That’s because last week a pastor out of New Jersey made headlines, when he asked members of his congregation at Living Word Christian Fellowship to delete their Facebook accounts.
According to the Rev. Cedric Miller of Neptune, N.J. — Facebook and adultery go hand in hand. Miller claims that over the last six months, 20 couples at his church have run into marital problems after a spouse reconnected with a former love interest on Facebook. Because of the troubles, this past weekend the pastor forced about 50 married church leaders to delete their Facebook accounts. Those who didn’t were asked to resign from their leadership positions at Living Word.
In addition to asking his congregation to delete their accounts, the pastor’s own history came back to bite him in the arse. In light of the media attention the pastor was forced to own up to orgy that he participated in almost 10 years ago…
10 years ago Miller, his wife, a male church assistant and the assistant’s wife participated in group sex. The tryst was revealed during testimony in a criminal case against the assistant. His parishioners don’t seem to hold it against him, but this is just the type of past the Pastor says should remain buried…
But What do you think.. Is Facebook, Twitter, and social networking in general bad for relationships and your marriage? Leave a comment below…
With Black Friday approaching I wouldn’t leave you without some guidance on what to shop for… This week CNN broke the top 5 gadget trends to look for this holiday season… chances are that if you get anything along these lines, your recipient will be pretty satisfied…
The first trend is the e-reader, last year only a few big name companies had e-readers on the market… Now there are at least a dozen and prices range from a little over a hundred dollars (i.e. the Amazon Kindle) to $600 (for the Apple iPad). Speaking of Apple iPad, tablet computers are definitely a hot item… now remember you don’t have to immediately go for the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy tab is also on the market.
Connected TVs are making their debut this year, these are TVs with an internet browser built into the sets which make watching Youtube videos and Netflix as easy as watching your regular TV channels… Google and Sony partnered up for a pretty good one on the market for $800.
Now I’d say that Connected TVs are a much better investment man the next trend — 3-D TVs. 3-D televisions debuted last year, and I don’t expect them to make much traction this year. Panasonic 3-D TVs retail for at least seventeen hundred dollars… and in my opinion… not worth it… but if you know someone that likes to stay ahead of the curve, this may be the gift for them. Just don’t expect it to get much use.
Something that will definitely get MAD usage though is a brand new smartphone… whether you cop a phone that uses a Google Android, Apple OS, Windows OS or RIM , be sure to cop a Sirius XM App for your device!
(P.S. See how I snuck in that plug… Now that’s how you keep your job people.)
