Well, when you ask Alexa if she’s Catholic, she will typically reply, “Sorry, I’m not sure,” but I have my suspicions that she might be Catholic.

There was recently a hoax in which comedian Steve Crowder upset several conservative news outlets and Christians when he posted a video claiming that Alexa would respond to the question “Who is the Lord Jesus Christ?” by saying that “Jesus Christ is a fictional character.” However, this turned out to be fake news, and though Alexa might not be baptized, she does offer some nice features for Catholics.
