MILWAUKEE, Wis., -- Christian News Service -- Like David triumphing over Goliath, Project Wildfire, a small Wisconsin based ministry took on Facebook and against all odds, defeated the Social media Giant in the battle against the mocking FB page "Virgin Mary Should've Aborted."Wednesday Facebook removed the controversial anti-Christian page entitled "Virgin Mary Should've Aborted" at the request of the group and thousands of concerned Christians.
"We want to extend our thanks to Facebook for its response, despite the tremendous pressure they must have felt from the LGBT/Atheist community,"said Cary Bogue, founder of Project Wildfire. "We believe they responded appropriately. While it may have been a bitter pill to swallow, they stepped up and did the right thing and we will not take that credit away from them."
In response to the derogatory page, Bogue created Catholics & Protestants Against FB Religious Discrimination that quickly gained support from concerned Christians. He also conducted a #StopFBAntiChristianBias tweetfest event.
"We want to thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who was our inspiration behind this stand we took against the "Virgin Mary Should've Aborted" Facebook page," said Cary Bogue, founder of Project Wildfire. "We are not only pleased that this mockery of Christ was removed but, along with our Catholic friends, we are also grateful that the Blessed Virgin Mary mother of Jesus, was finally shown the respect she deserves as well."
Within 24 hours of the removal of the page, another anti-Christian page was created in its place entitled "Virgin Mary STILL Should've Aborted." Bogue is confident Facebook will remove it as well.
"We don't believe they want to go through this again," said Bogue. "A decision has clearly been made at the management level to keep this anti-Christian discriminatory hate speech from being on Facebook."
