Profanity in the Pews

The world’s first Internet church has apparently been struck by a plague of profanity.

Britain’s first three-dimensional cyber church has been forced to tighten security after a slew of abusive visitors ranted from the pulpit and swore in the aisles.

The Church of Fools said Wednesday it has withdrawn the “shout” button, which allows visitors to address everyone who is present, and added more wardens, who use a “smite” button to log out people who use abusive language. The apse area, including pulpit, lectern and altar have also been closed to visitors.

The church said the first two days of the site, which launched last week, had been very noisy; in one case, a person logged in as Satan, entered the pulpit and started to blaspheme.

And in a shocking accusation, the church has identified the culprits’ countries of origin.

Church of Fools said most of the problems happened during the night in Britain, when people log on from the United States and Australia.
