Exclusive Interview/A Hot One!: Phil Donahue On Church/State/God/Government, My Arrogance And The Glorious Fun Of Living According To “Doubt” — Arghhhhhhhhhh!
Well, the idea was to praise Phil Donahue because not long ago he demolished Bill O’Reilly in a discussion about the Iraq War. Phil actually invoked our Constitution. He was great. And I did this. I praised Phil. But, then, early on, the “religion” issue came up. I said something that indicated I might be critical of the “separate church/state” idea and that I might actually believe there is a God. Phil picked up on this and reacted like a vampire confronted with a cross, like a werewolf who woke up wearing a garlic necklace and with a silver bullet on the table next to him. Phil — well — just listen. Comments invited. And do, please, remember to pray for his salvation and the salvation of his household.
