstrual mercenaries’ condemnation of traditional Western values.

Christ Centered Games learned this firsthand when attempting to purchase an ad on Facebook to promote a Christmas-themed buyer’s guide. However, they were met with the cold, hard, stiff, scythe of the anti-Christmas spirit. Cheryl Gress, the editor-in-chief at Christ Centered Games, posted up a screenshot of the e-mail she received from Facebook on December 14th, 2018, denying them the right to advertise a Christmas buyer’s guide.

Now the trick to the e-mail is that they don’t use the words “permanent” or “ban” in the text, but the subtext leaves little wiggle room for any other interpretations. If you’re unable to read the message in the tweet, the e-mail states…

“Thanks for writing in to us. I took a look at your account and noticed that the content advertised by this ad is prohibited. We reserve the right to determine what advertising we accept, and we may choose to not accept ads containing or relating to certain products or services and will not allow the creation of any further Facebook Ads for this product. We appreciate your cooperation with this policy.”

So just to clarify: They will not be accepting any more ads related to the Christmas buying guide that Gress wanted to advertise for Christ Centered Games, which – if you couldn’t tell by the name – is a Christian themed gaming outlet that doesn’t let the morality of Christianity dictate their overall objectivity when reviewing games. So not only are they choosing not to accept the ads related to the guide, they also will not allow the creation of any further ads related to the guide.

So how bad is the ad that it must be permanently prohibited from appearing on Facebook? Well, you can check out the proposed ad in the image below:

Most people are probably wondering what the guide is like if it’s so offensive that Facebook would permanently prohibit it from being advertised on the platform. Well, you can check out the 2018 Christmas Buying Guide and judge it for yourself.

It’s literally just a list of games for different platforms with links to the reviews of the games/hardware.

Some people asked Gress why she thinks Facebook banned the ad, and she pondered about it either being that it’s an out-and-out Christmas guide or because they sometimes call out LGBTQ content in games.

Regardless of how you cut the custard, it’s quite telling that Facebook didn’t want anything Christmas related on the platform and have banned an ad from a Christian themed gaming website promoting a Christmas shopping guide.

These are strange times indeed.
