Extremely Religious Elderly Man Does Not Care for the Internets


A large number of young people … establish forms of communication that do not increase humaneness but instead risk increasing a sense of solitude and disorientation,” Pope Benedict XVI said today, at a Vatican conference on culture. He also said that young people were being “numbed” by the Internet, adding that the technology was creating an “educational emergency — a challenge that we can and must respond to with creative intelligence,” and that the Internet was “blurring the boundary between truth and illusion.” Whereas Catholicism makes those boundaries clear.
