Need Holy Backup?

Spanish product designer Luis Eslava has created a Virgin Mary flash drive—presumably to back up all those things she’s been “pondering in her heart.” Available in two or four gigabytes, this Plexiglas Mother of God has a red LED heart that beats during data transfer. Her halo is engraved with the prayer, “Oh Maria, keep my data safe.” So go ahead—plug in and pray.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
