Not to be outdone by the Catholic Church with its iPod wielding Bishops and text messaging Pontiffs, the Rev. Canon David Parrott blessed mobile phones and laptop computers today at the St. Lawrence Jewry Church in London. The service, he said, was to "remind the capital’s busy office workers that God’s grace can reach them in many ways." Except through novelty bud earphones – those clearly belong to the devil himself.
