Beneath The Surface
010 | Does religion cause violence? | Bill Morrow
Don't talk about religion or politics is the advice you normally get to prevent getting into fights - Bill Morrow and I do both in this episode of the BeneathTheSurface podcast. Does religion cause violence? The mind of the average person seems to connect the two issues - the Crusades, Islamic Jihadists, the Israeli-Palestinian conclict - but is this connection justified? We explore this question in depth in this episode, well beyond the scope of what you'd normally hear from your average pundit. Bill Morrow is the Undergraduate Chair of the Religious Studies program at Queen's University, Professor of Hebrew Scriptures, teacher of the course Religion and Violence, and one of the smartest men I know.
