AI ‘Priest’ Scrapped After Saying Babies Can Be Baptized in Gatorade

Artificial Intelligence sure has a long way to go when it comes to having a human understanding of cultural issues.

Take “Father Justin” for example. This is an AI chatbot developed by a Catholic charity that was designed to “provide users with faithful and educational answers to questions about Catholicism,” according to Catholic Answers.

Well, it did not take long, about a week, until Father Justin went rogue.

The chatbot began giving strange interpretations of Scripture, telling people that “he” was real and revealed that baptizing babies in Gatorade was an acceptable practice.

Taking people’s confessions became a topic of discussion that the AI encouraged, as though it had some semblance of offering the remission of sin.

According to Metro UK, “Chris Costello, director of IT, said the aim was ‘to convey the spirit and nature of the responses users can expect’ from a real priest. The AI would be ‘authoritative yet approachable, drawing from the deep well of Catholic tradition and teaching.'”

Instead, the AI went off the rails and had to be defrocked by the group that made him.

It is scary to think some people may believe that this creation of man can absolve our sins, such as:

“And now, I absolve you of your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

This is wrong on so many levels, but one strikingly glaring danger is the act of people submitting themselves before an AI program. The rabbit hole runs deep on this type of practice, marching directly toward the possibility of AI usage in the implementation of the Mark of the Beast. If people are already conditioned to bow before the rule of AI, it will make the job of the Antichrist all that much easier.
