Official calls for `digital equality'

A SENIOR Vatican official has appealed to the United Nations to help bridge the "digital divide" in information technology that separates the rich from the poor.

Archbishop John Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, told a meeting of the UN General Assembly on June 17 that technology must help each person become spiritually aware and more conscious of the dignity of his or her humanity.

Access to IT was a matter of justice and a right for all, he said and discrimination against women, must be eliminated. All technological development ought to release the creativity of the human person, he said.
