Facebook recently declared war on Christianity after they unfairly targeted several Christian groups.
According to the Catholic News Agency and Breitbart News, dozens of conservative Catholic pages were blocked over a 24 hour period.
Some of the blocked pages even had millions of followers and were blocked because of “suspicious activities.”

“One of the blocked English-language fanpages was ‘Jesus and Mary’, which had 1.7 million followers. The page’s main cover photo was of the sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary,” explained CNA.
Conservative Tribune reports:
In the case of that conservative-leaning page, the page’s administrator was locked out of his personal account at the same time. He was reportedly asked to upload a photo of himself to verify his identity.
After doing what Facebook requested, the admin was able to access his personal account… but he was told that the Catholic page with nearly 2 million followers had been disabled.
Administrators of dozens of conservative religious pages indicated that they weren’t optimistic about having the pages they worked so hard to build restored.
“It is extremely heartbreaking”said Kenneth Alimba, the administrator of “Catholic and Proud,” a Facebook page with a major following of six million people. “It’s too horrible,” he continued.
Another Catholic page admin named Godwin Delali Adadzie explained how devastating Facebook’s actions are to his page.
“The page happens to be the most effective means of driving traffic to my Catholic websites and blogs,” he said. “I am also a blogger and a writer, and in writing, without readers which requires quality traffic, your writing or blogging will be useless.”
Well this is certainly suspect. What's going on with Facebook and dozens of Catholic pages? https://t.co/idsOIiLTeo

Facebook’s move would make sense if they only targeted smaller pages, but they went after several large ones.
“Another blocked English-language page is ‘Fr. Rocky,’ belonging to U.S. priest Fr. Francis J. Hoffman, executive director of Relevant Radio, whose page had 3.5 million likes. Fr. Hoffman could not be reached for comment by press time,” CNA stated.
What do you think about this? Should Facebook undo the changes?
