Google has banned remarketing ads from Concordia Publishing House, the publishing company of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, because they mention “Jesus” and the “Bible.”
Carl Vehse brought this up in a comment, I saw CPH president Bruce Kintz’s tweet, and I read the Federalist article, but I had trouble believing it. Surely, this was just a mistake. But no. I contacted CPH and confirmed that it is true. In fact, CPH asked Google to review the decision twice, at different levels, and each time the ruling was the same. A Google representative helpfully said that if the company would remove the references to “Jesus” and the “Bible” on the website the ads could continue.
