Firstly, my prayers and deepest thoughts go to the Lane family.
The three gang youth that killed Christopher Lane in Oklahoma used some language in their tweets that on a previous show Dennis showed some ignorance in — rightfully so. So I called into the show today (8-23-2013) to offer some clarification to what he read on the air. After my story of incarceration [many years ago], Dennis blessed me with a Rabbinic proverb:
- The talmudic dictum, “In the place where penitents stand, the wholly righteous do not stand” (Ber. 34a) was popularly revised into the clearer dictum, “In the place where penitents stand, the wholly righteous are unable to stand,” stressing the superiority of the penitent more clearly than in the original.

Near the end I didn’t fully understand his question, but yes, religion (Christianity) is the best influence on people changing their lives. (Posted by: https://religiopoliticaltalk.com/)
