Pastor Orders Church Off Facebook

Lead us not into temptation, Facebook. A New Jersey pastor ordered 50 married church officials to delete their accounts or resign, and requested his congregants also delete their accounts. Reverend Cedric Miller of the Living Word Christian Fellowship Church had previously asked his congregants to give their spouses their Facebook passwords, but when 20 couples in the 1,100-member church ran into marital trouble in the last six months after connecting with an ex on the social networking site, he decided more drastic measures were needed. “What happens is someone from yesterday surfaces, it leads to conversations and there have been physical meet-ups. The temptation is just too great,” said Miller. He plans to cancel his account over the weekend.
