  • THOSE "DR LAURA" QUESTIONS ANSWERED

    Christian Voice ^ | 08/27/2013 | Stephen Green.
    Dr Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. A few years back, she said, rightly, that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstances. An open letter to Dr. Laura was penned and posted on the Internet. It has since done the rounds: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dear Dr. Laura, Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I...
  • Are Parents Boycotting Public Schools?

    Take your children out of public schools. That's what James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian organization Focus on the Family, told more than five million American listeners in a March 28 broadcast of his daily radio show. "In the state of California ... I wouldn't put [a] youngster in a public school," Dobson bluntly stated. His words sparked a campaign that reveals the extent of parental discontent with public schools. Why are they discontented? Some parents worry about the lack of religious or "moral" values; other parents point to low academic standards or bias against male students. (Dobson objected...

    The AP reports today that Dr. Laura Schlessinger will move directly from terrestrial radio syndication, through her Take On The Day shop, to Sirius XM as of January 3, 2011. Schlessinger voluntarily decided to leave terrestrial radio after the mid-August N-word controversy, and hadn’t made any announcement about her radio plans past December 31. (She already has a full schedule of other activities, including personal appearances and her writing.) It’s unclear whether this news was supposed to get out over the holiday weekend, because the AP story says “Sirius XM said Monday it has a multi-year deal with Schlessinger.” There...

    Radio personality Laura Schlesinger says she has "no regrets" regarding the tattoo she got from Glenn West at Classic Tattoo in mid-October. It's on her upper left arm and shows a skull clenching in its teeth a single rose. "It is so me," she wrote in an e-mail. "It doesn't have a name. I came up with the design because I'm a 'bad ass girly girl' (ride a Harley, skipper a racing sailboat, pump iron, hike, etc.)," she e-mailed. She has posted 13 images of the work-in-progress on her website. "My son thinks it is fabulous ('live hard'), my husband...

    * Gov. Palin retweeted Thursday: "HeyTammyBruce Liberals defended Shirley Sharrod, lecturing about importance of hearing statements 'in context' For everyone except Dr Laura of course."Tammy was spot on about the left's hypocrisy. They only want context for themselves, but deny it for opposing views. One notable exception is liberal Robert Paul Reyes, who posted this excerpt from the transcript of the phone call that got Dr. Laura into such a kettle of boiling oil: CALLER: How about the n-word? So, the n-word's been thrown around - SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a...

    In 1Cor. 8, Paul talks about the idea of going to the local heathen temple and having a steak at their restaurant/market. The believer has a right to do this, to enjoy such a steak, even though the animal was sacrificed to some heathen god. However, that believer needed to self-regulate—if such an action had an adverse affect on an immature believer, he was not to exercise this freedom. My pastor taught this passage a few years ago, spent too much time on it, and gave too few examples, but this past couple weeks have given us 2 examples of...

    I’m a long time fan of Dr. Laura. A decade ago, as a new wife and mother, I would often listen to her show and keep it on while I went about my day taking care of a newborn and getting used to being a wife and mother. As the years went by, I would pick her up on a satellite network and listen while sitting in the carpool waiting to pick up my son after school. I often agreed and other times disagreed with the responses she gave to her callers. But I enjoyed listening to the request for...

    Why is Dr. Laura quitting her radio show? Dr. Laura has been terrorized by Liberal terrorists, you think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Liberal terrorism has embedded itself into the American culture and it is as real as Islamic terrorism. Dr. Laura told Larry King that she is quitting her radio show because, “[Liberal terrorists] try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.” That sounds like terrorism to me! (see 4:09min video) You know, when I started in radio, if...

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger chose her words more carefully this time. The longtime AM radio fixture says that she will pull the plug on The Dr. Laura Program at the end of the year, a week after repeatedly using the N-word while taking a call on the air from a black woman who wanted to discuss her interracial marriage. She made the announcement during an appearance on Larry King Live. Here's her rationale: "My contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I've made the decision not to do radio anymore," Schlessinger told King, who...

He wanted to alert me of Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s most recent travail with the archaic notion of freedom of speech in America. According to my friend, Dr. Laura said the word Nigger. After a lingering pause, my friend obviously waiting for my response, I said half jokingly, “…and then she killed someone?” but to my friend this was no laughing matter.

Schlessinger said on her website Wednesday that she was wrong in using the word for what she called an attempt to make a philosophical point. "I articulated the N-word all the way out — more than one time," Schlessinger said in comments from the opening of her radio show that she posted on her site. "And that was wrong.

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger contends that President Obama should reject the Nobel Peace Prize — and what the prize has come to mean. The popular talk show host opened her program Friday by telling her 9 million listeners that she believes the Nobel committee has become an anti-American organization that has sought to use its awards to influence world opinion and American policy to its own ends. She noted that in 1994, one of the three recipients to whom it awarded the Peace Prize was Yasser Arafat, for his “efforts to promote peace in the Middle East"

    he first week of April had me visiting many of the major national television programs to talk about my new book, "In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms." One typical concern various interviewers shared was the problem of taking care of children at home by a parent when there’s been a divorce, which generally results in day care and a working custodial parent . . . usually the mother. I respond by pointing out two concepts I believe are “truths.” One, that the quality of love and attention of a parent is superior to that of hired help (nanny, day-care worker, baby...

Schlessinger was the keynote speaker at the City of Arcadia's Community Breakfast, which was reportedly sold out. Hiding behind comments by "anonymous" persons who attended the event who Miller failed to identify, we read that Schlessinger (erroneously) believes "that gay people are biological errors," that her views are "caustic...

    Many Americans doubt the morality of atheists. According to a 2007 Gallup poll, a majority of Americans say that they would not vote for an otherwise qualified atheist as president, meaning a nonbeliever would have a harder time getting elected than a Muslim, a homosexual, or a Jew. Many would go further and agree with conservative commentator Laura Schlessinger that morality requires a belief in God—otherwise, all we have is our selfish desires. In The Ten Commandments, she approvingly quotes Dostoyevsky: "Where there is no God, all is permitted." The opposing view, held by a small minority of secularists, such...

But last week even she outdid herself, as she blamed Elliot Spitzer's long-suffering wife, Silda, for her husband's unfaithfulness with a prostitute. Speaking on the Today show, Dr. Laura opined: "When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like our hero, he's very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs.

Typical liberal behavior: Assuming everyone wants to hear (and agree with) your message — and no accountability when your ideas fail. "Talk that women really DON'T want" was driven out by low ratings, as women didn't care for their messages. Does that mean women don't want to listen to other women? No. The surprise in the article is that large numbers of women are turning to conservative talk, and conservative female talk hosts are thriving. Carrie Lukas at The New York Post offered the...

    BOOK OF ABOVE TITLE FROM BETHANY HOUSE PUBLISHER | 2005 | PAUL COUGHLIN; Review by Quix
    This book is excellent. It speaks to thoughts, feelings, facts I've long had strong similar to identical convictions about. Excerpts from Dr Laura's Foreword: " . . . sold more than one million copies of [I] The Proper Care And Feeding of Husbands [/I]" . . .

What touched me the most was the sad, pained, resigned letters I received from so many nice men who were suffering deeply. These men explained that while they were deeply in love with their wives, those wives...

    Back in March, I received an e-mail from a stranger. He identified himself as Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s producer. He explained that they were planning for her to do a one-woman stage show. Although the second act would consist entirely of Dr. Laura’s answering written questions from the audience, they wanted a funny script for the opening act. Would I be interested in having a meeting? Sure, I’m game for just about anything that doesn’t involve heavy lifting or getting on an airplane. So it was that a couple of weeks later, I drove up the coast to Schlessinger’s home in...

    When Ted Koppel, host of ABC's "Nightline" program, announced last year he'd recite the names of 721 fallen soldiers on Memorial Day, a firestorm of controversy erupted. Conservative groups protested, a major television station owner boycotted the show and a fierce debate raged for days about Koppel's motives. Sinclair Broadcasting of Baltimore yanked the program that evening from all of its ABC stations, saying it was a partisan attempt to boost John Kerry's sagging poll numbers, by highlighting the toll of Bush's decision to invade Iraq. It's a whole different ballgame this year,
