December 5, 2017 – Faith & Society: Sexual Abuse and Religion
with The Rev. Kathy Schmitz
Season 10, Episode 49
Is religion a major culprit in sexual abuse, sexual harassment and the missed treatment of women? On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and the role of religion in the abuse and mistreatment of women. It is a commonly held belief by many that religion plays a major role in the missed treatment of women, the waging of war, and a number of other social ills plaguing our society. Today we’ll have a frank and honest discussion about the role religion has played in regard to the missed treatment and sometimes abuse of women. We will explore this with one of our good friends who is also a clergy person and a woman. Together, we’ll have an honest discussion about this often volatile subject. On this episode A Wise Woman – the Rev. Kathy Schmitz – teams up with The Three Wise Guys for an open and honest discussion about the role religion too often plays in the oppression of women – that’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
