An Israeli rabbi has responded to a sharp increase in the confessions of internet-related sins by creating a prayer to help Jewish men overcome the guilt of their transgressions. Shlomo Eliahu says that the number of men who have come to him to confess internet-related sins has increased so dramatically that he felt the need to create a prayer devoted solely to surfing sinners. "Please God, help me cleanse the computer of viruses and evil photographs which disturb and ruin my work..., so that I shall be able to cleanse myself (of sin)," reads the prayer. Eliahu says that reciting the prayer before logging on will help ease the guilt of surfing for internet porn. He also recommends programming your computer so that the prayer will flash on the screen automatically in case you "unintentionally" enter a porn site. (Reuters)
