Can you imagine my delight when I received this invitation this morning?
Special Invite to join the first Facebook Alternative for Christians
Get in early! Sign up today!
Friends + Faith = Fellowship
“FaithOut” appears to be an utter rip of of facebook; I had a look at the screenshots (like this, for example) on the site and they seem to have copied every little thing. But my question is: Why? Why? Why does such a thing exist?
One thing I’ve never understood is the desire by some parts of the church to cut themselves off completely from the world. To only seek medical advice from a Christian Doctor, for example. (Steve Taylor summed it up in a song back in the early 80s – when I was listening to Christian music – in the line “you’ll only drink milk from a Christian Cow”.)
And in this case, why not just encourage Christians who want to use a social networking site to use an existing one, where hopefully they can be a positive influence and reach out to their friends from all areas. That’s supposed to be the idea, isn’t it?
One good thing: I was impressed that my email programme marked the invitation as spam. Good job!
