Phil hosts a Steve Bosell replay from the Marathon. Steve is invited to a men’s group then worries he’s been spotted and will wind up in the local newspaper.
The BSP Only Classic Hour is from December 2004. Pastor William Rennick has a sermon he is preaching called “Crisis in Faith.” He argues that while everyone celebrated the birth of Jesus, it was a slap to the face of Joseph as his wife was pregnant with the child of another “man.” God.

It’s not just that particular bit, Phil. In general, Steve isn’t nearly as *violently* emotional today as was in the late 90s and early 2000s.
A perfect example is the “gay ring finger” bit, also from 2000. It might have been a part of the marathon, which I didn’t have the opportunity to listen to.
Steve found out about the UCLA study which suggested that if your ring finger is longer than your index finger, that could be a biological indicator of homosexuality. Naturally, Steve was distraught. One of your staff went the extra mile and prompted Steve with “Clang, clang, clang went the trolley.” Readily able to complete the line, you informed Steve that his knowledge of Judy Garland’s work indicated that “he’s queer.”
Steve was utterly disconsolate. You told your staff to get him the number for a doctor; all Steve cared about was whether the doctor “could turn him from queer.”
One of my all-time favorite Bosell bits to this day.
Sorry can’t deal with the old stuff. I’m a panel fan all the way.
