Break One Of God’s Commandments? There’s An App For That

The U.S. Catholic Church has approved Confession: A Roman Catholic App, an iPhone app that walks Catholics through the confessional process it. It offers a “personalized examination of conscience for each user,” the church says, and for $1.99 it offers an express lane for making up for your sins. With password-protected profiles, the app also offers users the option to “choose from seven acts of contrition as well as add sins not listed in the standard examination of conscience.” So what button do you press to confess you’re a man of the cloth who touched little boys in their no-no places?

On the practical side, look how easy baptisms will be!

    They need to come up with an app to help Pedophile Priests deal with THEIR urges. Clean up your own house before telling people how to clean up their houses.

    hahahahahaha that is by my childhood friend’s husband. i thought it was a joke when i first saw it. but apparently, it isn’t.
    i am so fascinated by this. i wasn’t raised catholic so i think that part of it is beyond me, but the “personalized examination of sins based on your age, sex, and profession” is most intriguing to me–i really, really want to know how it deals with queerness.
    but, not $1.99 worth, so i guess i will never know.
