S12E25 Excommunication (6/18/19)

June 18, 2019
Faith & Religion:
You Are No Longer Part of A Religion When…?

Can you commit an act of treachery so heinous, so horrible, that you can be excluded from the faith of which you claim to be a part?On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, terrorism, and excommunication. If you can get kicked out of your religion for terrible acts, who makes the decision that you are no longer part of that religion? And, what exactly does that mean? We’ll tackle these difficult questions in regard to the issue of extremist violence. Is there an official – as well as an unofficial – process by which one is removed from the religion of which they claim to be a part? What do each of our three faith traditions have to say? …and how do each of us think about this issue? We’ll have a lively discussion on the issue of excommunication, or getting kicked out of your religious group – that’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
