On Religion In The News

I appeared on a local TV program last Sunday, “Religion In The News,” to say a bit about a lecture series being held at Butler University this year on the theme of global Christianity. Here’s the clip!

    Does nobody in the U.S. know that the ‘th’ at the end of ‘McGrath’ is silent?

    Interesting vid, though those chairs look like something left over from the “Land of the Giants” set.

    Nope, Just Sayin’, they don’t. When I am in Ireland I pronounce it the correct way, but here I have to pronounce it the accepted American way or have everyone respond with “muh What?”

      Educate them, please educate them!  In line with your TV clip remarks, please teach them that McGrath as a surname predates the U.S. and people with that surname are a global phenomenon!

    Great to hear and see you in action, James. Always interesting to see and hear somebody you normally only read!

    (oh, and we’d say MuhGrah here in the UK – or at least I think most people would, certainly I’ve never heard it with a ‘th’ on the end)

      Now, that’s what I call civilization!

    James,
    you are rockin’ the goatee!

    So I was wondering why James ended up in close-up as the thumbnail for the video. Turns out it isn’t just about time (who was on screen at time X), but YouTube “uses a complicated algorithm that tries to determine the most significant moment of the video, or the frame most representative of its contents.”

    Got to be good for the ego, that.

    Wow, according to a complex algorithm I am the most significant thing in this video? Who knew? Thanks for sharing that! :-)
