This week’s Supreme Court “gay marriage” case is pitting pundit against pundit. After Bill O’Reilly referred to same-sex marriage opponents as “Bible thumpers,” Rush Limbaugh went on the defensive.
Comparing O’Reilly to Ted Baxter, the vain, unpopular anchorman on the old “Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Limbaugh accused the Fox News host of “marginalizing” a good portion of his own audience.
Then Rush blasted another TV commentator, this time MSNBC’s Toure, who Rush said had “smeared” Dr. Ben Carson (FREE audio).
Toure, Limbaugh said, “is a classic example of somebody who is dangerous precisely because of what he thinks he knows that isn’t right, and he took it upon himself to try to destroy Dr. Ben Carson. He did it in a vile, almost uncivilized manner. The things that he said about Ben Carson were just filthy. They were despicable. It was worse than calling him an Uncle Tom.”
Unlike many in the media, Dr. Savage devoted considerable time to this week’s celebrations of Easter and Passover (FREE audio).
He’s certain that “God can’t believe what’s happened to this country on so many levels. Violence. Pornography. Drugs. And here we are talking about something as trivial as gay marriage.”
Then he offered his own interpretation of the story of Passover: “We are all slaves to our own addictions, wants and lusts. Those are our Egypts. We are in the Egypt of our addictions. We are both the slaves and the slave masters … The Seder is a time to remember that we are all enslaved by ourselves, and we’re supposed to free ourselves.”
Like Limbaugh, Mark Levin was furious with Bill O’Reilly for dismissing gay marriage opponents as “Bible thumpers” (FREE audio).
“You’re a practicing Catholic,” Levin said of the Fox News host. “Have you heard what your priests have to say, all the way up to the pope? … You sound like Obama with your ‘clinging to your guns and Bible’ line.”
As a constitutional lawyer, Levin is ideally suited to the task of analyzing the Supreme Court case (FREE audio).
He noted that this unelected Court is once again imposing its political will on the rest of America, instead of waiting for citizens to come to a consensus about what direction society should take.
As a resident of Israel, Aaron Klein is in the perfect position to provide the most accurate analysis of the president’s recent trip there.
Klein also reveals his latest findings on government surveillance and corruption, all being funded by American tax dollars.
His guests include a forensic analyst who claims to have startling revelations about Obama’s life, and veteran comedian Jackie Mason, who had plenty to say about the president’s trip, as well as about immigration reform and amnesty for illegals (FREE audio).
“Stand tall on marriage.”
That was the advice Dr. John Eastman offered Laura and her listeners this week. The Chairman of the National Organization for Marriage contends that the definition of marriage should not be expanded to gay couples because “homosexual couples cannot procreate” (FREE audio).
Eastman added, “If people demonstrate courage and stand up to the fact that kids are better off with a mom and a dad, then ultimately we’ll be victorious on this issue.”
