Catholic church gives blessing to iPhone app

Post by groomporter » Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:47 pm

The Catholic Church has approved an iPhone app that helps guide worshippers through confession. The app takes users through the sacrament - in which Catholics admit their wrongdoings - and allows them to keep track of their sins.

Next generation confessional...? Just a plug your phone into the USB jack in the confessional box and iPriest will upload your penance to your phone and give you the option to buy an indulgence through your Paypal account.

Cool. You know that iPhones can transmit audio, video, and your contact information without your knowledge or permission.

Unrelated headline, six months from now: "Italian crime syndicate runs devastatingly accurate blackmail scheme." :)

Can I listen to a streaming podcast of a sermon, consider the sabbath holy from there, and keep on with my active lifestyle?

Sure! Go ahead and try to cheat the Almighty God on a technicality! Fear not; maybe it will be simulated brimstone. :twisted: :lol:
