The Bishop of London has warned that excessive use of the Internet can harm personal interaction and that Internet regulation should be considered.
Speaking to the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists in London this week, the Right Reverend Richard Chartres said the church has always relied on human interaction but the shift to computer communication damages face-to-face contact.
"The technology affects not only how we work but also how we think about ourselves and our world," he said. "Can excessive exposure to the current information technology environment cause repetitive soul strain?"
The Bishop urged authorities not to ignore Internet porn and expressed doubt that a new Hitler could be stopped using the Net in the current regulatory climate.
