The Orthodox Christian and Public Discourse: Racism, Bullying, Intolerance and the Media
December 06, 2013 Length: 33:55
How do the media determine public discourse? Are bullying, racism, etc., the biggest problems of our day? Are these things common or becoming bigger problems? What is at the root of these behaviors? Why do people bully? Why do they have racist attitudes? What makes people intolerant? What should we as Orthodox Christians do when we encounter these behaviors in others? What should we do when we are tempted to engage in them ourselves? What are some spiritual strategies for preparing to encounter these behaviors in others, in ourselves, or in discussion?
"I recently came across Ancient Faith Radio by accident, in my search to answer some questions to myself and to defend myself to a friend who was bashing the Orthodox Church. The things that I have learned about Orthodoxy from this site are priceless. It has helped me to grow even closer to the faith and of course to grow even more as a Christian. I cannot thank you enough. I can't get enough of this site. I listen all the time!!!!! All the way from Greece!!!"
