An app for confessing!
New app helps Catholics confess on the go - CNN.com
(more at the link above)(CNN) -- Bless me father for I have sinned. It has been 300 tweets since my last confession.
Whether you've been "borrowing" free Wi-Fi or coveting your neighbor's avatar -- or, heaven forbid, something worse -- a new mobile app is designed to help you atone for it.
Lame tech jokes aside, the makers of "Confession: A Roman Catholic App" say their software is seriously designed to help believers with the sacrament, and to help those who have left the church take a digital step back home.
Worry not, faithful Catholics: The $1.99 application, for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, is not intended to replace the confessional. Instead, it's designed to complement the act of confession, offering a "personal examination of conscience" (password-protected, of course) and a step-by-step guide to sin-confessing.
No word yet on the follow-up app .... i-repent.
I'd like to see an i-curse.

Isn't that amazing!!!
I was raised a Catholic. . .actually attended 12 years (including 4 years in boarding school) in Catholic schools.
And, although I respect people's faith. . .I decided that there was too many incongruities between the Church's teaching and it's actions!
Maybe the fact that a 65 year old priest molested me at the age of 11 might have open my eyes!!!
So. . .today I find my way to an universal God on my own. . .I am still a believer. . . but I have given myself permission to use my GOD GIVEN right to free will and to using my brain rather than buy into manmade dogmas.
Does it accept VISA for atonement?
Dear father I have sin-, oops sorry gotta get this text.

Hmmm ... I use iConfess.
There's already an app called iSin.
The intellectual journey that had began with Copernicus displacing humans from the centre of the Universe and continued with Darwin’s insistence that humans are merely modified monkeys has finally focused in on the very essence of life. And there was nothing special about it. The double helix is an elegant structure, but its message is downright prosaic: life is simply a matter of chemistry.

I would have to get an unlimited plan for my phone and wifi, take a few days off. I haven't been to confession since lent, 1973. Told padre I have unclean thoughts about Sister Eunice, he gave me 300 rosarys and a trip to Lourdes as pennance. Later that year he quit the priesthood and ran off with Eunice. Just joking about the pennance, but he did run off and got married
