April 1, 2006 Radio Program Rant

You know that I am not a computer guru. For some reason I don’t understand, my computer puts some messages that I want to read in my spam folder. So I have to dig through my spam folder several times a day just to make sure a letter from you hasn’t ended up in there. And --- here is a spam that attracted my attention because it says Lou Gentile talks with spirits and you can hear it live. It says, Don't believe? Lou has been doing this type of communication for many years and within the last 2 years has been letting people experience this first hand with 100% success! End of quote.

It is my understanding from the little I read that the gifted Mr. Gentile makes a lot of money going around saying what people obviously want to hear.

I don’t know what you think of this kind of activity, but perhaps you agree with me that it at least warrants our superficial consideration. For thousands of years billions of people have spoken words to an entity that they have never seen and because billions of people have done it for thousands of years it has become not only a normal, socially acceptable behavior but, for many, a psychological necessity.

But --- nowadays when one person claims he hears a voice talking back it suddenly becomes paranormal activity and a lot of people who pray every day would say that Lou Gentile is crazy.
