Fwd: Re: Jibguy: Don't Cancel LTAR on WJTO
I deny that it's bigotry to make sport of "organized religion"; as you may
have guessed, I am not an adherent of any irrational, superstition-
based belief system, nor do I frequent structures erected by humans
then labelled "houses of God". The religious show that precedes LTAR
on WJTO is a real piece of work. A man and a woman read a few
passages from the book of fables and myths called "The Bible", then
spend a few minutes at the end of the show declaring that the material
world is an illusion; they buy time on a REAL radio station with
REAL studios and a REAL tower that emits waves that correspond to the
REAL laws of electromagnet propagation. That's why I called their
particular show 'goofy'. About two years ago Mike Wallace interviewed
a spokesman for the Mormon belief system, and he stated that yes
some Mormons wear "sacred" underwear to protect themselves from
harm! Hey that was in the 20th century. So I could as easily said
lets hire Mormons to sort the mail. I'm an equal-opportunity offender.

Although I am not a Christian Scientist, or even a Christian, I find your
remark extremely offensive and uncalled for. Religious bigotry doesn't
belong on a radio list.
