May 23, 2017 – Faith & Religion: Stop Apologizing for Religious Extremists
– The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel, guest
Season 10, Episode 22
Are you tired of apologizing for religious extremists that have nothing to do with your own faith? This week on Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, religious extremists, and just how weary people get who practice GOOD FAITH – apologizing for those with BAD FAITH. You hear it all the time, “those people don’t represent what I believe! Or, it is impossible to do something like that and call yourself a member of my faith community. Or, I’m so sorry, I know people who claim to be part of my religion have done these things – I feel so terrible about it!” Today, we’ll talk with a resident expert theologian – her recent book is entitled, “Tired of Apologizing for a Church I Don’t Belong To – Spirituality Without Stereotypes, Religion Without Ranting.” The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel will bring her unique insights and great spiritual depth to this conversation. Our conversation with the Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel (pictured here) about religious extremism and why we’re all tired of apologizing for it. Listen now to this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
