I notice that a lot of peeps are taking the opportunity of Lent to withdraw from Facebook for a while. That's great. What is not so great is when they attempt to sell their decision to the rest of us as being part of their Lenten discipline.
Bollocks, it is!
They are giving up Facebook because they know that they are going to be a lot happier while they are no longer leashed to the monster. Lent is a good excuse and I am sure God does not mind in the slightest that his days of fasting are being used to provide an incentive for social media addicts to go cold turkey. But giving up Facebook is not a penance so do not pretend it is.
