Lutheran basements?! ???
K_Dubb and others might get it. It is a Lutheran, especially Midwest, thing. Garrison Keillor made a career out of it, basically, with his show. Apparently someone made a play about the subject.

I was baptized Lutheran and I still donít understand what youíre talking about. Maybe itís an East coast thing. Care to explain?

It is more a Midwest deal, though happens elsewhere to an extent but maybe no basements. Especially Scandinavian Lutheran churches.  It is cold and relatively easy to dig so there are basements. Folks gather for coffee etc in the basement after church. Group meals, fundraisers, cooking classes, social events, youth events, charitable organizing, and even, depending on place, things like AA etc are held there and ladies often hang out there to gossip, cook, and what-not. Sort of the female version of a small town's barber shop for men in the gossip or news regard. Nothing nefarious.

I'm likely explaining it poorly. K_Dubb or others might do it better justice.

No, I get it. The same things go on at churches here. Iíve just never heard it referred to as a ďbasement thingĒ before. It originally sounded nefarious but I understand itís just the mundane now.

Some funny callers in open line on Friday. ...He got Ian on that one.
Yeah, it was amusing.  Of course, much better than Jorch.  I got a laugh over the old crotchety guy bitching about how we've all been mislead about the atomic bombings and Ian punted and told him he needed to take it up with someone other than him.  Plus, where else could you hear Gatling gun retorts, late at night. ;)

You pretty much nailed it.  I grew up with more than half of my midwest childhood church experiences in a basement.  Pot luck meals, Sunday school, etc.  It wasn't Catholic, so no "funny business" with a priest, though. ;)

Yep. Don't want to go "in the rectory."

 I like how some callers try to "get" Ian to agree with their positions by subtly, or not so subtly, claim it is Christian or get on air claiming such. Like the curmudgeon who is upset with "youth" who put their feet up on the upholstery and people who don't like "the beauty we give them" (in his example of beauty is subway upholstery? WTF?) And wants Singapore like discipline (caning, I presume) and "work camps"  and a "one world government" to do so, as all Christians are "waiting for." Hilarious.

Me neither, but it's a commonplace here (I'm in the Northeast), and not only in churches but other meeting buildings and even homes.  Main floor is for more formal gatherings and business, cellar is for less-formal ones, although that's not a rigid rule.  Often in such buildings it's as many steps up to the main floor as down to the basement from the entrance, and just as convenient.

I've been in a VFW HQ where the bar was upstairs (main floor), and one where the bar was downstairs (basement).  I don't know which is more prevalent.

Ian had the best exchange with one of C2C's woo bullshit callers, in this case Joe from Monterey, I've ever heard.  He was the first caller in open lines, and as usual was speaking very authoritatively about spirits and the afterlife and his vast knowledge and experience in the field. Ian tore him apart, challenging everything Joe was putting forth as accepted common knowledge.  He really seemed at wits end when Ian even asked for some reference to the existence of "spirit guides."  This call should be mandatory listening for every wannabe paranormal podcaster.

Ian also expressed "sympathy for the devil," both praising the Stone's song and claimed the best explanation for the situation. If not for the Devil we would not exist he claims.  There is some logic there, I suppose, but he seems to give more agency to the Devil than others (us which is not that uncommon- at least in earlier times- but even God,) somewhat strange for a Deacon?

He also has "challenged warlocks," but they could not harm him.

I've gotten into several pissing matches with Punnett about his such being a Sheep In Wolves Clothing; like the time he once did a show about the fallacy of The Bible. 

The examples he gave were in fact actual contradictions as found in various versions, but what he failed to disclose is that all versions except for The King James, are translated from corrupted texts of Alexandria, Egypt.  The New King James is also based upon the faulty, Alexandrian texts.  Then there's the fact that no two of those version even agree with each other.

The King James Version, is translated from ancient Hebrew Scripture, discovered at Antioch, Syria, and they are perfect, without contradiction.  There are only two errors in the English translation of, The King James.

Punnett quit Coast to Coast because he was embarrassingly outed as an subversive infiltrator of the clergy, despite his phony excuse.  Notice he's back on the air now.  The Episcopal Church is full of these sneaks.  I suspect he's a high degree Mason, at the level where one swears a loyal oath to Satan.

Ian does have good taste in music, though, I must say, and he is a most excellent interviewer, when he doesn't stack the deck to support his hidden agenda.  Unfortunately, he frequently plants demonic seeds, with great subtly.

A QUICK COMPARISON OF BIBLE VERSIONS
Quick Comparison of Bible Versions
https://www.chick.com/information/article?id=quick-comparison-of-bible-versions

It is often said that all Bible versions are basically the same, that their differences are just minor wording changes. Read the following comparison between the King James Version and the best-selling modern Bible translation, the New International Version, and then decide for yourself whether or not this is true. We have added bold text to assist the reader in recognizing changes.

This is only a very small sampling of the many changes between these versions. For a much more complete discussion of how the New International Version attacks the deity of Christ, and cuts away at the foundations of the Christian church, read "If the Foundations Be Destroyed" by Chick Salliby.
