       I had called upon my friend, Julie Davis, one day in the autumn of last year and found her in deep conversation with a very fit gentleman with wild, sandy hair. With an apology for my intrusion, I was about to withdraw when Davis pulled me abruptly into the room and closed the door behind me.
       "You could not possible have come at a better time, my dear Scott," she said cordially.
       "I was afraid that you were engaged."
       "So I am. Very much so."
       "Then I can wait in the next room."
       "Not at all. This gentleman, Mr. McConaughey, has been my podcast partner and helper in many of my most successful cases, and I have no doubt he will be of the utmost use to me in yours also."
       The fit gentleman half rose from his chair and gave a bob of greeting, with a quick little questioning glance from his dark eyes.
       "Try the settee," said Davis, relapsing into her armchair and putting her fingertips together, as was her custom when in judicial moods. "I know, my dear Scott, that you share my love of film and of all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum routine of everyday life. Mr. McConaughey was about to tell me why he must remove his shirt in every film he makes."

Challenging Opinions Interview: Sticking Up for the Faith

And now for something completely different, from Julie ...
Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.
I Peter 3:15
William Campbell invited me to chat with him at his podcast, Challenging Opinions. The podcast exists to "test all ideas, left and right, liberal and conservative, progressive and libertarian."

That idea in itself is pretty challenging but when I listened to sample episodes William was a fair and impartial interviewer, which is a rare quality these days.

I thought we were going to discuss my post Obedience: The Dirtiest Word in America so I was prepared to talk about being an American Catholic during the political season. I think that post was only what drew me to William's attention. We never actually discussed that topic, but wound up covering everything from faith in God to Catholic misdeeds to the future of the Church.

I was going completely off the cuff, which I think shows sometimes, but that in itself was fair. Shouldn't we be able to shed some light on faith and the Church when we're asked about it? It was a like a particularly invigorating workout and I really enjoyed talking with William.

LISTEN at Challenging Opinions or iTunes.

===========

For why I'm a happy Catholic and for a further response now that I've looked into the documents William asked me about ... see my post at Happy Catholic.
