122: Orthodox Christianity and Capitalism Revisited
June 26, 2009 Length: 51:50
The previous podcast on this subject stimulated comments about whether we covered the bases on this issue fully or dispassionately enough. In this conversation, Fr John Whiteford, (ROCOR) priest and frequent conservative commentator and blogger, and Dr. Amir Azarvan, (ROCOR) layman, political science lecturer, and self-described "social democrat," talk about poverty, the welfare state, whether alms-giving is spiritually effective if government mandated, and the best way to live out the Orthodox Christian life in the world.
"AFR is wonderful! It helps me to be centered with my faith around the clock, especially at the office where sometimes we tend to forget our values. This has been long overdue. Thank you! I will be donating soon."
