October 6, 2015 – Faith & Law: Freedom of Speech

Season 8, Episode 14

FreeSceech1You can’t yell fire in a crowded movie house – if there’s no fire. On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys, we discuss faith and freedom of speech. Constitution day is celebrated in the middle of September each year, but we’re extending our celebration of the United States Constitution as we focus on one of the central freedoms enjoyed by Americans: “Freedom of Speech.” It is one of the most fundamental rights to ensure the continuation of a free society. And as expansive as free speech is in the United States, there ScottRost3are limits. What do our three faith traditions have to say about free speech? Is free speech a religious value? And what are the limits in regard to free speech? Our guest today, a lawyer who brings particular skill and insight to these constitutional questions, will help us sort it all out. We’re going to exercise some free speech with lawyer Scott Rost (pictured left). That’s on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
