It wasn't too long ago that the Pope gave facebook the thumbs up. What I didn't realize is that he did it via a Tweet, while checking in at the Vatican on FourSquare. It would appear as though the Catholic Church is embracing technology as they have such approved a confession app for the iPhone.
If absolution now comes in a handy cell phone app, I wonder what other cell phone accessories
the Catholic Church will be approving down the road? Maybe a special Bluetooth headset
that offers a direct link to God? I've met at least one guy on a city bus that was convinced he already had one of those.
To be fair, for the iPhone app to get you into Heaven, you have to consult a priest before everything is official. No word on if you can just text message the priest or not though. Although I don't see why not?
Now that we have 4G I'm sure couples will be able to video chat with a priest to get married, and last rites will be administered the same way. It is the 21st century after all.
