I don't want FaceBook to put any notifications on my iPhone's home screen for anything, ever.

I've gone into the iPhone's "settings" app and turned off all notifications for FaceBook.

I've gone into the settings within the FB app itself and turned off all push notifications.

But I still get notifications.

What more do they want from me?

If there is something FaceBook is good at, it's in bothering it's users :)
So make sure you've unchecked those items:

Make sure you've switched the Notification Center-slider to off and the Alert Style to none in such a way FaceBook is listed in the Not In Notification Center.

And if you go to Settings < FaceBook, make sure you're Push Notifications are all switched off.

Thank you very much for the detailed answer. – Agvorth Jun 11 '12 at 18:44
Did it turn off your push notifications? – Michiel Jun 11 '12 at 18:44
So far, yes. It appears to have done so. – Agvorth Jun 12 '12 at 17:22

Settings -> Notifications

You have to choose none in the notification style menu, and disable all buttons.
