I Can’t Be Sure That Giving Up ‘Facebook’ For Lent Is Really Kosher.

The other day a friend of mine, a devout Catholic, told me that he could not leave comments on my ‘Next Pope’ posts right now because he had given up Facebook for Lent. For a second I thought he was joking. Pulling my leg. But, he wasn’t.

I genuinely was taken aback. Seemed sacrilegious. Truly like a joke. Trivializing something that Catholics used to be quite serious & earnest about.

As some of you know, despite all my pope-related endeavors, I have never been a Christian, let alone a Catholic. I was born a good Heathen & I am now a Reformed, Born-Again, Heathen.

But, over the years I have spent much time with Catholics. One of my wife’s was a Catholic — & my two eldest kids were baptised & confirmed. One even went to a private Catholic school. So, I know a bit about Lent.

Giving up Facebook really does not strike me as much of a sacrifice.

So, today, I went looking to see what people are really giving up for Lent these days. I was staggered. I was shocked. Social Media heads the list.

Sacré ‘bloody’ bleu! What has the world come to? Wow.

I really am shaken.

Way too many FAKE guruges around Social Media these days. So, I decided to take a leaf from Donald J. Trump’s book. Let’s face it, whatever you may think of him, he is unbelievably successful at everything he does. So, though it is WAY TOO LATE, I am going to try and learn as much as I can from Mr. Trump.

Getting the Twitter handle was easy and but the first step.

I stopped using Twitter 3-years ago. But, of late, I keep on seeing that I need to Tweet. So, I needed a new handle. So, I took Mr. Trump’s lead.

The next step is to replace my current, balding toupee with a blonde Mr. Trump wig. I think it might be what I need. I have realized that my bad toupee has held me back.
