Online praying service for the modern Christian

Introducing Information Age Prayer: praying for the busy modern Christian!

I can't possibly put it better than PZ Myers did over at his blog, so I'll just quote it here.

Do you feel like you don't pray enough? Are you too busy working, or playing golf, or fornicating to actually take the time out to get down on your knees and praise the invisible man in the sky? Well, there is a service for you: Information Age Prayer. For the low, low price of $3.95 a month, they will run your prayer of choice through a voice synthesizer every day, and allow the computer to speak to god for you. Is a loved one sick? For only $9.95 per month, the computer will beg god to help them 5 times a day! Throw enough money at this service, and you can just skip church altogether, not waste any time with the holy muttering, and get all the benefits of piety, every single one. Sign up today!

You gotta admit, the bastard's got some salesmanship talents right there.

And no, sadly, this is not a joke – they accept actual payments via Paypal. Either it's for real, or it's a prank, which would be shamelessly and disgustingly cruel to the many gullible fools who would gladly sign up for this sort of stuff. (But then, if they're dumb enough to want to subscribe to this stuff ...)
