Father John Higgins wrote a message on Dem Rep Lucille Roybal-Allard’s Facebook page on May 23rd. Facebook wasn’t happy. Father Higgins included historical facts in his message. Historical facts are incapable with the liberal PC agenda.
Here is Father Higgins offending post
Facebook felt like they were left with no choice but to remove the comment and ban Father Higgins as punishment for speaking the truth.
“I wrote Facebook several times,” Fr. Higgins told ChurchPOP, “explaining that this post was just history. Of course there was no response.”
Greg Stone is a colleague of Father Higgins and works for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in conflict resolution. Stone wrote a passionate Facebook message calling out Facebook for failing to honor their pledge to stop censoring historical facts and different viewpoints.
“It is horribly ironic that the very week Islamists murder scores of innocents,” Stone’s post read in part, “—young girls at a pop concert in Manchester, Coptic Christians in Egypt, and Catholics in the Philippines—Facebook suspends the privileges of a respected clergy member for posting an academic synopsis regarding Islamic history. FB spikes the very information the community needs to understand current events.”
This is not the first time Facebook has been in hot water over their systematic censoring of conservative and historically factual viewpoints.
Last year, Facebook was accused of having systematically censored viewpoints considered to be conservative. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg denied the charges and met personally with conservative leaders to reassure them that Facebook will remain open to differing viewpoints.
Thankfully, Father Higgins was only banned for a week and is once again allowed to post.
On May 30th, his week-long suspension over, Fr. Higgins posted again on Facebook: “I’m back. That was a week? LOL”.
However, for how long? It's trickier than one might think for sane people to consciously omit facts from their everyday conversations. But, try explaining that to the liberal snowflakes endlessly whining on about how “fake news” and “Russia” are the reasons Killary lost her bid to finally stick it to Bill and be top dog in the White House.

some people just can’t handle the truth! …and the POPE is one of them, can’t handle the truth
Father Higgins is my hero of today.
The Good Priest got it exactly right, and Facebook has much to be ashamed of.
Why because it’s not what the pope is saying
He is not a priest. He is a racist republican who claims to be a man of God. Facebook was right to ban him and shame on him for misrepresenting good Christian people.
I support the office of the president. The fact is our choice for president in the last election was between two sleezey people. Thump won the election and if we do not like his policies we can vote him out in three years. My position on health care, abortion and education are closer to Bernie Sanders then either Trump or Clintons. We need to focus on matters of policy and get rid of the name calling.
