June 9, 2015 – Faith & Society: Violence
Season 7, Episode 23
It has been stated, often widely, that one of its main causes is religion, so on this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and violence. Crime, war, religious disputes, ideological differences, domestic relationships, and the list goes on of the many settings in which we find violence a factor. Are human beings violent by nature? Is religion one of the primary causes of violence? Is violence only a physical act, or can it be verbal, as well? If it’s verbal too, when do we consider actions, or words, to be violent? And also, is violence on the rise, worldwide? We’ll talk about all of this from the perspective of faith. Human society and violence. That conversation is coming up on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
