Before I got sidetracked with Mr Arctic Circle Guy, I was actually looking for something else. One letter was posted on the UCG Current Crisis site, apparently from the daughter and son-in-law of a UCG member in Wichita, KS. It is disturbing if true. It appears that the member clicked on the Like button on a Facebook post. For that, she received a phone call. She decided not to change her mind about liking the post, and so she was suspended. Worse, her suspension was announced to the entire congregation.
Yes, for pressing “Like” on Facebook.
What was it she “liked”? I really would like to know what causes individuals who claim such “love” towards the brethren to disfellowship someone for agreeing with something said in a conversation! The best I can tell, it was an open letter to the minister (Ed Dowd). What was that about turning the other cheek, again?
You can read more about it, though, at http://ucgcurrentcrisis.webs.com/lettersfrommembers.htm or on FB at http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=117871298235420&topic=932.
Meanwhile, I also see from FB that the “love” continues in that Mr Hanisko of the Dells area was asked to not come to church any more. Apparently, Bob Faye (sp?) is taking over.
In the meantime, remember: Thou shalt not like on Facebook.
