The world's first internet church, which was launched recently at the Christian Resources Exhibition by the Ship of Fools website has been attacked by cyber demons - particularly from Australia and the USA, logging on as Satan. The church, is now restricting areas such as the altar and pulpit. Cyber wardens are also instantly logging out anyone who swears and blasphemes, consigning them to virtual hell, says BBC News Online. The church is now struggling to develop new security to rid the blasphemers from their midst. A spokesman said they were looking for more money so they can employ wardens around the clock. He insisted the church would carry on and added that John Wesley, the 18th century founder of Methodism, which sponsors the site, faced similar abuse. The site was launched as a unique chance for Christians to worship interactively. It attracts up to 10,000 visitors a day who can log on and choose a 3-D character which can kneel, sing hymns, hear a sermon and even shout "Hallelujah"! The church is at: http://ship-of-fools.com/ You may need to upload an extra programme to access it. We do here at ICN.
