London church blesses laptops and phones

Quote:
Laptops and Blackberry mobile phones have been blessed in a church ceremony in the City of London.

Canon David Parrott blessed the gadgets at the St Lawrence Jewry church in an updated version of a traditional "Plough Monday" back-to-work ceremony.

Note however that ebook readers were specifically excluded from the blessings as they are "the work of The Devil, with their newfangled eInk displays and suspiciously paper-like look."

Didn't that used to be considered a bad thing once?

(Please forgive my grammar, my brain is dribbling out of my ears through reading and categorising way too much documentation. And I'm only on the first pass)

The city of London is stuffed full of financial workers during the week, and is largely empty on Sundays. I think that this is just a new cleric's attempt to drum up a congregation.

Yes, but as it's the Church of England, I think they were for the translation of the Bible in English and available to the masses. I mean, King James authorized the writing of the Bible in English in 1611! And in 1526, William Tyndale already made the very first translation... (though he had to have it printed in Germany...)
