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.
"It is helping me on my path to Christ. As there are currently very few English speaking Orthodox churches around London, by me listening to your programs it is helping me on my path to convert to the Orthodox Church. Thank you!"
