For someone who says he doesn't read Scripture, "I am the GOAT" is either a reference to something weird that I've missed, or a very Biblical reference.

Well, Popes Leo XIII and Pius XII, as well as numerous saints disagree with you. And also mocking the words of Christ is blasphemy.

Are you one of those people who think pious reading of Scripture is "Protestant"?

I've never read that. And there is a reason why the Bible wasn't available to laymen. Without the Bible being available, Protestants wouldn't exist.

Which begs the question: why is it that as technology multiplies so do protestant sects?
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!

Very astute point, Blind Horus. I think technology is a mixed-bag. On one hand it allowed me and countless others to discover Tradition and keep in touch with faraway relative but most of technology is used for pointless and sinful purposes.

I was thinking this over the other night actually. Providentially, God could have allowed the level of technology we have today just for this purpose, foreseeing the issues that would arise in the Church toward the apostasy we are seeing today. I certainly wouldn't have become Catholic if not for modern technology, and even if I did, I would probably be unaware of real Catholicism without it.

On the other hand, the complete moral destitution offered by things such as instant access to pornography and other vile voyeuristic things has certainly led our world down a dark road.
