a New Jersey pastor has added a new commandment to the list that he expects his leaders to abide by: ‘Thou shall not use Facebook’.

The Rev. Cedric Miller of Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, NJ has ordered his staff of 50 married church leaders to delete their Facebook accounts or resign from their leadership positions.

The pastor also says that he intends to counsel his entire congregation of 1,100 members to follow their lead and also discontinue using the social network site.

What lead to the pastor’s decision was the experience of counseling 20 different couples in failing marriages where Facebook was a factor in their trouble and actually lead to adultery with new and past friends initially found on line in the social network.

    I appreciate the fact that the Reverend is trying to help his congregation, but attacking the use of FB is just treating the symptom, not the disease. Just because he has a few bad counseling sessions does not mean that he can fix his congregation by killing Face Book.
