S11:E26 Children.Immigration (6/26/18)

June 26, 2018 – Faith & Society: Keeping Faith with the Children

with Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy & Mr. Dick Batchelor

Season 11, Episode 26

What are the lessons from history and faith when a nation seems to have lost its moral compass? On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we will discuss faith, the crisis at the border, and the national crisis that occurs when we ignore our most important moral values. It is called, “zero tolerance,” by Donald Trump and his administration. It has meant that thousands of children have been separated from their parents as they have crossed the borders into the United States of America – some for political asylum, some for safety reasons, and some for a better life. Many Americans – across political party lines – have expressed emotions which range from deeply concerned to completely outraged by this draconian policy decision. We will talk with both a member of Congress, and a lifelong child advocate. Both will bring their unique perspectives. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy and Mr. Dick Batchelor will talk with us. Also we will consider the question “what would Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad have to say about what’s going on?” – that’s on this Friends Talking Faith.
