Neither. We don’t live in a Puritanical world anymore. I sometimes wish we did, but we don’t. We are confronted with outrageous, tasteless behavior all the time. It’s part of living in a free society. My point is that while joking about raping a woman is inappropriate for church, it’s what you’d expect from a shock jock. If you don’t like it, don’t go there. Don’t fire O & A, just switch the station and make your views known to XM—although if you’re not an XM subscriber or O & A listener to begin with, it’s none of your business.
It is perfectly acceptable for someone to call for their firing. Free speech and all, ya know.
