People are talkin', talking 'bout people.....

It's State Fair time again, which means the Northern Alliance Radio Network emerges from the Patriot bunker in Eagan for live, on-site broadcasts!Tonight from 5:00 until 7:00 PM, I will be live on the air for opening day of the "Great Minnesota get-together!" And since this is an election year, political guests will be in abundance.

Sometime in the 5:00 hour, I will be joined by John Rouleau with the organization Protect My Vote. PMV is doing yeoman's work to get the facts out about Voter Identification so Minnesotans have an understanding why they need to vote "Yes" on the MN Voter ID Amendment this Fall.

At 5:45, I will be joined by Jake Loesch, who is the deputy communications director for Minnesotans United For All Families, a non-partisan organization encouraging Minnesotans to vote "No" on the Marriage Amendment in November.

Then at 6:05, Janis Quinlan will be stopping by. Janis is a GOP candidate for MN State Senate in SD54, which covers Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, Hastings and Afton.

If you happen to be out at the fair this evening, feel free to stop by and say hello. We're located on Machinery Hill, which is at the north end of the fairgrounds, specifically near the corner of Underwood Street & Murphy Avenue (see map here).

You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link.

 For mobile phone users, there are cool apps available for iphone, Blackberry and Android!

Until then.....

I am a regular listener of AM 1280 and was shocked that your interview with Jake Loesch did not include an opposing viewpoint -- nor did you challenge any of his assertions.

He stated that if gay marriage becomes law, it will have no affect on Christians who believe in traditional marriage. (Sure, tell that to the CEO of Chik-Fil-A.)

You should have pointed out that Canada, which legalized gay marriage several years ago, has increasingly become intolerant of traditional Christian beliefs. "Public employees have been disciplined, businesses have been sued and churches have been threatened with sanctions over their matrimonial beliefs."
Read about it here:

I certainly hope you will give equal time to traditional marriage proponents asap. It should happened today.

As far as not challenging Jake, it was only an 8 minute segment, so there just wasn't time.

Regarding the opposing viewpoint, it did happen today. At 6:20, Pastor Brad Brandon came on as a guest and gave the pro-Marriage Amendment viewpoint. In fact, he also cited the issues Canada is having right now. Sorry you missed it.

Whatever the issue being discussed, I will not challenge a guest's assertions if both sides receive equal time. I figure I'll let them duke it out.

Thanks so much for listening!
