Now...having said that...I come across the following article:
28 December 2005God help us, every one. It's bad enough with this whole Attack of the iPod People thing we have going, but combine the fanatical devotion to iTech with...well, with fanaticism and what do you have?
SERMONS ON YOUR MP3 PLAYER
By Vanessa Allen
VICARS are putting sermons on the internet so worshippers can play them on their iPods.
Religious leaders believe the hi-tech approach will help those such as the elderly and infirm who can't get to church but also reach out to the young. Users subscribe to an internet service allowing them to download on to their iPod, a system known as podcasting.
Rev Shannon Ledbetter said: "For the elderly and housebound this is fantastic, all you need to do is fix them up with an iPod and they're good to go.
"For the young also, there is so much information there, which can help to answer their questions about their faith."
Rev Ledbetter, 43, of St Mary's church, Knowsley, Merseyside, added: "This will bring church numbers up, because people who tune in to the podcasts will want to experience the full spectrum of worship." Steve Evans, of Bridge Chapel Christian church in Liverpool, said: "Large numbers of new people are coming down and joining simply because of the downloads and podcasts.
"All our congregation has to do is subscribe to the service and every time they plug their mp3 player in, the updates will automatically be transferred."
The Bush Administration. But we knew that already.
BTW: LOVE the title of that article. iGod. Hah!
