The Bible has over thirteen million likes on FaceBook and its app has been downloaded over fifty million times on Twitter.
Religious inspirational messages from Christian leaders are thirty times.
More likely to be re tweeted then tweets by celebrity -- -- like lady got god Justin Bieber Katy Perry -- all have.
Tens of millions of follow.
So is technology good or bad for religion joining us now to comment is that Fox News religious the contributor father Jonathan -- obviously you're a fan of Twitter your fan of technology I think you've often talked about here on the show the need for the Catholic Church to be on the forefront of being their connecting to the -- through the power technology -- his Twitter specifically with these religious leaders.
A good thing that's right -- the Catholic Church I would say in general people who have strong beliefs and values in my communicate them.
This is a New York Times article which inspired me.
That's news -- -- four -- that I was inspired by Bernard Berrian article it was very interesting -- it showed.
Was that -- and that those who were getting messages with meaning and value.
We're reach -- -- having greater impact than -- the celebrities who had millions of followers who were saying they just had a great -- the sort of they call those things today you know and what they -- self serving messages -- -- -- -- me in a bikini -- can -- -- in tweeted yesterday I read about it.
I just saw it wasn't horrible.
It wasn't our our.
Very heartened that.
-- religious messages are trumping things like I love you just say these two guys who are going up and very strange actually rich yeah I act I I am I am heartened by it and actually.
That inspired me to say you know I -- I was on Tweeter -- never took that and Twitter but I've never told anyone that it was even on it.
And I -- I have 101000 people are some that I don't use it that much and -- After this article I'm going to make a promise today that if we doubled that.
By the end of tomorrow.
I will send a tweet us spiritual tweet every single bit the next three months and I all.
I am inspired by the New York Times article and I I haven't been using it you know it is anybody out there -- are different spiritual leaders who -- acknowledge -- or any of these other spiritual leaders who talk about the power of self improvement and god.
-- you're more likely see their country Twitter stream and you just pause and you reflect from moment you might share it with other friends who are following you because you want to encourage and help them through their day that's right you know up until now I've been using it to save it for example -- had to be on fox.
-- -- -- -- Okay whatever it's it's informative but I think it really needs to be used more as an inspirational.
And that's what I'm gonna do every single day of the next three months OK if that if that happens is it watered down religion at all you know I don't think it -- 140 hours that's it's a bit is that the appetizer -- -- -- no one's ever told -- and.
I was done talking to the producer about this in preparation for the segment.
No one's ever told me hey listen I follow you on Twitter therefore I don't go to church.
C'mon it's like an appetizer getting ready for the in court except that -- had the President Obama got into a little bit of heat for saying it.
He gets daily affirmations and doesn't go to church but what it sounds like nobody nobody believes that argument.
In other words it's not like.
-- you know I don't have to go to church because -- use Twitter.
And is not a group believes it's not it's just an -- anybody -- and you -- who's taking on that spiritual food says one more.
All right followed the father on Twitter Father Jonathan -- and follow all the results was yeah I I would I will file you've got all of us.
