October 18, 2016 – Faith & Society: “Othering” and Dehumanization
Season 9, Episode 42
Is Xenophobia at an all-time high — or — is it not? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and Dehumanizing the “OTHER.” When we see someone that we don’t know is our natural response to be afraid of them? Or, is that a learned response? What do our various faith traditions have to say about the other? And how do we guard against dehumanizing one another? It can be pretty easy to do when we just don’t like somebody or when we don’t like their ideas. We’ll sort it out today, together. The other – what our faith offers as guidance in regard to how we treat the other – and our human tendency to dehumanize people – that conversation is coming up on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
