Social Networked Vicars?

The Church of England has decided to join the twenty-first century with the launch of it's brand new Social Networking site for its clergy.

However, there has been some controversy over the choice of name that has landed the Anglicans in hot water.

Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, called the new Social Networking site Faithbook.com, but owners of the Facebook domain are up in alms.

"It's a blatant rip off," said Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the worldwide networking phenomenon. "We can't let them get away with this, religious or not. I'm going to get this stopped."

Using money raised from tombola and church fĂȘtes the domain name has been purchased and the web site set up. Dr Williams cannot see what all the fuss is about.

"The name came to me in prayer," he said. "I believe Mr Suckerberg is over-reacting. After all, he didn't react like this after the launch of Fakebook for false celebrities or Farcebook for Spoof.com did he? And when the fisherman launched Hakebook, where was his moaning then? A quick check will show that there is also Falsebook and Lacebook, though the latter is a collection of patterns for lace making, and not a social networking site at all. Zark Muckerberg is just upset because he knows he couldn't compete with our resources. All I can say to him is Bring it on Sucker."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
