Hi Rishi,

If the ad itself is discriminatory or portraying intolerance then I would suggest filling out a form to make a complaint on the following URL:

Hi Rishi,

Could you identify where exactly this is against the adwords policy? And on another note, how do you know it was a google display ad and not a media placement by the site or another ad serving platform?

That does not state that you may not promote religious content. I assume you are referring to:

"hatred; violence; harassment; racism; sexual, religious, or political intolerance, or organizations with such views"

But if you read that statement and consider the punctuation (ideas separated by a semi colon and lists by a comma) sexual/religion/political intolerance is how it should read.

So adwords do not have a policy against advertising religion but against religious intolerance.

On another note which is more of a philosophical debate, I do not believe palm reading would be considered religious.

Hope this helps

Hi Clynton M,
i understand palm reading wouldn't be considered religious. But in the ad copy they are conveying the wrong thing Because it's may be heart some community feelings.
