The Church of England has urged its parishioners to take direct action against Internet porn by flooding the Web with positive, spiritual material. Next year will also see the appointment of a latter-day Noah who will co-ordinate the Church's stance, although the Bishop's name has yet to be released. The move came as a report into the "ethical and spiritual implications of cyberspace" was published. The report Cybernauts Awake!, encourages Christians to involve themselves with the Internet -- something that it believes will become the dominant form of communication in the future. Every church should set up its own site, the report continued, and put up positive and spiritual information, championing social justice and promoting religious awareness. However, the report also warns of corrupting influences such as pornography and image manipulation. As you would expect though, there is a happy ending. The Internet could itself be a force against atheism. The report suggests that the cyberspace experience may cause people to reflect on the spiritual side of life and subsequently return to the fold. Heaven may soon be just a click away. ®
