I heard on the local Catholic radio program yesterday the humorous mention of an app called “Ordain Thyself” where smartphone users can view themselves wearing the garb of various clerics, for 99 cents.
Here’s the review from CNN:
CNN reports, “The app, called Ordain Thyself, doesn’t confer any legitimate religious credentials to its users, but it does allow iPhone owners to see what they would look like wearing the religious garb of different clerics, and read a brief and humorous overview of various world religions.”
Do you want to be a minister, but you just don’t have the time for seminary? Or maybe your desire is to be a rabbi, imam, priest, or swami. Or a Klingon priest. Well, this app can’t actually ordain you, but it can show you what you would look like and believe if you were ordained in over two dozen religions.
Ordain Thyself brings simulated ordination right to your device, meaning that you can get the title, the vestments (that means costume), and the beliefs of dozens of religions, and share your (fake) ordination with your friends!
