  1. Very valid points about being respectful hosts. In my previous comments, I didn’t mean to suggest that you yell at him or even challenge him, or any other guest. You were very and appropriately respectful.

    I was just disappointed he was “still” so mainstream… and yet it’s a good reminder where most fellow believers are, politically. Mainly, I was venting… Personally, I’m still sort of coming to grips with not being a card-carrying Republican… Just 5 years ago, I was spouting the same talking points. I’m thankful that, wherever we’re at on the political journey, Jesus is Lord, and the more I learn in any facet of life, the more amazing He becomes in my awareness.

  2. Doug – we always appreciate the tone of your comments. Steven and I just wanted to point out that we agree with several points you made in your previous comments. I think the part about how we treat guests was directed more at offline comments we had gotten.
