I am a Christian - born again Republican? Well anyway, I have listened to the show off & on for years - when it was off and on - Yeah, so I have to tell you I've heard some anti-Christian jokes a few too many Newt jokes from you guys and not enough Clinton jokes. (Is it possible that a Dem. might feel the opposite?)
So I think what I'm saying is that I sometimes feel uncomfortable listening to a program that seems to take pleasure in mocking me (my beliefs) and I have been tuning out sometimes.
I do plan to get tickets for the Miami visit - please be kind ;-}
I can't imagine what jokes you heard on PHC that struck you as anti-Christian. I was brought up to worship God but not to worship my fellow Christians and when Christians place themselves above humor, they are guilty of the sin that begins with the letter P.
As for Republicans/Democrats, we do a pretty mealy-mouthed Clinton just about every week on the show. The man can maunder with the best of them. I don't think we've so much as referred to Newt in the past six months.
