FAIL! Another Case Of Facebook Censorship!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayWacky, Tacky & TrueTech Talk

facebook shuts down same sex kiss in event planned to take place in front of pope

Facebook has self-censored once again by shutting down a same-sex kiss-in event, which was planned for Pope Benedict XVI's arrival in Spain next month.

The page promoting the same-sex kissing Flashmob had gotten 12,000 users confirmed for the event, which was scheduled to take place in Cathedral Square in Barcelona on November 7.

No word yet on how this will affect the actual event.

You can say what you want about the event's content, but the fact is this marks another case of censorship by Facebook, and it's directed at the gay community, which is NOT cool.

What do U think about Facebook's censorship of this event?

Update: A Facebook rep has reached out to PerezHilton.com and informed us of the reasoning behind taking down the profile. Turns out that "The event in question no longer appears on Facebook because it was connected to a fake profile that was shut down. Fake profiles are in violation of our terms."

And there you have it.

    But what if it's the KKK or a Republican trying to get attention at a gay event. Come on be real? Its the pope. The even was def to stirr something. Regardless what people joke about the catholic, I am not catholic, but there is some respect you have to give.



  2. 2

    I get what you are saying MARIO , but if it was a hetero event would you care?



  3. 3

    I am Catholic, and what is the point of this? Catholics have nothing against gays themselves, but the acts which they perform. So? Who wants to see gay people kissing in public??? Who wants to see STRAIGHT people Kissing in public??? NOT MEEE… save the shit for the house…

    this is just a desperate cry for attention, and it's making people think twice about gay people and their actual motives.. these flash mobs are so stupid, and only make the people in them look stupid….

    If you WANT respect, then SHOW respect… and if you DONT CARE about what others think about your sexual orientation, then don't bring that shit to where the POPE is going to be…. no wonder people are getting sick of hearing about GAYS and their issues…. they are constantly being SHOVED in everyones faces….

    I am catholic and when it comes to the gays to each his own, but for you to blatently want to disrespect the pope in that manner, by doing that, i mean he's the fricken pope for crying outloud. The gays want everyone to jump in w/ their beliefs and respect them and blah blah blah, well then how about they start respecting others SUCH AS THE POPE!



  5. 5

    woooooooooooooooooah hold on since when does same sex kissing mean you gay.



  6. 6

    You know, the fact that they consider doing a kiss-in in front of the Pope is ridiculous and rude. I'm all for gay rights and think gay people are awesome, but no need to throw it in the Catholics' faces that most don't support gay relationships, especially someone as religious as the Pope. I never hear stories of straight people crashing gay events and acting obnoxious there. Come one.

    GOOD AND FINE WITH ME YOU FAT ASS MARIO



  8. 8

    im 100% for gay marriage and equality for all what not but the Pope is a representation of the Catholic religion and they simply do not believe in homosexuality. I'm not saying that's right but it is the way it is and it will just upset people, like the man who wanted to burn the Islamic book ( i can't remember the name) down in Florida. Just disrespectful.



  9. 9

    ENOUGH with thinking it's the whole world against you and the gays. I'm all for gay rights, but this is common sense- IT'S INAPPROPRIATE AND DISRESPECTFUL. Just because FB censored this doesn't mean FB itself is homophobic, either. If you want people to take gay rights seriously, stop sounding like such a sensationalist idiot who cries "HOMOPHOBIA" or HATE CRIME every time some ridiculous, stupid-as-shit same sex-kiss session in front of the pope is canceled or a coward commits suicide because he wasn't able to deal with the reality of high school.

    Stop being so fucking ignorant.



  10. 10

    ahhh so many typos



  11. 11

    Wait… do any of you read history? if Catholics were to be in power it would be no different than the Islam nation, stoning, beatings and killings to suppress the natural feelings of human beings, women would have no right to speak and would be hung and speared for disrespecting the hubby, so before you speak about you not wanting to see people kiss, just try being more human and full in love because this is purely what its about, and the respect of other people in this world, Opinions are like assholes and we all have them but to say that you don't want to see gays or straights kiss no matter what is a personal sexual problem from within, to say that Catholics don't hate gays just their actions is a oxymoron, just because you dress a turkey don't hide the fact that you have a dead animal on your dinner table, stop living a dream and wake up! oppressing anyone just never works out and the Pope may have good intentions but he first needs to stop these priest from poking little boys, fix that first before you can tell others how to live, now what?



  12. 12

    Re: HOLYJEEBUS – I agree.



  13. 13

    It's a private company, they can do whatever the hell they want! If you don't like it, don't use it!



  14. 14

    Disrespectful to the pope because it's shoving their behavior in his face? Because the Catholics have never been intrusive about their crap?



  15. 15

    theyre a private organization, they can do whatever the fuck they want



  16. 16

    I agree with you. I'm sick of them rubbing it my face. I don't care what you do behind closed doors. They want you to except them no matter what. They have their rights, but so do us people who don't care for their exhibition. They over do it. If FB wants to censor it. It's their choice.



  17. 17

    i



  18. 18

    yet you support them and have fb stuff all over your sites,
    if you are so against fb & what they're doing then dont use fb



  19. 19

    Im not with the church neither the Pope. But I know what he represents for many people, and to just promote and do an event to simply insult the guy and the thousand of followers is not right. This is the reason why many persons cant take "gay" people seriously. Why cant some of them just behave like most and try to have a plain normal life?. Got to do a sexual issue about everything?.



  20. 20

    Re: NunaBeba – I dont give a fuck what you do behind close doors wither honey, but its probably pretty sad



  21. 21

    Re: bleahf – The pope CONDEMNS gays, that's why, hello anyone home?



  22. 22

    The CAtholic Bible clearly, unequivocally states that Homosexuals should be put to DEATH and that is a FACT, but put simply american catholics wouldn't know, having never read perhaps more than one page. Gratitude to the non religious politicians who said that killing another human being is evil, Oh, so does the bible but that doesn't apply to gays.



  23. 23

    are you kidding? this is a real immature mentality. im tired of this nonsense. wahhh, christians wont accept the gays, wahh. No, they wont! And its not "homophobic" to have a faith in God and believe the Bible.
    Were not all shoving the bible down your throat, so why must you shove your sexual pref down ours? We show respect for the person, but not their lifestyle, so why dont you show the pope some respect?

    Its very inappropriate behavior.



  24. 24

    Great. Will they all be sticking there tongues out in defiance after the kiss?
    Silly and very, very immature and irresponsible.
    Way to go, gays.

  25. Rosh says – reply to this


    25

    How would you feel if something you were completely against got thrown in your face?

    I support same sex marriage and all but damn its called respect.



  26. 26

    Re: FiveStarFreddie – wow freddie it seems like you don't know history. i'm muslim, i'm a woman, i'm from an islamic country, i'm a law student, my rights are just the same as men, i walk around freely, without a head scarf, i have a right to speak, to work and to do whatever i want, i can divorce if i want to so long as there are merits to divorce, i have never felt oppressed, the men in my family encourage me and respect me and vice versa. i have the same opportunity as my brother. and no my parents are not one of those liberal muslims, they are pretty religious. so dude do more reading. there's a difference between islam and culture. all that shit u read,terrorisms etc = psycho individuals/sexist individuals. it does not represent islam at all. read the quran and you'll know.
    2nd of all, i have nothing against the gay community but i think if u want respect show respect. what you're doing is just the same as what hitler did to the jews. oppressing them.



  27. 27

    Pot, meet kettle. Perez, I've been censored on your site dozens of times. You're a fucking tool. Censor that you bitch!!

  28. china says – reply to this


    28

    a kiss-in in front of the pope? which retard came up with such a brillant idea?
    it`s NOT directed at the gay community, it`s more likely banned due to bad taste - no matter gay or hetero. i`m not into religion at all, but show some fucking respect. if you want some, show some.



  29. 29

    people commenting on here have ALOT to say about the bible and the catholic religion but it sounds like most of them have NO idea what they are talking about. it sounds like most of you are talking about the catholic religion from an extremest perspective. HEEEELLOOOO!! a large MAJORITY of the catholic church doesnt have extremist views such as you are expressing. one person directly quoted the bible but if you actually knew ANYTHING about the catholic faith you would know we are taught not to take everything in the bible literally bc 1. the bible, while believed to be inspired by god, was written by MAN. and humans make mistakes. when the bible was written man had the free will to choose what he wanted and didnt want to put in the bible. 2. the bible was written how long ago!!? of course it has crazy views about EVERYTHINGG!! bc most people had them views back then. come on its 2010…cant we stop worrying about what the bible says and focus on our ACTUAL LIVES!?

    i do not believe in many of the things the catholic church stands for nor do many other catholics. but if you want respect you need to show respect. this isnt even just disrespectful for the fact thats its the same sex kissing…its disrespectful bc of the kissing whether same or opposite sex!!! think about it, if youre parents were coming in to town you wouldnt start hardcore making out with youre bf/gf would you??! NO! bc its DISRESPECTFUL AND RUDE!! get a clue!



  30. 30

    i am catholic.i have gone to catholic school for all of my life, straight through college. with that said i do not believe in nearly half of the things the Roman Catholic church stands for. i am in 100% support of gays and their rights, yet this event sounds completely disrespectful!! While yes, the pope may believe that acting upon being gay is wrong, he is still considered a very strong beacon of faith, hope, and peace by people all over the world and this is so disrespectful, immature, and rude to him and all of the people that love and support him. while he may not support you being gay, he still does many GOOD things all around the world

    Re: Samantha Sweeney
    You said - "cant we stop worrying about what the bible says and focus on our ACTUAL LIVES!?"
    -
    Whether you're Catholic or Protestant, adhering to the tenants of the bible is central to Christianity. You can't just say "stop worrying about what the bible says" and seriously consider yourself a Christian. I'm not knocking you or your faith, but that statement is absurd.



  32. 32

    I'm glad this is gettin stopped as much as possible. All the gays want to whine and cry because no body approves of them….we approve you dumb shits! Just quit being ignorant about it. If you are gay, you are gay. There is no need to kiss in front of the pope to prove it. We believe you; you like getting it up the bum. BIG EFFIN DEAL, so do a bunch of sluts i know!!! Being disrespectful will get you people nowhere…in fact it will set your people back decades! What if a bunch of fat people wanted to kiss in front of the pope and their page got stopped…same shit different day. Get over yourselves! Half of you are just doin it for attention anyways!



  33. 33

    im gay and catholic and find this in very poor taste..YES GAY AND CATHOLIC..



  34. 34

    Re: HOLYJEEBUS – I AGREE!



  35. 35

    for all of you who dont' see a problem with the gay people showing disrespect and kissing infront of the pope… why not go a step further and give blow jobs, or eat out your girlfriend??? why not??? it's an expression of Love as you claim!?!?!?

    come on you fucktards, this is DISRESPECT plain and simple, stop trying to dis Catholics….. like another poster said, we aren't living back when Jesus did right now, and stop taking the bible so damn literally….

    now as I said before, with these gay people showing disprespect, how do they ever expect anyone to accept or show respect to them when they don't???

    Do they have brains??? why aren't they using them?



  36. 36

    Wow…Mario (Mario's sister…b/c we all know Perez doesn't write his own posts anymore)

    How LOW can u get. I haven't been to your site in awhile b/c I was sick of the Gay OBSESSION & I read this & am absolutely disgusted. Aren't YOU Catholic!?!?!

    To disrespect the Pope like that…ridiculous & the fact that you report on this is so low.

    IF YOU want RESPECT, show SOME for God's sake!!!!!



  37. 37

    THE PROBLEM IS NOT AN ISSUE OF RESPECT FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHICH HAS ALWAYS AND CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN A TRACK RECORD OF HATEFUL AND BIGOTED SPEECH AND SUPPORT TOWARD MANY MINORITIES INCLUDING THE LGBT COMMUNITY, BUT IN THE FACT THAT THEY FIND IT OFFENSIVE FOR MEN TO KISS.

    * THE ACCEPTED VIEWPOINT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS ONE OF CONDEMNATION TOWARD HOMOSEXUALITY(ACT AND IDENTITY)
    * IT IS CONTRADICTORY TO SAY ONE HAS "NOTHING AGAINST GAY PEOPLE" BUT BELIEVES THEIR ACTIONS AND LIFESTYLE TO BE WRONG. SEXUALITY IS A DEFINITION OF WHO SOMEONE IS, THE FOUNDATION OF WHO ONE BECOMES, AND WHAT DRIVES US TO OUR FUTURE. IT IS A POINTLESS TIGHT ROPE TO WALK TO SAY ONE ACCEPTS ONLY PARTS OF A PERSON THAT ONE AGREES WITH.
    *IF JESUS WERE ATTENDING ON THE 7TH, WHICH I'M SURE HE WOULDN'T, HE WOULD MOST LIKELY BE ON THE SIDE OF THOSE DEMONSTRATING AFFECTION, ACCEPTANCE, AND LOVE, NOT HATE, CHILD MOLESTATION AND MAN MADE TRADITION OF WHICH HE WAS 100000% OPPOSED. (AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT LIKING HOMOSEXUALITY TO PEDOPHILIA, WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SEXUALITY AND ALL TO DO WITH POWER. STRAIGHT CAUCASIAN MEN ARE MORE LIKELY TO MOLEST A CHILD THAN A GAY MAN ANY DAY OF THE MILLENNIA. )

    AND COMPAIRING THE LGBT COMMUNITY TO REPUBLICANS AND THE KKK IS IGNORANT. REALLY! REALLY? REALLY. COME NOW.

    STAY STRONG GAY AND STRUGGLING TEENS, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. YOU ARE FINE JUST THE WAY YOU ARE.

    OH AND FUCK FB.



  38. 38

    Re: Gquality – HAHA keep spouting shit out your ass.. saying that being GAY has nothing to do with sexuality and ALL to do with power, are you fucking kidding? If this is the case then why ARE they wanting to KISS in front of the Pope???? Also, if being gay has nothing to do with sexuality but power, then why is PEREZ who is an OPEN GAY make SEXUAL comments all the time regarding posts that have NOTHING to do with sex???

    DO you think writing in CAPS is going to make people accept your comment???

    NOT EVERYONE has to agree with the GAY LIFESTYLE!!! get it through your thick skull. It's like ME saying YOU HAVE TO AGREE WITH CATHOLICISM which you CLEARLY do not… see what a stupid comment that is?? YOU MAKE NO SENSE!

    NOT everyone wants to see people KISSING in public whether it be STRAIGHT or GAY!!!
    ok????????? GET IT??? or are you stupid?



  39. 39

    Re: FiveStarFreddie – as for 'poking little boys' obviously that is something that needs to be addressed. it is wrong and disgusting. the vatican needs to do a better job and stop trying to cover shit up. that being said.. i don't believe that just becasue some priests are sickos that the pope should have to witness anything that he doesn't believe in. how is that even dignified? and how does that make anyone want to take homosexuality seriously?



  40. 40

    Re: Myzaree – catholics are A LOT less intrusive about their beliefs than other christian denominations. shoving shit in the faces of non catholics isn't really our style… the catholics are more about being intrusive when it comes to other catholics… just f.y.i.



  41. 41

    Re: Samantha Sweeney – very well said.



  42. 42

    Re: NunaBeba – Unintentionally hilarious comment. What have they been rubbing in your face exactly??!!
    Double entendre? I'll give you one.



  43. 43

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ

    Exactly. We all know how Perez would react if it was 12,000 straight people kissing and flashing their wedding rings at a gay rally…why is this any different?



  44. 44

    I think the Spanish will make it cute. It helps that they are all good-looking! It's only a bit of kissing for Pete's sake.
    The funniest part of any Gay pride March is when the parade gets past the God-botherers who are all shouting 'Burn in Hell', and the gays always have a silly chant or get their bums out. It's just a little bit funny, isn't it?



  45. 45

    you can't force the rest of the heterosexuals to accept everything about homosexuality. you want to be with the same sex, then do it, and stop bothering the rest of us. we sure don't force you to be a heterosexual. :P

    i agree with #1.



  46. 46

    Re: Samantha Sweeney – then u have your own religion honey. if u dont beleive in half the things the catholics say. You are not a catholic. Jesus Fkuc.
