No Strings With Mike Daemon (Episode 16)

No Strings With Mike Daemon (Episode 16)

stephen-posterblog-useIn this episode, NOSTRINGS joins up with Stephen Lovatt, a gay English Catholic and a writer of poetry, philosophy and theology, to discuss the subject “Speaking Out, Gaining Courage and Overcoming Fear”. This of course touches on issues concerning homosexuality in general, and as well logically differentiates between tolerance and acceptance. It also identifies and discusses reasons why the international community is refusing to sanction certain countries that has gone ahead to criminalize same sex relationships, and above all suggests possible approaches that one could adopt especially in the area of being able to speak up against discrimination as it concerns LGBTIQ persons.

    I loved this episode when I listened to it.. Makes so much sense. We all have a part to play in making this country better for LGBT. We need to stop waiting for a saviour.

        I’ve heard him speak chuck and I don’t think he’s “trying” to have an accent. I’m not sure why there are breaks in the way he speaks while on no strings..

        And you really need to stop listening if the so called accent nauseates you? Why inflict such torture on yourself. If you feel he’s got something good/important/educational to say then listen, gather whatever information you’re there for and try not to be unnecessarily mean.

      That’s ok, no need to talk like my neighbors. Just talk like yourself, how about that? The various personalities you express with your varying accents make it hard to pay attention to what you are saying.

      Listen to this podcast from 01: 53 to 02:01. Your accent goes around the world and back. Haba!
