I clarified what I meant. I never used the word control freak. I view conservative churches as being more controlling in that regard.

I didn't say all conservative churches did it.

It's not unheard of. If they no longer have that policy, fine. Do you know for a fact they no longer preach against TV either?

Ya that is the only church that I know of that preaches against the Internet. So that's kind of odd to lump us all together cause of one church that teaches that.

While I have NO idea about the total number of churches that do, I do know there are/were many that totally banned their members from internet access, especially in the deep South.

....and it is kind of hard to get this info from anyone but ex-members here, for obvious reasons.

I didn't lump you together. I never said all UC churches preach against the Internet

I don't believe what I said was harsh at all. They are Ultra Cons and if you LIKE that sort of stuff, that is for you. Yes UCs tend to be controlling. Telling you not to have a TV, not to use the Internet (Yes I met someone from this church who was told she can't use the Internet) etc etc.

Nothing harsh there.
This is how u lumped us together with the one church that u heard about.
