Columnist Mike Cassidy Wonders if God has a Facebook Page

Actually, Cassidy muses on the fact that [t]he town square, complete with steepled church, has become a digital rectangle that we carry in our pockets.
Does God have a Facebook page? (San Jose Mercury News, 2/27/2011)
Excerpt: But Web 2.0 has changed everything. The social Web has empowered people in the face of institutions -- governments, big businesses and old-line religions -- in ways the early Web did not. No longer do pronouncements come down digitally from on high, as if delivered on stone tablets. The Web is democratic now. We are creating the content we want to consume. The masses, if you will, are creating the Masses.
The rest of the Trinity is on Facebook, too. Jesus even allows unflattering posts of Scott Walker to appear on his page.
Holy Spirit. (Although as a Lutheran, now lapsed, I always preferred the term Holy Ghost.)
