Does a Pastor have the right to ask members to give up Facebook?

A New Jersey pastor is telling his members to give up Facebook. He says he has been counselling couples that have re-connected with their exes via Facebook. Pastor Miller says “Because of the problems, he is ordering about 50 married church officials to delete their accounts with the social networking site or resign from their leadership positions. He had previously asked married congregants to share their login information with their spouses and now plans to suggest that they give up Facebook altogether. I’ve been in extended counseling with couples with marital problems because of Facebook for the last year and a half,” he said. “What happens is someone from yesterday surfaces, it leads to conversations and there have been physical meet-ups. The temptation is just too great.” So is the pastor right? Tell me what you think.
