My Newswithviews Column, Sept. 26 (‘The Nuts Are Out in Force’)

As I was writing this, House Democrats were feverishly preparing to impeach our president. On what grounds? Your guess is as good as mine. “He must’ve done something!”

Are AI Robot Priests The Future?

How much pure lunacy can a civilization stand? Robot priests. Global government by hypocrites and fools. Straitjackets as a fashion statement. Some stupid kid standing up before the UN and making adults cower. Yeah, it’s goin’ great.

God is not subjecting us to these things because He’s happy with us.

And we are not listening.


‘Artificial Priests’? Really?

Toward a truly artificial you…

First off, what’s wrong with this headline?

“Robot priests more acceptable to Protestants than Catholics, says professor” (https://www.zdnet.com/article/robot-priests-more-acceptable-to-protestants-than-catholics-says-professor/). I hope he’s not a professor of English. “Dad-burn those Catholics! Why, I like robot priests better than I like them Catholics!” All somebody had to do was write “than to Catholics.” Apparently no one there was initiated into the mysteries of English usage–which is all racist, anyway. Much better to have confusing headlines.

Anyhow, the article wonders whether “AI (Artificial Intelligence) can create better priests,” and whether “religion” can be “transformed” by AI? Ignorant think-they-know-it-alls are always looking to “transform” stuff. Oh–and “It challenges Catholicism to move toward a post-human priesthood.” We are not told any reason why Catholicism should do that. Meanwhile, hedging its bets, Union Theological Seminary is teaching its students to confess their sins to plants. That’ll have to serve until robot priests are available. Or you can confess to your car or to your toaster-oven.

I guess as long as we’re going to have Artificial Christianity we might as well have Artificial Priests and Ministers. There is some worry that there might be a question as to who gets to program the robot priest.

But if your Christianity is already that far gone, what does it matter?
