Mother, mother / There's too many of you crying

When one considers millions and millions of kids the Catholic Church has mentally (and physically) tortured and left traumatised over the centuries, thinking that they're going to burn in (imaginary) hellfires for eternity if they don't play by the rules or have offended some make believe old man, this is rather rich:

Social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace encourage teenagers to build "transient relationships" that can leave them traumatised and even suicidal when they collapse, the head of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales warned today.
