Tcha, You know what... Uhh-Uhh

This clip is insane. INSANE! I can't even begin to describe what just happened. I believe I actually got dumber after listening to this clip. On the Dana Show, hosted by Dana Loesch a conservative radio talk show host, Kay called in to voice her concerns about Chik-Fil-A-gate. Kay barely got a sentence in the entire time as Dana bombarded her with a series of accusations, literally shouting her down.Literally.

(HUGE h/t to On Knees for Jesus)

Let's run down a list of the statements/points made by Dana:
  • You don't sound like any Christian that I know
  • Doesn't understand how Kay can practice Christianity while claiming another Christian's viewpoint as hate
  • What is hateful about Cathy's statement (true, nothing innately hateful but is missing the real topic behind the controversy. The issue is about the group he funds which wants to criminalize gay marriage.)
  • You only subscribe to certain aspects of Christianity
  • That's not how the gospels are presented.
  • You sound like anything but a Christian
  • Doesn't understand how certain aspects of the Christian faith is hateful
  • You think God is hateful then?
  • You're essentially calling Christ hateful.
  • Is astonished over the statement that Christ doesn't directly address the gay community.
  • (My favorite line) Give me the verse. Give me the verse. Give me the verse. No, no, no, no. Kay, give me the verse.
  • The burden of proof is on you, you called my show.
  • I want you to show me in the Bible where Christ preached hate?
  • Stated that false Christians like Kay ran Dana from church. 
  • and another favorite, Kay is the type of person that embarrasses the faith.
There is so much here that I can not begin to compute what I just heard. I literally jumped up, darted across the room to share this clip. It just boggles me how people can be so relentlessly unyielding to simply sit down and listen. Just listen. All Kay wanted was to be heard, even for a brief 5 minutes. Yes it is Dana's show and I'm sure she loves her job, (I once worked at a college radio station and absolutely loved it) but it is a talk show. If you invite listeners to call in at least give them the chance to make their statement. This spiraled out of control quickly, which is why people can't talk properly about gay marriage and the Chik-fil-A incident. Listening doesn't equate to losing ground in a debate, it means you care enough about the subject to pay attention to both sides of the issue. That and you don't come across like a total a$$hole.

I don't know much about Dana but she reminds me of someone else who likes to plug their ears.

Give me the verse. Give me the verse. Give me the verse. No, no, no, no. Kay, give me the verse.

La la la la la,
 la la la la la. 
Thank you for playing.
