PopeWatch: Computers

More to explorer


  1. He has a good point, Our Pope.
    The trend seems to be heading into a younger marketplace. I’ve noticed children eight years of age glued to their own smart phones. Mom and Dad are thrilled at the idea of Jr. having an advantage over the boys peers.

    So much for cub scouts.

    Oh wait…..have the homosexuals demanded residency within that organization yet?

    Maybe the phones at that age IS a good thing! (?)

  2. As those old fashioned nuns taught, “all things in moderation.”

    Surely the TV is jut as addictive and perhaps more deadly with it’s sophisticated diabolical messaging and propaganda.
    This message brought to you with the able assistance of my computer….

    I also find the computer a remarkable aid in saying my daily prayers–large print–less wandering–and plenty of time to ponder new insights into often heard words.

  3. The filth that permeates the entirety of our society is of the same source-Satan. I wonder if Francis will ever mention his name.

  4. *girds herself for the inevitable “any point that I say is too much is too much, the Pope says so” arguments*

    Of course too much is too much, that’s what makes it “too much.”

  5. While computers in the home can be a problem, the cellphone, and other hand-held portable devices, are much more insidious and have made the problem much, much worse.
    When I was growing up, the idea of people walking or sitting in public being glued to their phones or other devices, talking or pecking away at them as if no one present existed, would have been considered highly rude and anti-social. Today, it has become the norm.

  6. I grew up with people having the exact same reaction to me, TomD– I had the unmitigated gall to prefer reading a book to listening to them lecture me.
    Oddly, those folks tended to be the same ones that were themselves prone to being quite rude in their conversation, and considered it “anti-social” if someone said something they didn’t like. It really didn’t help matters that when they’d rant falsehoods, I’d politely disagree.
    With facts.
    The quality of the conversation has not improved, and seems to rather have gotten worse. Possibly this is because I am in the Seattle blob, but the cause and effect of people preferring their phones to random strangers is not a matter of technology.
