Virtual Pastors

This is different. Virtual Pastors ... Hmmm.

"We have the technology" (remember the TV show The Six Million Dollar Man?) Well now we have The Virtual Preacher Man. You've heard of search committees looking for pastors for a church. Well with this concept you can keep changing your pastor every week. There is a company that has developed virtual pastors - computer generated characters that preach (from sermons on the internet) and tell jokes and have various life experiences that they share with their congregation. The congregation gives electronic feedback after every sermon to further refine the personality and style of their "pastor."

Does this remind anyone of Max Headroom?

This is hilarious - it sounds like many of us may be out of a job. Read the rest of the story here.
