Pope Benedict XVI liketh not technology.
I suppose if you believe a man rose from the dead and you are now the vessel that carries on that man’s spectacular mission to free people of sin, there’s a huge possibility you might believe an army of evil robots from the future may one day destroy human civilization. Not only that, it would be humanity’s fault. That’s what you get for being so advanced.
On Palm Sunday (which is basically the kick-off party for Holy Week), Pope Benedict XVI addressed a huge crowd. During his homily he “lauded man’s technological accomplishments but lamented that the increasing abilities can be used for evil,” according to the Associated Press.
If anyone knows a thing or two about a movement’s “abilities” being used for evil, it should be the leader of the Catholic Church.
I came across this story in The Daily and, I have no idea if this was due to any mischief on the editorial team’s part, but there was a story directly beneath this one with the headline “Robo-digger bids to rescue Idaho miner.” It seems a silver miner is trapped in a cave and his only hope for survival is a remote-controlled digging machine. There’s that evil technology, at it again.
Aside from the Bible becoming some type of app in a desperate attempt to keep the youth’s attention, Christianity will continue to be squeezed slowly out of culture, as if from a long tube of toothpaste.
