It's a great headline, but it doesn't make me want to either twitter or attend church.

my pastor always told us twittering ourselves was a sin.
 
2009-03-11 04:20:12 PM  
And if the pastor thinks God isn't amused by twittering on occasion... he hasn't heard his own sermons yet. I think even God has to put His mind on something else occasionally in order to avoid falling asleep during a pastor's talk.

You see literally dozens and dozens of people during the service writing #MHC and you can search that on Twitter and just see everything that our people's thoughts, their ideas

Well there goes the neighbourhood.

Nice try. Now go sit in the corner and text about God.

FTFA:"I remember 10, 15 years ago you couldn't wear a hat in church, and now you can get out your mobile phones and your iPhones and you can Twitter so these things change and you've got to move with the times," he said.

Yeah it sounds like real improvement. Instead of dressing nicely and acting respectful in church, you get to text all your inane thoughts to everyone around. If I was a Christian and went to church, crap like this would make me leave.

rava: I don't get it


"Text-communicated" = receiving communication by texting
"Excommunicated" = church denying you the holy communion

No, it's one of those words that have a different meaning when you read them backwards.

wsupfoo: LOL. awesome headline.

am I the only one who doesn't get twitter? Does that make me old?


Probably. I don't get it either, but then again I am old.

/just a couple weeks shy of 43
 
2009-03-11 05:02:02 PM  
I really don't understand the need for Twitter either. Seems like it's for people who have an obsession with texting minutiae.

But the headline was top knotch. +1

TallyGirl - Twitter is like a blog, but just a fragment of what's going on.

/31, don't care
//goes to church but doesn't think Twitter During The Sermon is a good idea.

OMG! UR OLD! GIT OF UR LAWNZ!!!

/I agree with you 100%. It's the sensible thing to blog afterwards. Can you imagine the Twittering?

@xnewnoisex 10:00 got to church... old lady is staring at my kid like she's hungry
@xnewnoisex 10:15 Announcements. Apparently Ms. Haggardly died yesterday. Funeral is on weds.
@xnewnoisex 10:30 COMMUNION!!!!!
@xnewnoisex 10:45 I'm bad I fell asleep
@xnewnoisex 11:00 my wife just donkey punched me going home.

I almost made a twitter account and then I realized that no one cares that I just scratched my left temple and I'm kinda hungry but not hungry enough to eat anything.

Twitter is just another excuse for people to pretend they are important.

Haven't these guys come a long way, baby?

It wasn't that long ago that Galileo had to eat his observation that the universe wasn't revolving around the earth.

What's next? Putting all this bullsh*t on hold until somebody can figure out which one's the 'real religion'?
