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 grew up Orthodox, but I never delved into it until recently. I love the music on Ancient Faith Radio. It is calming. I listen to it during work. Since I am mostly by myself it is a way to feel connected to prayer even while I am doing my job. This is a rare opportunity in our secular world. Thank you for providing this service. I hope many more people can find joy in it."
