Hateful radio host needs our prayers

  • Follow Letters

My wife and I sometimes take the opportunity to listen to the Water Cooler Moment on radio station WAAW. It never ceases to amaze me to hear the vile comments that come forth from that program.

Last week, a caller asked the host if 94.7 FM was a Christian station, because he did not recognize any love from its host and previous callers. As expected, there was a vicious attack against that gentleman. My wife and I had wanted to make that same inquiry. I must admit, the comments become unbearable at times and we turn the radio off.

I am astonished that some blacks think of themselves as the great deliverer of Augusta. If the truth is to be known, they actually do more damage than good. There are other radio stations designed to separate and divide the voting public into to ethnic voting groups. From them, we expect abrasive and infuriating comments that are designed to achieve their predetermined goal. These hosts work for the money and become quite wealthy. The surprise is to hear black stations sending the same messages. The results of their messages are more polarizing than the other stations because not only do they polarize blacks against whites, they polarize blacks against blacks.

The host condemned Sunday-morning-only Christians for failing to take up his causes. One day, people of faith must come together as they do on Monday nights in Augusta and speak love, not hate. If the host wants to foster change in Augusta, he must elicit the Christian family that has transcended color and race. These are the ones who recognize that the fight is not against flesh and blood, or black or white, but against principalities and powers not seen.

Pray for him, Augusta!

Roy and Carolyn Ellis, Augusta

Sorry, I won't be praying for

Sorry, I won't be praying for someone that wants to cause race riots. Not today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. I just pray that I will be home to protect my family from the idiots that this idiot will incite to riot as I am currently away serving this country. It used to be against the law to incite riots. Well hell, it also used to be against the law to be a traitor, so I guess things change.

"You have heard that it was

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven..." (Matthew 5:43-45a). This is a concept Jesus taught His disciples.

Nope....sorry. Sounds like

Nope....sorry. Sounds like it's probably a good thing that I haven't. I've heard of Randi Rhodes. She is a venemous woman who never has anything good to say about anything.

This host does need our

This host does need our prayers. It shows that he is not happy with himself. He has a lot of issues, lack of education, lack of common sense and no ethics at all. It amazes me to no end that he is a radio host, escpecially on a christian network. What is the problem with the "owner" of the station. Do they not know that it is illiegal, immoral and downright wrong to slander anyone. But, then we have to consider the source, here is someone who doesn't know who he is, has no respect for God or his messengers, is a "BIG LIAR" check his credentials,and a convict.
As christians the Lord commands us to love and pray for him, but we are to rebuke him for his vicious words...

Jeez intheknow, why don't you

Jeez intheknow, why don't you just call him an Uncle Tom? You were clearly trying to turn the tables by bringing up Austin Rhodes. The only reason you brought his name up is because you wanted a white target to cause strife because a black guy was down. That is called race baiting. Chief called you on it and he was dead on the money.

First of all you will never

First of all you will never hear me use the words Uncle Tom. The point I was making about Austin was that he in the past loved to used the 'N" word. A word that I would never use. I said I never listen to Ryan B. nor have intentions to do so. I was trying to make the point that if you call Ryan B. a racist and want to take him off the air, why would you not want to get rid of all .

No, you specifically brought

No, you specifically brought up a white man with the intentions of contrasting the black man that was under fire. You could have just as easily brought up any number of other racist black celebrities, but you didn't. I can't see in your heart, but it shows in your words. And calling somebody a butt kissing you know what is no better that Uncle Tom.

and to be perfectly clear, I

and to be perfectly clear, I really could care less what chief or anyone else thinks. By the way because a person is of the same race, color, pick your term, we do not have to agree but if you direct a personal attact at me, which if you read chief's remarks he did, then do not cry about when the attack is returned. By the way, I was talking about a butt kissing a hole. When I used the term earlier my comments were remeved. NOT UNCLE TOM.

Chief's statement is harsh,

Chief's statement is harsh, but the race baiting does seem pretty clear. You shouldn't resort to the same name calling when you are attacked.

okay i will leave you alone because now i believe you are the racist with a desire to tell blacks how to think or feel. Have fun.You could not debate the fact that I was limiting my remarks to local host so you went to the well " We know what you meant." I guess we can do that with your comments, you said this but you meant that. GEEZZZZZZZZZ
