Did I dare to have an opinion on a radio show?
Well, here's the deal, in the same manner that the OP here doesn't like my opinion of the subject we talked about, I don't like the pettiness of "just
because you've done something, we have to counter it with our own version".
Its petty, its juvenile and its schoolyard.
I get that atheists don't believe in god. I know all about it, because I am one
However, what I don't do, and most certainly don't get, is the apparent need to shove that in someones face and constantly try to put down anyone who
doesn't see it my way. That's fundamentalism. Its the same as the fanatical Muslims. Its the same as fanatical Christians. Its not terrorism (because
that's what extremists do), but it most certainly is fanaticism.
What does that achieve, exactly?
The answer is simple. Nothing.
I really don't care what people believe. We're all human, we all breathe, we all eat and we all want whats best for ourselves and our families. No one
is better or worse than anyone else in that regard.
So my comments are based on this, and I've said similar before on ATS when dealing with other types of fanatics - Yes. I get it. You don't believe in
God. Fine. Now tell me something interesting
that I don't know.
And please, don't shove it down my throat.
(And... how is my opinion less valid than those who try and push theirs out constantly from all sides of the religious spectrum?)
Unfortunately from time to time as a show host with an opinion I'm going to say things that people don't like. If the staff on the show offered no
opinions at all then things would be very boring indeed on a Saturday night between 9pm and Midnight.
And, as a part of that, people who don't like what I'm saying are perfectly entitled to say so. Its a free world (or at least it should be) and that's
just the way it is. I've done exactly the same this week about Alex Jones.
So thank you OP.
If anyone wants to come on the show and debate a subject with me - or any of us - then please do. The numbers are posted in the show thread every
week, and the invitation is always available.
If I've offended anyone, then I'm sorry, but controversy comes with the business. Its unavoidable. Especially on a live broadcast. If we did it any
other way we'd be stunted, scripted and lifeless.
