Pope Loved Tech Until Internet Busted Up His Control of Comm... Too Bad

From Inquirer Dot Net

You can see through this: THE POPE has called for an end to the digital divide, or something.

Pope Benedict said that the times in which we are living have seen a huge widening of the frontiers of communication. The new media of this new age points to a more "egalitarian and pluralistic" forum. But, he went on to say, it also opens a new hole, the "digital divide" between haves and have-nots.
All good stuff, and fair comment. But then his Holiness gets a bit medieval about the Internet. He said that this Internet thing "exacerbates tensions between nations and within nations themselves". And it increases the "dangers of ... intellectual and moral relativism", which can lead to "multiple forms of degradation and humiliation" of the essence of a person, and to the "pollution of the spirit".

Odd really, we would have thought that you could say the same thing about organised religion. However it looks like his Holiness thinks that the Internet is responsible...
