Twittering in church, with the pastor's OK

Time Magazine's newest issue (with Michelle Obama on the cover) has a very interesting article about Twittering during church services

It's hard to imagine a Catholic pastor in a typical Catholic parish allowing Twittering to happen during his homily. It's a fun thought though.

By the way, I can't help but notice traditionally Catholic ethnic names in articles about Protestant churches (e.g., McDonald and McLaughlin in this article).
