With the release of his latest bestseller God,Faith, and Reason, popular talk radio host Michael Savage opened the phone lines Monday on The Savage Nation for listeners to share their insights from the book. Calls poured in with eager readers hungry to share their take on the spiritual journey chronicled in God,Faith, and Reason.
Daniel, a caller from WABC in New York, remarked that he was impacted by Savage’s reflections on witnessing the birth of his children. Savage observes in God,Faith, and Reason:
“For men reading this book, think back to when your first child was born. Think about what it was like to be in that delivery room when your child came into this world. I have spoken to men who have told me it changed their lives forever. That’s when a man becomes a different person. He may have been a tough guy before, but he’s a different man afterward. When he sees the head of his daughter or his son enter this world, he changes forever. You can’t talk about it. There are no words for this. There is no painting for it. All the sonograms in the world don’t do for you what that does for you. That’s why I recommend that all men be present when their children are born. It will make you a different man, forever. It won’t perfect you in any way. You’ll probably be the same person, but you’ll be a different same person.”
Soon, callers from across the country were sharing with Savage the intimate, yet profound influence a child’s birth had made upon their own lives.
Breaking from the political mold, Savage expounded on the value of women:
“Someone has to say it. When you see the travail that your wife goes through, you will come to appreciate how powerful a woman is and what she has to bare to bring a child into this world. And when you compare that woman, your wife, who gave you that baby with the stick figure phonies in the media, you’ll understand the difference between a woman and a stick figure produced by Harvey Weinstein. There is nothing to compare to that. You may have your troubles in your life - in your marriage. Everyone does. But in the midst of all your troubles, you will never forget that if it were not for the woman, there would be no family at all.”
In sex-crazed, scandal-driven media, Savage continues his crusade to enlighten listeners and unearths the strength and value of women.
