    B.O.W. (BIBLICALLY OBEDIENT WOMEN) PRESIDENT DEBATES ROSSI ON WOMEN

    in Entertainment

    JIMMY CARTER quits church because they "use Bible to subjugate women."  Does Bible teach women are to be subservient to men? Is this healthy?  Richard & comic Brooke Arnold debate woman-hating fundamentalist Rev. Daniel Hyles, head of B.O.W. (BIBLICALLY OBEDIENT WOMEN).  Callers include an apostolic female preacher, a transgender woman, a Hollywood actress, & an agnostic.  Hyles is "dedicated to change women's roles back to 'obedient wives.'"  Hyles comments on President Carter's decision today to leave the Southern Baptists.  "B.O.W. stands for 'Biblically Obedient Women," Hyles says.  "Women are to submit to man as unto God, & call him 'Lord,' as Sara did Abraham.  Carter is headed for hell unless he returns to teaching the Word that women must bow."


    President Carter's statement that will be discussed on show reads as follows:


    "Women & girls have been discriminated against for too long in a twisted interpretation of the word of God.  I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength & comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful & difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention's leaders, quoting a few carefully selected verses & claiming Eve was created second to Adam & was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to their husbands & prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in military service."

    in Entertainment

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview celebrity Johnny Whitworth.


    Johnny Whitworth is an American actor born in Charleston, SC, on October 31, 1975. Whitworth grew up moving throughout the south before heading to Los Angeles at age 15 to pursue his acting career.

    In the early 90’s, he quickly achieved teen idol status after playing the wildly popular role of “A.J.” in the cult hit ,Empire Records. This came shortly after making one of his first acting debuts in the award-winning television series,Party of Five.  Johnny also appeared, over a span of four years, in the beloved recurring role of “Detective Jake Berkeley” on the series CSI: Miami. Johnny recently returned to primetime television in the role of “Cage Wallace”, in Season Two of the popular series,The 100.

Johnny portrays “Kent Kendall”, a Gulf War Veteran suffering from PTSD among other elements, upon returning home from an intense military combat tour.

    Chat with Romance Author Karen Rossi of Etopia Press

    in Lifestyle

    Born in Finland—the land of flowers, of brilliant blue lakes, of endless summer nights, of saunas, and the ancient, mystic runes that sprang from the long, dark winter nights. So it’s natural that these elements find their way into Karen Rossi's writing. She began to write very early but didn’t start to seriously submit until she was past forty. She has  also self-published a book of her poetry and have done several translations of children’s books from Finnish to English, but writing romance is definitely her # 1 serious love.
