Policy for posting comments on the Archdiocese of St. Louis social media accounts

The posts made by the Archdiocese of St. Louis on our archdiocesan accounts will always uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church. Comments from others on our posts are welcome, and may even disagree with the diocese or the Church, but to maintain an atmosphere of Christian charity, comments may be deleted if they contain any of the following:

  • Insults
  • Vulgar language or images
  • Personal attacks/inflammatory remarks against a person or group
  • Remarks that are not directly relevant to the post being commented on
  • Spam or repeat posts
  • Links to sites that contain offensive material, attack a person or are off-topic
  • Promotion of services, products, political organizations/agendas
  • Information that is factually incorrect

Comments left by others on our diocesan accounts do not necessarily reflect the views of the Archdiocese of St. Louis or the Roman Catholic Church.
