The Catholic Church in America has approved Confession: A Roman Catholic App, for use among churchgoers and lapsed Catholics alike.
It won’t be as easy as logging into Facebook on your smartphone and sharing what you did at this past weekend in the parking lot, behind the dumpster, with… nevermind.
Protected by a password, the app invites users to examine their consciences and confess to their sins. But it won’t replace the old-school booth. The app, which costs $1.99, just goes through the motions of confession, but churchgoers must see a priest for absolution.
Laredo being heavily Catholic, bars will be full of people on their smartphones, teens at the mall will be on their smartphones, workplaces will have smartphone confession rooms… oh the possibilities for confessing anywhere, anytime…
Your fregada conscience will love it!
