There is a Facebook disease going around and it is spreading like wild fire. I have thought long and hard about a name for it and have come up with the name Amenitist. Those stricken with Amenitist lose their ability to think rationally once they see the word AMEN on a post and will like and type AMEN as requested no matter how ridiculous that article is. It can be the picture of a cute baby or of someone that is sick, often times cancer patients. Even posts that threatens seven years of bad luck if you don’t respond gets a like and a Amen. Many of the pictures are taken off the internet and used without the owner’s permission.

You could say that’s not so bad and you would be right. However it goes much deeper than that, these Farmers as they are called put out a lot of fabricated stories. For example there is one about a prostitute who had her womb removed. She became a Christian and got married and was able to give birth to a child even though she had no womb. There was one recently showing the picture of a banana plant with a bunch of banana almost a mile long (photo shopped of course.) Last week I saw one of a giant baby that a woman supposedly gave birth to. It was in fact a sculpture and it was outdoors but the hundreds of thousands who typed Amen seemed to think it was real and I found myself thinking have people lost their minds?

Don’t get me wrong for this is no laughing matter. People stricken with Amenitist as I said before lose their cognitive ability to think rationally. Once like and type Amen appears on a post they cannot resist this pull, this overpowering urge to like the post and type the word Amen. Think carefully the next time before you type Amen. Ask yourself these questions, is this a prayer, is this story real am I responding to a reasonable post, or am I stricken with the disease Amenitist?
