Weird! Facebook Rejects Jesus' Advert

A Catholic university in Ohio, Franciscan University is pissed because Facebook rejected one of its ad insisting (strangely) that it was ‘shocking, sensational and excessively violent’.
The social network platform declined using the paid ad which depicted Jesus on the Damiano cross.

The varsity located in Steubenville, said: “This is what the monitors at Facebook consider excessively violent, sensational, and shocking, the school responded in a blog post titled 'He was rejected'.
'And indeed the Crucifixion of Christ was all of those things. It was the most sensational action in history: man executed his God. It was shocking, yes: God designed to take on flesh and was 'obedient unto death,' even death on a cross'. And it was certainly excessively violent: a man scourged to within an inch of life, nailed to a cross and left to die, all the hate of all the sin in the world poured out its wrath upon its humanity.'
Franciscan University went on to say that it wasn't the nails that kept Jesus on the cross but his love for mankind. 
'He could have descended from the cross at any moment. No, it was love that kept him there. Love for you and for me, that we might not be eternally condemned for our sins but might have life eternal with him and his Father in heaven,' the school wrote.
