There’s just no good reason to desecrate the Eucharist (or to gratuitously violate anyone’s religious beliefs)! Here’s the text:

To whom it may concern:

Please enforce your hate speech policy and remove from your site the videos of desecration of the Holy Eucharist, which Catholics recognize as the body of Jesus Christ, the central figure in our religion.

These videos quite clearly violate YouTube hate policies.  They are offensive specifically to Catholics and the Roman Catholic faith.  The comments on some of them indicate that the videos’ posters clearly intended them to be offensive to Catholics as an identified, targeted group.

For example: “We are fully aware of what we are desecrating.”

Your refusal to remove such videos would send a confusing message, given your past decisions to pull videos with content that you found offensive to Muslims.  YouTube should not be a platform for bigotry of any kind, against Catholics or otherwise.

It should especially not condemn bigotry against one group while condoning it against another.  Here is a sampling of the videos.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Please sign.
