Now it's something else's fault...

...instead of someone else's fault:

The Reverend Cedric Miller, pastor of the 1,100 member Living Word Christian Fellowship, called for his congregation's leaders to dump their Facebook accounts.  He blames Facebook for the marital problems of 20 couples in his church.
Yep, it's all Facebook's fault. Damn that Mark Zuckerberg for creating a way for people to stay and/or get back in touch. He should have known that bad things would happen when certain people got back in touch with one another.

Seriously, if Facebook interaction leads to old flames burning down marriages, those marriages had problems that staying off the site wasn't going to fix. Why can't people take responsibility for their own actions? And why do church authority figures enable this evasion of responsibility?
