I hate when you're in church, the teacher asks everyone to turn to a particular scripture reference ... and half a dozen people (or more) pull out their iPhones.
Now, I could leave it at that. Those of you lucky enough to own an iPhone, but lame enough to have put a scripture app on it, would just think, "She's jealous her Blackberry has such a teeny screen." The rest of you would nod, because you too have been playing Connect Four: Douchebag Edition in Sunday School.
But you all know how I love to belabor a point.
First of all, do you know how obnoxious it is for the teacher to have to look around and see a bunch of people staring at their phones? Oh, but I suspect you do, which is why you pulled out the phone in the first place. So you could smugly think, "I'm not really texting. I'm getting my edification-on." Or, when you are texting, "Everyone is so judgmental, just assuming that I'm texting when I could very well be looking at scriptures." (The fact that you are, indeed, texting is irrelevant to this analysis.)
Second -- and this may apply mostly to the singles ward hell to which I have belonged for eight long years, but still -- are you seriously going to advertise the fact that you can't afford your own place at the age of 29, have instead shoved five or six other people into a house in order to only pay $200 a month in rent ... but still have a Droid? Not that there's anything wrong with materialism -- I love materialism, as you probably have surmised -- but folks.
Let's at least maintain a thin facade of anti-materialism at church, shall we?
* Fact: This is the world's most annoying hymn.
