In a Feb. 7 article entitled "Bless me iPhone for I have sinned," the Reuters news service revealed that the Catholic Church in the US and UK has for the first time given its approval to an iPhone app.

The new app, available through iTunes for $1.99 in the US and £1.19 in the UK, is called Confession and it "walks Catholics through the sacrament and contains what the company behind the program describes as a "personalized examination of conscience for each user'".

Doesn't the third check box have to automatically be selected, if you've checked either of the first two?
Can an iPhone sexually assault an MP3 player?
They're developing an app for that.
LMFAO!
And by the way, who gets the money? Has the Vatican found a new source of income?
That app is already shooting to the top of the popular charts. It was free for a limited time. Apparently Jesus only knocks on the door once, and after that you have to pay the door man.
You have to wonder if this app is reporting back to the Vatican somehow, like spyware.
Now you can be nagged and guilt-tripped without any of that pesky human contact!
