"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Social media users more likely to divorce.

Why am I not surprised?
Social media websites in general and Facebook in particular may be linked to an increased likelihood of divorce, claims a recently released study.
"Results show that using social networking sites negatively correlated with marriage quality and happiness, and positively correlated with experiencing a troubled relationship and thinking about divorce."
"It's hard to know what comes first: Divorce or obsessing about the lives of others on Facebook." - Christian Post

I wonder how many have lost jobs as well?  Or worse - quit their jobs to write a blog and collect donations, hoping for a book deal and speaking engagements?  

Were people this nuts before social media?


  1. Yes but we didn't know it immediately.

  2. It also explains their reaction to the Pope. I would say a lot of the same antagonism for Pope Francis is the kind of antagonism created via social media that leads to divorce.
