Tubes To God

Computers will recite prayers for the busy

"The concept is simple. Users have to click on their religion of choice on the home page, which leads them to a list of prayers such as the “Our Father” for Christians and the "Fajr" for Muslims.

Prices are based on the length of the texts and therefore vary. For Catholics, for example, the monthly fee for a daily prayer ranges from 70 cents for the “Hail Mary” to $49.97 for the rosary. And for the hesitant ones ($50 dollars, it’s a lump sum), the button offers a reminder: "Show God you’re serious - Get the complete Rosary Package." It’s an offer that’s hard to resist.

Once the payment is done, a computer belonging to the site's host will recite the requested prayer, every day, using the software, "The Last Cry." For Muslims, the site specifies that the computer speakers are turned towards Mecca."

Jesus, I thought you were kidding.

They offer prayers for many different situations (peace, health, etc), but unfortunately I didn't see one for the terminally stupid.

This is a perfect example of why politicians and other sales-types love religious people - they tend to believe anything.

What, you don't believe that turning the computer speakers toward Mecca will enable you to get your money's worth with Allah?
That will be 2 Our Fathers and 5 Hail Maries and $15.95 please!
