As is known, while the Holy Father, as an elderly person, has embraced new technology, it is well known that not all the over 70's are yet online and so, while happy to receive their subscriptions and prescriptions, are not regular readers of The Tablet's exciting web presence.
Concerned that the recent survey on the 'new mass' may have been completed extensively by a new generation of Catholics whose computer usage is so alarmingly regular that concerns have been raised that they are 'part man, part machine', The Tablet has set up an initiative called, 'Call to Action: Press twice to dissent!'
|The Tablet: Pastoral care in the community|
As well as forming an excellent method for its readers to complete surveys in order to reaffirm themselves and the magazine they love in their distance from the Catholic Church's teachings and shared sorrow and regret at the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI, the 'panic button' scheme also means that The Tablet office plays its part in care in the community.
The scheme, 'Call to Action! Press Twice to Dissent!', also means that The Tablet can alert care companies if their underpaid workers forget to turn up to an appointment to empty a commode, do some light shopping for a client, or make them a sandwich.
Prime Minister David Cameron said, 'It is this kind of initiative that makes me believe my vision of a Big Society is the right direction for the country. It is wonderful that The Tablet is coming to the aid of its readership and assisting in fomenting dissent against what is quite likely one of the last remaining bulwarks against a totalitarian State left.'
