Sinners Sign On
1:00 PM -- Internet-savvy sinners unite online for salvation, according to the Miami Herald:
The confession appears at ivescrewedup.com, a website launched by the Flamingo Road Church in Cooper City. It's one of a growing number of such sites across the country -- some secular and others church-sponsored -- that offer a place to spill out ugly secrets or just make peccadilloes public.
"I think it helps people understand...that we're not here to point out people's screw-ups, that we're here to help them," said lead Pastor Troy Gramling, whose nondenominational church launched the site on Easter weekend. "The church is made of skin and flesh and people that have made mistakes."
A recent redesign gave readers the option to post prayers or responses to the confessions.
The websites, with their voyeuristic appeal, may fulfill people's need to feel better about their own behavior or moral values.
