I really don't think "Facebook" did anything wrong. I'd bet the house that a ton of people would mark anything Kirk produced as spam. Enough people flag it and the system pulls it.


That's how the system is suppose to work.

watch the video and listen to the song -- lyrics with "you can't seal my voice" & "you can't buy my silence" & "you can't keep me quite" -- all this was manufactured.

The controversy is that every scene takes place in the same Subway.

fark Kirk Cameron, that is all.

"Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?"

Trick question. There is no God. Ergo meaningless.

Better question: "Where is good in the midst of tragedy and suffering?"

Well, as I've seen in the wake of recent tragedies the good is, as always, found in the people who help out and pick up the pieces afterwords. People who bring hope and healing to people beset by tragedy are good people whether they believe in a God or not.

Acts > Prayers.

That noted, Youtube and Facebook banning the trailer for Kirk Cameron's upcoming Christian film thingy seems a mite petty on the part of those who clicked "spam" or "scam" or "ham" or whatever. Not to mention shortsighted. There could be unintentional lulz aplenty there. Why would anyone want to deprive the world of that? Not to mention the fact that by doing so you are feeding a man with a perpetual Christian Martyr complex exactly the red meat he likes best.

Thank you!! Fox News, Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Drudge

Yeah, thanks a bunch.

"Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?"

Depends on which god you're referring too I suppose.  And if you can't find a God, see if the Goddess is around to help out.

Yeah.  Pretty much this.  Although I would say that there are enough fundie typed on FB to keep those afloat, so there may have been something to his claim.

Still spammy though.

I just have to say that I am very impressed to hear that Kirk Cameron is going to finally answer the very question of great theological and philosophical import that for centuries has stumped lesser minds like Aquinas, Luther, Leibniz, and Kant.

Because Logic and Reason are "the enemy" and it's more comforting to them to feel all loved and wrapped up in God's Snuggie than it is to question, learn and grow as a person. Which is a pity, not just because we have to suffer thriugh their arrogant righteousness, but also because they miss out on a lot of interesting new ideas.

It definitely was. One of my fundie relatives posted a pic about this the other day that had Kirk with a Facebook "gag" over his mouth, looking distraught (wasn't just a photoshop of a stock Kirk Cameron photo). I don't know the timeline here but it couldn't have been more than 2 or 3 days after the film was "banned".

Persecuted Christian Syndrome is a huge selling point right now. You know, since the US is being attacked from all sides by Satan's minions you know.

I find it odd that the only proof of this supposed "blockade" of his movie came from him and his supporters and, big surprise, Facebook and YouTube "caved" just before the full force of the Internet attempted to prove or disproves of this.

The zombie baby Jesus works in mysterious ways.  You can't explain it, you just have to observe.  For instance, on Friday night I dated a guy for about 30 minutes in a parked car back behind the Rent-A-Center off Twin Forks road.  We broke up before I was able to get off because we saw a cop car that looked like it was approaching our secluded location.  So, my ex sped off before I could even get my pants and shirt back on, and next thing I know, there was an officer knocking on my window.  He asked me for my ID and proof of insurance, I asked him if he was a top or bottom.  Let's just say, he was a bottom.  Things like this are why I have faith.  And I'm sure Kirk Cameron has similar stories to back up his faith.

Sure, Fox News Channel may be the number one rated cable news network, but in my heart, they're just the little guy standing up to the Lamestream Media Giants at the Marxist-Socialist Network of Bull Crap.

That's one of the side effects of sola scriptura. For a tougher challenge, I'd recommend bothering a few Jesuits.

I would have thought there would have been a little more outrage against facebook and youtube on this but I guess as long as fb/youtube censor Christians it is okay.

I'm Christian but I would hate to think that FB and Youtube would so easily ban a Richard Dawkins movie.

Yeah, one of my relatives reposted a poor, persecuted Kirk Cameron story too. But of course none of them ever stopped to consider that they keep spamming facebook with crazy religious right stuff all the time without it getting banninated so maybe it's something else. Like maybe people getting sick of their relatives spamming them with Kirk Cameron documentary trailers.

You'd think with millions of Christians in this country your movie would have more than a "one night only" performance.

Maybe you just suck?  Did you ever consider that?

I'm not sure how a group can claim to be persecuted in a country where 99% of the people in elected office professes to be part of that group.

Um... duh? How else can he nail himself to a cross? "Christians are persecuted! It's clearly demonstrated by the fact that the crappy trailer to my crappy movie has been flagged as spam and bounced off of Facebook and YouTube, and that although all I had to do was call them and tell them that it's being flagged by mistake, I have to somehow spin this into a 'victory' for all Christians!"

He's a self-serving douchebag, nothing more. The fact that he's a religious nutcase is almost secondary to the fact that he's a self-serving douchebag.

Yes, because the automatic flagging system both sites use is out to get Christians. Read "lots of folks flagged his controversial piece of celluloid crap, and he had to beg to get it unflagged." Here's the real question, though:

Do you think his supporters flagged it, specifically so that he could then exploit those systems as "censorship", to add credence to his claims of persecution in his controversial piece of celluloid crap? It's almost as if his attention-craving ass manufactured an ersatz controversy to, oh, I don't know, attract attention...

I honestly think he thinks of himself as a self-styled Templar, a modern Christian warrior fighting against what he perceives as the rise of heresy, apostasy, and atheism that's destroying his God-given country.

The fact that he's just a self-serving douchebag and a religious nutcase, pushing ludicrous crap for other religious nutcases, never occurs to him.
