Censorship Week: When it's up to Facebook, who gets a voice?

Yesterday, Facebook decided to shut down yet another progressive group's page. A page promoting a gay kiss in for the Pope's visit to Spain was removed. Sorry, Pope.

After some brief meta-research, I have created a list of groups Facebook censors. Don't be surprised if your pages and causes are removed with no warning. Especially if you are:

And that list is just from a few searches.

Should we feel better if Facebook seems to use equal-opportunity censorship across the board? Of course I enjoy the irony of joining the National Coalition to Fight Censorship on Facebook. And don't forget to check out Self Serve on Facebook, too!
