Your show Friday afternoon was the last straw for me. You have said some cold, rude things that you consider funny, but your “pre-cripple or post-cripple” comment took the cake.
It was unbelievably unsensitive and cold. Saying if someone went to heaven, would they be “pre-cripple” or “post-cripple” was obnoxious! I was injured when I was 17, a senior in high school. I use a wheelchair because my spinal cord was severed when I had my accident.
First of all, saying “cripple” is extremely ignorant. It is like using the “N word” to people who are disabled.
Secondly, you were so flippant with your comment. You have no idea what it’s like for a 17 year old high school senior to be able to walk one day and not be able to walk the next day. I have a sense of humor, but you’re insensitivity is absolutely unbelievable. If your wife or daughter had an accident and became disabled do you think you’d so lightly say something like that? I don’t think so.
I am also sending an email to my local station regarding that remark.
I really appreciate you making sure to not just talk to me, but also to other people about me. By contacting the local station you are not handling conflict in a Biblical manor, yet you are holding me to a Christ-like standard. If I have offended you, the Bible says you should come to me first. If it makes you feel better to tattle on me that is cool, but I would have rather have had this conversation between us first.
I was in no way making fun of crippled people. As for that term being politically incorrect, that is a mistake on my part if that is the case. In our world I have no way of knowing what is politically correct to everyone. It changes daily and is different for everyone. I never thought of that term as derogatory, but I will acquiesce to you on that since you would know better than I.
As for the content you completely missed the point. Someone had said everyone in heaven will be in there 20’s because that is when our bodies were at their best. The point I was making is, how did we come up with an age limit for heaven. There is nothing scriptural about that. It is just something people think and then give it Biblical merit where there is none. I was pointing out the ludicrous nature of that statement because what if I was crippled in my teens, but in heaven you are automatically twenty something. That doesn’t seem right to me. That is where I was coming from. I didn’t mean to be offensive in what I said. I am sensitive to disabilities cause I have a nephew who needs a walker and I would have no problem with him hearing that conversation and I love that kid more than life.
