It might seem insane, but religion continues to fight against technology:
Evangelical Christians in Brazil have banned the use of USB connections after claiming the technology is the mark of Satan-worshippers.
Thou shalt not commit adultery. And thou also shalt not use Facebook.
That’s the edict from a New Jersey pastor who feels the two often go together.
The Rev. Cedric Miller said 20 couples among the 1,100 members of his Living Word Christian Fellowship Church have run into marital trouble over the last six months after a spouse connected with an ex-flame over Facebook.
Because of the problems, he is ordering about 50 married church officials to delete their accounts with the social networking site or resign from their leadership positions. He had previously asked married congregants to share their login information with their spouses and now plans to suggest that they give up Facebook altogether.
Reverend Jim Peasboro of Savannah GA has written a book “The Devil in the Machine: Is your computer possessed by a demon?” Some of the points raised in the book by the author are:
* “While the Computer Age has ushered in many advances, it has also opened yet another door through which Lucifer and his minions can enter and corrupt men’s souls.”
* Demons can possess anything with a brain, including a chicken, a human being, or a computer.
* “Any PC built after 1985 has the storage capacity to house an evil spirit.”
