September 23, 2014 – Faith & Culture: Terrorists Who Act in the Name of Religion
Season 6, Episode 13
On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss two very important topics: the Jewish high holy days, and also terrorists who say they act in the name of religion.
First, the Jewish High Holy Days begin at sunset on September 24, also in early October is the season of The Hajj for the Islamic community, the time of pilgrimage to Mecca. We’ll talk about the meanings and practices behind these sacred seasons.
Then, with the civilized world continuing to reel from the most recent acts of barbaric terrorism — the beheading of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and British aid worker David Haines, we’ll discuss responses, especially from the religious community in the US, and around the world.
