The Catholic Church has approved "Confession," a smartphone app for Roman Catholics who need to confess RIGHT NOW. The app costs $1.99 and allows the user to log in with a password, reflect on his sins, and confess them by typing them into the app. BUT, if the sinner wants to be absolved, he has to visit a priest. I mean, don't be silly. A smartphone app can't absolve you! That would be crazy. Only a random person who may or may not have a relationship with your God can do that. On one hand, I want to congratulate the Catholic Church for trying to stay current, but unfortunately all that pesky anti-gay nonsense and sanctioned child abuse stuff makes it hard for me to celebrate. Still, I'm also not one to dis anyone's religious choices, so if you are Catholic with a heavy conscience, THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT!
