“Overall the Church has been very positive toward technology in the past, but as humans have become more powerful, the Church has felt like it has to say no to more things.

So it needs to resurrect its own history of being technologically optimistic.”, said Brian Green, Director of Technology Ethics at Santa Clara University.
