Love a witty wordplay in a title. Can’t wait to listen to this. Sounds like an interesting story.

This is a shameful title, and Castbox should be penalized for promoting a show that is disrespecting a sacred Catholic belief. As a previous commenter said, they would never do this to another religion. The show could have been exactly the same with a less disrespectful title.

I totally agree with you, Michael Savage. Killing coyote and other animals with cyanide poisoning is especially inhumane and unnecessary! I hope our President gets your message, but fast!! We are all God's children.

Please consider how your sacreligeous show title affects the millions of people who hold the Immaculate Conception as sacred. You wouldn't do the same with Islam or Hinduism. Then why do so with Catholicism?
