You've probably heard about this by now. A NJ pastor banned Facebook use among his staff and has encouraged the 1100 members of his congregation to delete their accounts. His reason: Facebook leads to adultery. Well there you have it. Give the story a read. I'd love to hear your thoughts--posted comments here or catch me in conversation.
I noted that the folks over at Church Marketing Sucks, where I came across the story (hat tip CMS!), added a rather thought provoking comment in the dialogue at the end of the post: "100% of adulterous relationships involved at least one penis and/or one vagina. shall we take the next illogical step?" Uh...
I've talked about Facebook before. I've actually argued (friendly disagreements) with local pastors about the use of Social Media. I'll plan to revisit some of those thoughts and update them here in the coming days.
What do you think?
