    Mad, that's an awesome interview. I'd like to listen to your show, is there any way to download it in MP3 format (I don't really have the circumstances right now to listen to it via the net)?

    I especially found this part of your interview quite profound:

    When your criticism of the Watchtower is based on the view that they are doctrinally wrong, for example, about the divinity of Christ or the rejection of the cross, you are missing what I believe is the real issue: That is the Watchtower’s violation of four fundamental human rights:

    1. the right to complete and truthful information
    2. the right to think and analyze that information autonomously
    3. the right to feel whatever emotions one feels without fear of repercussions
    4. the right to choose one’s own behaviors based upon thoughtful analysis of that complete and truthful information, in a way that produces real, positive feelings of joy and friendship – and unconditional love

    The Watchtower’s biggest crime isn’t that they don’t believe in the trinity or some other such religious doctrine. It is the way they violate those four basic human rights consistently and persistently as a mechanism to mentally – and to an extent physically – enslave members of the Jehovah’s Witness religion. This isn’t being talked about anywhere else that I could find, and I think it is important to talk about it.
