  • Today's religious teens forgo social networking for Lent

    [photopress:god.jpg,full,center] Do you know what I gave up for Lent? Nothing, I’m not religious. But kids these days, I tell you! Do you know what they’re giving up for Lent? MySpace. And Facebook. In this modern, connected world of Social Networking, that’s quite a fast indeed. Sites like Facebook and MySpace can be quite addictive, and I can only imagine the anguish these… Read More

  • Hackers declare war on Scientology in YouTube video: Kids have too much time on their hands

    Why are people so infatuated with Scientology? Really, who cares? Laughably, this video that surfaced at the weekend “declares war” on the religion. TorrentFreak interviewed the group responsible—or at least someone claiming to be knowledgeable about the group—for the video and they come across as a bunch of shrill 14-year-olds: “Our ultimate goal is to let… Read More

  • Churches turn to Halo 3 for new recruits


    Shooting video game guns for Jesus (SVGGFJ) I remember when churches used to encourage young men to take up arms for the cross, telling them to raze faraway towns because their people prayed to a different man in the sky than they did. Now churches have to haul out Halo 3 just to get Johnny Runnynose to show up on Wednesday evenings. Yup, the Times sent a guy to the middle of nowhere to report… Read More

  • For God So Loved The World He Created Building B?

    I’m not a religious man, per se, but let’s just assume that I believe in some sort of cosmic energy force that connects everyone and everything in space and time and that, for the sake of argument, we’ll refer to this entity as “God”. My advice to you would be to let God be the wireless router on the superhighway of life. Now let’s assume that there’s… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Heavenly Audio Gear


    In my Brooklyn neighborhood, I’m surrounded by Christians, Hasidic and non-Hasidic Jews, Rastafarians, Santeria initiates, and the occasional Sikh. The MP3 player market must have similar diversity, right?naïveriffic! Well, not quite… in fact, I was disappointed at the dearth of religious zeal wrapped in a shamelessly commercial product–though Kosher cell phones do give me… Read More

  • iRosary: Worship the Bishop of Rome and Rock Out to Groovy Tunes

    Celebrate your love for God and music with the iRosary, a concept by Tino Dobra. The iRosary combines a rosary’s beads—here, just one bead that acts as a cord length regulator—and a crucifix with the iPod’s earbud cords. So now you can jog in the park or pump serious iron with the Good Lord watching your back. There’s also a mode that helps users learn prayers. Read More

  • Solar Powered Talking Bible: Portable, Instant Deliverance

    For the righteous and pure of heart comes a solar powered, electronic talking Bible. God’s warriors can listen to both the Old and New Testament, switching between chapters and verses with the push of a button. (My favorites include Leviticus 18:22 and Austin 3:16.) Becoming a member of the flock in the 21st century costs $100, but your soul will be eternally virtuous. Product Page… Read More

  • MP3 Players Usher in New Era of World Peace

    Here are two MP3 players that hopefully will bridge the gap between religions. The first is a concept device by Manworks Design. It’s a flash-based MP3 player that would have a chrome-plated steel body in the shape of a cross. The 1GB player, which would have an OLED-display, is meant to be worn around the neck. The second is a real watch marketed toward members of the Islamic faith… Read More

  • Shabbat Shalom (Inside A Phone)

    Lately it seems that Israel is really becoming a frontrunner in the world of advancing technology. Between firefighting devices and advanced weapons systems, someone managed to squeeze a Kosher cellphone into the mix. Designed for the Israeli Army, the Shabbatphone was designed to allow those who need to make calls during Shabbat to do so. It works by allowing the user to operate the phone in… Read More
