concept to publication

Should teenagers and others express themselves through blogs?

That’s the question the Restored Church of God is asking.

The answer: “No one—including adults—should have a blog or personal website (unless it is for legitimate business purposes).” You see, “blogs are something youth should not be doing in any way.” Why not? Because “Jesus Christ and His Church have standards. Those who desire fewer standards should go to the splinters or to the world.”

So no excuses — now you know. Take down that myspace site this minute!

If you don’t believe me, you can visit their … well, their website.

  2. Hi,
    I wrote the original article exposing this blog ruling by the RCG and I just wanted to say I am still laughing over “You are so going to the splinters.” 🙂

    Thanks very much for visiting. I’m glad you dropped by, and thanks for pointing us to the RCG ruling.

    I’m afraid I’m still blogging, despite the ruling. As Oscar Wilde said, I can resist everything except temptation.
