If you don't like the show why are you listening? It's not my kind of show
either, but this really isn't the place to be debating religeon, I keep
all of my religeous views off public forums such as this one because as
Scott Beach put it "Religeon and politics often make some people lose all
perspective and give way to ranting and raving and carrying on like
emotional children- they either refuse to discuss it with reason or else
they prefer arguementym which is hardly a way to convince anyone in an
arguement..." and went on to complete that sentence in about 2
minutes.....a favorite of mine from the old days of the Dr Demento show.
But it is so true. With all that is going on it is hard to keep the
politics completely off any list, however religeon is just not something
that you discuss. I give hats off to Bob for running the show for those
who do want to listen to such a thing.......hell the guy's a local radio
station owner, for that alone he deserves a lot of credit.
