In an effort to tap into the lucrative children’s market while still complying with existing child safety laws, Facebook introduced a new messaging app for kids under the age of 13 that has fueled the debate about the impact of social media on children.
In what is the umpteenth example of pro-abortion hypocrisy, a New York Times editorial by an abortion activist is calling upon Facebook to censor “fake news” sites like Life News for spreading what she calls “false information” about abortion and its impact on women, the unborn, and society.
Authorities on Facebook have finally bowed to public pressure and have removed a grotesque video depicting a terrified newborn baby being swung by its head and immersed in a bucket of water which they claim is “baby yoga”.
We are sharing the urgent prayer request below from EWTN’s Facebook page:
Urgent prayer request from Sister Monica, Daughter of Charity in Paris: “Members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Syria were kidnapped, along with their wives and children. The children were isolated and put into cages. Adults who do not deny their faith will be decapitated, and their children burned alive in the cages. Let us remain fervently united in prayer, and have as our intention the welfare of all brothers and sisters in our Christian faith who are being held hostage. Mother Mary, please console them, and protect them all from harm! O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” EWTN Prayer Warriors, please share this with everyone you know. Read the rest…
A quick-thinking mother was able to use Facebook to catch a suspected sex offender who was preying upon her 11 year-old daughter by sending him a phony photo to which he sent a shocking – and illegal – response.
When the parents of a 16 year-old girl discovered that her boyfriend was a convicted sex offender, she refused to break up with him, and only did so after they lured him onto a phony Facebook page where he began to send sexually explicit messages.
Those of us who love to keep up with our world via Twitter, Facebook and other social media need to be aware that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is increasing its surveillance of these sites in an attempt to pre-empt any sign of civil unrest in the country.

A new study has found that despite the big promises of the Internet to allow unfettered free speech for all, Christian groups are among the few that are being censored online.
