Reality TV Creeping Over To Church Channels

Consumer generated media is working wonders in Edmond, Okla., where Life Church, an evangelical network with nine locations in Arizona, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas is asking parishoners for their confessions.

Spokesmen from the church quote Proverbs and believe confession is a road to salvation. Perhaps the holy men are right, but what if the 1500 people who have confessed at are just people in need of an audience?
I suppose there’s no harm in it. It just seems like a ton of dirty laundry that might be better cleansed elsewhere.
