Quote from: The Coincidence Kid on April 05, 2009, 01:04:20 AMI can barely stand him anymore. He manages the discussion to a microscopic degree and treats the guests like children; very passive-aggressive too. At the same time he acts like a pre-pubescent boob. A person like this would be on my shit list if I had to interact with them in my daily life.Please, no more personality disorder am. Save us, Knapp; you're our only hope.
Quote from: Centurion73 on April 05, 2009, 12:57:33 PMI like how the guest "PROVED" to him how there was never a definitive letter written by a person or persons KNOWN to be Jack The Ripper, still Ian has to argue with the guest because he and his theory were proven wrong, how he states " they all want to get caught."
Quote from: EvB on April 05, 2009, 03:23:35 PMThe guest was great - and I loved the show. BTW, Centurion, did you notice the passionate and supportive words he had to say about some of your professional brethren? This is actually just an abrupt change of subject, I'm not chiding you. But, I did think of you when I was listening to that part of the show.
Quotehe seemed to accept his pet theories being shot down.
Quote from: Frys Girl on April 08, 2009, 08:46:35 PMI respected him a little more after this past weekend. I was grading and grading and didn't feel like puking after anything he said. Although his rant about not being on the expert's site amid the other media sources was annoying. Maybe because George Snoory has ruined the name of coast to coast?

Quote from: PhantasticSanShiSan on April 09, 2009, 08:08:35 PMYeah man, good to see you, and I was wondering the same thing. Hope all's well in UFO land.
Quote from: EvB on April 09, 2009, 03:09:10 AMUS??! HERE!? NEVER!!!! ;
Quote from: nika01 on April 12, 2009, 10:34:08 AM However, he is turning into an interview bully. Often a guest will want to go where Ian doesnt want him to..yet.The few times I have written to him be has been hyper defensive, bordering on hostile towards any well meant criticism.
Quote from: sociald on March 14, 2009, 02:21:01 PMI used to like Ian but lately his stupid jokes are really getting on my nerves. If he really thinks he is some damn commedian, then why not give up hosting C2C on weekends and just go do stand up commedy. From listening to his pathetic jokes he would fail in an instant. I just don't get who ever told him he was funny.

Quote"Where's Steven Segal when you need him?" So inappropriate!
QuoteMaybe you can blame it on his Lent sacrifice - BREAD.
QuoteIn the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches the people to be careful not to perform their good works for the poor to be admired by others. Then he talks about how prayer should not be a public display of our eloquence and piety to be seen by others. Fasting comes under this admonition as well.
QuoteObviously some people were using fasting as a ?holiness? barometer...They hoped that someone would ask them what?s wrong. Then they could answer, ?I?m fasting.? ?Wow,? the person would respond, ?you sure are holy. You must love God a lot.
QuoteNo one should suspect you are fasting. It is between you and God. The Reward ? Jesus continued, ?But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you? (6:17-18).
QuoteJohn Piper noted, that as Jesus teaches it, fasting is an intensely Godward act. Do it toward God, who sees when others don?t. Jesus is testing the reality of God in our lives. Do we really have a hunger for God himself, or a hunger for human admiration?
Quotefasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you? (6:17-18)
QuoteEven in a very free society like ours, people of faith are often treated like second-class students--sometimes, ironically, in the name of the First Amendment:
QuoteTwo students who were threatened with suspension at the College of Alameda after one of them prayed with an ailing teacher in a faculty office can sue the community college district for allegedly violating their freedom of speech, a federal judge has ruled.
Quotewith other teachers, on two occasions in November and December 2007. The second time, a day when Bell was feeling ill, another teacher entered the office and told Kyriacou, "You can't be doing that in here,"
QuoteIn seeking dismissal of the suit, lawyers for the Peralta CommunityCollege District argued that the school was entitled to designate facultyoffices as "places for teaching and learning and working," and not for"protests, demonstrations, prayer or other activities" that would bedisruptive.What if the KKK wanted to use the offices for that, that is why they have these restrictions.Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, which isrepresenting the students, said, "It is alarming that a publicly fundedcollege would seek to suspend and expel students for praying on campus,then dig in its heels to defend an untenable, unconstitutional position."
QuoteSure, they might respect the First Amendment but have they read it recently? It?s not really that hard:"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."I know the college doesn?t represent Congress but it does represent the state imposing an unreasonable restriction on any religious expression. ( My words How, the Congress or State is NOT saying you cannot exercise your religion or religious beliefs or your exercise of them, it is saying you cannot violate other citizens rights to not be subject to them in a public venue, why should Cristian have more rights than any other religious view or act? (skewing the facts here Ian.) QuoteAnd by the way, I never said what kind of prayers those were that got these women in trouble. Some of you just might have assumed they were Christian prayers while others might have heard foreign sounding names and assumed Muslim or Hindu or heard college campus and might have supposed that they were Wiccans who were offering a spell for healing or some such. Fact is, I don?t know what kind of prayers those were and according to the Constitution, it doesn?t matter. QuoteIt doesn?t matter to some people, especially in academia who believe that college campuses should be a caldron for all free thinking as long as those free thoughts don?t turn religious and that seems to be the simple Alpha and Omega of it these days.These are Public institutions and most colleges and even HS will offer a private area for students whom wish to pray together. To imply that not to allow public display of religious displays may be offensive to some or not being "a caldron for all free thinking" is a very narrow view for a man of such high religious standards to hold. Key words Ian should learn and concepts, Public Education Law and Private education. The Public education system must take into account all of the constituents and all THEIR rights. Private education you can design it the way you want but to imply that the public institutions are not free thinking is unfair to all who may teach or be an educator there.

QuoteMost Christians often treat non-christians as third class citizens or some kind oflower I.Q.'d person.
QuoteWTF? Not in MY world! In fact, I find it quite reversed - a person of faith (any deity-focused faith) is seen as suspect in terms of both intelligence and sanity.

QuoteYou my dear (if I may be so bold) are one of the few and you seem to me to think outside of the prescribed dogma and formulate usually a very rational and cohesive message . . .
QuoteI know you are sincere and not being flip
Quotedogmatic people, of all faiths, are a loud minority
QuoteYou do not assume, I hope, that all Muslims are terrorist.
QuoteTo paraphrase Ian (I hope in this instance you'll forgive me, since he is an "out" Christian we are both familiar with I thought he'd be a good example) I'm always having to explain or defend something some Christian somewhere said. I shouldn't have to do that. I'll answer for what I have said. Don't put me in the middle of that.
QuoteThat may explain some of his crankiness - it certainly resonates with me enough to explain mine.
QuoteIn short - you know the wrong Christains.
Quoteto those of you whom think it is sappy "fuck off" with all due respect .

Quote from: Centurion73 on April 13, 2009, 09:24:14 PM I was always the little heathen and they called me that because my father was an American Indian and the "whore of a mother whom brought me screaming into this world" was Italian. So, I was expected to be Catholic little did they know I was and always will be the heathen and I would and never would bow before any man.
Quote from: PhantasticSanShiSan on April 13, 2009, 11:01:08 PMCool, you're like Bronson in "The Magnificent 7". I got kicked out of Sunday school the year before confirmation because they asked some questions and I didn't know what the fuck they were talking about.
