Technology in the religious cards space!

Technology is the all pervasive omnipresent god of sorts of the 20th century. From buying religious Christmas cards on amazon to watching sermons on you-tube. Technology has arrived in the ultimate controller of human social action- Religion. This is technology's baptism of sorts as the church has traditionally influenced social thinking even on science. To get the 'ok' green signal from the church in an intangible way speaks a great deal of its penetration. Remember how Copernicus and Galileo were persecuted for their 'heliocentricity' theory which the church maintained was against the holy scriptures? I believe not much of that influence the church had on its subjects has changed even today because, the power of the church is given to it only because the believers choose to.
