A Curious Decision

'Father X', a priest of the Roman Catholic Church, should be praised for his essay on technology at The Remnant web site, which begins thus:  'It has always been the effort of the City of Man to overthrow Gods empire and put man on His throne. And while the effort of the godless to become gods has always failed and always will fail, yet they will continue their attempts until the end of time. This essay, while not wanting to present modern technology as intrinsically evil, yet wishes to highlight its use by the godless as the most powerful tool for self-deification that has yet been seen.'

The See of Rome seems to have a different view of the matter:  'Vatican clergy and employees will be issued with an identity card complete with a microchip-tracking device in sweeping new security measures designed to prevent a repeat of the Vatileaks scandal.'

One hopes the Roman Catholic Church's use of these personal tracking devices will not embolden other organizations (schools, businesses, etc.) to begin using them also.

'O Technology, how beautiful is your potency!'
