Don’t Seek Advice From Your Clergy, Trust in Google

“A large majority of Americans make important decisions without calling on religious leaders for advice, according to a new survey released Monday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll finds three-quarters of American adults rarely or never consult a clergy member or religious leader, while only about a quarter do so at least some of the time.”

Americans have lost faith in institutions, we take any pronouncement from government, financial institutions, academia, organized labor, the media and even organized religion with a grain of salt.

The Gospel truth ain’t what it used to be, we vet everything the pastor says for truth and accuracy on Google. Indeed, Google is omniscient and omnipotent and more accessible than the Almighty.

Polls have shown a steep rise over decades in the share of Americans identifying as unaffiliated with a religion. But even people who attend church on a regular basis rarely consult their minister when they’re faced with life-changing decisions.

After all, there’s a good chance your parish priest is a pedophile and your evangelical minister supports Trump. Why on Earth would a sane person rely on the judgement of a priest who’s a sexual deviant or an evangelical reverend who lacks the discernment to realize that Trump is a corrupt and vulgar racist?

No man is an island, and we all need friends and family members that we can talk to when dealing with stressful situations, and we should avail ourselves of their wisdom and advice. There’s no need to seek advice from your spiritual mentor, unless he also happens to be your friend.

And of course you can also seek comfort and wisdom from the Almighty Himself, whether it’s the Jehovah deity of the Bible or the artificial intelligence enhanced Google.

BlessU-2 Robot Priest is Superior to Pedophile Priests

“BlessU-2, which delivers blessings in five languages, is intended to trigger debate about the future of the church.

A robot priest that delivers blessings in five languages and beams light from its hands has been unveiled as part of an exhibition to mark the anniversary of the start of the Reformation, a Europe-wide religious, political and cultural upheaval sparked when Luther nailed his 95 theses to a church door in the town.

Half a millennium later, the robot, called BlessU-2, is intended to trigger debate about the future of the church and the potential of artificial intelligence.”

The robot padre is an answer to the two major problems facing the Roman Catholic Church: A critical shortage of clergy and pedophile priests.

BlessU-2 may beam light from its hands, but it isn`t going to use its mechanical hands to fondle little boys. Celibate robots are the answer to celibate priests with a prediction for molesting and raping young boys.

The Roman Catholic Church should replace all of their priests with mechanical ones, the critical shortage of clergy would immediately be solved, and the church wouldn`t have to spend millions in training ministers. If all of the robot priests are given male names, the church might see robot preachers as a divine answer.

The robot priests are limited in what they can do, they can recite blessings in five language and they can make their hands glow, that`s it. But come to think of it that`s all they really need to do, 99% of the duties the men of the cloth perform are religious tomfoolery. I`d be perfectly happy if my parish father was limited to reciting blessings.

I`m down with the robotic program, to hell with the flesh and blood pedophile priests, bring on the robot priests. Hallelujah! To hell with the “men of God”! Praise Jesus for the robots of God!
