Daniel and many, many callers today talked about the Largo City Council’s embarrassment that is the Steve Stanton firing. Despite nationwide and local outcry and a most likely very costly discrimination lawsuit as a result, the cowards of Largo fired Stanton anyway. Daniel Ruth had this to say on the issue on today’s show.
Daniel called them gutless and thinks Stanton has a pretty solid case of sex discrimination against the city of Largo. He also said the City Council discriminated against Steve Stanton, who just until a couple of weeks ago, was doing a good job and was highly rated as the City Manager. He’s basically being fired because he’s undergoing a surgical procedure. He doesn’t know how you morally justify what the City Council did last night. If he was an able, competent City Manager as Steve Stanton, why will he not be able and competent as Susan Stanton? Daniel called the City Council Vagina Vigilantes. He said he thinks the city will wind up paying a dear price for their ignorance. He also said he doesn’t think God cares what Steve Stanton does.
- David in Tampa said he was disappointed but not surprised. He blamed the decision on uneducated, evil, bible waving individuals.
- Brent in Bradenton asked the question where does morality come from? What is your moral compass? He said it comes down to the way we were made. He said what Stanton is doing is a result of a corruption of the mind. He talked about Stanton making a decision to go against the way he’s been made. He then when on to say what Stanton wants to do goes against the holy standard of God. Daniel asked how he knew that, Brent couldn’t give a specific word for word biblical reference that said changing one’s gender was “immoral” as he called it.Brent said it was immoral to change one’s appearance. Daniel said what about a breast change, ear piercing, or nose job? Apparently to Brent, that’s immoral too.
- Paul in Marco Island called and said if Brent wants to say changing one’s appearance is immoral, then cutting one’s nails, hair, or shaving a beard must also be immoral.
- Bo in Tampa said what about circumcision, is that immoral? He also said why do men have nipples, did God make a mistake when creating man? He said it’s a real shame and a real testament to our society right now and the lack of enlightenment in society. He said he feels sorry for Stanton.
