Pastor: Thou shall not use Facebook

Click bait of the day: A New Jersey pastor is suggesting his flock drop their Facebook accounts after so many of them got into marital trouble finding old flames on the site.

In just the past six months, 40 of the 1,100 members of the Living Word Christian Fellowship Church had such problems, according to this report in The Guardian.

Church officials have to delete their accounts, but it’s optional for everyone else. The Rev. Cedric Miller earlier suggested that spouses share passwords but that apparently didn’t help, so now he’s going to suggest they drop the accounts, according to the report.
