High-Tech Anti-H1N1 Holy Water Dispenser

High-Tech Anti-H1N1 Holy Water Dispenser

By Robert Paul Reyes


"An Italian inventor has combined faith and ingenuity to come up with a way to keep church traditions alive for the faithful without the fear of contracting swine flu -- an electronic holy water dispenser.

The terracotta dispenser, used in the northern town of Fornaci di Briosco, functions like an automatic soap dispenser in public washrooms -- a churchgoer waves his or her hand under a sensor and the machine spurts out holy water." Reuters

Briosco deserves kudos for his marvelous invention, it will certainly help to stop the spread of H1N1.

We should all change our habits to stop the spread of the H1N1 and the seasonal flu. I wash my hands countless times every day, and I always use Purell after I use the restroom.

I doubt the efficacy of holy water, if it doesn`t kill the H1N1 virus. Holy water won`t do jack for you, just use regular water and soap, and you won`t have to pray to Jesus to spare you from getting H1N1.
