I'm not sure that I have anything worthwhile to contribute here but I will say that I was raised Catholic and didn't find their comment to be offensive. I also agree with the posters that individuals can be offended by some comments that others don't even notice. The OP is certainly entitled to their position. So am I.

As Amy said above, I won't let a particular comment stop me from listening to what is a very entertaining podcast.

I'm Catholic and was not offended in the least. That's not to suggest that OP isn't entitled to his own reaction. It's not a PC podcast. The team jokes around, and I wouldn't want any of them to feel like they have to censor themselves to avoid hurting someone's feelings.

Hello, I am "the disabled." Pete and the podcast team joke about me and my wheelchair all the time. It is hilarious! I absolutely love it. The team's sense of humor is awesome.

Speaking only for myself......I personally do not believe in political correctness at all. I find political correctness to be annoying. I also feel that today's society, as a whole, has gotten too uptight. Life is too short to get upset over a person's comments.

The show is what it is, and the team are who they are. Anyone who is upset by it, just should not listen. The show has been successful for many years with the same brand of humor. I hope it continues for years to come.

Thank you Skip. I've heard you on the show many times. I've never had the pleasure of meeting you but you sound like a great guy. I appreciate your attitude.

I have met Skip and he is a great guy. He also has a great attitude. Don't sweat the small stuff. Sometimes the team makes off the cuff comments, I imagine sometimes someone gets offended, there are bigger things to worry about it. It's the style of the show, always has been really. There are other options out there.

I seem to recall a rant when the issue came up about the cast member who sued about not being allowed to wear her Muslim headdress on stage. I don't remember the specifics but there may have been some comments made that some may have found offensive.

I'm sure "something" can be found on every show that "someone" finds offensive if you look hard enough.

I remember the comment about the Pope. Being Catholic, I was offended by it. Didn't like it one bit. Now, that being said, I have listened to the podcast since literally day one, have heard the round table change members, change formats for good and bad, but one thing that has always stayed the same...is the honest opinions and lack of political correctness and tactful or sensitive comments on the podcast. I have laughed my butt off to some of the comments they have made and have wanted to turn off the iPod at others...and I reckon I have turned it off once or twice.

I am not here to defend the podcast or the round table. As you can see, they have plenty of followers to do that for them. But don't sweat it. You know your Faith, you know your beliefs and you know what some others think of them. So don't hold on to it...there will be another victim tomorrow. Listen to the show for the info and entertainment. If you get hung up on those comments, this show probably isn't going to be your cup of tea. But, I hear what you're saying...
