you know i can understand where the man is coming from - he gave up a lucrative job to do this to help people and only asks for donations - he doesn't charge people a monthly rate or anything like that and i guess the fact that he puts in a lot of time to the show only to have people say they really enjoy it and ask for more and such and then are not willing to even donate a few dollars i can understand that being a little annoying... i for one find a lot of things he says interesting and that is why i wanted other people to hear it - that was the reason for my first post... i don't want people to be driven away because of unnecessarily condescending and just downright insensitive comments that he makes toward Religious people every once in a while - things can be said in different ways i guess was my point and people tend to be driven away because they may feel as though this person does not understand their world view and therefore they won't listen to anything else he says about other subjects, which i find to be informative.
Bonus: I am sharing the facts about spanking and this video in two Facebook posts right now. Great timing, Stefan.
