Prayer Outsourcing

Apparently joining the rest of the world in outsourcing everything to India, the Catholic church is transfering prayer requests and special masses (done for a certain donation amount) to the priests in India, that both have less work and income than their American counterparts.

I will resist the obvious commentary on this as I think most people should be about to see the several layers of mockery this makes of the relationship between man and God. I would like to point out the irony that I see when compared to many computer-related professions. I mean if your priest can charge you (much like a lawyer or accountant) for his time praying for you… shouldn’t it be reasonable for your techie friend to be compensated the next time he spends two hours fixing your computer?
