LA MESA, CA—Protestants have long been moved and encouraged by the Actes and Monuments, or Foxe's Book of Martyrs, an account of many believers who were persecuted for their faith.
Now, Foxe's is being re-released with the latest martyr for Christ: local man Brian Carter, who was violently and senselessly censored on Facebook for his beliefs.
"We wanted all future generations to be uplifted by Carter's tale of posting a Bible verse on Facebook only to have the algorithm hide his post," said a historian assigned to rewrite the classic work of Christian history with the new addition. "Brian is a true hero, to be remembered among the likes of the Apostle Paul, Peter, and Stephen for his brave martyrdom for Christianity."
"Peter may have been crucified upside-down, but Brian probably suffered worse, since he worked really hard on that Facebook post that Zuckerberg wouldn't let anybody see in their news feed."
At publishing time, it had been confirmed that Carter actually hadn't been censored; it was just that no one liked his post.
