This photo was submitted by reader ClosetLutheran of a poster he saw in a fundamentalist church. Since it’s a quick cell phone snap and the image is a little blurry, I’ve transcribed the text below:
Or Evil Communication?
Social Networking…with names such as Facebook and Twitter…is considered by some the greatest communication tool in the world. For others…it is a considered a profound and deadly threat to the family and the Church
What is “Social Networking”, and what impact is it having in the world today…especially among Christians? This documentary examines this 21st century phenomenon from a practical, and Christian, perspective. Interviews include parents, pastors, and law enforcement.
There clearly seems to be ground for concern. And the the danger it is not just limited to teens and young adults!

Update: Here is a link to a PDF about the Dangers of Social Media by Ron Williams reprinted from the “Hephzibah Happenings” newsletter.
