I may have hinted elsewhere that I feel the catholic church needs to drag itself into the modern world a bit. So it is ironic, in the light of yesterday’s missive, that the church in America has given its approval to a new iPhone app.
Sold (!) under the name “Confession” it allows believers to seek divine forgiveness through the semi-divine Steve Jobs. From what I have seen it appears to be a bit of a Select-a-Sin multiple choice affair, rather than a free text input job, so there will be little scope for entries such as “Yesterday I coveted my neighbour’s wife’s ass. LOL x”
But the biggest disappointment is that they didn’t just go ahead and call it “iConfess”. *
