More Facebook Troubles – UPDATE 3 -Victory in Christ

It seems the folks at Facebook are at it again, blocking & locking accounts that contain any Religious information in names. I had opened my account in 2009 and had never had a problem until today, when I was booted out and had to log back in as the information had stated that I changed my password  month ago. To which I had not. As I try to log back in, Facebook now requires me to submit federal issued ID’s that prove who I am,  to which I took a picture of my US Military ID, California Issued DL and a photo of my Lay Carmelite Order ID Card.  About two months ago, I added TOC (Third Order Carmelite) after my name, witch BTW is Margaret, but since birth I have been called Peggy..  I will be 50 years old in December.  I do not have any ID with Peggy on it. Its a known Nickname for the name Margaret just a Mark is for Marcus.

So I complied, and received an email back stating:

Hi,

According to the Facebook Terms, you must be at least 13 years old to use Facebook. Please wait while we review your ID and confirm that you are eligible to use Facebook.

If you haven’t provided an ID that meets our requirements, please reply to this email and attach a copy of your ID. You can review what types of ID we accept and how to send your attachments over a secure connection here:

I am still unable to log into my Facebook account which I had opened in 2009, 7 years ago, without having to provide ANY ID using the exact information I have always used. For the past few years, religious have been targeted UNJUSTLY by this “Social Media” site and it is notorious for unfair treatment to Priests and Religious Sisters refusing them to use their Religious IDENTITY.  I guess its the Third Orders turn. May our Lord bless them and our Lord have mercy on them.

Funny really, as I had been pondering deleting the account as I am leaving on Retreat this coming weekend. It would have been nice to retrieve seven years of personal photos of my children before hand. After pondering this deeply, I don’t mind being kicked out of social media hell and I truly now can do more work for our Lord at hand as the chain that has been attached to my wrist, chained to the computer, has been cut. Peace. Its not to say there are not a lot of wonderful souls on Facebook that I have gotten to know as I love you very much, but the reality of Life, is not being confined to a smart phone, computer screen or any other electronic gadget that only permits you to talk about things needing to be done. Our Lord’s Kingdom is much bigger and He needs hands to do some work away from what we have adapted to mean “social”.  Social is face to face. I will keep everyone in my prayers, always. The only change is that our Lord has removed the chaos that I obviously did not need, in order for me to do the work He truly needs me to do. I obviously don’t need Facebook. We only need our Lord.

Thank you Lord.

Edit to add: Just returned from Holy Mass and after the events of not just today, but this entire week, and since I became aware of what our Lord is doing to my heart,  with my ENTIRE heart, mind, strength and soul, I shout out, YES LORD I love you more than anything.

Apparently Jesse doesn’t understand that Peg and Margaret are the same name and many souls have their madden name on their accounts along with married names….
I sent them the link to Wikipedia : Peggy Peggy is most commonly a diminutive of the female given name Margaret. It is sometimes spelled Peggie

 

What I found out during the ban. If you log into ANY Social Media Site with your FB account – If you are Banned from FB – You are in FACT CENCORED from speaking on ANY board who only uses FB logins to register. Fox News, Huff Post, etc., included. You are forced not only out of FB, but forced to create a new email address in order to comment anywhere OUTSIDE of FB as your email address looks as if it has already registered on other sites, due to Facebook holding your information. This is CENSORSHIP and its best NEVER to use your FB account to log into any Social Media site but to use some other form. Not only does FB take possession of your photos, videos and email, but your ability to speak anywhere else on Social Media – This is what is coming. You will not be able to voice anything if you use this site to log on other places outside of Facebook.

This is no different than that of the censorship the Apostles had to deal with from the beginning. Another thing to take into consideration is if you have Credit Card info on Facebook, if a fraud charge is made during your ban, you can NOT log in to dispute it and must go directly to the bank in order to take care of the situation.   Just before I was banned, I purchases some tokens for a game I had played, and was unable to use them and was told I needed to log in to dispute the charges, but could not as I was blocked from dong so. . I also received several updates about birthdays etc, which was silly. If it’s not me, why send updates?

We never know why our Lord leads us to places we just can’t understand, but we do know that in His time, He brings His Light to the entire situation…

I am now back on Facebook (for at short time anyway,  as I leave Friday for my Carmelite silent retreat), under the name that appears on my IDs that no one in the past 50 years of life have ever called me by,  unless they were official documents, police, or I was paying some bill. Social Media trying to make itself OFFICIAL Media. Which is very alarming for the reasons I just posted.

Although, what gives me hope, all my documents with the Catholic Church can be found under Margaret.

Thank you Lord Jesus Christ for the name You have for me. That is the one I look forward answering to.

Peace always.
