A new job for robots was recently introduced at an expo in China- conducting funerals and praying for the dead. From PJ Media:

China unveiled a robot priest capable of performing funerals and praying for the dead, using artificial intelligence (AI) to meet the needs of a burgeoning funeral market.

The AI robot priest made an appearance at the 8th China International Funeral Expo (CIFE) in Wuhan city, central China’s Hubei province, on June 18.

According to a caption from Imaginechina,

     "This AI Robot priest provides funeral services and can pray for the deceased."

Response: Sometimes priests seem like robots when performing their duties and giving prayers but this is ridiculous. One wonders what kind of value or meaning can possibly be assigned to actual robots praying to God.

Presumably the atheist Chinese government is ok with generic unaffiliated AI priests performing ‘religious’ services including ‘artificial’ prayers.

For years the Communist government has been contending with the Catholic Church officials over choosing and ordaining Bishops and priests. This takes it to an entirely different level. It is just a matter of programming which can be entirely controlled.

Meanwhile, government officials are trying to get the growing Christian community under control though one of the most severe times of persecution ever; which recently included the tearing down of several large independent churches. Plus a new campaign to force Christian families to take down pictures of Jesus and replace them with those of the Chinese president in their homes.               *Top
